Easy run to main southern Kruger gates and good for Deer and Giraffes, but not in luxury catergory.
Game runs in 3 abreast 4x4s (one of three covered). Just one pride of lions on reserve but many deer, zebras and giraffes and some elephant. Two runs should be suffiient and then move on to Kruger proper - they employ some good Kruger Guides for the runs there.
Rooms isollated and adequate. Outside shower, inside bath, double sinks, aircon which works. However it is showing its age. Furthest rooms a good hike up-hill to Reception/Bar/Restaurant..
Food solid and plentiful and just what you need after a chilly trip out but timed to co-incide with end of trips, so little choice in when to eat. Good cellar at reasonable prices.
All in all reasonable value, but do no expect too much.
