We stayed two nights in Maliba lodge and we're blown away by the high standard of service. They give five star services for two or three star pricing. When you stay self catering you hardly expect to be greeted with fresh warm towels, to be asked if you need anything in the afternoon again, for them to accommodate last minute... More

This was our second stay, the first one was at the Mountain Lodge. The River lodge is self catering and much larger. As our children are older now it is not suitable to spend a holiday together as a family in the Mountain Lodge. We knew to expect the stunning surroundings but it was still breathtaking. And on this visit... More

Based on the Maliba Lodge website - this was supposed to be the "cherry on the top" for our group of 8, trip during a 16 day odyssey travelling through South Africa and Lesotho - alas were we disappointed!! We stayed at the self catering 4 bedroom River Lodge, Unit no.1 that is part of the 5 star Maliba Lodge.... More

We had a very good orientation as soon as we arrived and whatever we asked for was arranged for us like the hiking with a guide, and four spa treatments which was booked in the morning of the same day. The rooms were clean and very... More

a group of us spent 4 nights at riverside lodge. Chalets are top class and the heating provided makes for good comfort even when cold outside. The walks and scenery are excellent and in the evenings we ate at the restaurant which is 5 star in every way. Staff are always friendly, accommodating and well trained and in particular our...

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

We stayed with friends in the River Lodge en it was a pleasant stay with a beautiful view on the river . Go on a horse-rite true the beautiful mountains . 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
