About Rafiki's Resthouse

Free Wifi.Rafiki's Resthouse is very close to the Crocodile river (2 mins walk through our garden) where one can see elephant, hippo, buffalo, rhino and if lucky lion. It is also close to the Crocodile bridge entrance gate at Kruger (12 mins drive).The house is not rented out to different parties.Due to the old trees and the shade, we have an exceptional range of animals visiting daily. If you want to relax in the bush in full privacy, our place is the answer.The spacious double-storey house has four bedrooms (everywhere AC; also ceiling fans in all) and three bathrooms. There is a fully equipped kitchen, two lounges, two terraces outside with braai facilities and a large private garden with a splash pool and swimming pool. Rafiki's Resthouse is not only near the Crocodile River where you can have your morning walks or your evening sundowner, it also has easy access to the restaurants and the two shopping centres within the park, and is a mere 12 minutes to the Crocodile Gate at Kruger National Park. Groups that mainly come to party are not welcome as respect for the animals and the environment is our priority. Children are in principle allowed but we expect parents to keep an eye on them (no fishing in our garden pond, correct behaviour with animals, respect for everything in and around the house).Wifi possible on demand. Shops nearby. Daily detailed cleaning at a small fee. Home cooking possible.

Safari: Watching game in the garden and by the river close by. Go on guided or unguided safaritrips in Marloth park or Kruger.
