When checking in, we had a bit of a bad start. At first we didn't get the accommodation we had reserved but later we were moved to the right place. Also, the site manager had not responded to our safari reservations made in advance and for a while I looked like we were going to miss out on the activities we had planned.
However, the staff on site listened to us and really made an effort to turn things around. They made sure we could carry out the things we had planned and the head ranger took us out on a really amazing Kruger safari himself. The accommodation is not luxurious but has a exiting atmosphere with an amazing view an is well kept. The bungalows are each separate with a large terrace and the fantastic view of the nature as your only visible neighbor. Also, the private outdoor shower is really nice.
Along Kruger we also did a bush walk safari, evening drive, horse back safari and elephant interaction at the private game reserve, all great.
Our opinion is that the general manager is not very service minded and really does not make much of an effort but on the other hand the staff on site really do their best to ensure their guests a pleasant stay. We wouldn't hesitate to return!
