Overall it was Great
Overall it was great. Only issue was at checkout the concierge booked our taxi earlier than we requested. Just a minor inconvenience in an otherwise wonderful hotel with good service.

Wonderful Guest House near Kruger Park
Dave, the owner was wonderful from the moment we arrived. He welcomed us warmly and was available to help us with any need. The entire property is beautiful with gardens, a pool and several seating areas. The bar is a self-service refrigerator that is on the honor system. The bar is another lovely seating area. Breakfast was included and included a continental breakfast as well as your choice of eggs and sides.We wished we were staying longer to enjoy the beautiful facilities and warm, friendly service.
