We spent a night here on the 29th October 2016. Chalet accommodation, well appointed, clean and comfortable. Very good value for money. A great birding location, African Finfoot female, White-browed Robin Chat, Scarlet-chested Sunbird, Thick-billed Weaver and African Green Pigeon photographed in the grounds on the riverside trail. I will be back.

Nice, large clean room. Huge fridge so great for coming through the border with cooler boxes! About 5 mins from the border so great for early morning crossings. Nice setting, safe parking. Will stay here again.

We stayed here on our way home from Tofo to Johannesburg. It was a lovely peaceful haven after dealing with a long drive and hectic border post! Our beds were comfortable and we had aircon and a small television. Plus everything you need to self cater for a night or two.

From the most incredible scenery, to the activities, the alone time and of course the amazing food and service. It turned into a wonderful holiday.

I stayed here for just under a week, to visit Kruger and also for trips into Swaziland and Mozambique. The owners are very hands on, accessible, and willing to help out with whatever you need. I had one of the smaller chalets, and had no complaints. The bed was comfortable and there's a kitchenette with a fridge. There are, crucially,...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Komati River Chalets is nestled on the confluence of the Komati and Crocodile Rivers in the Southern Kruger Park region of Mpumalanga’s wild frontier. Situated on 12 acres of Komati river front wilderness ensures that this is one of the regions premier country estates. The famous Kruger National Park, Crocodile bridge gate is a mere 12km from the lodge and the sweet veld grasses of the South Eastern Kruger National Park ensure that this is arguably the best game viewing area of the entire park as vast herds of plains game and predators alike are attracted to the spoils of this pristine area. Both Mozambique and Swaziland are but a stone throw from Komati River Chalets providing the perfect base from which to explore both exotic destinations. Set above the flood plain of the Komati River, the restaurant, bar and pool facilities, and the individual chalets are no more than fifty meters from the water’s edge where pods of hippos and an array of spectacular bird life will entertain for hours on end. The attention to detail and hands on management style of this family owned property ensure that Komati River Chalets is the ideal destination for the adventurous traveller. ... more   less

“We got a mountain and river view room. Absolutely breathtaking views. I believe this was their 'hotel' not the family chalets.”
