A lovely, well appointed, peaceful place. Staff great and food excellent. Worth a visit. Better than staying in Hluhluwe Game Reserve. Accommodation great. Nice waterhole visable from chalets, pool and main area.

Great family feeling, ambience was perfect, everyone was part of a well oiled team. It was very clean and tidy. Food was wonderful. Grounds are well kept and the view from the lounge upstairs verandah was fantastic, giraffes at the watering hole only meters away from the lodge. I would recommend this lodge to anyone. The safari tours were exciting... More

We had a terrific safari tour with the African Spirit Game Lodge! To start, we stayed in 3 different camps in Kruger, with our favorite being Skukuza. Mike was an outstanding guide - friendly, funny and easy going. He patiently waited for us at the airport while we were held up at immigration. We shared many meals together, and he... More

Very relaxing weekend in a lovely self catering unit. Helpful friendly staff that were very accomodating and took care of all our needs. Game drive was fun and we got to see the Wild Dogs up close and a Black Rhino which was on our list of animals to see.

Seriously, everything was just perfect! We arrived with Coert our guide whisking us off to see 3 lion brothers at a watering hole, just finished feasting on a cape buffalo. That set the standard and it was maintained all the way through our 5 day stay. The accommodation was top class and tranquil with a perfect view of the reserve... More

We stayed in the family accomodation which is a great place. The safaris were amazing, the guide very enthusiastic and inspiring. The location of African Spirit Game lodge is very beautiful; in the middle of nature.

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
