From the moment you arrive, you are treated like royalty. When we arrived in the cottage, everything were very neat and clean, the view is absolutely beautiful. We had a braaipackage that was waiting for us in the cottage. I will certainly recommend this, very nice.

The place is amazing, a beautiful view and the chalets are fully equipped. To get to the chalets you have to walk for a pass over the trees just like the chalets. The problem is that we had just one night, but is a place for a week minimum. For sure, if i return to South Africa I will stay... More

Twelve years ago all our wedding guests occupied Boardwalk Lodge and we spent our last 3 nights of our honeymoon here. The views are still as breathtaking as ever! The units are maintained excellent and the property is a gem! There are no complaints, just some constructive criticism to help the property be even better for future guests and hopefully... More

The service was brilliant from the time I called to make my booking right through to checkout. I stayed in the 1 bedroom suite no. 2 which had a beautiful view of the ocean and the mountain. The suite itself was modern and had all the amenities needed including a microwave. If you're not going to use a car, prepare... More

Very special accommodation with rooms/apartments located in different cottages, "glued" to the hill. Spectacular view from the private terrace, tastefully furnished rooms, excellent breakfast, friendly service, good value …. nothing to complain (besides the size of the bathroom which was rather small, compared to the overall size of the apartment) and highly recommendable for a stay in Wilderness.

We stayed for 4 days in a chalet at the Boardwalk Lodge. The lodge has regular units (suites and rooms) and in addition has three independent chalets. If you have the means, I would highly recommend splurging on the chalets. They are situated on three different levels, amidst the woods (the wilderness, in Wilderness!) on the hills overlooking the ocean.... More
