We stayed just for 1 night before taking a flight and after ten days in kruger. We were a couple and 2 friends. It is a very comfortable place with very nice rooms. Very good value for money. Situated in a condo-style area (there is no downtown in this city) around 5 min by car to restaurants... Recomended

Stayed there for one night one the way back from Kruger Park. We were unsure about the location because there are no signs of the guest house, but the GPS was spot on and the owners opened for us when they noticed we were hesitating. We were told the lack of sign is for safety. As in many places in...

We booked a room for two nights, but left after one night without refund. We did not feel pampered. Our room was on the ground floor, looking straight onto a concrete wall. The room was clean but equipped with only the bare necessities: tiny room, minimal furniture, tiny wash hand basin, tiny towel, etc. The air smelled unpleasant of chemical...

The place is nice and clean. Rooms are beautiful and well furnished. The breakfast box is very handy on the way to Kruger Park. Hosts are helpful and give all necessary tips either for dinner downtown or the best way to enter the Kruger Park.
