I’ve stayed there on numerous occasions, and each time it gets a little bit more in need of a good cleaning. It needs a good coat of paint inside. The moldy bathroom ceiling is a turnoff. Still, though, it represents good value for money for being safe and overall reliable.

Daan & Zena's is simply lovely... quaint little place, kind people, quiet neighborhood. We loved it. Sadly we only stayed 1 night. We had reserved a room for 4 people, but much to our surprise we got a very comfortable little cottage with 2 separate, private bedrooms, each with its own bathroom; and a shared kitchen area in the middle....

Excellent value for the price. Room was clean and cozy, there is also a small swimming pool to relax. We had supper and breakfast there. Food was good and portions were generous since it's a kind of buffet. On the morning, Daan the owner came up to us and asked if everything was OK. I told him that our rental... More

After visiting Blyde River Canyon and driving the Panaroma route we wanted to stay somewhere near Kruger's Phalaborwa gate so we could drive into the park early in the morning. Daan en Zena's was very well signposted so we found it without any difficulties. We had a huge room, with a kitchen. Everything was clean, but even though the sign... More

We stayed at AtiFarti Backpackers, run by the same ownters as Daan & Zeena's. If we consider price and accommodation, it is by far the best backpackers we have found in South Africa. Very cheap, we had a huge room at our disposal, with shower and toilet and also kitchen and cooking facilities. The owners are very kind and eager... More
