We stayed the last night of our honeymoon in one of the luxury rooms (log cabin no.5) and wished we would have been able to stay another. The rooms and the premises (including a large and beautiful garden) are very cozy and beautifully decorated. No TV but beautiful bathtub, extremely comfortable bed, aircon and a lot of small amenities, like an umbrella, magazines, etc. in the rooms. Possibility to have dinner - superadvisable. Cooked deliciously by Marianne who runs the place together with her husband Paul (who is fluent in German, by the way). Both were really friendly and have a lot good tips for excursions and things to see in the area.
About 3 hours from the airport of Johannesburg and about 1 hour from Kruger, this is the perfect place to spend your first or last days of a south africa trip - book 2 nights, you won't regret it. Of all the places we have been to, one of the best value for money ratios.
