Overview

This is not a commercial business. Only two pensioners willing to share their retirement paradise with selected nice people:
We offer peace & quiet under a dazzling star scape, only broken by the call of the wild.
This is a 30 Ha farm with some wild animals walking around that has been visited by lions, leopards, hyenas, hippos, wild dogs & many smaller cats. You may walk on the ranch, along paths or along the river as you please. We do not have lions & elephants in the garden, so you do not pay thousands per night. We are surrounded by the 5 star ranches where the rich, the famous and the corrupt pays up to R48,000 per night. We hear their Lions, Hyenas, Zebras & Impalas roaring like lions for the attention of the pretty females.
Here we offer no luxuries.
Only the 2 self-catering Kruger type Rondawels, The ANAZING new Eco chalet and the three en-suite bush tents.
The Rondavels are equipped with: Queen & single bed, couch, air cooler, shower & wc, DVD, roof fan, bedding, towels, kitchenette, fridge and BBQ. (guide price R250pp for 2, + R80 for more, all incl.)
Our most popular unit is the romantic bush tent, with bush-bathroom, queen size bed, air cooler, electric kettle, bedding, BBQ & towels.
We also have a larger tent, which sleeps 3 (guide price R199pp for two, + R80pp for more, incl bedding and towel. This one has a kitchen corner with a fridge.
We now built a two bedroomed bushtent with a Kingbed for the parents, and two singles for the kids.
This has nice BUSH kitchen facilities, including a medium fridge and an Microwave.

We offer big 5 game drives in the top ranch in South Africa, and day trips to the Kruger National Park.

Right next to the river we built a new larger tent with a ceiling high enough for a roof fan. The much improved en-suite bathroom uses an Italian close coupled toilet, the gas heated shower a joystick control and even hot water at the basin. There is a eco friendly air cooler (still loose, not installed) and a "lapa" with a bbq, work table, wash basin with hot water, and a simple gas hotplate. Some basic utensils as the monkeys break them,. Sleeps 3 on a 3/4 and a queen bed. Fridge & coffee station. Free monkey poop ON the toilet. Please help me train them better!

Guest Comments

You get what you pay for. An old farm like establishment where "n Boer maak 'n plan"
A good base to explore the Lowveld and Kruger

- Andre Meyer

Goeie plek om weg te breek van alles. Die rustigheid doen mens goed. Geriewe is basies maar goed. Sal weer daar gaan afpak.
- Magda Labuschagne

Lovely, quiet and relaxed atmosphere - could possibly be improved by addition of a "games room / communal lounge" as the cottage was a bit small. But served our purpose as a base to tour the neighbouring sightseeing areas....
- lorraine pook

Very nice place if you like staying in a bush tent.
Very, very nice and enthusiastic owners.

- Anja Burger

The owner Andre was very helpful and has excellent knowledge of the surrounding areas and Kruger Park. We drove the route into the park he suggested and saw the big five in less than 4 hours.
