      This was a perfect start to our three-week trip through South Africa. We were very warmly welcomed, had a nice dinner and interesting conversation with the hosts, including some tips for our trip.The rooms, pool and location are all nice. We would definitely recommend Boven Trout Lodge as a good stopover on the way to Kruger.
