We prefer to get into Kruger early as we camp and so try to set up before it gets too hot. Masorini is close enough to get into Phalaborwa for supper if you are not self catering, but far enough from town to be in the bush. If you are self catering there are braai facilities. The cottages are welcoming... More

Quite often in the the area , had to try something different and to my surprise Masorini offers a peaceful overnight stay. Booking was quick and simple, rooms were clean and comfortable, bathroom neat and tidy , best of all no TV , nature at its best . Affordable accommodation including breakfast, what a pleasure will be back soon

This place is absolutely wonderful. It's far enough out of town that you feel you are really in the bush. The accommodations are quite comfortable. (I was not expecting such a nice place for the little that it cost...) If you want to cook, there's enough kitchen stuff to make that easy. If not, the restaurants in town are really... More

Very hospitable family really made our (too short) stay terrific. The rooms were charming---we had beds for our family of 4, plus a bathroom. Kitchen was outside on covered patio, which included small fridge, microwave, sink, bar-height table, and larger eating table. Very cool set-up. Kids and adults were enamored with this place. From our group of 16 family members,... More

After reading all the reviews I was completely convinced that this is the place to overnight on our trip to the Kruger - The "friendly" Margaret left us standing with a "fill in the book - I'll be back." On her return she scrutinised the guest registration book to see if all were filled in correctly without saying a word... More

Dear Mr & Mrs Louw, I want to offer my sincere apologies if you found me to be unwelcoming on arrival. While it's no excuse and should have been explained, some new guests had arrived moments before you, so I was in the process of showing them to their chalets, and this is why I asked you to fill in...

If you want that 'Kruger' feel then this is the place with a personal touch. Sean & Margaret are fabulous hosts. The best of all is that it's so reasonably priced. This little lodge has so much to offer we just loved the wild life right on our doorstep.

Margaret and her husband are very nice hosts, our chalet was nicely equipped with all the kitchen appliances one needs to self cater - but a meal provided by Margaret is well worth it! Their property is perfect for a leisurely stroll to enjoy the bush, and their dogs make for friendly companions. Margaret feed and watered the local animals... More

Stayed over on 25 and 26 April 2015. Margaret was a charming and attentive host, we enjoyed her conversation and advice on where to go in the Kruger Nat Park. The A frame room was clean, spacious and ideally located in the bush, and being able to braai on both nights was a plus. Enjoyed meeting the animals (nightape, duiker,... More
