Would recommend the African Spirit Game Lodge to anyone wanting a first class place to stay. Great safari's during the week. We saw four of the Big 5 almost every day. The four lions at the end of the last day was the way to end a great week!!

Since they accommodate only small numbers at a time, we were well pampered. They were very helpful with our travel plans from beginning to end. Madelyn did a wonderful job of cooking local foods. The chalet was roomy, cool and cozy. Our guideswere personable and knowledgeable.

My husband and I spent a week at the African Spirit Game Lodge and enjoyed every minute of it. The accommodations are excellent and the food is even better! The staff made us feel right at home and we have already booked a return trip.

We had a truly wonderful stay at African Spirit Game Lodge. The location is perfect for exploring this part of SA. The Zululand Rhino Reserve is fantastic for wildlife viewing. The lodge is very comfortable with well appointed suites. The food is very good. The staff is excellent. Our guide, Mike, was incredibly knowledgable and fun. We would definitely return... More

Our safari experience was awesome - from the professional guide who delivered outstanding game viewing to the friendly and quick responsiveness of the management staff at the lodge. This experience exceeded our expectations. Well Done!

We stayed for 2 nights in the self-catering accommodation. The rooms were clean, generously-proportioned, very nicely decorated, and comfortable. The kitchen was well-equipped, and we also had a dedicated braai area. We were there to see the wildlife, but the early morning mist made the majestic scenery highly atmospheric which was an unexpected added bonus. Jess the guide listened to... More

Very good accomodation with a high athmosphere of "African style". Excellent food (we had dinner twice in the evening). We hardly can recommend the game drive. We saw nothing but landscape. The price for that is not acceptable. Pay attention, the price for the game drive includes a softdring NOT a Amarula! We have to pay for that both. They... More

We enjoyed the game lodge very much! Madelaine is managing the lodge exceptionally well. The chalet was beatifully clean and the food supurb. Jess is the best guide that we went out with. His knowledge of the bush and the animals is amaising. We saw all of the animals that we wanted to see. This is a lodge to be... More
