Enjoyed enjoyable 2 night stay as part of extended Tour to SA. Pleasant location & enjoyable game drives. Tree Lodge Room was OK - nice size with comfortable bed, plus large bathroom was rather tired though & in need of refurbishment. Friendly service. Good, homely food of nice quality and choice.

Stayed 1 night with my husband as part of a group of friends. We self-catered. Stayed in safari lodge chalet 15. Patio looks on to the back of other rooms up to the car park. We received a welcoming drink at reception from friendly courteous staff and then drove less than a km to where the safari chalets are situated.... More

A fantastic3 days- waking to giraffe and nyala right outside the rondavel. Excellent game drives- seeing 4 of the Big 5 within an hour of entering Hluhuwe! Understated service, and a little unsure of how to deal with international guests - but the smiles that greet you, the "good morning, how are you?" Every morning from everybody is genuine. It's...

This was a nice place to stay. The little cabins (I think that they are called rovelas) were clean and comfortable. They had lots of windows and it was fun to watch a big lightening storm as we went to sleep. However, the highlight of this place is the wildlife. I sat on the patio for a few minutes and... More

What a lovely welcome we got on arrival. Drinks and refreshing towels. We stayed for two nights in a Safari Lodge, which was very comfortable, spacious and clean, would have been suitable for two adults and two children. Woke up to Nyala strolling past the lodge. Stunning views, and felt very safe. Had a Braai one night by the lodge,... More

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
