                              We did not enjoy our stay. So much so that the further 2 nights we booked directly we canceled and booked at an establishment close by.

                              We were very disappointed in Krugerview Backpackers. Was there 3y ago and the place really went down hill. The yard and the house are in need of a clean up. Swimmingpool look more like a frog pond. No decent braai facilities and on the deck area there's only a few chairs and one table. The room we slept in was clean and the bedding old but clean. We were supposed to stay 3 nights but we only stayed for 2.

                              Just a little but of cleaning up of junk laying around goes a long way. Washing lines at throat height and wooden planks laying about when you need to go to the toilet at night seems quite hazardous. Especially if the uneven path is not very well lit. The place is not very neat at all. We did not venture into the kitchen....It doesn't matter how cheap the accommodation is, basic tidiness is expected.

                              We had a very poor experience at Kruger View. Despite booking several months in advance, our host wasn't expecting us and put us in a very basic room outside of the main building. The room was clean, but several bugs and spiders crept in during the evening, which didn't go down well with any of us. The pool was dirty and the grounds in very poor repair, with bits of wood and glass stacked under staircases. The seating area inside was nice, but the kitchen facilities were cramped and not particularly clean. The whole place needs a massive re-vamp if it is to live up to the 'upmarket hostel'...

                              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.
