We've had an amazing stay at Naara lodge. Benilde and her crew made us feel so very welcome. The location is great and the atmosphere very relaxing. Definitely need a 4x4 to reach this paradise. Benilde thanks again for all your help! May & Maryn

We just went to have a lunch, by then we decide to spend a day and the night. It is gorgeous place to enjoy the nature (light bush, inland waters - lake and beach). You should not go there without your photo or video camera, since there are so many places to record and an amazing sunset to witness.

Great lodge and very well located. Each tent have a stunning view on the beautiful lagoon. The rooms have an elegant design and are very clean. We had a few meals there and enjoyed them very much. The staff is very friendly and our special thanks to the owners and Benilde for their excellent hospitality. Highly recommended.

Great lodge and well located. "Tents" are strategically placed to catch the breeze and wonderful views of the lake. You will get blasted with sunrise if you don't drop the blinds but then you must endure the heat with no draught passing through. Ok the shower pressure was low but so what. Menu was sufficient for our three days stay.... More

The lodge and staff were great, exactly what the website said it would be. The food was unbelievably terrible for the price. We were at Naara Lodge for 5 days and did not get an opportunity to experience the amazing Mozambican prawns, they are still a myth.You definately NEED to bring your own 4x4, it will provide some much needed...

menu very limited and on the expensive side for what is available. Staff not good with english and caused lots of misunderstanding. Inside shower unusable due to lack of water pressure. Garden shower was better to use but caused a problem in rainy weather. No coffee station in room. with booking out, payment made two weeks prior was not updated,... More

After a long drive from the Limpopo Transfrontier park, arriving at Naara was just what we needed. The location is beautiful, the 'tents' well designed and laid out, the Spa was fantastic, lots to keep my 3 children entertained and the eating/bar area well designed and a popular place for us all. A 4x4 is absolutely necessary due to the... More

Beautiful and cleverly designed lodge with a nice local feel and with lots of community involvement. The couple who run the lodge are very friendly and helpful. Tents are amazing where half of the room is actually a solid structure and only the bedroom is tented. So you don't need to worry about camping nightmares! Great position above a tranquil... More

The lodge's web site says you will need a 4x4, and you will. Don't imagine you will manage with a high-clearance two-wheel drive pickup. Don't imagine you will get there in an all-wheel-drive saloon. YOU WILL GET STUCK. There's about 10km of sand road from Chidenguele village and the closer you get to the lodge the more "interesting" it becomes.... More
