Besides the bottom room we were given smelling of mould that made it difficult for us to sleep and the family, which dominated the tv / lounge (only issue there is that _ that made us feel uncomfortable like visiting someone's home for the first time) we were not entirely relaxed. Overall the manager/owner made us feel good and comfortable, he was friendly and helpful and made the best dinner!

Kruger View Lodge is an amazing place, you can see the giraffes from the balcony in the Kruger Park. The ensuite we booked was spacious and well decorated. The staff is very welcoming and has great recommendations on what to do in the Kruger Park.
