Kruger Cottage is a nice and cosy place. Everything was comfortable and clean.We had lovely two days in Marloth Park and time was much to short.Watching the animals close by was amazing.Joan thank you very much for all the additional Information provided!

Our stay at Kruger cottage was amazing. Everything was perfect. the pool was a lifesaver as well as the corner bath. We especially adored the zebra and Vlakvark coming to our door for snacks. You cant buy that kind of nature anywhere or at any other accommodation. The rooms where cosy and neat and tidy.The only suggestion would be to install air conditioner in the rooms. Other than that, there was nothing to complain about. We where so impressed, we have decided to book again with Joan in 2 months time. We had a car accident in the Kruger National park during our stay, Joan was on the ball...

We had a magical 3 nights at Kruger Cottage! My overseas guests were enchanted by the wildlife that came to visit the cottage , being able to feed the Zebra, Kudu and Pumba's as the children called them, was a definite highlight of their stay!We will be back for sure!

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.
