This place is superb. The accommodation was excellent (only 6 huts - 2 people per hut) and the outdoor showers were novel. It felt weird to start with but they are very secluded and the only thing possibly watching you may be a baboon. Air con in the rooms was also welcome as was the net which was put around...

The camp is constructed in the traditional style, the accommodations, while not overly luxurious were very comfortable, the food was very good and the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Excellent game viewing especially as there is a waterhole right at the camp. This is the best private...

What a great place in the wonderful bush of Kruger Park. Accomodation, staff, game drives and atmosphere all are Triple A. Drinking a lovely Sauvignon Blanc from South Africa after dinner on the terrace and witnessing a leopard approaching the water well in the dark. Just Unforgettable!!

A special visit with friendly and professional staff, luxurious rooms and delicious food. One night is not enough to really appreciate the bush, drives, meals and spa treatments. Saw good game despite the drought and enjoyed the Rangers knowledge.
