Nice place along the river with crocs and hippo’s. We had the Kingfisher Lodge, a beautiful, modern hoise with two bedroomd and a double shower and spacious terrace. A beatyful place to stay and very comfortable. It’s 40 minutes from Kruger (Phalaborwa gate).

Good afternoon. Unfortunately we cannot allow fishing as this is a conservation area and further also very dangerous with the crocodiles and hippo's.

Good afternoon. Eastgate airport at Hoedspruit is closest. Yes we do have a restaurant on the premises. You should just let us know beforehand if you want to include meals. Kind regards Wessel
