“Great Stay near the Kruger”
Reviewed 24 October 2012

What a lovely stay we had during our breakaway weekend near the Kruger National Park. Both the owners was friendly and would go that extra mile to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. We had the whole 3 bedroom house to ourselves with a patio and pool. The owner took us on a game drive as soon as we arrived at the lodge and drove a while longer than he was supposed to, also try a cooked meal prepared by the hostess, she is a really good cook.

This lodge is a real gem in all its facilities and graceful hosts. They have real good clean lodge and a pool, patio overlooking the rivebed where animals keep moving in and out. We took a safari tour and treated to one of best dinners. Dont miss the culinary skills of hostess.
