Daily service a great plus! Great to come back after an early morning drive in the bush to a neat and organised bush accommodation. The layout of the house was good planning. Two families together but with great privacy.

Bad communication between SafariNow and Josi the owner. Approved my dates , send me confirmation , only to change it later without making sure I am informed. The result me and my family was forced one day earlier out of the house , and had to look for other accommodation at our own expense.

We love the house it was nice and always clean.I already told you about the matresses that really need replacement, the taps need to be looked at they are dripping and waste lots of water.Otherwise everything was really good. We enjoy sitting on the veranda and just listen to the sound of animals. Pity we could not meet you. Thanks for your house we enjoyed it.LuviesAmanda

The accommodation is well equipped and in a good position just outside the Paul Kruger Gate. We enjoyed seeing kudu, impala, hyena & genet in close proximity to the house.Unfortunately our stay was spoiled by the disappearance of some money from our belongings during our stay. This has been reported to the owners, who have responded & undertaken to investigate.
