This lodge was one of the highlights of our honeymoon last September. It's a beautiful and cozy lodge, perfect for the occasion. The owner was so friendly and very helpful, and even arranged a last minute massage on our way back from the safari. The food was exquisite as well. I'd really recommend this place, weather you're self-driving through Kruger... More

My husband and I stayed at Maqueda Lodge recently on a 16 day whirlwind tour of South Africa. We spent five days at Maqueda lodge and we could not recommend the lodge more highly than excellent. The overall experience was fantastic from the atmosphere of the lodge, the decor, the friendly welcoming & helpful owners and staff to the food... More

Maqueda Logde, located at Marloth park is a 20-25 Km drive from the Kruger National park game reserve. The lodge has been there since the past 18 years with 6 beautiful rooms. The hospitality is commendable and they make you feel like you’re at home (rather your dream home). The owner Francois and his brother run this place with some... More

Great hospitality, great food and a wonderful stay.Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Marloth Park is a great area and the walk from the Lodge to the Lookout was always a great way to see the local wildlife.

We were very fortunate to stay at Maqueda Lodge from the 27 April to the 01 May. From the time we arrived we were made to feel at home. Francois, Chase and Etienne were excellent hosts. The food was to die-for, the rooms were clean and serviced daily. They couldn't do enough for us - everything very personalised and did... More

As a travel agent, I highly recommend a stop at Maqueda Lodge. The service there is superb and much more than expected (quality of meals, kindness of staff) and a great location close to the Kruger Park and Mozambique border. Bravo

This is a well run, conveniently located lodge. friendly staff, great ambience. Communal dining makes for interesting dining. Host is very helpful. Rooms clean although slightly small. Clean, pleasantly furnished. Recommended for a weekend getaway.

Maqueda is a gorgeous outdoor lodge filled with antiques, overstuffed couches and beaded lamps. During the day you will be touring Kruger with their expert guide Kobus Spangenberg -- with whom we saw the BIg Five and even the seriously endangered black rhino (only about 300 in the park). By night you will enjoy candlelight dinners and the small friendly... More

Although I have travelled a lot I have never encountered a place like Maqueda before. It is unique... the lodge is beautiful, Marloth Park is amazing but mostly the owners and staff, they make Maqueda feel like home. They helped me with all my questions before my arrival and during my stay, arranged a great shuttleservice from OR tambo and... More

First off, the owners were out of town the first couple days we visited and there was an obvious spike in staff performance upon return. Be careful though, a few of the rooms don't have A/C, and it get's very, very warm in the rooms. Better lighting would be nice as well. Chase, who filled in, did an amazing job.... More
