I walked across the border from mozambiqe and this was the first place I found. Well, I was surprised and impressed. The view, as the name suggests is of Kruger, which is incredible. As you sleep you can hear hyenas and hippos, and you can see Impala from the deck. The building is interesting and the owners are very helpful... More

Spent a night here on our way to Mozambique. The place is nice, rooms are clean, staff are kinda friendly and the view into the Kruger from the viewing deck is spectacular. Would definitely stay here again.

Martin, the manager, is the most charming and kindest person. The place is in a wonderful location, the building has got a charm out of common. Unluckily, the service and staff is very insufficient and not enough trained. The whole building: kitchen, rooms and living room needs a deep and detailed cleaning together with a better organisation of the space.... More

Despite the last awesome owner passed away, Martin and his sister have kept the spirit of friendly atmosphere and take care of their customers, do not miss the barbecue in the evening ! We will definitely come back to this place ;).

Clean basic accommodation and good communal facilities, with a very helpful and friendly reception. The only problem we experienced was the soft uneven mattress on the bed in the downstairs en suite bedroom. We will definitely stay here again.

As a backpacker owner myself, I popped in here just to meet the owner when passing through town, but ended up staying the night because I fell absolutely in love with the place. The owner has put so much effort into the place, and has set an example of what all backpackers should aspire to. The rooms? Beautiful and well... More

We stayed here overnight to break our journey from Mozambique and it was perfect as an overnight stay. The pool was a welcome sight and the rooms were clean and affordable. Dave was very friendly and helpful.

We stayed in Kruger View Lodge in the beginning of March 2013 for three days four nights. We had three people and had a two story room. Loved the decorations. The room opened up the balcony overlooking Kruger. The meals were so good! Dave made Braai one night and also made pasta. I went back for fifths. :) The safaris... More

I only stayed for 2 days, it should have been longer. I wanted to see Kruger whilst I was in South Africa and I couldn't really justify the cost of some of the safaris as i had planned to go on a trip through zambia anyway. My hostel in CT, capetown backpackers told me to go and stay here and... More
