We spent the Christmas period at Alegria ( 5 days ) . It is a really relaxing and comfortable bush house in quiet surroundings . We were 5 adults and one 12 year old girl . The house is spacious and well furnished with nice touches of local decorations . The perimeter fence for Kruger is about 300 yards away and is ideal for "sundowners" whilst watching herds of elephants having their evening dip in the Crocodile River . We also saw some lions almost get a kill on a small Dik Dik - amazing !
Every day we saw several animals wandering through the garden - warthog families , kudu , zebra , giraffe, all unthreatening as long as you treated them with respect . In the evening we sat outside around a blazing fire in the BOMA which I think means British Officers Messing Area . The sight of the southern heavens never failed to take our breath away - so many stars and planets visible . At the same time the sound backdrop was the odd roar of a lion in the Kruger , thankfully behind the perimeter fence !
In conclusion, if you want to visit Kruger then Alegria is the ideal base to do this - it is highly recommended . Our experience there was fantastic .
We have stayed here often. The sundowners with elephants and close encounters with Zebra, giraffe and antelope make this a very worthwhile stay.
