About Hakuna Matata

A lovely three-bedroom, fully air-conditioned house with splash pool and a four poster bed. It has a large viewing deck with a built-in barbecue where you are able to watch animals including zebra, warthog, various antelope, monkeys and many more in the garden.

We have tried to think of everything a family or a group of friends could need. There is full deck furniture with a dining table with eight chairs for all fresco living so that you can listen to the lions roaring and hippos grunting from inside the Kruger National Park while you dine.

The house is only a 100 metres from the Crocodile River and a 15 minute drive from the Crocodile Gate entrance into Kruger Park. The house is serviced once a week with a full linen change. A minimum stay of three nights is required.

There are also several nice restaurants in Marloth Park only a couple of minutes drive from the house. Guided game viewing, bike hire and fishing trips are locally available as are rafting, hot air ballooning, microlight flights and cultural tribal visits. There are several lovely golf courses nearby and full supermarket facilities at Melalane and Komatipoort. Where else can you safely walk amongst plains game and view the Big Five on foot through the Kruger electric fence? The house is connected to a security service with a rapid armed response team.

      The overall place was well presented and had all the facilities and neccesities available and at to our disposal. We are definitely looking at coming back to visit in the near future. We have also marketed the accommodation with all of our family members and friends.

      Our stay at Hakuna Matata was an absolute delight! A stone's throw away from the Crocodile River, it was ideally placed for our morning bike rides/jogs along the river's edge. (Marloth offers some single track along the river to the look-out point that isn't too technical for MTB beginners). The clean and spacious house is well-equipped; and the air-cons provided some much-needed relief from the December heat. We also thoroughly enjoyed the pool and upper deck (with braai facilities). Great stay!

      The house is spacious, comfortable and well equipped. The air conditioners were very welcome in the extreme December heat.We loved the nightly visits by the resident bush babies.

      We loved the convenience of the air conditioners. most days were 40 degrees so the little pool and the air-con was a winner. Inside the house is comfortable with all you need and the deck upstairs was lovely to have sun downers on with a braai later!

      Thank you Jim for the use of your lovely home! So much space, neat, clean and tidy with everything a family needs. We saw lots of animals, and every visit to the Crocodile River was met with seeing elephants, rhino and buck. We had a wonderful break.
