              Hosts very friendly, accommodating, helpful. Rooms lovely, clean, well equipped.Suggest to inform visitors that there is limited signal, and install tech to be able to communicate with hosts/main house in event of emergency.

              I loved the quiteness of the place. The improvement can be the pool, the place doesn't have it and it was blazingly hot.

              The gas shower was a bit tricky at first but was good to allow us all to shower directly after each other. The sleeper couch is a bit old and could use some replacing but otherwise the accommadation was excellent and had everything we needed.

              We only stayed the night on our way to Kruger Park. Slept like a baby. You can hear the river from the unit. Well equipped and neat.
