The couple that runs this B&B are truly a joy to visit with. The accommodations have an amazing view of KNP across the river and the breakfast is completely excellent. Could not suggest a better place to stay.

Excellent high-class accommodation - we had a self-catering thatched lodge for four - with a pool from which we watched hippos, crocs, buffalo, giraffe, warthogs and elephants across the Crocodile River. The Kruger park gate is a five minute drive away and we were in the park...
