“What an amazing place and a unique experience in the African bush ! We stayed in January when it is extremely hot, but the setting by the river and under the shade of the trees it was always cool and so pleasant to watch the wildlife on the river bank. We saw Hippo, Giraffe, Zebra, Nyala and plenty more wildlife besides from the braai area, and from the huts. Lions every evening could be heard roaring in the distance. We were lucky to see a large herd of Elephants crossing the river right in front of us, and then drinking from the water hole which we could see from the swimming pool. Both the swimming pool and splash pool are well maintained, and are very inviting to swim in. The whole place is kept so clean, with well kept garden ares, which make it look so pretty. Oli's hospitality is second to none, and Enoch and Michael run the place with such enthusiasm and commitment to making your stay one you will not forget. If you are looking for a truly African bush experience, then this is the place to come to. Having traveled Africa extensively in the last 30 years, this little gem of a place ranks highly amongst the places we have visited.”

“We spent a week at Hennelie’s place, using it as a base for exploring the Kruger National Park. The location is very convenient - for both visiting the park and for obtain food and supplies. Hennelie and her husband had lots of good information and guidance to help us plan each visit to the park. The apartment was clean and had all the conveniences + much needed air conditioning. There was also secure, off-street/covered parking. Highly recommended!”

“We stayed for 2 nights at the beginning of March, and this absolutely wasn’t enough time. The location is unbeatable as it is literally in a nature reserve that is very close to Kruger national park, and it is on the river. The price is also very reasonable compared with many accommodations that allow you to be so close to nature and the national park. Before we arrived, Oli was very communicative and made sure that we had directions and an exact location - which was especially good as our drive took far longer than we expected and we arrived at 4am, but finding the place wasn’t a problem. It was lovely, clean and comfortable (with aircon and mosquito nets), and I was really impressed that there is drinking and hot water (as well as electricity) in a nature reserve! When we left the following morning, we had seen giraffes, zebras and impalas within about 100m of leaving, and baboons before we’d left the reserve (but no hippos for us!). We were given wood (but not charcoal) for our braai in the evening, and Oli arranged a game drive for our second morning. We were taken around the reserve at sunrise by Enock, who was really knowledgable and we added wildebeest, hippos (from a distance), warthogs, jackals and kudu (and probably more) to the animals that we saw within the reserve. Overall, we had a fantastic time, and would not hesitate to recommend staying here to anyone we know that is heading to Kruger.”
