David Schneeberger Feb 2010
A nice slice of Paradise just blocks from the entrance to Kruger. The rooms are just delightful (award winning material). The hosts were very warm and had a can do attitude also Phil is a great source of local knowledge.
TIP: Plan to make yourself available from 5pm-7pm every day for their "Sundowner" a local tradition of taking a load off your feet to visit and compare notes with the owners (Phil and Margi) and other guests. Everyone had so many great nuggets of info we wished we could have stayed for more days (2 are not enough).
The beautiful botanical features are a massive labour of love. The birds were a delight and Oh - that pool- tranquility with your own cozy bathrobe - nice touch. High marks for security too.
