Felicity, the manager, was extremely attentive, even before we arrived.

Stayed here for two days and had a fantastic time. From start to finish we were totally looked after & the staff here are amazing. Outdoor shower was brilliant. Food consistently was great throughout - particularly the steak cooked in front of us on an open fire. If you're in the South of Kruger then definitely stay here.
