Sweet place but need some attention to the rooms
Bush baby chalet (3 bedrooms) was ours for one night. It wasn't clean. 80% of the bmbook roller blinds were broken, we have to lift them off their hooks to allow light in. We had no hot water the first night. Fuse was off for geyser! Staff were kind and food was nice but wouldn't rush back, ALso - don't go unless you have your own wheels! You'll be stranded.

Not your average hotel
Interesting place, great food, friendly people (super helpful when you get in a pinch, too), and sufficiently clean for a backpackers camp. If you want luxury, don't stay here. If you are up for an adventure, this is as good as a place as any to start.

Typische Camp-Unterkunft
Da wir alleine im Camp (Nebensaison) waren, war natürlich Ruhe pur angesagt und wir bekamen ein Upgrade in die Bush-Baby-Lodge (Haus mit 3 Schlafzimmer); Bushbabys werden abends mit Bananen gefüttert; Die Köchin vor Ort ist immer gut gelaunt und freundlich!

Agréable lodge dans le bush
Voyageurs : 2 adultes et 1 enfant de 9 ans. Facile à trouver. Très bien placé pour Hluluwe Parc et Isimangaliso. Accueil des plus parfaits. Repas du soir et petit-déjeuner compris dans le prix : très complet Un seul bémol, l'eau chaude dans la douche va et vient...
