We only stayed for one night and can just confirm what others have described before. – very friendly and knowledgeable hosts, welcoming staff, perfect location close to the entrance of Kruger Park and a well maintained garden. The bed / sleep quality was fantastic and the rooms have everything you need for your stay. Our rating would have been in...

Dear Guest. Thanks a lot for your nice comment. The hot water problem was a once off problem due to the heavy winds on that day and thats why the geyser flame went off. The doors will be replaced in the next months tu fully lenghts doors.

Stayed here two years ago as solo traveler and just had to come back this time around. First time in beautiful weather, this time in torrential downpours - but weather doesn't matter here: it's still a great little spot! Rooms are not just rooms, they have their own separate identity. Meals are not just meals, they are delicious creations of...

We only stayed there one night but it was one of our favorite stops on our vacation in Africa. Such a cute, quaint little place and Daniela was so friendly and helpful. Great location as well as it is very close to the gates to Kruger National Park.

There was no breakfast. The manager said she will organise for us to have breakfast at 6am but there was nothing the next day at 6am and nobody around, the reception was locked and nobody inside. I tried to walk around the back of the building to find staff and I repeatedly shouted to see if anyone was there but...

I'd recommend Kaia Tani for anyone looking to visit this part of South Africa. We arrived in South Africa as the last leg of our short African adventure and were, a bit, apprehensive of what we would experience. Any concerns were eliminated on arrival. The guest house is fantastic. It's small and personal. The rooms were to the highest standard...

The Kaia Tani is a very nice lodge directly in Phalaborwa only 5 minutes away from the gates to the Krüger National Park. This lodge is a very good alternative to the much more expensive private lodges in the park, while for most activities it is not a problem not to sleep in the park directly. Such activities like night...
