My family and I stayed here for a week-long holiday and we are so glad we did. Ample accommodation with everything you need for a comfortable stay, fresh clean house, like a well loved home. Daily cleaning service included in the accommodation price! Small mod cons make for a very comfortable stay in the bush, including all bedrooms being ensuite,...

Visited the beautiful lodge after I finished my volunteer project. The place next to Kruger Park is so so lovely, clean and affordable! Amazing Wildlife viewing, lots of outdoor activities and it's also close to visit Mocambique and the Indian ocean.... My best South African experience!!!

A dream of Lilian which has made her committed to this place and area !

Call of Africa is perfect for a small group as it's four rooms are spaced out in a lovely large house with an uncredible balcony. From the balcony extends a walkway that leads to an incredible look out from where you can clearly see Kruger Park. Lovely place with lovely people!

WOW, what a place. However, when we arrived, there was no greeting, no lights on, no air conditioning. In fact it was very very dark and very very hot. The kettle was full of descaler, which both my elderly parents had a mouth full of , as they went straight for the kettle after out 5 hour drive from Tambo...

I spent there almost 3 wonderful weeks with my mom. The time at "Call of Africa" was just amazing. It already started in the early morning when we woke up with zebras, pumbas and monkeys outside the window.

“The top one with the huge balcony.”

“Well, this is an outstanding place to be, the house, in a total nature area on the border of the Krüger Park with the crocodile-river in a few minutes walking distance. We did visit and occupied Lilians house together with our friends and that is just fine because the house is very privat, modern and cosy, sharing the privacy of the facility with Lillian and friends. In case one would have to share this privacy with other people (strangers), i am not sure if this would have the same or similar enjoyment factor. So our recommendation is, to be there with friends if possible, that is just perfect. To be there for a few days with stangers would or could be a kind of risk.”
