Very nice place to relax and a pool to cool off after a long drive.

Perfect view of the river from your stoep was excellent.

Alhoewel ons geen olifante gesien het nie was dit elke sent werd. Die eienaar is baie vriendelik en maak 'n punt daarvan om seker te maak dat 'n mens tuis voel.

ElephantQwalk Retreat se ligging is die sterk voordeel en die terrein is netjies.

Eenheid 6 is skoon en netjies, goeie ligging, maar ongerieflik vir 'n langer verblyf vanwee die uitleg. Ons was 4 nagte daar. Gerieflike stoep en braaiarea. Die alleenstaande buitekombuis is egter verwaarloos. Geen warm water vir opwasbak, geen gas vir stoof en swak buitebeligting en dit skep 'n indruk van verval.

Translate to English.

ElephantQwalk Retreat's location is its strong advantage and the grounds are neat.

Unit 6 is clean and tidy, good location, but inconvenient for a longer stay due to the layout. We were there for 4 nights. Comfortable porch and braai area. However, the stand-alone outdoor kitchen has been neglected. No hot water for sink, no gas for stove and poor outdoor lighting and it creates an impression of decay.

Hi Coert,

I read your review and am very pleased you brought one or two items you found wrong to my attention.

The stove I tested and found in perfect working order. You probably just turned on the knob on a plate and pushed the ignitor. When you turn on the gas by turning the knob you need to push in the knob as well to release gas and while holding it pressed in push the ignitor. Once the flame is on you can release the knob again and then use the same knob to regulate the desired flame size.
The gas geyser failed due to the ignitor backup batteries that were flat and needed to be replaced.

I am sorry for any inconvenience, the normal procedure is to go to our reception and bring any issues to their attention for immediate remedy of your problem.

Thank you again for supporting Elephant Walk Retreat. We hope to be hosting you again in the near future.

Weekend break away to relax.

The lodge is conveniently situated adjacent the Crocodile Bridge entrance to the Kruger Park, that makes a big difference. the view over the river into the park are also a bonus. The accommodation was neat and tidy, the ambience leads to feeling park of the bushveld with the wooden and thatched structure. The kitchenette is situated on the veranda portion of the accommodation. The only negative we experienced was the crack in the shower floor and the cleanliness of the shower floor. That can become a health hazard. Antonie welcomed us and explained the "in's and out" of the venue. All in all we had a good time there, it's very tranquil and conducive to our goal.

Ná Kruger Park Lodge, wat minder gekos het, was hierdie plek ietwat van 'n teleurstelling.

Positief: Fantastiese ligging! Alhoewel ons geen Big 5 daar gesien het nie. Ek is mal oor houthuise. Die kombuis- en badkamergeriewe was heel skaflik. Ek het gehou van die dubbelwasbakke in die badkamer. Ons beddens was baie gerieflik. Negatief: Die gebou wieg effens selfs as net een persoon in die nag opstaan en toilet toe gaan. Ons was 2 pare vriendinne en ons het gedink daar is 2 kamers met 2 ordentlike groot beddens in. Daar was 2 kamers maar die een kamer het 'n bunk bed ingehad wat so styf ingepas het in die kamer dat mens ongemaklik gevoel het om 2 mense daar te laat slaap. So 3 van ons moes toe die groot kamer deel met die badkamergeriewe in. Die stort lyk of daar muf in die hoeke sit. Daar was 'n spinnekop en 'n vismot in my bed.

Translate to English.

After Kruger Park Lodge, which cost less, this place was somewhat of a disappointment.

Positive: Great location! Although we didn't see any Big 5 there. I love log houses. The kitchen and bathroom facilities were very decent. I liked the double sinks in the bathroom. Our beds were very comfortable. Negative: The building sways slightly even if only one person gets up and goes to the toilet at night. We were 2 pairs of girlfriends and we thought there were 2 rooms with 2 decent sized beds in them. There were 2 rooms but one room had a bunk bed that fit so tightly in the room that you felt uncomfortable letting 2 people sleep there. About 3 of us then had to share the large room with the bathroom facilities in it. The shower looks like there is mold in the corners. There was a spider and a fish moth in my bed.

