We loved the singing of the birds, the hippos grunting and even spotted an elephant across the river. This lovely place is right next to the fence that encircles the entire Kruger Park. It is a 15 min drive to Kruger Gate. We were primarily self catering but we did go to the evening buffet which is served several nights each week. Food was fantastic! Luscious salads, curried carrot s, grilled veggies and then a meat selection from the grill! Custard, fresh fruit and homemade bread pudding for dessert! We were quite happy with our bedroom, air conditioned big tent that cooled down great!...

This is a great place to stay for the weekend and right on the Kurger's doorstep. We had a lovely view of the Sabie River. The staff are very friendly and accommodating and went out of their way to make sure we were happy. Our vehicle was washed every day while we were there. Thanks so much SRBL :-)
