This lodging is owned and operated by Viva Safaris of JNB (firstname.lastname@example.org). It is an excellent place to base out of to do wildlife viewing in Kruger Game Park utilizing the Orpen Gate. Especially during the dry season an abundance of animals can be viewed in the Park between Orpen and Satara. We saw the Big 5 on three out of the 4 days we went into the Park!
The staff at the Inn were very helpful and accommodating - responding quickly and efficiently to our requests. We enjoyed a refreshing swim in the pool in the late afternoon sun followed by scrumptous dinners outside near the campfire.
My wife and I led two groups of Habitat for Humanity volunteers to Mozambique to build houses and worked with Viva Safaris and Cheetah Inn to offer some rest and recreation before returning home. It was great value and a pleasant experience.
