I saw this historical interest in our book of Gateway to Kruger Park. It was fascinating. The shoe itself is an exact replica of the one in the nursery rhyme Old lady who lived in a shoe. Inside are amazing religious sculptures that an artist sculpted if people from The Bible.

Extremely unfriendly welcome, unconfortable, not clean at all, "antique" furniture, should clean the pool, signs all over the place with DONT'S. Room war not ready when we arrived. Unfriendly comment: "you only booked in tomorrow". Which, what we could prove, was not true…...

My husband has always wanted to see The Shoe so we stopped there on our visit recently. You pay R5 per person to enter the shoe museum. It was interesting but filled mostly with statues from a local artist. You can't go up the stairs to see the upper level. Although not that

If you are like me and are intrigued by the whole concept of a house made of a shoe basically like in the nursery rhyme, know that you can just go there, see the shoe maybe take a tour of their cave and well move on. The accommodation is firstly NOT in the shoe like I thought it

The shop is not very well stocked and the shoe is really not worth the visit. It is near the caves which are a better option. Stop if you are in the area, but do not go out of your way to visit this attraction.

"just don't go there….."
"If the hotel is like the restaurant, I would stay away."
"Talk to the owners, our room was for a family, we had bunk beds to the front and a queen behind the big stone fireplace. There was a kitchenette if you were planning a longer stay with dishes, utensils for eating and cooking, and a brie out the front door."
