About Rafiki's Resthouse

Free Wifi.Rafiki's Resthouse is very close to the Crocodile river (2 mins walk through our garden) where one can see elephant, hippo, buffalo, rhino and if lucky lion and it is also close to the Crocodile bridge entrance gate at Kruger (12 mins drive).Due to the old trees and the shade, we have an exceptional range of animals visiting daily. If you want to relax in the bush in full privacy, our place is the answer. The spacious double-storey house has four bedrooms (everywhere AC; also ceiling fans in all) and three bathrooms. There is a fully equipped kitchen, two lounges, two terraces outsid

Safari: Watching game in the garden and by the river close by. Go on guided or unguided safaritrips in Marloth park or Kruger. Many guests just watch the wild animals in the garden.

Golf: The golf course in Komatipoort is 12 mins away The one in Malelane 25 mins away.

Family friendly: Children are welcome if they are supervised. Our property has a swimming pool (which can be covered if guests ask) and there are wild animals such as zebra, kudu, monkey visiting the garden. Supervision is necessary at all times.

Romantic: Many couples rent the house just for the two as it us very private.

Covid Safety Approved: The facilities have been disinfected and this will happen after and before every stay. More importantly, the cleaning lady lives close by and has not been away or in contact with any other person since middle of March.
