It takes a while to get there (dirt road, but very doable with a normal car), but it's worth it! The staff welcomed us and immediately showed us around and offered something to drink. We had our own tent and could camp in their beautiful garden with trees and lovely horses roaming around. There are no ablutions for the campsite, but we could use the bathroom of one of the rooms, which was perfect for us. You can book dinner there (with vegetarian option) but there is also a nice self-catering kitchen with a fridge and a microwave and everything. We visited the Emdoneni Cat Rehabilitation Center and the Hluhluwe-iMfolozi Park. We also enjoyed the Zulu dance performed by the staff one evening. And special thanx because we could watch the important Croatia-Belgium football match in the bar (and luckily Belgium won and is going to Brazil! :-))
