Early morning call

Posted Dec 27, 2016
Pros: peaceful and very attractive
Cons: lighting at night. Mosquitos!
Location: Only stayed two nights so no time to investigate the location. Quite near an entrance to Kruger though
Remote and within the Botanical Gardens, we loved this quiet oasis...until 5am when the zebras appeared on our veranda - lovely to see but not so keen on the noise.

Beautiful cottage!

We were only there for one night but loved the cottage. It was like a home away from home. The staff was very helpful in helping us maximize our time in the area.

Rooms looked out to garden but had walkway right in front of windows so we couldn't leave the curtains open. Bathrooms were outdated. We were charged for a tourist map that we didn't ask for. We were expecting it would be much closer to the canyon. Breakfast was great and staff were attentive. We got to see zebras milling around the grounds at breakfast.

Wonderful Hospitality

Exotic location in Blyde River Canyon Reserve with zebras and antelope wandering the grounds. Wonderful hospitality and delicious food. Beautiful, rustic decor but clean and modern facilities as well.
