Secluded accommodations

Kruger Cottage is a private, self-catering house that comfortably sleeps 6-8.

We have been rated as a three-star establishment by the Tourism Grading Council of South Africa, assuring you of quality.

Kruger Cottage is ideally suited to family reunions or other gatherings where people like to spend time together, including preparing wonderful meals to share.

This unique house started as a traditional rondavel (circular house), which now constitutes the two smaller interleading guest bedrooms, each with a private en-suite bathroom.

Beautifully crafted additions form an open-plan kitchen, dining area, and living room. There are stunning vaulted thatched-roof ceilings throughout that provide architectural interest.

Cooling tiled floors throughout lead you to the large covered verandah, splash pool, and braai (outdoor barbeque) area. This provides a comfortable venue for sitting peacefully to listen to the sounds of the hippos grunting in the river, the hooting of the owls and other wildlife as you enjoy the evening from the comfort of Kruger Cottage.

Bedrooms and bathrooms

The master bedroom has a double bed and private en-suite bathroom. The two smaller bedroom rooms have two single beds each. One set may be converted into a queen-sized bed upon request. A futon in the living room provides additional sleeping space for two people.

Linens and cleaning schedule

Linens, bath, and kitchen towels are provided. Guests are asked to please provide their own swimming towels.

The house is professionally cleaned once a week, but other arrangements may be made.
