Perfect place to relax after beeing out on the road for exploring. A nice swimmingpool to relax. A shopping mall nearby there you can eat and shop before you enter Kruger Park. Safe parking area just outside your bungalow.

Friendly welcome ! Nice and clean room - a bit strange to have the bath in the bedroom ! Breakfast is served on the terrace and the table is dressed the way to be able to talk to the other guests of the lodge.

We have taken to stopping at Idle and Wild for our first and last nights in South Africa every time we come.on our annual holiday. With no pressure,and just helpful attention from Christie and Darryl, we know that we will leave them the next day fully refreshed by a relaxed night's sleep. We will be back soon

Because our flight to Brussels was canceled (heavy snow in Istanbul) we got 4 unexpected days holiday. We decided to back to the Krugerpark and booked 4 nights in Idle & wild. This hotel is situated at 15km from the Phabeni gate! We could not have made a better decision!! From the moment we arrived we could feel the calmness...
