We stayed 2 nights and the food was delicious. Wild animals were great. I have been to Kruger during winter before so this is not as big but perfect for summer and no malaria! We had a massage too and the reptile centre was fun. Husband went on a walk and saw springbok very close indeed! Giraffe was so cute!

The Game Lodge is very well managed - from the accomodation, game drive, guides to the food! It was good but not great value for money. The Game Lodge is meant for tourists that would like to experience the Big 5 of Africa but don't have the time to visit the Kruger Park.