Dit was aangenaam, maar sekere fasiliteite kort herstel en opgradering. Ek sal voorwaardelik aanbeveel.

Die twee basiese eenhede (no 6 en 7) kort dringend aandag. Termiete het die hout binne beskadig, lighulse is stukkend, 'n muurprop werk glad nie. Die toiletsitplek was regtig om die goedkoopste denkbaar te kry, en word aan sy onderkant nie behoorlik skoongemaak nie. Met die termiete weet ek nie wat is die toekoms van die log cabins gaan wees nie. En eenhede 1 en 2 is die beste, met TV en al, as jy bereid is om R3100 pd te betaal. Ligging bykans teenaan Krokodilbrughek is baie goed. Maar as ek kies, kies ek die buurman se plek. Teen omtrent dieselfde prys, baie beter in stand gehou, met aandete, bed en ontbyt (en kampvuur).

Translate to English.

It was pleasant, but some facilities need repair and upgrading. I would conditionally recommend.

The two basic units (no 6 and 7) need urgent attention. Termites have damaged the wood inside, light sockets are broken, a wall plug doesn't work at all. The toilet seat was really to get the cheapest imaginable, and is not properly cleaned at its bottom. With the termites, I don't know what the future of the log cabins will be. And units 1 and 2 are the best, with TV and all, if you are willing to pay R3100pd. Location almost opposite Crocodile Bridge Gate is very good. But if I choose, I choose the neighbor's place. At about the same price, much better maintained, with dinner, bed and breakfast (and campfire).

The convenience of the location right outside the Kruger Crocodile Bridge Gate, combined with a super helpful and friendly staff, made this a great choice.

The communication from staff in the months leading up to our trip was a precursor to the excellent service we received upon arrival. No question was too big or small to receive serious consideration. The cleaners help went out of their way to freshen and clean up. More than I expected from a self-catering rental.

Relaxing.

We stayed in the Budget Accommodation Bungalow. The room was clean and spacious. The air-conditioner worked well in the heatwave conditions! Monkeys are a big problem, but we were warned when we checked in that they would be. Staff were all friendly. The kitchen facilities could do with an upgrade but are adequate. Fridge and kettle with coffee and tea are in the room. Pool is stunning set away from the accommodation where families can relax and make noise. We had inconsiderate neighbours who played their music too loud but they were quieted down by the staff. All in all a relaxing and mostly peaceful two nights. Went into Komatipoort for dinner and got back onto the property with no problems. Would definitely go there again.

Rustig, naby natuur maar lodge kort aandag.

Lugversorger in hoofkamer het nie gewerk nie en dit was baie warm. Ons het gerapporteer dat daar nie 'n kontrole was vir lugversorger nie. Ons het ook aan personeel gerapporteer dat lugversorger nie werk nie. niemand het een keer die naweek kom ondersoek instel of kom seker maak dat als in orde was nie. Kombuis was glad nie skoon nie. Kamers was skoon, maar die reuk van riool was opmerklik. Die dame aan diens het ons Sondagaand na 'n ander eenheid toe geskuif met 'n lugversorger. Dankie daarvoor. Pragtige uitsig en lekker rustig. Die oord self word nie onderhou wat tuin en netheid betref nie.

Quiet, close to nature but lodge needs attention.

Air conditioner in main room was not working and it was very hot. We reported that there was no check for air conditioner. We also reported to staff that air conditioner was not working. no one came to investigate once on the weekend or come to make sure that everything was in order. Kitchen was not clean at all. Rooms were clean, but the smell of sewage was noticeable. The lady on duty moved us to another unit with an air conditioner on Sunday night. Thanks for that. Beautiful view and nice and quiet. The resort itself is not maintained in terms of garden and cleanliness.

Die plek het alles wat jy nodig het in n' selfsorg-eenheid. Alles is netjies en ruim. Die ligging is perfek vir die wat nie in die wildtuin kan bly nie maar nog steeds vroeg by die hekke wil ingaan. Al die kamers het air-cons wat natuurlik 'n groot pluspunt is! Ons was baie tevrede met die plek.

