“Criestina is an amazing host and the accommodation more than exceeded our expectations…Awesome braai area and great for groups looking for a quiet place to connect and enjoy the serenity of the bush!”
Presque tout : l’accueil de la propriétaire et sa disponibilité, la gentillesse du personnel, la décoration et le confort du logement, la terrasse, le parking sécurisé, le coin piscine, billard, jeux de fléchettes, la climatisation efficace, l’environnement sauvage du bush autour de la maison, le calme, l’équipement….
I liked Everything, there was nothing not to like. When we arrived, Lincoln, knew who we were, where we were booked, introduced himself, helped us unpack, a fabulous guy. Champagne was on ice, chocolates in the room, air-conditioning on, A for Away! The owner welcomed us and introduced herself, asked if we need anything, told us about the pool area and the Boma to make a fire
Super clean. Excellent facilities. VERY comfortable bed. So many little extras makes the experience really exceptional. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Beautiful african bushveld venue. Enjoyed our stay tremendously. The host knows how to make her clients feel like royalty. Thanks Route 40.
Bonne surprise , nous avons été « surclassés » , Kristina nous a fait bénéficier d’un magnifique lodge dans la réserve privée proche de Hoedspruit;
Magnifique soirée, patio en pleine brousse, grande flambée en prime. Puis balade au petit matin , lever de soleil et éveil de la nature
All were very well. Spotless Great Accommodation.

Fantastic place to stay, lovely chalets that were well equipped. Friendly host and on site staff. Great location, close to town but based in nature so nice and quiet. Swimming pool and pool table area looked great – will have to go back for a longer stay to check them out!

The owner Cristiena is amazing and wonderful!!!!! She picked us up at the airport and then took us in to town to buy big sun hats. Then before dinner drove us around the nature preserve where we saw many African big game animals. After a mini Safari she took us to dinner at the thirsty Giraffe. The place is excellent and a pet Donkey visits the restaurant during dinner.
When we left for our Safari camp to the south she loaned us some books and binoculars . She met us at the airport when we returned for our flight to cape town and had a drink with us, we tried to buy but she wouldn’t let us!
The cabins are just excellent, clean, modern , in the bush, well located and a great value- Route 40 gets 11 stars!!!!!!

Fantastique. Idéal de s’y retrouver en famille avec notre fils émerveillé par les lieux. Nous sommes accueillis par les phacochères et les mangoustes et l’impression d’être un peu seuls au milieu de la savane. Merci à notre hôte pour son accueil chaleureux, dommage que notre niveau d’anglais soit si mauvais. On ne voulait plus partir.- La météo!!!

“What a awesome experience we had!!! Route 40 is not only home away from home but much more. The relaxed atmosphere, very clean and neat self catering accommodation that we booked for our weekend away is highly recommended. Cristiena Kruger assisted us in organizing a Kruger National Park trip trough Tambuzi Safaris and surprised us with a traditional braai on our arrival back. Route 40 and their staff were amazing. Thank you, we will be back!!!”
“Can’t get enough of Route 40 self catering accommodation. The tranquility of the bush with birds singing while relaxing on the veranda was my highlight in the mornings. Route 40 is highly recommended for a get a way. I had the privilege to go on a scenic flight over the Hoedspruit area that was arranged by Cristiena Kruger. She were very helpfull with all arrangements from booking date till departure. Thank you to all Route 40 staff.”
” Great stay we had in a super nice decorated, clean cottage. In the evenings we sat on the veranda and it felt like we owned our own little peace of the Lowveld, the impala grazing in front of the cottage. The distance from town is just right. It feels like you are deep in the bush yet but have all the luxuries of town probably less than ten minutes away. I will definitely be back when the new pool is done. Thank Christina for making my trip to the Lowveld even more perfect.”
2 Weeks ago I enquired about accommodation in and around Hoedspruit. We ended up booking at ROUTE 40. What amazing accommodation. The staff were so friendly, the chalets neat, clean and accommodating, surrounded by the bush and calls of the wild. I would highly recommend Route 40 to anyone looking for accommodation around Hoedspruit. Thank you Cristiena, Victor and Lincoln for your hospitality We will see you again soon!
“It was just wonderful, thank you very much for the great time we had”
“Had an amazing time with you guys, I will like to someday retire here”

“Everything was amazing and your advice was really great. We really enjoyed. And we were happy for the book, maps and binoculars which we left there for you. Thank you again it was amazing. And thanks to Cristiena and Victor for all their help and advice, they were fantastic.”
What an awesome place. Well equipped. Well laid out. The house is absolutely stunning and the staff are exceptionally helpful and friendly. This place is highly recommended and we will indeed return. A special thanks to Cristiena for helping us out with last minute plans.
“We took your advice about the Kruger, followed the routes and saw amazing things, also birds. And Moholoholo was brilliant as it was close by and easy to get to. We were always busy but when we could we sat outside and looked at the mountains. We will definitely come back if we can.”
Exceptionally comfortable, clean, beautifully decorated chalets which are well equipped. Very peaceful bush setting. Friendly, welcoming staff who are willing to help with anything. An ideal stopover, especially for those on their way to KNP or Moz – plenty of space for caravans and trailers. Also conveniently close to town PLUS very close to a great restaurant- the Thirsty Giraffe!
“Excellent Route 40. Perfect rooms in a great location! I could not fault this place – warm smiling staff (thx Victor & Lincoln) creative design, sweet smell of bushveld grass and perfect lowveld setting. Overall experience were great! Thx to the owner Cristiena Kruger! Small personal touches like beautiful, colorful paintings, best aromatic coffee, scrumptuous rusks etc are unsurpassedThe beds are amazing and the rooms are the most comfortable yet. Can’t wait for the pool and lapa area to be finished. Will definitely return and would recommend to anyone wanting a special treat in Hoedspruit”
