Stayed here for 5 days in a 3-bed, 3-bath timeshare with daily maid service. The location, just outside Hazyview and 10 minutes from the new gate into Kruger Park, was very convenient and the house was very comfortable. We cooked most of our own meals, either in the kitchen or on the grill (bring your own charcoal), but there is a restaurant and bar on site and plenty of restaurants/bars in the town. Try The Brewery at Perry's Bridge: good beer and excellent food. There are two supermarkets in the shopping center in Hazyview, just 5 minutes away. On Tuesday night, the Lodge offered a bring-your-own BBQ for an amazing $8 US per person: we brought our own meat and wine, and they provided soup, salad, veggies, bread, dessert , entertainment and a roaring open fire. Yes, they do have guard dogs on patrol at night but this was for our protection and did not worry us; we felt very safe there. However, be sure to lock the doors when you leave, and lock your valuables in the safe provided in the house. Impalas roam the beautiful grounds and there are hippos in the lake. Several hiking trails along the river and around the golf course offer stimulating exercise, and there's a swimming pool next to the clubhouse. The only disappointment of our stay was the driver/guide to Kruger Park whom we booked through the Lodge for a morning drive; he was disinterested and did a poor job of spotting wildlife. It's better to book one of the guided tours at Kruger Park itself; we pre-booked one of the night tours there with a park ranger and it was superb -- we saw 4 of the Big 5 in 3 hours, including a pride of lions. If you have the time, take a drive to God's Window and the Blyde River Canyon: wonderful sights. Overall, we were very satisfied with our stay at Kruger Park Lodge.
