Timeshare cottages are wonderful. We stayed in a 3 bedroom cottage which was furnished beautifully. Rooms were comfortable, kitchen was well equipped and everything was clean. The resort is lovely. Great swimming pool area and restaurant. The resort even has Hippo's entering the grounds from the river at night, which is great to see.

Spent 1 night at the hotel. Was told the wifi in the rooms was broken and had been for a while. Went for a R175 buffet and they only had roast pork - not what you expect for that price. Some of our party do not eat pork and therefore after a long day driving we had to get back... More

We stayed in the timeshare chalets on the Sabie River which were vey well appointed with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The resort is 10 minutes from the Phabeni gate into the Kruger Park which made daily visits easy.
