Firstly, if you want to stay here make sure you're in the Lion or Leopard suites or don't bother. The Buffalo accommodation is some considerable distance from the lodge and steeply uphill, not recommended for older travellers or those with young kids. Get hold of them beforehand to make sure you have a clear river view, otherwise you'll feel you're staying in a mediocre timeshare brick apartment, anywhere. This isn't a bad place, but it needs updating and some strategic customer focus. At our arrival, the reception person was on the phone for the entire welcome. Papers were thrust at us for signing, and that was it. Our toilet seat was cracked and mosquito netting on the door broken. The food quality we found pretty good for carnivores, not so much for vegetarians. The desserts could've used less pastry. On the whole though, a great location for access to Kruger, with stunning views - be sure to be up by 5am for the queue for access to the park though!
