We were met by a very friendly receptionist. Area is very dry but still beautiful. Would suggest they
do paved camping areas to eliminate most of the red sand. Ablution blocks were clean. The resort is
close to the Kruger National Park gate. The resort is also close to the nearest convenience store.

Phalaborwa Safari Park was the right choice for me and my family as we had a wonderful stay. Its location is perfect and its just a stone throw away from the Kruger National Park. The reception personnel was very accommodating and even the security personnel were friendly and helpful.

Most beautiful resort with sparkling clean chalets, very private. Very romantic pool, feels like it is a very exclusive resort but at a very affordable price. Close to Kruger Park, restaurants etc.The rooms are perfect with the best linen, aircons etc. The outside shower was the best!!The staff is excellent!

Excellent value and comfort. Convenient location - close to the Kruger entrance gate andd the restaurant across the road is handy for a quick breakfast early in the morning. Ablution blocks were great. Staff very friendly and informative. We camped in a well-shaded area with electrical power.

My wife and I stayed here on the night before we entered the Kruger for a twelve day holiday in the park. After three days of travelling by car from Cape Town, the chalet was just what we needed for a good night's rest and a bright and early entry through Phalaborwa Gate the next morning. You cannot beat this place for location - 250m from the gate! The chalet has everything you need for a self-catering stay and was comfortable and spotlessly clean. Reservation online was painless and the check-in friendly and efficient. A definite first choice when I travel there again.

The caravan park is well-run and maintained. The staff are always busy and ready to assist if needed. The ablutions are spotless. It's very convenient to the Kruger Park Phalaborwa gate - right next door - so access to Kruger is simple.

Great location for visiting KNP, we booked for 5 days and ended up staying 10: Will definitely recommend to all our friends. Clean and well organized. We will be back sooner rather than later, close to shopping centers for anything you might need.

I am deeply disappointed to the power interruptions in that we had over 18 power interruptions in the three months that we stayed at the resort even cutting our stay shorter.
It was never a holiday to relax as a person was always concerned when the power would be restored although a service was offered to plug in the portable deep freezer at the office yet the fridge/freezer in the caravan stayed off until power was restored. The manageress needs support from head office to source a standby generator for the campers

After a very long hot journey on shocking roads, we drove in to the resort and instantly started relaxing and feeling that at long last we were on holiday, The staff were efficient and friendly. Our room was wonderful and close to the pool.We had a peaceful nights rest after making a braai and to our surprise there was a delightful outdoor shower off the bathroom.We were totally refreshed the next morning when we departed.
