Warm welcome, entire staff extremely helpful and friendly, interesting drives with a knowledgable guide; they really go the extra mile for you. Comfortable luxury tent with a splendid view on the river. Food was delicious and rich in variety, great salads and cakes for tea time. We enjoyed our birding stay a lot! Thanks again.

Return Africa is a very beautiful, quiet and peaceful camp. The tents are amazing and from the whole camp you have an awesome view to the river. Always you see some animals directly in front of your tent, pool or restaurant. The food is so delicious and the stuff is so kind and help you when ever you want and... More

Game viewing somewhat sparse. Probably hasn't completely recovered from flooding & recent drought however overall excellent facility, location & most scenic areas we have seen in Kruger. Would recommend.

A very good choise for a stay in the Northern part of Kruger. Good service and food. Many birds and we saw elefants, zebras, kudus, nyalas. Nature is some of the best in Kruger, Bao Bab trees up here are so fantastic. Will like to come again.

The location on the side of a river is magnificent. The whole camp including all rooms are on the side of the river and I estimate every room is at least 50m from the next. This means you have a sense of privacy. Some rooms are at the same level as the river while ours (room 15) was at a... More

Good day, thank you for your valued feedback. As we are an eco-lodge we try very hard to reduce our carbon footprint and unfortunately this means we do not have fridges in our tents.
