    Beautiful place with a breath-taking veranda view and food execellent.The room n.2 is too close to the reception and so is quite noisy in the morning and the bathroom needs some impruvements.The Elephant suite,where we stayed one night,was verry nice.

    Lodge fro the begining of the 80-eiths, never restored after that. Dirty pool. Rude manager. Medioker food. Only four sunbeds to 34 guests? Bathrooms in very bad shape. When you think about the price for the rooms per night it auth to be much better.

    Perfect Service!! Friendly and helpful staff!! Breakfast perfect (Fruit salad mmmhh)! Optimal Situation to the Golf Course and the Kruger Nationalpark. For the pool accomodations I would like to have more sunbeds.
