We were warmly greeted. We had comfortable lodging, great wine and food. Company was fun. Francois the manager made us feel at home. Thank you!!! Nikki Tanzer and Graham humble. August 2015. The lodge sent a driver to revive us at the airport and took us back in the morning. This allowed us to relax and stress free about transfer.

We stayed at Outlook Lodge before and after our safari experience at Kruger Park. We liked it a lot and Francois was nice and kind and helpful. Food was great both for breakfast and dinner. It was winter time, so it was cold, but we were kindly given an electric heater. It is only 15 mins from the airport. We... More

I stayed here for only one night enroute to Zambia. Nice clean, cozy and elegant environment. Rooms are spacious with a Flat Screen TV with cable. Eventhough its a Bed & Breakfast you feel like you are at a hotel but with personalized service. This B&B looks like a huge mansion with a bunch of Rooms. Its quiet and fenced... More

We were both extremely pleased with the beautiful rooms/home and the hospitality extended to us during our visit. Francois was a charming and attentive host. My wife and I were tired when we arrived on separate... More

We stayed at Outlook Lodge one night at the beginning of our holiday and one night at the end of our holiday. Francois was an excellent host and made sure we were comfortable at all times. We enjoyed chatting with him. The building is beautiful and in a safe area. On our first night we had 3 rooms and on... More

Spent two separate nights at the Outlook Lodge in between a Kruger Park Safari. We could not have asked for a better stopover. The rooms are beautiful, dinner & breakfasts were absolutely perfect, but by far the best was the service...both Francois and Karin went above and beyond by offering to launder and tumble dry our dirty clothes from our...

We visited this lodge late April 2015. It was part of a Safari package and we were a group of 10. The common areas were nice, plenty of room to sit and chat, one tiny bathroom, and outside tables and a pool that did not look very inviting. The people who worked there were lovely, very friendly and nice. The... More

We had a great night stay here in preparation for our trip to Kruger the next morning. The rooms were very comfortable and the dinner we had was excellent. Breakfast the next morning was very filling and delicious. Highly recommended!
