Already whilst writing emails backwards and forwards to Kim & Sander whilst booking the accommodation beforehand, Sander wrote back "welcome to our little paradise". Kurhula really lived up to every word we were promised...and even more. From the moment we set foot on the Parsons Reserve, we were magically transformed into what I call "real" and "authentic" nature in South Africa ....every wish being catered to on a very personal level, without the marketing frills of the luxury lodges on the Kruger. Just by being there, one is right in the middle and on the pulse of the Kruger. It´s the whole experience which makes up the Kruger and that is exactly what Kim and Sander offered. The hearty & warm hospitality, the flexibility, the friendship and genuine interest in our time there and all we experienced both on the Kruger alone as well as on our drive out with Sander in the Parsons Reserve - on the greater Kruger. Amazing! Kim and Sander made us feel part of "their paradise and their home" which they shared so generously with us. Kim´s cooking is second to none and the fact that they both spent time with us, ate meals with us and shared all their experiences and stories with us made us feel so welcomed and part of their personal lifestyle there. Simple, stylistic with incredible luxury touches, friendly, hospitable, this littlle paradise is more than excellent value for money. I shed a tear when we had to leave but we will definately be back!!!
