Staff was oke, rooms were above average and clean. View was awesome. Wifi was 100 rand a person, which is ridiculous, pool was not that clean and there were no curtains in the room. Food was average and buffet was expensive.

The king size beds are awesomely comfortable. The rooms are spacious and very well situated so that your veranda has sun all day long in winter. Only 8 km away from Hluhluwe game reserve. Chalets are maybe a bit close to one another but with friendly neighbours that wasn't a problem for us. It's a pity that a game drive... More

On our first visit we stayed at the Safari Lodges which are very comfortable & spacious & border the reserve. We were greeted by a couple of strolling giraffes & zebra.....cameras... More

We stayed here last week and we definitely had a lovely stay. We felt very welcomed by the team and were treated well. Even the monkeys welcomes us with open arms. Not to everyone's taste of course. The dinner on the Friday wasn't all that great and the breakfast on the Saturday morning was also quite average. However, that evening... More

I have been coming to Ubizane Tree Lodge since I was about 4 and I really cherish my memories from this place. The staff are friendly and helpful, the rooms are very comfortable and luxurious, the food is delicious, and (above all) the setting is spectacular. A must stay for all visiting the Game Reserve. The only negative is that... More

We stayed for 2 nights, I must admit the place was very pleasant, clean and safe, the staff were always helpful and the game ranger was really good, if I had any problems it would be directed towards the cuisine, it could have done with a touch of upgrading. That said, the whole experience was very good and I would... More
