Quiet, peaceful setting with beautiful grounds. Rooms are large, clean and very private. Has pool and bbq area. We were warmly welcomed by Dave our host, who, along with his wife, Sam, was extremely helpful throughout our stay. All of his recommendations panned out as promised. We stayed there as a base to explore Kruger Park. Great experience!
