The house was impeccable and spacious. We loved it very much. The grounds were unkept and everything is a bit moth eaten. No wifi, DSTV or breakfast as offered on website.The electric fence between the property and Kruger Park collapsed long ago and is lying scattered on the ground.BUT we will go again! The most beautiful big trees and the bird life to die for. Elephants and hippos and other animals right opposite the river bed.

We we're totally disgusted when we saw were we where supposed to sleep. There was no duvet inner on the bed - just a very old duvet cover and a blanket underneath. The sheet was burned by an iron - the mark clearly on the sheet. The whole cottage looked old and seriously needs an upgrade. What you see on the photo on the website and what you actually get is NOT THE SAME!!!!!!!!! Will never recommend this to any our friends or family. I would give them no star rating at all but I cannot submit this without a star. So the 1 star is supposed to be 0 star
