    The chalets are clean and practical. A good setting to enjoy the bush. However the grounds are untidy, the weeds are growing between the chalets, the little bit of green grass or lawns are obscured by unsightly weeds standing knee high.

    This was my first time in Kruger Park. The camp was clean and there are several facilities in good conditions. However, in the house there were not enough electric plugs... for instance the refrigerator and the air conditioned shear just one. It means you should make decision or the AC or the fridge... In general terms the place is nice, the supermarket is very good and also the swimming pool was ok. At the end I recommend!
