Great hotel to start Panorama Route or Kruger Park
Wonderful hotel to stay at as launching point for Panorama Route or to get into Kruger National Park. Great rate, rooms were clean, and staff was very friendly and helpful. Restaurant had decent food, and they packed our breakfast for us the next morning so we could leave on our adventure early. It was far better than the rest camp we stayed inside Kruger.

A fair stay
The bed was too hard. Didn’t appreciate the 2nd hand used face cloths (not professional at all). The WiFi was awesome & fast. The pool was not as it was in the pics (dream sold). They should sell more variety at the bar in terms of drinks
