Right in between the famous lodges,
where the rich and glamorous stay,
lies our little piece of heaven.

[pool]The pool & the two rondavels. To the left (70 meters) are the two bush tents, and to the right, the Firefly eating lapa, and to the far right, about 30 meters away is our house. The camping terrain and the ablution block lie in the opposite direction.

This is a small family-run business where most customers become our friends. The Timbavati region of the Kruger is central to the many attractions of the Bushveld. From here you can do daytrips into the »Kruger Park, visit the Cheetah Project, the Maholoholo rehab centre, the reptile park, Swadini Resort, the Blyde River / Motlatse Canyon and Traditional African villages. You can hike along the bottom of the Blyde River / Motlatse Canyon, swim or jump down the waterfall, or walk between wild animals. Visit the millionaire's playground and partake in their amenities at our budget prices. Modern chalets, rustic en-suite bush tents, or camping under huge trees next to the Klaserie river, we have it all. Listen to the lions roar or the hyenas and other animals cry out in the night. Big 3 or big 5 game drives or bush walks arranged. Traditional meals served.


PLEASE NOTE: There is nothing nicer than having had the whole camp full over a long weekend, with many different groups, and everyone coming in personally to thank you for a lovely time and for our hospitality. They tell us how they enjoyed the silence, the bush sounds, the birds, the unbelievable sky and the bush trails. Some of them came for one night & stayed for 3 nights. Some tell us that it was their nicest accommodation in SA so far!
Many keep coming back and sending their friends. Most of them are professionals, with the "lowly educated" busy with their Masters degree. Sometimes, half our customers are medical doctors, with engineer boy- or girl-friends... but please, we are not snobs! Some of our most memorable friends we ever had here, were hardworking firemen, security personnel, tradesmen … once a real British bobby! Our customers often mingle and organise camp parties or cook-togethers. They share their cars to Kruger Park and halve their costs.


And then: There is nothing worse than having a truck driver arrive here expecting the Ritz, and complaining all the time. Then demanding his money back and writing to the booking agent to remove you from their books as "the place is a dump and not fit for human occupation."


So please understand:


We are eco friendly! You can read more on our Information page.

Sunrise at Kruger.. We wait for the sun to see the lions and the vultures wait for the lions to leave, to get to their breakfast.
