Hi, we had booked Rio Vista because it has a great view friom the restaurant into Krugerpark. It has a beautiful hotellike setting. Arriving there they told us about Linos Lodge, next door, same owner, same restaurant and view, but set in even more beautiful round rondavel-houses. Same price about, and on our request they even moved us over to Linos. So we could watch elephants and hippos also from outside our teras and hear the lions roar there at night.
One thing: if you want to book a guided tour through Kruger, dont book through them. That was very overpriced, so we very much enjoyed it.
