"Lovely garden and views"

Wait staff were very friendly but could be better trained, and the lady in charge also seemed to neglect things: e.g. there was still a plate of prawn shells on our table, while we were having dessert. One does not want the smel..."

"Enjoyed our weekend here as a launching point for day trips to kruger. The family room was quite spacious and the staff was exceptionally friendly. The outside area was a quiet and appealing place to watch the animals come down to the river. Elephant encounters were common including an elephant pass by literally meters from the restaurant. Food was also quite good. My only recommendation would be to extend the wifi from the common areas to the lodge rooms. Highly recommend "


"Goed hotel"

"Clean and comfortable"

(South Africa) Robert Scott | 11 November 2015

"Perfect location, many rooms"

(Germany) Ralf Plattfaut | 24 April 2014

"Not so personal due to big property with many rooms, good food, nice viewing deck, perfect location.

Experienced 2 water outages due to bursting pipes in the community, not the fault of the management"
