We enjoyed our stay thoroughly. The boma dinner was well prepared. Dinner at local restaurant was excellent. Breakfast fantastic. Staff was very friendly & accommodating. Julia, Emily & Robert were fantastic! Only complaint was no Coca-Cola or good red wine available.

When it comes to booking, we had great assistance from the liaison personnel, Vic, who promptly replied us with a very informative email which includes key information that covered methods of travel from airport, time taken, routes to avoid if going by self drive etc. Upon...

Wow what can I say about the Royal Kruger. It is wonderful place to stay while doing safari in Kruger. It exceeded my expectations in every way. The minute we arrived we were made to feel incredibly welcome. The food is outstanding and Julie the cook is an asset to the lodge. Also Robert who took us on a game... More

The whole experience was wonderful, starting with the beautiful people that looked after us, the location, the relaxed atmosphere of the lodge and of course the food! Great safaris. We will certainly return.

We have just spent the best 6 days of our lives at the Royal Kruger Lodge. I can not express how grateful we are to all the staff who made this experience so memorable and who we now call our family.

Thank you so much for your review. Hopefully you will be back again and we can have a few more laughs. Some people moan about no TV's etc. However I agree with you. This all enhances the bush experience and encourages people to interact and share their stories of the days adventures. Hopefully we will see you back again. Best... More

Hi Will and Lauren, Thank you so much for your wonderful review.

When a lodge charge you R3100 per couple per night you expect something Royal. Far from that. We travel frequently all over the world and this was our MOST expensive stay per night ever. In March 2014 we were at a fantastic Ski Resort in Andorra in the Perinese Mountains and we paid R1700 per couple per night. The sundowner... More

I have responded to this review previously and it was published by Trip Advisor. I found the review totally unfair, factually incorrect, biased and bordering on racist. For some reason Trip Advisor subsequently removed my response. Despite numerous emails and phone calls, I cannot get hold of anyone to address my issues. I have asked for my response to be... More

The room was average, there was no bar fridge nor was there a shower. There was a bathtub with a shower handle, but no curtain, so one had to sit on the tub floor to bathe. We had special meal requirements, however this was not enquired from us.

While we always welcome constructive criticism we do expect it to be discussed with us and not wait to air your views in a public forum, especially when you omit relevant details which are essential to a fair review.
