This is THE PLACE to stay when you (tourist) are travelling to of from the Kruger Park Area to Johannesburg (or direction). An oasis of peace and tranquillity in a wonderful setting, run by the most dedicated people in the business ! Attention to detail is extraordinary and you are really taken care of from the moment you arrive, till the moment you (have to) leave. It is a place (and a "family") you will never forget.
Our visit was cut short after one day because of a serious electricity problem (not at the Lodge I may add, but in town where a big transformer had exploded). The first evening in the Lodge we had a superb dinner by candle light (superb !!!) The second day however, the power was not back and as precaution the owners booked all of their guest in a nearby Lodge for they could not offer the comfort and service they would provide. Imagine this gesture and display of pro-active thinking and handling ... Not at all necessary, but greatly appreciated. A great place, with excellent personal service and truly committed staff to match !!! GREAT
