Lovely people doing an awsome job at making you feel welcome and at home. We sat till late to tell our stories to each other. They have three dogs that are the sweetest animals making it even better.
Amazing food and drinks.
Secure and safe.

Coming down the way from Tzaneen we arrived a bit later than expected (as we were visiting the beautiful Marakele national park before). This was really a pitty, as the Guest Lodge is really nice and offers a wonderful view on the surrounding landscape.
The way to the lodge is a bit exceptional, as it goes between high fences (from the surrounding game lodges), but it is worth every meter.
Monika and Dave gave us a very warm welcome.
Our room (Baobab) was very big and offered a wonderful bathroom as well as a own small terrace.
As we ordered dinner in advance, they prepared us (and another couple) a very nice dinner and we were chatting together till late at night.
Also the breakfast was prepared with attention and love.
Looking forward to stay at this wonderful location and hosts again...

Room Tip: Baobab ist the biggest one

"David and Monika are incredible human beings.
Simply the most generous and caring hosts on the planet! I was on an expedition and stopped at their place, not only did they made me feel very welcomed but they also woke up at 5am to be here with me for the breakfast. They truly are incredible people. I recommend you their place 600%. Monika and David: thank you again! Know that you are always welcomed to visit me in London! Thank you!"

We were very pleasantly surprised by this venue. The personal touch makes a huge difference and the location is excellent.

Our food was specifically prepared for us taking our needs into account.

Thanks Dave and Monika. Will surely visit again.

We stayed here the night before the Marekele National Park marathon and we couldn't have chosen a more perfect spot to get a good nights sleep (and dinner) before the race and a great breakfast after. With the cottage's beautiful setting we felt like we may as well already have been in the park. The friendly owners and their equally friendly dogs:) made us feel very at home and I left with the recipe of the delicious dinner we had. Will be back next time we do the race!
