          This is a 100% recommendation. Perfect stay for one or more days in the bush (or as a great base close to Kruger) Super food - clean rooms and de staff is very friendly. You wont be disappointed for sure.

          Hello there. My Family and I are travelling from Australia and arriving into SA in Johannesburg. Would you recommend us hiring a car to travel from the airport so we could use it during the stay there? Do we have to book the game reserve visits separately and if so how much per person as an estimate? Do we use their vehicles? Thank you Husain
