Great hotel at the gates to Kruger. Beds were comfortable and the food was good . They have some very cheeky monkeys so keep your eye on your things. They are next to the river where you can see hippos and elephants. I would recommend

I travel substantially and stay at hotels and resorts all around the world. Sad to say that the worst hotel I have ever stayed at is in my own country. The buffet was so bad that I left the restaurant and opted rather for room service (big mistake) the food was inedible not to mention I didn't get the food...

This is a hotel with an absolutely terrific location, close to the Kruger National Park and so convenient for early morning starts, as well as providing some great views into the park in the evening for hippo watchers. The food was excellent and the rooms were all comfortable and quiet. The only reservation I would have is that the staff...

The staff of this hotel are very friendly. The food quality is good. Rooms are spacious and well maintained. It is good for family outing. It's quite safe I spite of being situated in a wildlife reserve. We had a good experience.

The hotel was really nice and very close to the Kruger National Park so it was easy to get to the park early in the morning. The rooms were nice and clean and the aircondition worked well. We had the buffet dinner at the hotel. It was rich and ok, but I prefer anything but buffet. We left the hotel...
