This is a perfect stop just before entering Kruger National Park. We arrived after a long drive from Johannesburg and really enjoyed the facilities: relax at the pool, enjoying the sunset on the big terrace and finally going to bed in very comfortable and spacious chalet. The breakfast was absolutely delicious, made and served with love :) Overall the stuff... More

The kids could use a torch to watch animals. Firewood was given to us so we could make a fire. Breakfast was very nice, made with care. Good beds. Also they... More

We had the most amazing stay in a stunning house set right in the bush, we were pleasantly surprised that we also had our own private hot tub which ourselves and the kids absolutely loved! Nothing was to much trouble for the hosts who were helpful, friendly and always there if you needed anything. Breakfast was wonderful and the staff... More

I stayed one night on my way to another place, and so didn't hire a car, but the staff collected me from the airport and then gave me a cold bottle of water. A welcome drink at reception was lovely, and then I was driven to my chalet/villa. It was not safe to walk out at night (in case of... More

The location is perfect for a visit to Kruger Park. The road up to the estate is somewhat bumpy but well worth it. The villas are very well equipped and spacious. The young dutch couple running it are lovely and very very helpful and they work together with a guide whi os very knowledgable

It is the first time we tried self catering in South Africa. In this case it means that breakfast is included. It worked out fine. It is conveniently located some 20 minutes from the entrance to the Kruger Park and the Hans Merensky golf course. The estate itself is indeed a bush environment which in itself is not very attractive... More

Excellent accommodation this is! The whole family truly enjoyed our stay here. Wished we could stay for longer than the 4 days. Aside from the rough access road, this is a dream get-away where you get to enjoy the tranquil with nature in the bush.
