“Class Accommodations Outside Kruger”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2012

Our bungalow at the Thokozani Lodge reminded us a little of the thatched-roof places we stayed at in Kruger Park but just in the external roof appearance.  Inside, the Thokozani bungalow was larger, better appointed, more amenities, and had a much more comfortable bed.  It lacked a heating system but the bungalow held the heat in well and the heavy comforters made sleeping pleasant during our mid-June visit of 2012. Alex and Holger are fantastic hosts!  Holger makes the grounds a wonderful place to stroll while Alex's cooking was some of the best we experienced during our 3 weeks in Africa.  What really set them apart were the efforts they made to accommodate our sight-seeing desires. And don’t let Holger fool you; his knowledge of the history and geology of the area was excellent (even though he tried to deny it). They really did well only recommending and taking us to places of quality and substance (such as he Hoedspruit Endangered Species Center) and skipping some of the “tourist traps”.  Alex had been plagued with some problems with their Internet connection, so Holger took us to a local shopping mall (which was fun to visit since we hadn’t had time to do that) so we could use an Internet cafe to update our travel blogs and email.  So they really do try to accommodate whatever needs you have!
