African Safari Accommodation at it’s best

Our Lodge is tucked away in the most beautiful bushveld of southern Kruger National Park region. This region forms the backdrop to a spectacle of wild sounds, smells and sightings of wild animals. Located on the border of the Kruger National Park where you can see the ‘Big Five’ as well as a myriad of other flora and fauna, which is a short and easy drive away.

The Den Kruger is surrounded by a magical bushveld, where you have the unique privilege of living among birds and animals as they roam freely in the wild, and drink from our waterhole. You can sit and admire them up close. With the natural sounds and scents of the bush, guests are quickly transported to a surreal feeling far away from everyday routine and responsibilities. In this wonderful setting where zebra, giraffe, kudu, impala, blue wildebeest, bush buck and warthog welcome you. Bird watchers are treated to endemic birds of all sizes and an orchestra of bird calls.

So modern, so beautiful, so magical! Having sun-downers in the swimming pool ....without saying a single word just listening to the voice of the bush! I've been in lodges all over S-A and even a couple in Mauritius and let me tell you this lodge will see me again!! Thank you to Kevin and Sandra for your friendly assistance!

Our stay at The Den was nothing short of fantastic. From the beginning it was a pleasure dealing with Kevin regarding the booking and confirmations. In the week leading up to our departure i received regular communication/instructions and information. The staff at the home were fantastic...thank you Sandra and Nora for making our stay hassle free and a truly relaxing weekend in nature. We were well impressed with the accommodation, amenities and overall the home is exactly what you see in the pictures.

The Den with a view!

Beautiful modern house! It is very spacious and has a beautiful view! The bedrooms are in a separate building from the living area (kitchen/dinning/tv), which is very nice and private! Loved it! Sometimes the hot water in the shower can fluctuate a bit from hot to cold and back again. But it is really minor and not a big deal.

Mgf7

Exceptional place, exceptional value for money.

Amazing comfortable living spaces/ entertainment area, excellent quality furniture and finishes, exceptional value for money, very efficient management and helpful staff. Very easy access to Kruger Park, but animals come close to the house so literally game viewing is possible without leaving the house. Also easy walk/ drive down to peaceful viewing spots on the Crocodile River
