Nothing I can think of

The location of this lodge was great if travelling to Kruger National Park, but the chalets get so hot on the inside! My husband and I had a terrible night, although we had the fan on at its highest speed. The space was way too warm and to make matters worse, our mosquito nets had holes in them and we had a mosquito swarming around us in this malaria zone! Dinner was good and we enjoyed the beef fillet, but there were no options for dessert besides the tiramisu. No one from our group drinks alcohol and we therefore had to pass on this alcoholic dessert option, with nothing else to choose from....

Best overnight-er on a short drive of open gate Kruger park. Wonderful atmosphere. Lovely outside dining. Great hospitality. This is the place to visit.

We enjoyed everything about the place, especially the African décor and layout. The staff are friendly, rondavels are well equipped and the food was marvelous. We also enjoyed ourselves with the open fire at the braai area. We were impressed with our stay and would definitely revisit.
