Great place to overnight on route to the Kruger Park from the Highveld area. Or to stay a few days to do daytrips to surrounding tourist sights. Good three star quality and friendly owners. Nice 5km trail run route to follow on surrounding farms, either running or hiking.. watch out for the hippos!

The staff at breakfast were extremely friendly and were also ready with recommendations of what to do in the area and the best ways to get to the airport in a rush. I stayed in a honeymoon twin rondawel and my only regret is that I didn't have more...

Christie and Darryl could not have made us feel more welcome. The accommodation is superb, the grounds are beautiful and we had a...

Me and my girlfriend stayed at this place for one night before we went to the Kruger National Park. The bungalows are awesome and you can relax in the beautiful garden, or just hang around at the pool. Also the staff were very nice and helpful! So if you are planning to do some safari trips into the Kruger, I...
