Stayed here last weekend. The hotel is within a few yards of the Kruger Gate entrance to the Park. Clean, modern and very 'African'. Very open plan, wooden floor boards, close to undergrowth, Vervet Monkeys climbing around. London, this is not. It's a comfortable hotel in the bush. Loved it.

Great location right on the border of the park. Evening game viewing overlooking the river from the hotel while having some adult beverages. Great evening buffet dinner. Right next to park entrance to beat the morning rush from Hazyview.

We stayed here as part of an organised tour. It was well organised in terms of our safari day and was a very relaxing place to be when we were at leisure. The staff (with the exception of one barman) were friendly and helpful and we could not fault then. The rooms were comfortable with everything you might need including...

Exceptionally well located right next to the main entrance to the Kruger Game Park. The main reason for staying here will be to visit the the Game Reserve and you couldn't get closer.

Stayed here 3 nights on a Titan Tour. Included evening meal was poor and there was limited choice. Breakfast was very good. Room was accessed via wooden walkways with entertaining monkeys! Interesting room, with patio doors giving access to outside.
