Stayed here two nights as part of our South African tour . It is a perfect stopover for Kruger park being only 20-30 min from the gate. The accommodation we stayed in was in individual thatched huts for 2 some have tvs and fridges and others don't so ask for these when booking . Rooms a bit dark but its all part of the charm with the thatched roof . Two nice heated pools and even though it was winter we had a lovely swim. Hotel is on the Sabi river and seemingly hippos can sometimes be seen on the hotel grounds in the evening but we didn't see any. We did see a crocodile however.
There is free internet only in the reception area but it is very slow and doesn't always work . A good buffet dinner was 165 rand ( about £12) and had roast springbok at the carvery. Desserts were very good. Breakfast was usual fare and very tasty but dishes of food could be organised a little better to avoid congestion
Rooms comfortable and very quiet at night.Staff very friendly and helpful.
