We enjoyed it very much. Everything was clean and nice. Wish we could have stayed longer.

This place is a find. The room was much more spacious and with better facilities than anything available within Kruger Park itself (excluding the donor houses of course). It's a stone's throw from the Crocodile Bridge gate where there is a fast track system for entry so getting in and out of the park is a doddle. The staff are friendly and helpful. I will be going there again and telling my friends about it.

Elephant Walk is not fancy but is quite cheap. Its close proximity to Crocodile Bridge (300m) makes it super convenient.The unit we used (three beds) had an en-suite bathroom and a small communal kitchen. We also had an air-con which is a big plus point.

My family and I had a fantastic stay at the retreat. Mike helped with directions to the retreat and shortcuts, missing roadworks. The accommodation was very pleasant, clean and neat. Awesome view overlooking the Kruger Park. Will definitely be going back for some pleasant R&R.

Very convenient for access to the park. The place needs a bit of maintenance work done but otherwise great stay was had by all.

Kruger Africa Safaris

Kick back in an open safari vehicle on a tour of Kruger National Park. Qualified FGSA field guides will introduce you to the Big 5 and seek for the Magnificent 7. Definitely a far more enjoyable Kruger experience than self-driving in a small sedan.
