The space

The most unique thing about Genet House is the affinity we have with wild life and nature. Living here permanently, the animals know we are guaranteed pit-stop for take-aways, and so they come looking for their food every day. The bush babies come for their banana feast every night, along with the Cape Genet (which is where Genet House gets its name).
Double volume thatch ceilings confirm the Africa stamp in your passport.
Wildlife roam freely around the property, day and night.

Guest access

Guest access to the Kruger is a quick 20 minute drive. Guests at Genet House can enjoy the swimming area, boma area, garden, and safari walks along the river, which is 80 meters away, and enjoy continual interaction with all the wildlife.
The ample outdoor thatched patio is where you'll spend most of your time. The animals visit throughout the day, and often stop by for breakfast and dinner! There's a TV lounge with couches for lazing in front of the TV, and a swimming pool for cooling dips on hot summer days. Evenings can be spent around the fire in the boma, watching the bush babies, genets and other night animals. The distant roar of the lion a frequent occurrence.

Interaction with guests

Let us know what you're looking for, and I'm sure we can assist! We can also arrange safari day trips, sunset drives, night drives, etc. into the Kruger Park, which is only a few kilometres away.
We welcome all queries related to your travel arrangements. We are more than happy to help! We do also arrange a special sunset drive into the Kruger Park, followed by a bush braai especially prepared for you in the middle of the veld. You will be accompanied by an armed Game Ranger for your protection. This is one of the most exiting evenings you will ever have in your life! - Please speak to us, we are happy to arrange it!
