We arrived late afternoon after an half day free tour at Kruger. upon arrival, we are notified that from 7 to 9 PM electrical power will be cut off. Time for a shower and then out for dinner, looking for a place with a power generator available. The day after we booked an early morning guided tour, so no time... More

We had a single night stay at Belvedere, before the Kruger Park guided tour. Nice room, great sightseeing on the river, perfect service. We left at 6.00 AM for the tour, too early to have breakfast at the guest house. So we received a bag to take away with sandwiches fruits and drinks. Important notice: In this period electrical power... More

Fantastic guest house boarding the Crocodile river. We had an executive room, beds, linen, and towels very nice. Breakfast was very good, on a beautiful patio overlooking the river. All rooms seem to have a river view. Honesty bar in the guest house and nothing too much trouble for the owner. 10 km from the Kruger Park gate, but late... More

A big thank you to Edmund for the kind and warm hospitality. A number of hotels in South Africa could use your willing approach to service. His general inclination to do more than the expected was a daily occurrence. A wonderful setting makes for a fantastic breakfast spot too. Thanks again to Edmund and team.

Had the most beautiful rooms and view of the river and Kruger National park. Elephants playing in the river less than 20 meters from the pool. The view is to die for. On the river bank there was Hihenas. Antilopes constantly grazing. Hippos basking in the african sun! Just an awesome experience! Friendly and great service and staff with one... More

Can't beat the setting and view over the Kruger Game Reserve, and we had a friendly welcome on arrival. Our room did not have a great view because we had requested a room with a bath tub- but it was comfortable and well appointed. I would have given 4* if it had not been for the breakfast - which we...

LOVED Belvedere-on-River! My friend and I stayed there for 3 nights (wish we could've stayed longer!), and enjoyed every minute of it. Edmund was SO helpful, hospitable, pleasant and professional. The house is a fairytale-dream-house, marvelously designed and decorated, with gorgeous garden, the pool I actually used once (were busy safariing otherwise), the room was AMAZING, breakfast was delicious, the...

Had a wonderful three night stay. So close to Malelane Gate, Kruger. Beautiful accommodation. Particularly superb air con. Family owned and huge attention paid to detail. Nothing a problem. Would definitely recommend. Thanks

So thrilled with our stay. Their attention to detail is ridiculous. The location is near the Kruger NP entrance and you can see elephants and other animals cruising around the river which is visible from their place. Awesome pool and fantastic breakfasts. Highly recommend and we will go back there for sure next time we go to KNP.

Had a four night stay end of November. Lovely place, super view over the Croc. River into Kruger Park. Each en-suite room is individually styled in traditional manner. Excellent service from Edmund and his staff. Well worth a visit.
