WOW! Its difficult to know where to start when you have had such an incredible trip so such a breath taking place!
Phabeni was our home away from home whilst we explored Kruger Park - a beautiful, clean, well maintained and generally delightful property. Every day when we had finished our adventures the homely environment of Phabeni was the next thing to look forward to. A Braai (BBQ) on the deck or relaxing on the incredibly comfortable sofas was generally the plan of action. Bedrooms very spacious and ensuite bathrooms were much appreciated.
Kruger Park lodge itself is brilliant - feels incredibly safe and they site owners have clearly thought about every detail - notably the hippo lake with frequent hippo appearances! Golf green looked in fab condition. Reception staff were beyond helpful - not too mention super friendly.
Overall cannot wait to return to Phabeni - ideal accommodation for resting after south african adventures - excellent location for fitting in maximum safari time - 15 min drive to the nearest gate (also phabeni!)
I can't imagine that spending a week in the tranquil setting that is Hazyview and its surrounds would have been better anywhere else than the Kruger Park Lodge. The Lodge boasts immaculately kept grounds and thatched chalets which cater to your every need during your stay.
Our days consisted of exploring the wide range of activities available in the area; from the Big Swing at Mac Mac Falls, to the Kruger Park, entered at either of the two closest gates, Phabeni and Paul Kruger.
Our evenings were spent braaiing using the chalet's facilities (braai coals available at reception) and enjoying sundowners overlooking the beautiful view from our deck. Sunset is the best time to visit the hippo hide to watch the hippos play and socialise - a special experience. We borrowed board games from reception, which was a lovely way to spend time with family in the evenings.
Overall, I can't wait to go back again!
