What a gem of a resort. This peaceful resort is situated close to town if something was left at home, yet at the fringe of town and quiet. It is close to Phabeni and Kruger gates to visit the Kruger National Park. This resort is the place to visit if you want to recharge. The swimming pool is sparkling clean...

Just getting out of town, and entering the gate to this facility you are convinced; it is a great choice! The challets are spacious, kitchen well-equiped, the airconditioners per room, and just as a treat a braai in safety of sun and or rain!
