Green, wonderful and cosy place near Kruger NP, good place to relax after the Kruger excitement. Nice people, great garden, good pool, perfect patio, many birds and we really saw a hippo on the street. Enjoyed the stay very much near Hazyview.

"Every room is excellent."
"The honeymoon suite is a dream."
"The familyroom attached to the main house is perfect for a family! It has a sperate room for 2 kids and a separate toilet!"
"We had been in Kruger the car was dirty and we were returning our car and they washed it for us."
"I've said no the TV but if you have your own SA card or rent one the answer is yes."
