Enjoyed our weekend here as a launching point for day trips to kruger. The family room was quite spacious and the staff was exceptionally friendly. The outside area was a quiet and appealing place to watch the animals come down to the river. Elephant encounters were common including an elephant pass by literally meters from the restaurant. Food was also quite good. My only recommendation would be to extend the wifi from the common areas to the lodge rooms. Highly recommend

Goed hotel, mooie ruime kamers, uitzicht was super, keek zo op het Krugerpark. Veel dieren gezien. Zowel ontbijt als diner waren goed verzorgt. WiFi werkte slecht.
