“Location is the big plus”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2012

After visiting Blyde River Canyon and driving the Panaroma route we wanted to stay somewhere near Kruger's Phalaborwa gate so we could drive into the park early in the morning. Daan en Zena's was very well signposted so we found it without any difficulties. We had a huge room, with a kitchen. Everything was clean, but even though the sign said "there is hot water, please let the water run a little longer", I had no hot water in the morning. Maybe I should have let it run longer than 5 minutes, but that seems a waste of water? There is little information on Kruger in the room, like how to get there, which we expected because why else would you stay there? What was in the room were many warning like "do not do this, do not do that, please do not remove etc". Maybe it is necessary, but not very welcoming. As we seemed to be the only guests, it felt like a ghost B&B anyway. All in all it was OK, but it was good to be able to leave again in the morning.

We stayed at AtiFarti Backpackers, run by the same ownters as Daan & Zeena's. If we consider price and accommodation, it is by far the best backpackers we have found in South Africa. Very cheap, we had a huge room at our disposal, with shower and toilet and also kitchen and cooking facilities. The owners are very kind and eager to help you with informations. Kruger Park is just 2 km from the backpackers.

Dear Daan & Zena's (Safarinow)

Thank you for the hospitality that we received during our stay at your place. We arrived late the Friday evening but the guy that gave us our key was so helpfull even at that time of the night.

We were very impressed with the beautiful selfcatering room and will definitely recommend your bed and breakfast to our friends and family.

Your place is so colourfull and I love it! I am just sorry we could not meet you guys but I understood you went to the coast.

Colourfull Greetings

Christo and Carin
