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!

We stayed in a damp, not aired converted garage with a leaking toilet, wet toilet paper, no shower head (only the pipe) The lady who was running the place only get nice after informing her that we will rate the place Value for money - poor, especially spagetti at R 55 which is a restaurant price but witthout service and self dish washing
Great little paradise. Free good working internet. Great views from the balcony. Very relaxing atmosphere, especially after some tiring days in the Kruger. Close the the Crocodile gate. Can't say anything negative really... The dog escaped when we tried to leave the premises by car, so we spend about half hour in the early morning to get him back, but thats mainly our fault.
