We spent 3 nights at the Lodge . The hosts Phil and Margi are wonderful hosts. The attention to detail in the room was exceptional. Everything you could possibly want / need was available. Breakfast was great. You cant get better.

A very warm welcome from Philip and Margi after a long drive set us up for a fantastic 4 night stay. The setting was beautiful; the room amazing and the hosts very helpful and accommodating. I would recommend this lodge to all looking to stay in the Hazyview area.

We stayed at Blue Jay Lodge to have a weekend away from Gauteng. Apart from the many interesting roads leading into the Lowveld, and the ever-present Kruger Park, we found the lodge perfectly rustic and in sync with the environment. The very interesting architecture and lovely furnishings will have us back for another visit. We made use of the very... More

We spent 8 nights in the Blue Jay lodge and enjoyed our stay tremendously. Philip and Margi are excellent hosts, very friendly and helpful, without being "too present"..Spacey rooms with comfortable beds and shower plus bath. Wifi in the room, and balcony overlooking the lush green scenery. Hazyview turned out to be an excellent base for Kruger's Orpen & Phabeni... More

We stayed at Blue Jay Lodge for 3 nights and felt warmly welcomed by Phil and Margi. They did their best to make us feel comfortable - and we did feel very comfortable. We liked most the individuality of the guesthouse. Rooms are perfectly clean, breakfast and hospitality make you want for nothing! Two Gates to Kruger National Park are... More

My partner and I wanted a place with easy access to Kruger Park and the Panorama Route and we found the perfect place at Blue Jay Lodge. A ten minute drive to the Phabeni Gate, not much further to the Numbi and Paul Kruger Gates, and about 45 minutes to God's Window. The lodge and its owners were more than... More

This guesthouse is a great place to stay for visiting the Kruger and Panorama Route also a good choice of places to eat and shop nearby but the best reason to stay is the hospitality of the owners. They really know how to look after their guests with a friendly approachable style full of informative information mixed with good humour.... More

Blue Jay Lodge is an amazing place. The room is perfect, charming! The bathroom is huge and includes a nice bathtub. The owners are kind, and they also helped me to improve my tour at Kruger Park. Unfortunately, I stayed only two nights...I strongly recommend.
