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

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
