The nicest place I stayed at in Kruger was the Rentmeester Guest House at Shingwedzi. .
My parents agree with you on this
….they have just completed a “dream trip” to Kruger where they stayed in the Stanley in Satara, Nshawu in Olifants and Rentmeester in Shingwedzi …according to them the Rentmeester guesthouse outdid the others by far….apart from the location and the great sighting from your doorstep, the interior of the house is great…even have king-size beds. The only thing that bugged them is that there is no fencing around the house (as with the other guest houses) and they had a couple of people who wandered in to walk and sit along the fence.
Based on their assessment I have now also altered a reservation we have for Jan 2010 (special/sad trip…I’m turning 40
and decided that a luxury tour in Kruger will be more relaxing, and cheaper, than the overseas trip that my SO planned
)….I have cancelled the reservation we had for the Stanley and now booked the Rentmeester. I have also lessened the time we would have stayed at Nshawu because it appears this house is no longer maintained
….in February I lodged a official complained about this and the response was that they will give attention to all the issues, including the roof that is falling apart…with my parent’s visit now, they found everything to be the same and actually worse. It is really sad that this great asset of Kruger is going down the drain due to poor management.
Muhammad, thank you for the photos of Keartland
…apart from your photos there is not much else about this house on the SANParks site…not even their official accommodation page have photos of this house.
I have also booked a few nights here and hope we will not be disappointed…although, with that location, I think we will love it.
