Wonderful hosts, good food. We had two of the three rooms for our party. The hosts arranged and led our excursion to Kruger, which was wonderful. It's a small place, and you feel like guests of the inn keepers, so if you want to be anonymous, this is not for you, but we loved it. Very clean, nicely decorated. We... More

We had a great break with Tony & Danielle, who are terrific hosts. They are very well connected and arranged a number of safaris into the Kruger and along the Crocodile River. The rooms are really well appointed, comfortable and spotlessly clean, with good aircon. The setting and air of the place is totally relaxing, with a lovely cooling pool... More
