Our two night stay at Needles was great! The food is fabulous and it is a beautiful place that feels like you are really away from it all. Denis and Philomena made us feel really welcome and nothing was too much trouble for them. Our nine year old loved the interaction with the animals that just drop in, the warthogs Hop Along and Fatso, three zebra, baby kudo. Bush babies and fruit bats come to collect their nightly snack of bananas! We spent a day driving around the nearby Kruger Park and that is an amazing experience, but you don't even need to move out of Needles or Marloth Park to get a different but equally amazing experience. We will be coming back from Maputo soon for our next R and R weekend break!
