If you have a place in SA, please feel free to start a new topic in the Lodge, camp and operator news subforum. Thanks, Matt.

I think that is a great idea and am not sure why it is not offered more. A niche for sure. Plus it can be done without exhorbitant prices.
I am from the Limpopo area and grew up there. My family is still lives there and we visit that area a lot. I love the Soutpansberg Mountains -- I grew up with a view of the range and they are engraved in my mind. I teared up the first time I took my boys to the house I lived in since I was 5 and showed them the view from my bedroom of the Soutpansberg.
Our place is in Hazyview -- an area that we really enjoy. Private message me and I can send you more details. I'd love to hear more about your place as well.
Cheers.

Well written Marcelle.

 

I think Kruger Park is often under-rated by safari snobs and that it does a lot of things right that many East Africa parks could learn from.

 

Gotta Love Kruger Park

Kruger Park is my spiritual home.I have been going there since a babe in arms and want my ashes scattered there when I die.

@adair You may well have bumped into @Sharifa who's been going to Kruger since 1960, as she explains in her ongoing trip report here.

A warm welcome @adair

 

Kruger is also a special place for me and Panthera Pardus. My children also travelled to Kruger from a very young age and are very passionate about it.
