It is a South African Restaurant in Malelane. Close to the Kruger National Malelane Gate. This restaurant is on the banks of the crocodile river overlooking the Kruger National Park.
Me and my husband were having dinner while suddenly without no noice there was a elephant pasing by. And then waterbuck. Strange to see them moving at night. The restaurant have a relaxing atmosphere. Staff are friendly and the food excellant. Not expensive but prepared just the why you want it. Breakfast superb and then there are quite a lot of moving in the Kruger. Lots of birds like Fish Eagles , geese and lot more. Redbucks, elephant, and hippos we saw quite a lot that morning, without being in the Kruger.

This restaurant is on the banks of the Crocodile River overlooking the Kruger National Park. Enjoy a scrumptious meal while wild animals graze on the banks of the river. Elephants, hippos, are common sight. Good food ( portuguese touch !) good service good value.

Nice food, really good service, but the view is the best feature of this restaurant. Saw an elephant and some water buck while having dinner. Great with kids.
One strong advice: don't put the red win in the fridge!