Net een nag oorgeslaap, maar onderhoud kort aandag.

Hulle pryse het die laaste jaar met 20% toegeneem! Onderhoud nie op standaard nie, deurslot stukkend, hout afskorting om badkamerdeel deur termiete gevreet, buitelig werk nie. Net een stoel in chalet.

Spent only one night, some maintenance needed.

Their rates increased by 20% over the last year! Maintenance not up to standard - the door lock broken, wooden screen for bathroom eaten by termites, outside light not working. Only one chair in the chalet.

Heerlik.

Ons het vreeslik lekker gekuier. Was net buite die hek van die Wildtuin wat vir ons ideaal was. Ek sal net voorstel dat die braaie so bietjie aandag geniet aangesien die bodems al bietjie deurgebrand is. Verder was dit eenvoudig stunning!

Delicious.

We had a great time. Was just outside the gate of the Wildlife Park which was ideal for us. I would only suggest that the barbecues get a little attention as the bottoms are already a bit burnt. Other than that it was simply stunning!

Baie gerieflig geleë vir besoek aan die Nasionale Krugerwildltuin.

As jy 'n bestemming soek so na as moontlk aan die Krugerwildtuin sal jy moeilik een vind wat beter geleë is as Elephant Walk Retreat by die Krokodilbrug-ingang na die wildtuin. Ons eenheid was redelik netjies en gerieflik en mens kan op die stoep sit en uitkyk oor die Krugerwildtuin net oorkant die rivier. Dit is 'n selfsorgeenheid, maar nie toegerus met 'n eie kombuis nie. Daar is 'n buitekombuis wat ons moes deel met die aanliggende eenheid. Die kombuis was basies toegerus, maar was heel voldoende. My enigste kritiek was die braaigeriewe by ons chalet. Die braaier by ons eenheid was swak ontwerp en in 'n haglike toestand. Ek moes my gereedskapstel uit my voertuig gaan haal om met tang en skroewedraaier die rooster oor die halwe drom oop te forseer, en kon slegs in een hoekie vuurmaak omrede die bodem deurgeroes was. Die hoogte kan nie verstel nie en in die diep drom het dit 'n ewigheid geneem om my stukkie wors te braai. Nee wat, ons Suid-Afrikaners is mense wat braai. Die feitlik onbruikbare braaier is werklik onverskoonbaar.

Very conveniently located for visiting the Kruger National Park.

If you are looking for a destination as close to the Kruger National Park, you will be hard pressed to find one better located than Elephant Walk Retreat at the Crocodile Bridge entrance to the park. Our unit was quite tidy and comfortable and you can sit on the veranda and look out over the Kruger National Park just across the river. It is a self-catering unit, but not equipped with its own kitchen. There is an outdoor kitchen that we had to share with the adjoining unit. The kitchen was basically equipped, but was quite adequate. My only criticism was the braai facilities at our chalet. The braai at our unit was poorly designed and in terrible condition. I had to get my tool kit out of my vehicle to use pliers and a screwdriver to force open the grate over half the drum, and could only fire in one corner because the bottom was rusted through. The height is not adjustable and in the deep drum it took forever to fry my piece of sausage. No, we South Africans are barbecue people. The virtually useless braai is truly inexcusable.

Very good location.

We were unable to get accommodation in Kruger so booked at Elephant Walk. It was our first stay here and it was really enjoyable. The log cabin was extremely comfortable with beautiful views over the river. It was great to watch the sunrises and sunsets over Kruger from the verandah. The access into Kruger daily was so easy. Elephant Walk is literally a 1 minute drive from Crocodile Bridge Gate.

Ons het tuis gevoel van die oomblik wat ons arriveer het. Mike was so vriendelik en hulpvaardig. Verblyf was onvergeetlik en ons sal hulle ten sterkste aanbeveel. Enigste voorstel wat ek sal maak is dat hulle moet aandui dat die eenheid nie 'n volledige badkamer het nie. Sal beslis weer gaan kuier. Baie dankie aan Coenraad van LekkeSlaap vir sy vriendelike, flink diens.

