We had a great time during our visit at the Maqueda Lodge. The location is very beautiful. With Francois as a dedicated and wonderful host and Chase as the perfect game driver we'll recommend this lodge to eveyone visiting the Kruger Park. Henk (Netherlands)

Maqueda Lodge is the light at the end of the tunnel in Marloth Park. It's obvious the Owner Francois is living his dream and therefor every little detail from the Deco to the Food speak of this. We were welcomed with open arms & smiles. The rooms are well equipped and the decor tasteful. The food was amazing, from Breakfast... More

I stayed at Maqueda Lodge with my wife during July 2015 for our safari vacation at Kruger. As a bit of context, I was frankly a bit overwhelmed in selecting a lodge since there are so many to choose from and not a lot of great resources out there to help you decide. I reserved Maqueda because it was one... More

We had a delightful stay at Maqueda Lodge. We felt very welcome, like we were at home. The lodge is surprisingly deep in the greenery, and is run with loving care by Francois, who pays attention to the smallest details. He is so kind and attentive, and pampered us with discretion, always making sure everything was perfect. Our room was... More

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
