Karkloof Safari Spa was the perfect spa/ safari experience. Fantastic service, beautiful location and excellent amenities. Their luxury rooms are modern and spacious. One of the best lodges and spas I have been to.

The most amazingly beautiful and relaxing Safari Spa experience. The best service in South Africa. Absolutely serene. On the drive from the gate to reception we saw so many animals and most of them had two week old young. They guides are friendly and you can walk in the park, as there are no predators.

Really really enjoyed our stay at Karkloof. The staff were AMAZING, room was absolutely gorgeous and so spacious. The view was out of this world and we wish we had had more time to spend on the balcony. Food was phenomenal and staff were so helpful, knowledgable and friendly. There wasn't a single thing about the accommodation we would have... More
