We spend one night at that lodge whilst visiting the area for a sporting event. The staff were extremely helpful and nothing was to much trouble. The evening meal was well prepared and well served. The accommodation was good and the location of the lodge beautiful on the banks of the dam. The lodge is to be recommended.

We had a nice lodge near the lake. Sitting outside whas very relaxing. Nice to view all the monkeys walking by. The staff was so kind and friendly. We had a fantastic dinner and breakfast. Everyone did their best to make us happy. And we were!

We needed a special place to stay after the chaos of the border at Beitbridge, and we found it! It is a really special place and the staff could not have been more friendly, the food was excellent and we will definitely return the next time we are brave enough to face the border crossing.

Shiluvari is a lodge on a lake 20km off the main road north from Johannesburg (N1). We used it to break up the drive to Northern Kruger (Pafuri area). While the general area is not worth visiting, the lodge is a wonderful surprise. Down a dirt track, you enter beautiful vegetation and a tranquil setting. There are both rooms and... More

This lodge is incredibly beautiful aling the dam but our family unit needs some fixing up. The kitchenette has no hot water, a micowave in need of replacing, very limited utensils. The bath needs a new tap unit as it leaks constantly when not on and has resulted in wall damage. This family unit is also not kid friendly at... More

We had a wonderful night at Shiluvari. They had had a huge amount of rain leading up to us being there, and the dam was full. The room we were in had a bath overlooking the dam a shower inside, but also a discrete shower in the open air, right on the water. Mosquito nets over the bed was also... More

When you need to kick back and relax this is a perfect spot for you. The pace is slow, the views stunning and the whole ambience is designed for relaxation. Be sure to arrive during daylight so that you can enjoy the view. If you need some romantic time you will find this a perfect hideaway. The pub is quaint... More

Spent one night at the lodge to break a long drive from Harare to Johannesburg. Couldn't have asked for a more peaceful and relaxing setting. The lodge is located about 25km off the N1 along the banks of the Albasini dam that apparently has hippo and crocodile although we didn't see any. The highlight of the trip was the delicious...

The staff accommodated changes in our needs (when we had no right to ask) with courtesy and grace. Breakfast, lunch and dinner were exceptional. The accommodation was tasteful and comfortable. The common areas decorated with style. It was like being a great big hug by Africa.

We stayed for one night only in May on the way to the Kruger. The place is beautiful with the Albasini Dam around. We had a bungalow with a small terrace overlooking the Dam. Perfect to enjoy the sunset and watch the rich birdlife. Wonderful bathroom with a window on the lake. Simple but very tasty homemade food and very... More
