Eco-tree-house on a bushveld river, in the greater Kruger Park.

About this micro camping
Our farm was used as a hunting farm by a Dutch family in the 50's. After several deceased auctions, I acquired the farm. The two rondawels were 70 years old.
To offer modern alternative accommodation, I hired a crazy architect and built this amazing semi luxury pad for 2 (and a bit) on the seasonal river. We are between the famous ultra expensive 5 star lodges in the Greater Kruger Park. It is a 60sqm apartment with a kitchen lounge, bedroom, bathroom and outside area. It is all solar powered. This unit has a Kingsize bed, with my patented snake and bounceproof base, with an extra bed in the lounge. There is a BBQ to cook those juicy and cheap South African steaks, while keeping an eye on possible wildlife. Aso a large (aaa) fridge, a gas stove, low wattage electric plugs, an 3 speed aircooler to blow over the bed. The shower uses Solar heating. Bedding and towels are included. You also have the use of our pool and the hikes along the river.
At night you should hear the zebras, jackal, lions, hyenas, and regularly the leopards walking along the river. At dawn, the monkeys on the roof or birds will wake you. See many videos of leopards and other wildlife on the two trap cameras. We have very little phone signal, but do have FREE WiFi. We are very near the main Tar road, and only 40Km away from the Orpen Gate of the famous Kruger National Park.
The price is for 2 persons. E7 for extra person.
