Darling river chalet and very good service. Scenic views and hippo sightings. This was a good choice to spend the night before starting our safari of Kruger. Breakfast was included in our package and the buffet was very good

We were there the end of July. There were no nets and we didn’t need any anti- malaria meds. However it was winter. So I’m not 100% sure about the summer months.
