We live on a small ranch between the most famous 5 star game lodges in the Greater Kruger Park.
Since our kids got married, their two outside apartments were standing empty, and we fixed them up for tourists.
This is not a commercial business, just our lovely retirement ranch we like to share with nice people. While we try to keep everything working and clean, there is absolutely no luxuries here, except the deafening silence and the amazing starscape.
The self catering rondawels feature a thatch roof, a kitchen, a large fridge, gas hotplate, bathroom with hot shower, bedroom with queen plus 3/4 beds, ceiling fan, air-cooler, and optional air-conditioner.
As the demand grew, we also built a romantic tent on the river.
Later we added the 4 bed two bedroomed tent for families.
Some wild animals roam around our place and we regularly hear lions, hyena, leopards, zebras and other wild animals. Monkeys visit us virtually every day. We can arrange big 5 game drives and full day Kruger safaris on open vehicles. We are 45Km from the Orpen gate of Kruger Park.
