We had a great stay at Trees Too. Great location. Cool character. The owners and staff were lovely - they greeted us every day when we got home, just like we were houseguests. We spent nearly every evening relaxing at the outdoor restaurant by the pool enjoying a bottle of excellent red wine and their stories of giraffes or wildebeest invading their front porches or neighbors finding crocodiles in their swimming pools. They also organized some excellent day trips for us into Kruger Park and gave us tips on what to see on our trip to God's Window and Blyde River Canyon.
I feel I should say, though, that this was a very good 3 star hotel - great for young people and those willing to accept a little less luxury. Given the temperature, we were so happy to be there with (somewhat) functioning air conditioning and not in the camps in the park. The room and the bathroom were both a decent size. Our roof was the original thatched type, which smells a bit strange, but we got used to it after a day or two. The pool was also a bit green, but we still swam every day anyway. If you know you're the pickier type, I would probably choose a different place. We found it was all we needed and good value for money.
