During our 5 night stay the air conditioning in our chalet (Moroccan) was not working and the environment was unbearable and unpleasant with the summer heat and humidity after the rains. The chalet was not very... More

We had a friendly welcome from Joy. The chalet was clean and comfortable. It is a nice and quiet Place with a lot of Animals. Insider tip for the Breakfast (Joy's Omelette). The Marloth Park is the only Park you can walk so close by the wild Animals (Zebra,Giraffe,Gnu,Kudu,Warthog.....) The lookout Point to the Kruger National Park is the best... More

A fantastic place to relax and wind down. Very peaceful atmosphere and everything necessary in the Chalet (Moroccan). Good service and most enjoyable breakfasts. Spa bath a wonderful idea to dip in while braaiing! thank you.

Reception area and accommodation needs a touch up/repairs.Not clear if bed & breakfast included in the price. Not really prepared to provide breakfast.Chalets a bit cramped but nicely decorated. To pay cash not always convenient.

Thanks Pam and Joy for the pleasant stay at the lodge, although we arrived after midnight, Joy was welcoming and her down to earth nature and smile made us feel at home. I would definitely recommend to anyone who wants to get away from the city life. I have no regrets for the long drive from Joburg it was indeed... More

we were not impressed with the service and the chalet. Chalet had a damp smell, bed very uncomfortable. When we arrived had to call as no one was around to open the chalet. Definately won't recommend staying their and won't be staying their again.
