We had the opportunity to holiday at the River Lodge 1 for two nights. Although the rain messed up our holiday we had a 'splashing' time. We hiked into the mountains and swam in the cold river. The accommodation is excellent and delivers on what it promises in the brochures. I will definitely go back and yes we already planned... More

It really is in the middle of nowhere so be sure that you bring wine and food if you don't want to have your meals in the Mountain lodge.... More

We had a lovely holiday here over the December period. My husband and I visited the main lodge a few years ago, but decided to return with family for a self-catering holiday. The good points: The view is amazing and visible from most rooms in the house. The sound of the river is loud and makes you feel like you... More

From the moment we arrived at Maliba Lodge we knew this was something very special. From the friendliness and attentiveness of all the staff , to the most exquisite food, the beautiful hotel and the majestic scenery, it made for a memorable experience. We stayed in one of the riverside huts which offer good value but more basic accommodation. There... More

Surrounded by mother nature, comfortable accommodations (we stayed in the River Lodge with two young children), friendly staff, and delicious meals. Horseback riding with the children on the flat trail along the river was great. We didn't want to leave!

We had plan to stay here two days. Because of rain, the rivers were unpassable, the path to the hotel a stream. We had to drive to the hotel to eat. Except from that we had a very nice stay. We spent the whole morning up in the hotel, and then drowe on.

Oh what a stunning place to rest and enjoy nature at it's basic. The trees, the running river just outside my window and comfortable indoors. The kitchen is fully kitted out so you can just about cook anything plus a barbeque stand outside, just bring your charcoal. Beds are comfortable with electric blankets. Perfect for family. Must go back!

We had a wonderful weekend in the mountain kingdom. The mountain views from the lodge are breathtaking. We also loved the view of the river running next to the lodge.The accommodation was just perfect for us with our young children. Our visit to Katse Dam was memorable, we enjoyed spectacular views. Overall we had an awesome weekend at Maliba Lodge.

What a place! My family and I enjoyed every moment of being in this tranquil and scenic environment. From the moment we arrived we were at peace with nature. We received a warm welcome from the friendly staff. The view from every corner of the establishment is to die for. Our chalet was clean, spacious and fully furnished to our... More
