This could be superb accommodation given the location, the viewing balcony with amazing views over the river and the wildlife in the evenings. The grounds and the pools were also very good. The check-in late in the evening could only be described as a shambles....More

A nice place to stay when visiting Kruger National Park and you want a bit of comfort. The staff are all friendly, nice rooms and well cooked food. The deck overlooks the river and the sound of hippos in the river drifts up to you.

Facility maintenance gone backwards since my previous stays, buffet food cold with limited options. Water is visibly brown coming from taps, drinking water not replaced during stay. Staff very friendly and doing their best.

We found the food actually quite good and tasty, with a good variety of different dishes appealing to different tastes, freshly prepared. Breakfast was also good, with a live station for omelettes.
