We stayed for 3 nights and could have easily stayed another two. Thys and Alice were warm hosts and Thys's stories about his travels best ever around a campfire in their very own bushman cave (San bushman paintings too). The lodge itself is super comfortable and really secluded, plenty of attention to detail, you can see they are a well... More

We booked our trip in advance, a family of 8 that decided to book the Bush Cottage for our 4 night stay. Firstly you need to know that from the main tar road, you will have a 2 hour drive (from Uniondale) on Gravel Road. STRONGLY recommend a bakkie or 4x4 vehicle for this, since a Sedan will take a...

Very unusual place. Feels like you're going back in time to an unspoilt part of the world. The views will take your breath away. Hosts were unstinting in their hospitality and friendliness. Could not have done more for us. Food delicious. Make sure you take a 4x4 with good clearance and travel through the reserve, 4 to 5 hours on... More

This was the most delightful experience! Everything was perfect - the location, the chalet, the lodge, the food and most of all the people. The setting is really beautiful, the chalets are private with great views and very comfortable. All excursions - including hikes and drives into the Wilderness area are included the rate. Thys, Alice, Anneke, Pieter and Kiewiet... More

It is a nature paradise with great hospitality. It was a perfect stay and a outstandig accommodation. We also got a game drive and a amazing guidet valley hike. The meals were excellent and the service perfect.

Quite expensive, but nonetheless very good value for money. This is a lodge for the discerning traveller/nature lover who values quality, don't mind luxury and loves to be spoiled. Here you may have your cake and eat it: stunning scenery, great wilderness hikes, amazing natural diversity as well as first class service and hospitality and fine dining and excellent wines

Beautiful surroundings and excellent service make this a wonderful destination. It's a long trip to get here, but worth it ...! Consider hiring a 4x4 for the journey, as none of the roads are surfaced. This applies to the entrance to Bavianskloof that you are supposed to be able to get to without 4x4. Imperative for the way in from... More

Wonderful stay. Top class accomodation and service. However att needs to be given to the aircon. It needs to be switched on long before the guests arrive on a hot day. This wasn't done so we had an unpleasantly hot afternoon and evening.

Dear Barry. Thank you for your review of Sederkloof Lodge, and for helping us improve our service. Sorry that you had an uncomfortable time in your chalet in the extreme heat we experienced (42 degrees!). As a rule, we do not switch on the fans prior to guests' arrival to save electricity, as we never know when our guests will... More
