Dave runs the place. He is a bit strict, but very fair and accommodating. He drove me into town and to the bus stop in his own car. He cooked an amazing braai (one night just because there were a bunch of people who were leaving South Africa the next day and had not experienced a proper braai. The day trips were awesome


Kruger View is an excellent choice for anyone wishing to visit Kruger National Park. Dave, the proprietor, provides cozy, inexpensive lodging within a few minutes drive of the Crocodile Gate entrance. Rebeccah, a professional safari/game driver, is usually available. Kruger View lodge provides multiple barbeque/braai stations and tables, allowing guests to self cater in style, and Dave often provides nice meals. There are many other opportunities for dining nearby. Great value! Get directions!
