Verified reviewexcellent

This is a real African dream. The place is awesome. Luxury in the bush, very nice people, clean houses, 2 swimming pools and a tennis court. Our house had a very nice braai and we enjoyed a view on the Kruger NP from our deck. Could not be better. Thank you Laura & Pascal.
