"Amazing, Comfortable, Cozy and freshly renovated!"
The owner Mildred was an absolute gem! She was helpful from the moment we got there and was so easy to get in touch with! The location is perfect if you are planning a visit to Kruger park. The rooms are bed and breakfast style (however the owner stays at another location onsite) with a breakfast-kitchen open area. Everything is brand new and renovated. Really cozy beds. Would definitely go back, amazing value for price!
