We stayed here in April and had a good time... However a couple of concerns before I get to the good stuff... 1, this is truly a CHAIN SMOKERS PARADISE. If you don't smoke (which we don't), you may struggle here. The owner and many of the guests while we were here just sit and smoke either in the common...

This logde looks simple outside but the time we entered, we felt the homy atmosphere. The owners were warm in welcoming us. The place is quiet and safe. Kruger national Park perimeter fence is just a meter away and overlooking the crocodile river. The KNP's crocodile bridge gate is just about 10 mins away from this lodge so it is...

The beautiful and affordable lodge is 10 minutes from Kruger Park. It was so peaceful and felt like our home away from home. The charming two dogs guarded our room throughout each night of our stay. Aside from the comfortable and 3 star hotel like accommodations, there’s also tons of entertainment and fun at the lodge. You can relax by...

Komatipoort is an economic yet high standard place for Kruger Safari Trip. In stead of paying expensive package to go safari from Nelspruit or Jo'burg, you should go to komatipoort and get the same thing with much lower price! Kruger View is a nice place. Dave is very helpful where he can provide very accurate information about this area; help...

We spent two nights at Kruger View and had a great time. Dave, the owner, is very helpful, can take you on a driving safari, and puts on a great braai. There were a lot of other interesting travelers staying there, and you can have morning coffee while watching game from the deck. We would definitely go back there. A...

Fantastic find. Easy directions, good parking and friendly welcome. Great room, lovely house with all sorts of interesting details. Bathroom perfect, mosquito nets appreciated. Brilliant view of animals in Kruger park coming down to the river to drink whilst sitting on the veranda with a cool beer! Can't beat that! Binoculars and advice thrown in for free. Dave made a...

Being already a bit older, we were suprised that backpackers aren't always the ones we knew from the past. Kruger View is a beautiful place close to Kruger and as it names says with a view on te park. With a cold Black Label you have a great view from the deck and with some luck you even see the...

Kruger View Backpackers is a warm, friendly lodge with helpful staff who went out of their way for us. It is well located, we actually saw animals in Kruger Park from the front deck. A must if you are going to Kruger Park, Mozambique or Swaziland.
