The title says it all - we felt that driving around the whole day searching for animals either in your own car or while being on a guided tour makes you really tired, so we were looking for a place where to find comfort during the rest of the time. We found it in Hamiltons. The staff is very helpful, the rangers are nice and know just where to drive to get the best game views (we saw lions hunting and the other day lions mating while being on tour with their ranger), the food is delicious and the beds are nice and comfortable. We stayed in room 1 which is closest to the dam , where we could see a Hippo, a crocodile, elephants and giraffes right in front of our balcony. Of course this accommodation has its price, but we would be willing to pay it again when coming back to Krueger (esp. since we have also been to government owned rest camps which we cannot recommend at all).
