Met ons aankoms op 20 Desember 2014 het besoekers aan die Kruger Wildtuin reeds die woonstel wat vir ons bespreek was foutiewelik beset. Die beampte van SANParke wat woonagtig is op die perseel was behulpsaam en het die probleem baie vinnig opgelos. Ons was dankbaar en het dit waardeer.
Gary Warne
Very clean and neat.
INA PELSER
Ons het lekker gebly in die kamp. Die badkamers was altyd skoon en die opwas plek vir die skottelgoed was ook altyd skoon. Daar was altyd warm water en die kamp word goed onderhou.
MADIE GRENFELL
Both camps were clean and very nice, will definitely go back again.

The stay was excellent
Karel van Weele
Very NICE!!
Veda Dworak
Was also a very exciting experience, only thing needed was a shop to buy food.
Dirk Pretorius
Our trip to Kruger was super as usual - saw the big 5 in 1 day. Slept under the stars in Malelane - a bit daring taking into account the leopard sightings in the area. Booking by safari.com was very professional - will definitely use you again. Thanks
Forsh Mthimkhulu
I'd like to thank you,for the hospitality that I had. I don't have any complaint,everything was up to standard. If I do get a chance to visit again, I will. Thanks a lot.
Gerhard van Wyk
Power were off all night at Malelane. Not even a candle was available. Bat droppings om my bed at Lower Sabie and on the kitchen at Satara. This is not healthy and recommendable.Please attend to this. Thank you

Malelane rest camp is a very small intimate camp, the bundalow was very clean and well kept. Meal times are a bit of a problem as there is no electrical stove/oven and no microwave, these are not essentials but would make life a whole lot easier.
Timothy
Very nice. Clean and quiet, just what we needed away from the city.
Martin Lydall
Wow it was great to be back in the Kruger - I have not come for years. It was an exceptional experience again. I love the wide wild spaces, warm weather, friendly people (both staff and fellow guests), and the facilities were great. It helped that we were very lucky with our sightings and that my two small kids were in awe of the place. Coming back soon, only thing I will change is that I am going to stay a lot longer. Thanks to all at the Kruger for a wonderful job of looking after our South African treasure! You do us all proud.

The Kruger National Park has so much to see and we enjoyed the whole experience. During the day it was quite warm and quite chilly at night. The variety in landscapes is so beautiful and we saw different types of animals in each type of landscape. We are already planning our next trip to the Kruger National Park. If someone is searching for a quiet and peaceful place to go for the holidays we will recommend the Kruger National Park. Next time we are taking the Rhino walking Trial. The prices is maybe a bit harsh for South African citizens but the rest of the experience is fantastic! We will see you soon.

Ons het dit baie geniet! Dit was net 'n skok om uit te vind ek moet vir elke dag ook die hek fooie betaal! Dit maak dat die prys van 'n staan plek R255 per dag vir twee persone kos wat hoog is.
J. Venter
Ablutions well maintained. Food in Skukuza and Crocodile Bridge camp not so nice
Kerry Lanham-Love
Camping facilities excellent, everything perfect except for; (1) it is on the border of Kruger so your view is of agricultural land and factories: (2) there is a train than comes through every night at 2am. Noisy camp site, don't feel like you're in the bush at all. We moved to Olifants.
Bettie Van Zyl
Enjoyed stay very much except for lack of warm water in evenings to shower, no zink for washing clothes especially with small children and frence was not safe. Hyena came into camp at night and ate neighbor's crocs. No electric fencing Otherwise it was great!

There are two things that we suggest for the camp:firstly we had to drive to Berg en dal to buy wood, why cant you buy wood at Malelane gate. Secondly just have a coffee station in the bunglows. We drove to Berg en dal to have a cup of coffee.

Our stay at Malelane was pleasant.

Hi The trip was wonderful, the accommodation was comfortable, the facilities simple but we had everything we needed. We enjoyed very much staying at his camp. Just a small complaint. The staff a and the housing of the staff was a bit noisy, perhaps just a small explanation to them that people have come to be in nature and listen to nature. but they were efficient at there jobs. Many Thanks
