Had a wonderful stay, very neat and clean. Good dinners! ( we already knew that: we came for the second time) The lodge is situated in a bushy environment, you cannot look out to see the animals, but they will come to you as a surpise! Very friendly, dedicated host! Even cared for the right transport from Airport to the... More

What a pity not to stay one day more in this fantastic location near the river, it would be really worth. Just a tip: why not an early breakfast (e.g. 5am) for Kruger visitors spending the night in your lodge? Best regards. giorgio

It was a wonderful stay at Maqueda Lodge - especially at night it feels unbelievable! The hole food was very good and delicious. Francois and Etienne give us the warm and nice feeling that we stayed with family/friends. Thank you for your patience and all the best for you and your families.

I spent just one night here in passing, but would highly recommend it. My room was upstairs and the floors a bit creaky, but thankfully no-one below me to disturb. The surroundings are absolutely beautiful and dinner was so nicely laid out. 3 courses and chef comes to explain the dishes. Nice wine, good company and a firepit going -... More

Wow. Impressed as soon as we arrived at this wonderful lodge. Outstanding service, much to see and do and so close to Kruger Parks Cocodile gate. The food served at Maqueda is exquisite and we even received an operatic solo from one of the hosts, Etienne - unbelievable! Thank you Francois and your team at Maqueda. We look forward to... More

Excellent host (Etienne) and the food could not be better. Maqueda Lodge represents excellent value considering that the service and the food are of the very highest standard. It is a great getaway for 2 to 3 days of relaxation. We had our 10-year old with us and made a last minute request for children's food for dinner and amazingly,... More
