A lovely relaxing and peaceful Bnb with lots of space for the kids and a pool. Stunning tall trees and a very accommodating and friendly owner. We needed to come down for the weekend for a family visit and this was the perfect base for us. The rooms were great, lots of space, the beds were super comfy and clean and the sheets crisp and lovely.

We had such a lovely time. The place was clean, comfortable and quiet. Beautiful view of the garden from the veranda. Location is close to shops and Sudwala Caves. Pieter is a great host. Thanks Pieter.

Our stay with Mark and Beryl was the second time and we were received as old friends. We liked it very much, the hospitality, the beautiful garden, the birds... If we return to South Africa again, we will certainly go back to Crocodile's nest again.

Oh my goodness, what a start to our Kuger trip. We hired a car and met our friend at Kruger airport. This was our first stop before heading in. Its a good idea as they close the gates of the park and if you are delayed as we were you can be sure of a place to stay. What a welcome we had from Beryl! It was like arriving at a favourite relatives, so welcoming, thank you. The accommadation is absolutely superb and the breakfast, Wow! Served in a raised area, its just so lovely and tasty in a wonderful setting. We left Beryl with lots of hugs, a glad heart and a full tummy. Happy, happy memory

Crocodile Nest is a lovely property with heaps of room for kids to let off steam, a swimming pool and friendly dogs, plus comfortable accommodation, yummy breakfast, friendly staff and delicious citrus fruit. An easy drive from Jo'burg, but close to shops in Nelspruit its an excellent location on the way to Kruger especially if you're jet-lagged off the plane

We stopped at the Crocodile nest on our way to the Kruger Park and back. We were made to feel like arriving at a friend's home and were treated as family. The unit was comfortable and clean, the garden gorgeous... Breakfast was delicious. Beryl and Mark were not only generous hosts but they also displayed genuine kindness. They took time to chat with us, to advise us and help us in various ways. I strongly recommend the Crocodile Nest.

We stayed over at Crocodile Nest on our return from Mozambique to Cape Town. It's a great spacious and lush space, particularly after a long day in the car. Traveling as a family with two kids of 6 and 7 it's always a challenge to find accommodation with suitable rooms that don't cost and arm and a leg and Crocodile's Nest provides that. In fact I was almost sad we didn't spend another night to take advantage of the garden and the nearby access to the South of the Kruger Park. Thanks Berryl, for providing such a wonderful space!

We always stay here when visiting friends and family in the area because of the pretty mountainous surrounds, the beautiful shady gardens, its convenient position just outside Nelspruit (and close enough to Kruger National Park, Swaziland and Moçambique). The staff are always friendly, Beryl and Mark are generous and caring hosts and the rooms are unique and comfortable. The thatched rondawels offer a cosy taste of Africa, whilst cosy timber cottages are dotted throughout the garden. The swimming pool is immaculately clean and the breakfasts served upstairs overlooking the garden are generous and tasty.

We stopped over here on our way from East London to the Kruger Park. We were met by very friendly hosts who showed us our very spacious and comfortable two roomed apartment. Kitchen was well equipped and lounge extreme comfortable. Home away from home. The yard is a birders parodies and to wake up to that was an added bonus. The tips we got for our trip into the park were invaluable and we saw exactly what we were told we would see exactly were they said it would be. Even down to the leopard. Thank you so much for a very comfortable stay
