I absolutely loved my 4 night stay at Rafiki, Maria is an such a welcoming host and fabulous cook.

The accommodation, rooms and setting are stunning, and nothing beats the African sunset each night with a drink 😊

Thank you Rafiki for a beautiful stay.

Maria was an excellent hostess. Informative and helpful. The room was clean and spacious with an air con. Lovely meal and Maria was accommodating of dietary needs. We had to leave very early so Maria packed a breakfast for us and also gave us a lift to town. Our only criticism was the sandwich - no butter on the bread and it was not cut and had meat on for a vegetarian.

Nothing to complain about. Awesome host with lots of tips for activities and excellent food for dinner and breakfast. Interior was super stylish and we had an awesome time! Keep in mind though that Kruger is about an one hour away but there are private reserves which are totally work visiting - even for the big five and especially for bush walks!
