We had a lovely time there!

The house is very spacious and you have almost everything you might need for your stay. We also enjoyed having animals pass by to drink water and cool off right in front of us. We definitely got more than what we were expecting. Sandra and Nora were just amazing, friendly and eager to help with anything. I look forward to yet another stay. Sandra went out of her way to help us with activities for the weekend. Much appreciated.

It was an awesome stay!

Sandra and Nora were wonderful. They made our stay very comfortable and fun. Nora made sure we had a clean house and any extra assistance we needed. Then Sandra organised the game drive with Bheki, who was just as awesome. He was very friendly and professional. We enjoyed ourselves very much. What you see is exactly what you get and more!

Thank you for a most relaxing stay at your beautiful lodge. The accommodation was luxurious, well serviced, very neat and clean. We have received a warm welcome from Sandra and Nora on arrival and I want to thank them for the attention and special care given to us, we were well looked after. We spend many hours relaxing on the patio, deck and around the pool, with many animals coming so close to the lodge. We were impressed and cannot wait for the next visit to this special lodge.

5 Days of heaven!!! On arrival I could first not believe that I am so very blessed to stay in this beautiful lodge! Everything about this lodge was just unbelievable! 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.

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
