I found the Baobab to be exactly what I needed for my short trip to Johannesburg. It is excellent value, exceptionally clean and with friendly service. It feels like staying in someone's home but there is plenty of privacy and the rooms I stayed in were large, sunny and expansive.

Stayed here for 4 absolutely blissful nights. Luca and Valeria are the best hosts you could possibly think of. They have daily visits from all sorts of wild animals that live within the estate so you’ll never have a day with no wildlife sightings. The rooms were clean and comfortable with all the necessary amenities. The highlight of this trip was the pool that’s just perfect after a hot days drive and the absolutely cracking 4 course Italian meal hand prepared by Luca and Valeria. I highly recommend this place if you want the best and affordable wildlife experience close to Kruger.

The universe works in mysterious ways. Just got back from Italy/Rome very hot vacation last week and decided to take a trip to the Kruger Park but could not get accommodation in the park for Thursday night and decided to stay in Hoedspruit. We found this little gem on the internet. Big was our surprise to upon arrival meet our hosts Luca and Valeria from Italy/Rome. What a welcome back! They were very friendly and we had a wonderful stay. Lovely room with beautiful view. I can highly recommend this place.

We stayed here for a few days before heading on to Kruger NP, and we loved every minute of it! The location is great - close to restaurants and shops, but within a wildlife reserve where we saw warthogs, zebra, and various bovids, right next to our room. The rooms are perfect and decorated in a modern style. Luca is an excellent host - very friendly and wonderful to talk with. The included breakfast is large and filling, and the optional Italian dinners were lovely! Can't wait to return!

Neat, great breakfast, tea and coffee in room and friendly service. When myself and my husband have to visit the kyalami area again will definitely stay there. It was close to the hospital where my husband had his appointments. And the fridge and microwave in the room made it easy to heat up something to eat in the evening :-)
