"A comfortable stay in a relaxed and private environment. They can definitely improve on the cleanliness, especially kitchen utensils and appliances that were filthy dirty. We also had to wipe down the couches as they were grimy. Besides that it is a lovely place with everything you need."

"We had such a lovely 5 night stay at Walking Tall. Our highlight was definitely all the visitors. As we arrived we were welcomed by a herd of Kudu. Followed by warthogs, zebra, mongoose, lots of birdlife and giraffe in the park. One female kudu even ate from our hands. The accommodation was perfect, well equipped and secluded. Pity about the ongoing traffic noise from the main road. 2 trips into the Kruger had us seeing lion, leopard, elephants, buffalo, wild dog, and so much more."
