We stayed at Maqueda beginning of Sept. '14 just for 2 nights. Francois and his team offer a perfect service. His mother should have more than one Michelin star because her meals are outstanding. The lodge is a beautifule small location and perfect for trips to Krugerpark. If/when we come back to South Africa, Maqueda for sure will be on... More

We could not have been happier with our stay at Maqueda Lodge in Marloth Park. It was quiet and peaceful with well organised game drives into the Kruger. Our host Francois could not have done more for us, from coffee at 5.00am before our game drives to picking us up at 9.30pm after dinner in the Kruger. Nothing was too... More

We stayed as a family of 9 at the Maqueda Lodge. We really enjoyed our time at the lodge - very nice accommodation nearby the Kruger park and we enjoyed very professionaly organized game drives. All the rooms were spotlessly clean and the service was excellent! François was incredibly helpful, courteous and kind - the food was worthy a star... More

Much cheaper than staying in Kruger, but so close to it. Still have plenty of animals roaming through Marloth Park. The food and service are outstanding. Francois and family take very good care of their guests. They organized all the safaris and day trips I did. Brilliant. Totally recommend the Panorama Route as well as Safaris. Swaziland wasn't so great... More

A great place with style, cosy and warm furniture in comfortable rooms and several common areas where to relax and meet other guests, welcoming and professional host and personnel, clean and well maintained, excellent food, a small structure for 10-12 guests, VERY relaxing

My friend and I stayed 5 nights in total at maqueda, this was on of the best experiences of my life. Francois and his family went above and beyond to make our trip very special. All the tours Francois offers are amazing and the guides are great. The three course meal every night and packed breakfast were delicious. I will... More

What an amazing experience. This was the top of our 3 weeks tour of South Africa and one of the reasons to come back again. We stayed for 2 nights which we agreed after the first night that it's way too short!! The welcome, food, rooms, atmosphere, game drives, service... All was top. Thank you Etienne for giving us a...

The highlight of this lodge is the very warm hospitality offered by Francois and his family. Nothing is too much trouble and they try to anticipate your wishes. The food also deserves a special mention. The cooked breakfasts are fine, the packed breakfasts (for early safari starts) are also fine but the four course dinners are something special. An honour...
