The staff was very friendly and helpful but the manager was very rude and unfriendly. She didn't make us feel welcome at all. I'm very disappointed.

We stayed one night at Mufasa Backpackers. we arrived from OR Tambo airport with our rented car.It was very easy to find it due the easy directions that the owners gave us. The hostel was very clean and beautiful. The owners were extremely nice and made us feel like home. We loved this place and definitely will come back in our next trip to South Africa.

The lodge is nearby Johannesburg airport (~20 min) so after a long flight and before the sunset – we arrived the lodge fast and safely.The lodge is nice and clean and we stayed there 1 night before starting our trip towards the Kruger. The owners welcomed us nicely and shared with us their recommendation about traveling in the Park and around. One should know the bathroom are shared and not within a room. However, the low price makes it very understandable.
