What a fabulous 6 nights! The hosts Pascal and Laura were very accommodating to our needs. The house itself was huge,and exceeded our needs. Impala, waterbuck and warthogs roam freely, and then there are also the elephants that came to say goodbye the night prior to us leaving! The cleaning staff were also amazing, and were always willing to go... More

Already before arrival we had a very pleasant email conversation which meant our safari was booked, breakfast was sorted, we had exact directions, etc before we got there. upon arrival on the estate we immediately saw impalas, which was...

Wonderful place in the middle of the bush: we stayed a couple of days in a very welcoming house for the 2 of us, with a nice view over a big pond where animals where coming to drink water. Thanks to Laura and Pascal, the managers of the estate, we spent a great time. Definitely recommended !

Dear Nico, thanks for your time to write a review. The pond which you saw is very full now. After the heavy rainfall of last weeks we are sure the pond doesn't dry out this winter. Great news for the animals here! Regards Pascal and Laura More

After the short flight from Joburb I was met by Laura the estate manager. This was the beginning of relaxing weekend. The estate borders Kruger with private houses built in Classic African thatched style. Animals roam the estate and elephant footprints were at my doorstep. I shared breakfast this morning with a family of warthogs. This is superb value and... More

Too bad we couldn't enjoy more because we had the days full @kruger park. But our house was amazing, very comfortable and big. It had a wonderful view. The satf is friendly and Laura and Pascal are very welcoming! We saw an elephant and some boars just nex to our house which made our stay even more special!
