Between the famous 5 star resorts around the Kruger, lies our little paradise. We offer self catering rondawels, an eco friendly chalet, and a variety of bushtents on the river, all en-suite. All have bbq facilities, aircoolers, electric kettles, fridges, microwaves, kitchenettes with bedding and towels. Most have ceiling fans and a box of kitchen goodies.
Here we offer no luxuries except the deafening silence only broken by the call of the wild. Listening for lions, hyenas, jackal, impalas and zebras keep you thrilled at night. Occasionally a leopard will walk along the river, just below the tents, roaring every 5 minutes! Check the many videos from the trapcam. Here you can get an en-suite room for less than breakfast at our neighbours.
In Room Facilities:
* Air cooler

We are situated about 400 meters above sea-level, making it BUSHVELD, home of the big 5.
This is a semi desert with low rainfall. Here a 140 meter borehole may only deliver dust! We are blessed with water from the unpolluted Klasrerie river. The Timbavati region is central to the many attractions of the Bushveld. On the East side we have the middle part of the Kruger National park, with Orpen being the entry gate and Satara the main camp. On the South side the majestic Drakensberg, home of the Black Eagle and the Blyde River, towers over us. The old military radar station (Mariepskop) makes a lovely daytrip for a 4X4 vehicle, with panoramic vistas and swimming in the river at the picnic site. It is said, that from here, you could see when Mugabi cut himself shaving. The River which created the famous Canyon, with viewpoints like God’s window and the Three Rondawels, feeds the Blyde dam which in turn irrigates the tropical fruit export hub of South Africa. All this can be covered by a full day excursion along the Panorama route.
