                                  Brilliant. Great place to stay.

                                  Great place to stay. Animals from zebras, warthogs, kudus to giant stick insects in your back garden and only a 10 minute drive to Kruger Park. The house itself is spacious and cosy. The owner, Louise is fantastic and will make sure your stay is comfortable. We had a brilliant and memorable time. I would definitely recommend staying here.

                                  Fabulous Getaway

                                  5 of 5
                                  We recently had a couple friends visit us from the US and decided to take some time up in Kruger. We found Khaya Romantica on a website and were able to book. We found the facilities to be more then adequate. The kitchen had everything we needed, and the open fire braai area was used each night. The bedrooms and bathrooms were large, clean, and welcoming and the balcony afforded some views into the KNP. We were 4 adults with more then enough room. We were able to book guided tours into the park, which was only a short drive away. We had visits from local wild life, warthogs, impala, and zebra on our very first day. The property manager was helpful and welcoming, we were even given a bottle of bubbly as, from what I understand, we had the pleasure of being Khaya Romantica's first guests. First, but definitely not the last. We would use the house again in the future and would recommend it to our friends and family.

                                  Just a short note to say that we had a fantastic time. The house you have is absolutely stunning. We have reccomended this to all our friends and family and we hope they will be contacting you soon for reservations. Thanks again jacques & ilze (Nigeria) We just wanted you to know that we've had a great time in your Kruger Park Lodge house. Everything looked very nice and above all a beautifull view. The service was also very good. So maybe in the future we will come again, we were in south africa for the fifth time and still we love this country very much. Kind regards, Mark and Maartje van Geenen (Netherlands) Just to let you know that we had a fantastic time at Phabeni. You were right about the views (and your beautiful house). We will be back, definately! Thanks for all your advice. Best wishes, David and Karen Seaman (UK) Thanks for a wonderful time at your villa. Your help was much appreciated and like you we are now smitten by Africa. Paul Valverde (UK)
