Our family stayed at Meerkat Manor in Komatipoort for one night before going to the Kruger National Park.
We stayed in the family unit and were pleasantly surprised at how neat and clean everything was. Not to mention the lovely décor.

Beds and pillows were comfortable, air-conditioner worked well and we had our own BBQ area.
We did not expect all of this, as the pricing was quite reasonable (even cheap) compared to other places in the area
Meerkat Manor was a treat to stay at and definitely value for money.

The hosts were very friendly and helpful.
Perfect stay-over for one or two nights.

My brother and I recently visited the Kruger National Park and stayed at Meerkat Manor in Komatipoort on our way to the Park. The price for a twin room was quite cheap compared to other places in the area, but upon arrival we quickly discovered although the pricing is for budget accommodation, Meerkat Manor was way better than what the price suggested. Comfy beds, air-conditioner in tip-top condition and a very friendly and helpful owner. Would recommend Meerkat Manor anytime.

Hi Janet. Sorry to hear you are not happy. You did check in 2 hours early and we did not have time to check the room hence the one towel (which we fixed the following day). There was liquid soap and shampoo in the shower. When you made the booking, we did offer you a slightly more expensive room which would have catered for all your needs, but you declined and said you are looking for the cheapest option. My advice, next time you book anywhere, make sure what the different rooms offer to avoid unhappiness

Div and Ronnie were very helpful and pleasant hosts. The accommodation is really good value for money with attention to small details, and the house is located in one of, if not the, best area in Komatipoort. Highly recommended.

The accommodation is very good, clean and need. The room is spaces and cover all requirements. Very friendly and supportive staff. Load shedding was catered for which is an extra bonus. I would definitely recommend the accommodation and I will personally make use of the facilities again.

Ronnie was a gentleman - assisted us with filling flasks in the morning when there was load shedding, supplied sufficient lights, gave us tips on restaurants in the town, was a whatsapp away. Meerkat manor is well positioned, easy to find and access. Would go back - recommend to others.

Fantastic stay! The owner is always on hand to help and we always receive the friendliest welcome. It's our go to place to stay when we are in Komatipoort. Rooms are clean and spacious. The property also has a security gate which is a big plus, you feel very safe inside the property.

It was a short stay but very memorable. Place was clean, quiet, and well maintained with a beautiful landscape garden. Host was very friendly and welcoming. I requested a 12pm early check-in for one or two rooms; host advised out of the 4 rooms booked, he will make 2 rooms available but on our arrival 3 rooms were ready for us.

I stayed over at this property a number of years ago when it just opened. I was curious to see if the place has been maintained and if the owners (Ronnie and Diffy) are still the same and if they are still so friendly and helpful. My expectations were fully met. The owners are still the same and even friendlier, just a bit older. It is a pity the dog (Jinx) they had passed away from old age.

The place is still like new. This time I stayed in a family room which was spacious comfortable. The aircon in this part of the world really also helped to make it a pleasant stay. There is a very nice are for guests to enjoy a barbeque outside, which we made use off.
