So, if you are reading this, you also need to check out the reviews for Komati Gorge Lodge - which is the same place, but under a different heading on Tripadvisor. What a fantastic and under-rated find this was! I am almost tempted to NOT write a review so I can keep this gem tucked away from other eyes. PROS:... More

All cottages are well appointed and self catering but the restaurant is open for the weekend offering breakfast, light lunches and great dinners.We had all breakfast and dinners there. There is an...

It's beautiful, the staff are friendly, there are a lot of activities for everyone, paddle boating, archery, horse riding and hikes. The houses are perfectly decorated. DOG FRIENDLY!!!! The water is sooo clean, just had an amazing time! The pool area looked so inviting definitely going back in the summer time!

Gorgeous setting. We stayed in Kingfisher which was comfortable. The children's room had bats flying around the first night but after the staff attended to it the following morning, the bats seemed to stay away. The staff were very friendly. Bright (the security guard at the gate) was helpful and greeted us warmly and enthusiastically. The cleaning staff were efficient... More

We were a young couple looking for a beautiful romantic destination... We completely succeeded in finding one at Komati Gorge. Food was amazing, 5 stars. Lots of activities. Management was very helpful and quick to fulfill our requests. Only thing missing was a shaded area for our picnic. This place is highly recommended!

Firstly, the gravel road to the venue is an absolute pleasure! Upon entering the Gorge we were welcomed by Patricia. What an incredibly friendly receptionist! And she doubles as the massage therapist too! We stayed in the FireFly cottage with our 2 children. We realised just before dark that we had no hot water, but Manager Ernst came to our... More

I recently booked this place for a long weekend. After accepting the booking, they added a 'minimum stay' clause, and without making further contact gave our booking away. They admit their employee made a mistake but we are the ones out in the cold. Not happy.

We arrived there, had supper, very mediocre hotel... More

We had a wonderful relaxing weekend with no idee of time.The environment is that of absolute peace and tranquility. This lodge is situated away from the hussel and bussel of the everyday rush an escape from the world. You just dont want to go back to the real world when the weekend is over.The hospitality is that of nothing but... More

Had a super relaxing weekend with wife and daughter. A place you can really wind down at. Beautiful scenery. The walking trails are amazing. Will definitely visit again. The only tip is to play open cards about the road conditions. I was told my sedan would handle it but was damn glad I took the Fortuner. Further, stunning place and... More
