Amazing! We should have stayed longer!
Lituba Place, the name for this house, was WAY beyond our expectations. The house is both rustic and refined, with touches such as a small pool for cooling off. The main attraction, however, is the setting.
We loved sitting out on the back porch and watching the wildllife. Every morning over breakfast and every evening, various animals would come wandering by. On our first morning, four zebras came by and visited for about 20 minutes. Other mornings and afternoons before dinner we were visited by warthogs, wildebeests, a whole family of giraffes, large groups of impala, an ostrich, mongooses, grey duikers, greater kudus and others.
On days when we did not go into Kruger National Park, we would walk the fenceline between Kruger and Marloth. We always saw something interesting. Since it is springtime here, we were able to observe mating behaviors by huge wild animals such as hippo and rhinos. Huge herds of elephants were visible -- sometimes within feet of the fence. All other sorts of large animals, including lion, were also visible. The variety of birds was equally impressive.
A few hints for future guests:
1) Follow Steph's instructions to get there. Don't trust your GPS! Ours put us in the wrong place.
2) Buy a bail of lucern (green hay) from the store up the street and put it out in the area beyond the watering hole behind the house to attract more animals.
3) The local pub is actually quite nice with simple but tasty meals, cold beer and free WiFi.
4) Having never been there before, we were unsure about self-driving inside Kruger. Our advice is: Don't worry! It is easy and the best way to travel in Kruger. Make sure you arrive at the gate early, since they often reach the daily car limit by 7:30 AM. Arrive by 6:30 for best viewing and short lines. Once inside the park, make maximum use of the small dirt roads. The paved roads are more hectic and tend to have less wildlife. Arriving via the Crocodile Bridge entrance, we recommend heading for the S28 for a good viewing expience. We were in a compact rental and never had a problem on the dirt roads, although a 4WD or some other car with high clearance would have made it easier to see over the tall grasses.
5) And most of all, stay more than just one week! We wish we had stayed at least two or more.
Great venue in interesting location
Wonderful house in a rustic location where animals came by from time to time. House was furnished with all necessary appliances and utensils. Very clean and owner very accommodating. Would be a five star if it had Wifi on site as travelers were also business people who had reports to send back to home office. Recommend highly.
Thank you very much. We do our very best to give our guests the best time in Lituba Place!
We hebben genoten in Lituba Place!
We hebben genoten van ons verblijf in Lituba Place. Het huis ziet er erg verzorgd uit, mooie kamers en een ruime woonkamer. Zeker de master bedroom is prachtig met zijn royale inloop douche/bad. Daarnaast hebben wij genoten van het terras en het zwembad. De omgeving waarin het ligt is natuurlijk, wat ons erg aanspreekt. Dit vonden ook de dieren die ons tijdens ons verblijf hebben opgezocht (vlakvarks, springbokken, verschillende vogels). Hierdoor leef je in het echte Zuid-Afrika. De service van de caretakers is prima, zij vingen ons op toen wij arriveerden. Al met al is Lituba Place dus een echte aanrader!
Een super ontvangst door Alan. En daarna door het park rijden richting het huis. Echt prachtig. Super leuk gelegen. Heerlijk huis en fijne indeling. Alles zag er netjes uit en bedden prachtig opgemaakt. Elk bed voorzien van klamboe. Lekkere splaspool. En wat is het toch een bijzondere beleving om de dieren in het park gewoon in je tuin tegen te komen of tijdens een wandeling. Gewoon een zebra voeren en de wrattenzwijnen eten gewoon zeer voorzichtig uit je hand. Ons verblijf was kort, maar we hebben ons uitstekend vermaakt. En lekker dichtbij het Kruger Park. En een heerlijke slager gewoon op het park.
Super om te horen dat u een fijne tijd heeft gehad. Daar doen we het voor! Tot de volgende keer;)
Awesome house at a beautiful location
End of November I was with my parents and a friend in the house. The people were very nice and helpful. It is very quiet and peaceful at the house. We spent 4 nights in Lituba Place. It was great! The animals were walking 5 meter in front of the house, the first animals we saw were 4 giraffes in the garden.
There is one very big bedroom including a bathroom. The persons in the other 2 bedrooms need to share a bathroom but there are 2 showers in every bathroom, so this is perfect!
When we arrived the appartment was clean, only the swimmingpool had to be cleaned when we arrived. It's nice to have a swimming pool because most of the time it is very hot there.
The kitchen is very big, so when you love cooking, you can 'braai' your meat at the 'braaiplace' and make a delicious dinner in the kitchen.
In every room is an airco and a fan!
When you arrive you definitely have to book a safari tour in the KrugerPark, the people at the house can inform you wich tour is the best. With a tourguide you see a lot more animals then when driving with you own car through the Kruger Park. From Lituba Place it is only a 10 minute drive to the nearest Kruger Gate.
I would definitely recommend the house to family and friends (I already did).
You organized activities to do with your family for example: The capital of Mozambique (Maputo) or to the Indian Ocean in Mozambique, Swaziland (. Eg for the Swazi tribes), Panorama route drive (God's window & blyderiviercanyon) morning / night safari in Kruger National Park, Tiger fishen, quad biking, motorcycling, Plegrimsrest (old gold mining village which is still intact.) and many outdoor activities!
