I am a travel agent so I have travelled and stayed at many resorts. bed and breakfast, home stays etc I have to say that our stay at Swagat at Kruger Park Lodge was amazing. What a beautiful place. Comfortable, very big and spacious. It was set in a very peaceful area. Very clean and we had everything we needed. If you are going for a week or want to stay for a few nights before or after you commute to Kruger from JNB, it is a great option. It worked at very well for us as we had flown from Cape Town to JNB, rented a car and drove ourselves to Kruger. We stayed here before entering the park where then we stayed in the parks. It was so nice to be able to unwind and relax before heading to Kruger. There was a laundry facility near by which we used. Although this is a big house with a nice big kitchen, we did choose to get food at the resteraunt at Kruger Lodge. The Villa was so nice though , we didn't want to leave it, so we went and ordered the dinner to go and brought it back to the villa and enjoyed a nice meal in our jammies. The resteraunt was very accomodating wrapping everything up and we had all we needed in the villa to sit around the nice dining room table and enjoy a quiet family dinner. We were able to then relax in the living room with our maps and plan out our self drive safari. The grocery was very easy to get to, right up the road. Kruger Gate was only like 15 minutes if not less. Heeten, the owner, was amazing. He will help you with your trip plans and is an excellent source of information. But what I liked most is he is very passionate about his villa, South Africa and all that the area has to offer. He obviously takes pride in his place and the area.
