    Surprisingly spacious chalets

    Very spacious and nicely designed chalets wit appealing outside areas for each chalet. Had an issue with the bathtub path that was resolved immediately, and staff also provided help on a low pressure tyre within minutes! Cannot find better service! Highly recommended.

    It was a very nice place to stay.

    The owners were very friendly. They made us feel very welcome and we appreciated that. The house we stayed in was very nice. Over all, it was a wonderful experience.

    Our little house in the bush

    Had a wonderful time, with the privacy this accommodation provided, was an excellent getaway. The Phalaborwa gate of the Kruger Park was less than 10 minutes away. Take note that the last stretch of road is unpaved, and so essential to go at 60kmh or above to ride over the bumps. Was able to do this without a problem in my saloon car. Spotted Elephant, deer and hyena within the estate gates. And the pools were large and good for me an my toddler as well

    No Air Conditioning, Terrible Dirt Road

    They advertise on Expedia that they have air conditioning in their bedrooms. This is not true. It is unbelievably hot in this area and air conditioning is essential. They are also far out of town on a very bad dirt road. Driving out there is no fun. There are also no restaurants in the same hemisphere. They do not tell you that check in closes at 5 p.m. If you get there after 5 p.m., and need to try and call them, the chances are your cell phone will not work.

    Very friendly staff who went out of their way to help us. Excellent chef who asked what type of food we would like to eat - we asked for African as we wanted to taste authentic food from this area of the world and he came up trumps everyday. Wildlife on your doorstep and the lodge arranged reasonable priced safaris and trips for us

    Dépaysant

    Très dépaysant dans une réserve. Mieux vaut avoir un bon 4x4 car il y a pas mal de piste pour y accéder. Sinon accueil très chaleureux. Très bonne literie.
