Everything was as described. The host and the staff were wonderful and kind. Room were excellent and the facilities were top class. The food was great. Check with Tom before selecting Safari guides as ours was a bit poor on value for money.

It was like heaven arriving after the long drive north from Joburg. The place was beautiful, very peaceful and our hosts especially helpful. Any return trip to Kruger we would arrange to stay there again.

Our stay basically what we were looking for in the bush, tranquility and peace of mind. The service mans in the place really know what to do and will be returning soon. Fresh food and small number of guest in the lodge make it an ideal place. Easy access to Kruger and surrounding areas.

Perfect place for some quality time, whether as a couple or a family. It was very hot, 41 degrees, so we spend afternoons at the lodge where the pool is at. We loved swimming and lying on the sun beds as the animals and birds came to drink.