Puik!

Sal beslis weer hier kom bly. Ligging is ideaal, die lugversorging in die huis was heerlik koel in die somerhitte en die swembad is 'n absolute pluspunt en skitterend blou en netjies. Die uitsig van die voorstoep af is ook fantasties. Ons het feitlik daagliks olifante sommer hier op jou voorstoep gehad. Sal die plek beslis aanbeveel. Omdat dit so naby die Krokodil Hek geleë is, kan mens vinnig deur die dag na die wildtuin ry, weer kom afkoel en dan 'n uur of wat later weer in die wildtuin gaan vir 'n "sunset trip".

Will definitely stay here again. Location is ideal, the air conditioning in the house was wonderfully cool in the summer heat and the swimming pool is an absolute plus and sparkling blue and neat. The view from the front porch is also fantastic. We had elephants right here on your doorstep almost every day. Would definitely recommend the place. Because it is located so close to the Crocodile Gate, one can quickly drive to the wildlife park during the day, come back to cool off and then go back into the wildlife park an hour or so later for a "sunset trip".

Netjiese, skoon akkommodasie, met die beste ligging!

Elephant Walk Retreat het seker die beste ligging wat grens aan die KNP. Die olifante het elke dag teen die heining gewei en ander diere was ook sigbaar oorkant die Krokodilrivier, bv. kameelperde. Die eenhede is baie skoon en netjies. Dit is hoogs aanbeveelbaar!

Lovely view

Elephant walk retreat is situated in a beautiful and tranquil location 5m outside the Crocodile Bridge Gate. I would recommend this stay if majority of your time is spent in the park. The kitchen is situated outdoors which makes it impossible to prepare dinner at night without insects flying in your food. However it is the wild. The rooms are small and there is no privacy in terms of bathroom facilities. I saw plenty of animals from the leisurely position of the cabin. Good stay.

Absoluut fantastiese verblyf.

Dit is absoluut wonderlik om hier te oornag. Die olifante loop reg voor jou huisie verby en die nagstilte is wonderlik. Kan dit regtig aanbeveel.

Absolutely fantastic stay.

It is absolutely wonderful to spend the night here. The elephants walk right in front of your house and the night silence is wonderful. Can really recommend it.

Ongelooflik!

Pragtige goed versorgde eenhede, vriendelike personeel, baie rustige omgewing. Onbeskryflike natuur tonele gesien en olifante wat 100m van jou af loop as jy in die aande braai. Was awesome. Baie dankie. Beveel ten sterkste vir enige een aan.

Unbelievable!

Beautiful well maintained units, friendly staff, very peaceful surroundings. Indescribable nature scenes seen and elephants that walk 100m from you when you barbecue in the evenings. Was awesome. Thank you very much. Highly recommend for any one.

Well Located

Nice place located at a right spot. I enjoyed the sound of birds and hippos during the night.

Enjoyed the stay - awesome hosts

I stayed in the more basic of the units which shared a bush kitchen with another unit. Although there were utensils provided I did buy my own as the kitchen was not in the best of states. The accommodation was more than adequate and being able to see game right on your front doorstep was definitely a treat. I did make my booking at the last minute and was advised by the hosts that the accommodation and kitchen were basic. Mike and Stephanie were also very accommodating hosts who were more than willing to go the extra mile. My kids had an amazing time! We got the opportunity to speak to some guests staying in the luxury units and they raved about the facilities in those cabins. I will definitely make a plan to go back in the near future.

We enjoyed our stay. We will visit again.

The room was nice and clean and the bed was very comfortable. Around the outside (the kitchen and the carpark) it was a bit muddy and we trampled it inside but had no broom to clean it ourselves. We would have also like more relaxing chairs. Otherwise, lovely. Thank you for everything.

Fine

Very conveniently located, some interesting birds visit the gardens. Friendly owners, peaceful and quiet. Was a bit disappointed with the unit allocated, but otherwise everything was fine.
