      what is in the website is not what you see or get. amount you pay should be far less compared to the place. in future what you put on web please make sure the client do get,,no wifi,TV in room,,fridge,commune kitchen like boarding school. not recommended for more than 1 night (stop over) money i paid could not get refund instead was asked to pay more and the commission that you have taken from them in order for us to checkout after a night. no shops for breakfast as they cant prepare for their clients and charge them no no!!

      This was a perfect start to our three-week trip through South Africa. We were very warmly welcomed, had a nice dinner and interesting conversation with the hosts, including some tips for our trip.The rooms, pool and location are all nice. We would definitely recommend Boven Trout Lodge as a good stopover on the way to Kruger.
