As far as accokodation goes,this was very nice. Would go back. The good: Accomodation: There are a number of "tented rooms" available. It is not your average tent and consists of very comfortable beds,airconditioning and eveything you need. Much nicer than the idea that you get when you see the word tent on the website. The showers are awesome. Food:...

Nice camp just outside one if the southern gates in Kruger. Nice bar and restaurant, rather old pool area. Accommodation of tents and cabins, but the place misses a bit of charm. Friendly staff. Free 20 minuts internet daily (slow connection)

Tents are spread out over a considerable area and it is a long walk to the Reception building where meals are served, game drives start, etc. Tents are fitted with aircon units but this was unable to cope with the heat during the day and I found the tent uncomfortable to be in during the day. At night the room...

Gone are the days of tired run down tents and camp, it has been totally revitalised new beds, linen and great pillows, better lighting and great paths to the tents. The service standards, friendliness, helpfulness...

The little huts - half canvas and half wood had indoor toilets and both an indoor and outdoor shower. We used only the outdoor shower as the light was so dim in the indoor one that you couldn't see what you were doing. The room was fine, reminded me of going to camp as a kid - only issue was...

I booked 1 night through South African Tourism Company. Nkambeni was shocking. The reason for booking was also for 3 meals on offer – when we arrived at 13.50 pm we were told by the reception staff that lunch was over. Once in our room, we checked guest information. It specifically states that lunch is until 14.30 pm.We tried to...
