Stayed here three times during our trip to Southern Africa. Two different rondavals, and a cabin. Lovely place to relax and enjoy the city and plan adventures further afield.
Delightful animals on site, staff took care of naughty moneys and the occasional scorpion. Hey it is Africa that is why lots of us come.

Room Tip: All good, cabins don't have air conditioning.

A beautiful place a little outside the city. Helpful staff and good facilities. We stayed with a group of 15 some in cabins and some in tents. There a lots of animals wandering and a lovely shaded pool area. Good for self catering.

We stayed in the private chalet, which was beautiful. We had a really nice private kitchen and bathroom. The price was very reasonable and the staff were excellent. They arranged for transport from airport and stopped at a grocery store on the way. The owner is very kind and has a very positive relationship with the people who work there. Very good vibe. Quiet and close to the reserve.

Excellent place to stay in Gabaronne. Really civilised! A bit out of the way if you are dependent on public transport, but i managed it and then on the morning I left for the bus to J'Burg, a taxi came for me to take me to the bus station, it was too early for a bus. You will be made most welcome by Hendrick and his Team and animals! A quiet, pleasant place to stay, particularly if you are doing a long trip through the continent. The N.P. is close by if you want to see some more animals!
