Beautiful camp just outside the Numbi gate of the Kruger Park. Highly recommend!! The staff were very friendly and attentive. The accommodation was great with aircon, mosquito nests and an inside & outside shower. The beds are very comfortable, but we were forced up quite early by all the tourists off on the bush walk.The breakfast and dinner buffet provided...

The tents are very nice with AC and very well furnished. They have an indoor and outdoor shower in each room; very different experience. Breakfast and dinner buffets were excellent with lots of choice for vegetarians as well. There is free coffee/tea all through the day. The camp is right outside Numbi gate of Kruger national park and we were...

A very comfortable lodge with luxurious tentes and a bonus - open air showers. The pool and reception areas are very nice and welcoming. Aircon in all tents is hugely appreciated. Hippos and rhinos can be observed just from the pool area.

So I'll start by saying that the rooms were nice, the A/C was excellent, and the pool looked great. However the food was not great and I wouldn't recommend dinner. But, our tour guide was beyond amazing. I'm trying to find out what company it was because the note I made was accidentally deleted. Alnero (Quagga) agreed to take us...

There are pros and cons to this place. The actual lodge is fantastic, people are friendly, the rooms are great, clean with aircon. There is a pool that over looks a little dam where you can see hippos. Elephants came right to the fence one night and we could see and hear them trumpeting, it was fantastic. The negative side...

This truly is the ideal place for the Safari holiday. Just at the numbi gates not far to travel to get into the park. It's quiet setting only adds to its charm. The regular hippos in the river behind the camp is a welcome attraction. All members of the staff here are absolutely wonderful!

As far as accokodation goes,this was very nice. Would go back. The good: Accomodation: There are a number of "tented rooms" available. It is not your average tent and consists of very comfortable beds,airconditioning and eveything you need. Much nicer than the idea that you get when you see the word tent on the website. The showers are awesome. Food:...

Nice camp just outside one if the southern gates in Kruger. Nice bar and restaurant, rather old pool area. Accommodation of tents and cabins, but the place misses a bit of charm. Friendly staff. Free 20 minuts internet daily (slow connection)
