Exceptional

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 09 Oct 2023
Bruce and Ilse make this place. Yes the location is perfect, the food is amazing, the accommodations are comfortable and the showers are hot...but you can probably find these comforts elsewhere. What is more rare is the elevation of an experience that comes from exceptional hosts working hard to make an impression. Come to this place, meet these people, sit around the fire and share conversation. You will have no regrets booking this lodge.
Date of stay: October 2023
Room Tip: Get a chalet for added comfort.

We have been coming to SA for years, always staying in the rest camps. Selected this option based on TA reviews and a couple we met a few years back. Bruce and his wife Elsa are managers and they totally make the camp experience. Very attentive to their guests. Very inclusive making sure everyone is happy and comfortable. Interesting background and conversationalists. I would pay to stay there just for the history lesson of SA. In my opinion, tents are the only way to go. They do have a few chalets with Air Conditioning if that is important. Nice small infinity like pool overlooking the Crocodile River. We saw elephants crossing the river, of course many hippos, and a variety of general game right from our front porch. Location is 3 minute drive across the river on a bridge to Kruger National Park. Food was very good and plentiful. We really enjoyed our two night stay there. Highly recommended and will return and stay longer. Good base in the south end of the park for game. Honor bar I stocked at reasonable prices, but only 10k to Komatipoort for more selection.

Room tip: Loved the tent with the kitchen. Larger, private, and having a frig in the room is very convenient.

We travel to Africa annually, this was our first stay at this lodge and we cannot recommend them highly enough. We will definitely return. We especially enjoyed the mixing and meeting of all guests at mealtimes . The hosts are superb and really know how to ensure everyone has a fantastic experience. An extra plus is the proximity to the gate into Kruger , we really couldn’t fault it. Many thanks Allan and Michelle, don’t change anything.

We stayed for 3 nights in river view room number 9 and it was a fantastic experience.

Pros:
- Room was right outside crocodile bridge gate, which meant being able to quickly reach your lodging after a long tiring drive in kruger.
- Host had a good sense of humour and was extremely hospitable. The host would knock on our door whenever there were game sightings available or dinner was ready.
- All rooms had views of the crocodile river and it was very scenic to wake up to the sight of the crocodile river and the chirping of birds.
- Food was decent and definitely sufficient.

Cons:
- The shower area for our room number 9 tend to flood after a shower.

Room tip: For those travellers who prefer a more traditional type of room, book the river front rooms which are your typical concrete hotel rooms instead of tents.
