River view with elephants, hippo, crocs, water buck, various deer and looking across the riverbank rhino , giraffe and more elephants. Birds galore and even a bat. Stunning place. Very comfortable rooms, very...

From the first moment we arrived and were greeted by Edmund we were made to feel really welcome. Edmund arranged a safari around Kruger which is literally the authorised of the river and also arranged a day trip to Swaziland....he could not do enough to make our stay enjoyable. The views from the balcony and whilst having breakfast were out...

I had booked and was planning to go to Belvedere-on-River but due to circumstances beyond my control I could not make it. Because I was late and did not cancel I was expecting to pay full price for my booking in accordance with the set agreement, but Edmund was so very kind and told me I would only have to...

Picture doesn't do it justice :). Truly a cozy hidden jewel. Private, relaxing and clean. Staff is friendly and extremely helpful with games/tours and restaurants suggestions. Breakfast was prepared for us and kept in the fridge for an early morning game. Had a wonderful breakfast the next morning on the balcony. Perfect spot for the Kruger. Elephants and Rhinos right...

Our vist to them was one of the best in a long time. Friendly, helpful staff. The breakfast was great. The room was spotless. The view on the Crocodile River was beautiful, even with the river so empty. Can commend this to all travelers, it was such a peaceful experience.....Well done

We stayed in 2 single rooms on a business trip. Rooms 1 and 2. There are many stairs to go down to get to the rooms around the pool. We prefered to leave our suitcases in the car (parked on the gated grounds). Being first line to the crocodile river and the south rim of Kruger park, you feel in...
