Yup, I see this jeep jockey parking lot at Afsaal on every trip 0*\

Incidentally, we were there at the same time as that elephant. He walked casually through the parking lot, crossed the H3 and disappeared in a south western direction.
And of course there were some idiots getting really (ie stupidly) close to it.

5 hrs · Kruger’s Afsaal picnic spot


No one drives between Malelane gate and Skukuza in the Kruger National Park without eagerly anticipating a stop at Afsaal, the shady picnic site that allows people to rest and recharge.

But even institutions like Afsaal need to occasionally shake off the dust. Operated by Tindlovu Management Services since October 2016, the popular spot is undergoing an extensive make-over that will make a visit there even more memorable.

Temporary facilities will be available while renovations are under way.

Work is being done in three phases. First up is the creation of Tindlovu Express which will offer freshly-prepared, delectable eats-on-the-go, like pies and sandwiches. And to wash your light meal down? An expertly brewed cup of coffee, of course!

Tindlovu’s Jo-Anne White promises an unbeatable coffee experience when Tindlovu Express opens to the public in the middle of December 2018.
The curio shop will also be given a fresh look and be stocked with some unique new items.

The second phase includes the construction of a restaurant, children’s play area and, in keeping with the surroundings, an awesome tree house. This phase should be completed early in 2019.

Last up are the things dreams are made of: a spa offering the full range of treatments – think how relaxed you will feel after being pampered in an environment that in itself is balm for the soul, an overnight hide and the introduction of guided walks. Phase three should be completed in the latter part of 2019.

When the last tool is packed away, Afsaal will have the look and feel of a timeless African lodge, modelled on Tindlovu’s latest restaurant which has become a firm favourite in Nelspruit since recently opening at i’langa Mall.
The I’langa restaurant will serve not only as the prototype for Afsaal, but also for all other Tindlovu restaurants in the Kruger, at Punda Maria, Shingwedzi, Mopani, Letaba, Olifants, Satara and Berg en Dal. Work at these restaurants will get under way next year.

“Tindlovu i’langa is the yardstick by which we will measure all our restaurants in terms of look and feel, customer service, excellence in food as well as value for money,” says Jo-Anne.

All Tindlovu menus will be reworked, and patrons can look forward to new and exciting offerings.

RIDICULOUS (0!) (0!) O/ O/ @#$ @#$ @#$ Just call it Gold Reef City and be done with it ..I see there is no mention of a Casino ..I am worried about the Take away Menu (Read Trash along the roads like that Pizza Joint at Satara does to the H7 )..Warning to Tindlovu ...LEAVE Punda Maria and Shingwedzi alone ..This does NOT belong there ..Sense of Place BOET Look at all that UNNECESSARY bush clearing ..more Brick and paving of the South
