We also offer accompanied day trips into the Kruger Park, however, you can also explore the big five there in your own vehicle at your own pace.

ADVENTURE

Need some action? Then go on a balloon safari, fly in a micro light over the area, visit various caves, or go river rafting on the Blyde River. For the more adventurous, kloofing is available in Magoebaskloof, or experience the famous sky walk trails which consist of several suspension bridges and slides – the views are simply breathtaking.

My husband and I stayed here for a couple of days on our honeymoon, and I have to say it was amazing, a piece of heaven on earth!!! Everything was great, the massage was a wonderful and relaxing surprise, the food was the best we had on our whole trip, and the rooms wow! Everyone there makes you feel like you are royalty, and they are super sweet. We can't wait to get back in the bush!
