Lovely owners running a well maintained and ever expanding lodge. Rooms were comfortable, although mine was a little dark and more lighting would have been helpful. The food was great and the staff were very friendly

My second time at Kubu. A warm atmosphere with friendly and helpfull staff. Best food and we really enjoyed the bush walk. The silence is worth everything. Cheap rates which is a bonus. Will definately stay there again!!

Of a sympathetic German couple run lodge. A neat, well-kept house with functional rooms. No luxury accommodation but quite homey. Beautiful are the walks that you can do with the owner and / or the family dog ​​love. A good location to take to various wildlife watching.

The lodge is away from the not-main-road, about 45 minutes drive away from Kruger. However, it looks lovely and very well kept, staff is very friendly and helpful and food (including the braai that was served on the 2nd evening of our stay, the breakfastpackages and lunch served in Krugerpark during the safari) was really good but not cheap.

We stayed for just under a week and had booked the Hakuna Matata package, which includes all sorts of different excursions. The lodge itself is set in beautiful, spacious grounds, everything is very well maintained and clean. The rooms are very comfortable and tastefully done, and the food is really great - not just at the lodge itself, but even... More

This lodge offers you for the price good value and quality rooms. It would be nice to have air conditioning in the hot climate, but you can not expect it for this price. Good food and good position for excursions to the Drakensberg and krueger Park.

We were in South-Africa for 14 days and made a hole trip in the eastern part of the country. Of all the lodges we did, the Kubu Safari Lodge was THE BEST ONE !!! And we are used to travel and we normally stay in 4 and 5* hotels. The people are so kind and you feel they live for... More

Our stay here was a mix of what you find on this site. But you have to make a distinction between service and product. If you just want the summery here it is: It is not a 4 star hotel, maybe an average 3 star or a good 2 star hotel not because of the service which is oke (not... More

Unfortunately the lodge is not worth its high fees, and the website photos are very deceiving, and that is upsetting. If you are hoping to get the mountains scenic view that you find on the website photos, forget it! Those beautiful hills on the website cannot be seen from the lodge, in fact they are far away from Kubu Lodge,... More
