    Nothing beats unit no. 13 for the BEST views in the world! The units are very tired and in serious need of refurbishment. The outside of the unit was unkempt, generally very little attention to detail. We found broken glass in the walkways even below...More

    Very simple rooms but as a base for exploring the national park, it couldn't be better. Amazing views of Olifants river from our room terrace and the restaurant. Quality of food and service in the restaurant is also excellent.

    wanttotravel_9
    hi I have been trying to make a reservation for one of the guest houses for August next year. I phoned central reservations as they opened at 7.30 on the day accommodation becomes available however these units were already reserved. Do these units get reserved by travel agents? If so does anyone know the name of agents that I could contact to make a reservation with them? many thanks
