My son Stephen and I were lucky enough to spend 6 wonderful days at this great resort from 7th to 12th August this year. The accommodation was excellent and the "Royal" treatment we received from owner Vic, the manager Leanne, our excellent and talented ranger Robert, and the hotel and kitchen bosses Emily and Thuli will be fondly remembered for...

We stayed at the Lodge for 6 days and 5 nights and wished that we could have stayed longer. The room was spacious, very comfortable and clean and the bath was a welcome sight after a full day of being on safari. And if you didn't want a bath, you could always enjoy the private, outdoor shower - always plenty... More

Thank you so much for the wonderful review and so glad all the team made your stay a very pleasant one. Sorry we couldn't serve the warthog. Although they can be quite tasty, we are in a consveration area, so unfortunately, that's off the menu :). However, as you say, they often do a kitchen inspection just to make sure....lol.... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Royal Kruger Lodge. The staff are extremely helpful and aso proactive so once they meet their guests they exactly what each one needs. We had the privilege of going on a game drive with Robert who is a skilled guide and knows the park like the back of his hand? The game viewing... More

We spent 3 nights at the lodge and enjoyed every second. Accommodation was comfortable and clean. The staff were AMAZNG. We loved Robert, our knowledgeable driver-cum-ranger-cum-guide. And Emily and Julia made sure things ran smoothly both in the lodge generally and in the kitchen. Julia's culinary skills are outstanding. All in all, a superb experience! John & Jennifer

I spent 7 fabulous days. You can do as much or as little as you want. They can organise everything. Robert was my guide on all my safaris and he can spot everything. "Eagle eyes" as they call him. All the staff will go out of their way to make your stay comfortable and the food is great, you will... More

Second time in July that I've stopped with Vic and the team within 12 months and loved every minute of it, that I'm even going back again in April next year. Vic is the perfect host, Julia's food is amazing and the team are lovely. The lodge is chilled and restful, which is perfect after long days and exceptional viewing... More

Awesome while you have visitors to talk to but can become very lonely if the resort is not fully booked. Game drives @ R950 p/p is expensive for locals. A two price structure should be implemented 1 for locals and 1 for international visitors.

Thank you for your kind review and glad you enjoyed your stay with us. I agree with you that it could be quite lonely when not fully booked and I assure you, just like all other establishments, we too would really like 100% occupancy all the time. Sadly to say, this is not realistic in the current economic climate. I... More
