We booked here on the recommendation of a friend who had attended a wedding here. Also a quick hour and a half drive away from Jhb airport. We stayed two nights in two of the Lodge suites. Lovely rooms, great views. Very friendly helpful staff. Good food in general and a wonderful buffet lunch on Sunday. Very reasonably priced as... More

I stayed at Glen Afric with my parents and my partner for four nights at the end of January at the start of a two week touring holiday to South Africa. We chose Glen Afric as it was recommended by friends that had visited and worked as volunteers on one of their international volunteer programmes. We booked two of their... More

I have not stayed here but I have visited three times, once in 2011 and twice recently. On my first visit I had lunch, took a driving tour round the property to see the various animals, walked around the Wild at Heart property [had never heard of the TV show] and interacted with the three elephants. The mother 'Three' has... More

We booked to stay here due to its close location to some friends we were visiting so travel time from pta or jnb wouldn't be an issue. As soon as you arrive if you watched Wild at Heart your memories of the show come flooding back and the set tour you can go on was also interesting. It's a shame... More

Elephant interaction is wonderful. Sunday buffets with elephant feeding is sublime. Great service from friendly staff members. Serene view from the deck. We have visited at least a dozen times, and will continue to do so.

We have been here many times for breakfasts which are a la carte and the Sunday buffets. All the food is prepared by excellent chefs and the staff are very attentive and seem to remember you from previous visits. Over the years, the managements has changed quite a few times and although they are much more business orientated now, there... More

I 100% recommend their volunteer program, my partner and I stayed there for 2 weeks but we could have easily stayed months. Never a boring moment, the property, the animals, the staff were all A++++ we didn't stay at the lodge because we were volunteers but the restaurant and pool etc was beautiful and top notch. We will be returning... More

I stayed for a week recently and also attended a wedding there. I cannot fault the place. Would highly recommend for animal wildlife lovers, couples interested in safari themed wedding (elephants/giraffes. Zebras etc. on your wedding photos). also a good base to visit Sun City and Hartbeespoort Dam. 1hr drive to Sun City and 20mins from Hartbeespoort Dam. British will... More

Very disappointing buffet. Very stodgy. Starters and puddings were average. Better value for money at nearby Amanzingwe and a bit further ....... The amazing Leopard Lodge. Although the surroundings were pretty, we will not be returning .......

We actually went in March 2013 as a 'late' honeymoon and the lodge and staff were outstanding . Everyone made us very welcome . Food was excellent and the animal interaction was superb . We will be planning a revisit for an anniversary.....A great place to stay.
