Such a lovely place .. clean and nice houses with good beds.
There is a full kitchen, as there is self catering, barbecue space for the house. Possibility of buying breakfast which is really delicious. Possibility to choose a morning meal package if you want to come early to Kruger. There is a pool and sun loungers. And then there is the view of Kruger. Pretty amazing to see the animals come and drink in the Crocodile River. Conditioner for your soul to relax here ...
Distance to town and a big Spar is about 3 min by car, and to Kruger Melalane Gate about 10 min by car.

Only stayed overnight and would have liked to have stayed a while longer. Clean, well appointed, super friendly staff, great atmosphere. My daughter loved the walks to the scenic views and spent some time at the pool which overlooks the river. It is so tranquil and peaceful that you can feel the stress flow away. Will definitely make a point of going back.

Room Tip: Try to get something on the perimeter

The whole place is incredible. The gardens, all the trees are identified, the lawn in front of the main house, the view to the Crocodile River and Kruger Park... The hours we stay there looking to the river, waiting for any animal and in the end, we find out that it was the best therapy we could find.
All the team was great.
The cottage was enough good, although we think a few details or items could be refurbished.
Very nice experience.

I have visited River Cottage many times over a span of 12 years.
It always stays at the same high level of cleanliness and old world charm.
Sitting close to the river on the deck during dusk, trying to spot wildlife, and succeeding often enough.
River Cottage newer disappoints, you know you are going to get what you have come to expect from this great establishment.
