Always a pleasure to stay here. Some small hurdles but nothing would change me not to stay here again and again! Beatiful surroundings and easy access to Kruger park. Weather this time of year is Awesome

The wifi was a total letdown, I had to request for a username and password maybe 2 or 3 times a day after the wifi would stop connecting.The breakfast and dinner buffet could use a bit more of a variety of dishes.
