My family and I stayed here for a week-long holiday and we are so glad we did. Ample accommodation with everything you need for a comfortable stay, fresh clean house, like a well loved home. Daily cleaning service included in the accommodation price! Small mod cons make for a very comfortable stay in the bush, including all bedrooms being ensuite,... More

Visited the beautiful lodge after I finished my volunteer project. The place next to Kruger Park is so so lovely, clean and affordable! Amazing Wildlife viewing, lots of outdoor activities and it's also close to visit Mocambique and the Indian ocean.... My best South African experience!!!

A dream of Lilian which has made her committed to this place and area !

Call of Africa is perfect for a small group as it's four rooms are spaced out in a lovely large house with an uncredible balcony. From the balcony extends a walkway that leads to an incredible look out from where you can clearly see Kruger Park. Lovely place with lovely people!

The kettle was full of descaler, which both my elderly parents had a mouth full of , as they went straight for the kettle after out 5 hour drive from Tambo... More

It already started in the early morning when we woke up with zebras, pumbas and monkeys outside the window.
