Once we found the B&B, our stay was memorable - elephants walking past between hotel and the Crocodile river, crocs sunbathing, elephants and rhinos wading in the river and Leopards Creek golf club nearby!! Edmund, the owner, was sooooooooooo attentive and extremely helpful - for someone so young!! With the Kruger nearby ( we spent a total of 3 days... More

This little hotel is a great place to base yourself for a short stay in the Kruger Park area. The rooms are affordable, well equipped and neat. The view from the balcony and deck across its the crocodile river is magnificent, particularly if you get to see some wildlife. The breakfast is included and is rather good too. The gentleman...

The only negative aspect is room no 2.It is very small and I struggled to do work on my laptop.The price is also very reasonable for... More

Amazing location overlooking Kruger. Warm welcome from male host and his on-going attentive nature was nice. He seems to be running the place single handed. Service too laid back, strange room with glass doors straight off reception area. Slightly offhand attitude of female host, particularly a personal question about our daughter that we found offensive/strange, although no doubt it was... More

Magic place, wonderful people, relaxed atmosphere, great service, nice breakfast and a good restaurant "the deck" close by. We saw more animals from our balcony than in the Krueger NP. Amazing! We will come back!

The perfect destination if you want to couple a wildlife experience with luxury accommodation at an affordable price. The service is excellent without being intrusive. Our rooms were large and very comfortable with enough work space if we needed to do some work whilst on holiday.

The perfect location at the border of the Crocodile river, looking at the Krugerpark. Just sit at the terrace and let the elephants and water boks come by if you are lucky. Fantastic Victorian ambiance and great hospitality. Only minor point is the access road to the hotel across a new-built residential area, not in line with the overall atmosphere... More

The Belvedere on River B&B is situated on the Riverbank of the Crocodile River on the southern edge of the Kruger Park. The three-story house has been designed to make the most of the amazing view. There are viewing decks all around and from the open plan breakfast room you can see the animals lingering around the waters edge. We... More

A 4* guesthouse with 5* service, this place has an outstanding position on Fish Eagle bend on the Crocodile River. On arrival, after a whole day looking for wild animals in Kruger, we were privileged to see a family of Elephants only yards away from our sundowner terrace where we ate dinner & breakfast. Crocodile, Hippo and Buffalo all spotted... More

We booked through booking.com and when we arrived the owners had no records of our reservation...they had no idea we were coming. It's not their fault, but that didn't set us off to a nice mood. They had a free room for us, but not the specific one we asked for in our booking, it was occupied already. The room... More
