Accommodation and setting was fantastic, but the breakfast co-ordination was lacking.

We are right in the boarders of the Kruger national Park. The Crocodile River is what separates us from the Kruger. The Chalets will quite comfortably accommodate up to 4 people each. Enjoy a sun-downer in the comfort of your own private patio.
