Kruger to Drakensberg stopover at Shamrock Arms
Great place for an overnight stop going to or from Kruger. Rooms were great; nice to stay in a place which had retained it's character but offered up to date facilities. Both Jaco and Terry were very warm hosts, made us feel very welcome. Jaco is very entertaining and a good chef.

Warm South African hospitality
Made for a convenient stop over on my way to Kruger. Great hospitality from the moment I arrived, I was made to feel very welcome and included which is always nice as a single traveller. Dinner was lovely and they really took care to cater for my specific dietary requirements (lactose and gluten intolerance)
