Gecko Lodge is a very nice place to relax in between hectic safari days in Kruger Park. It is not pricy compared to what you get. The lodges were clean and had all the facilities we needed. No air-condition, but the rooms were cooler than expected and the fan was enough even though the temperature was almost 40 degrees Celsius... More

This is a cozy country lodge near Hazyview and on your way to Kruger National Park. It has been in existence for quite a while and the buildings are looking it. Rooms are fair to good and the meals are tasty. Reception was good and the staff friendly but not to the point of making you feel special. This is... More

Had a good stay here! Staff is very friendly and willing to help with anything. Stayed in the Turle Dove room. Only downside about the room was that you had to sit down in the bath to shower. Pool is awesome! So is the food!

I had a wonderful stay at Gecko Lodge. From the way we were greeted on arrival, to the choice of our table and service at dinner and breakfast, through to being waved off as we hopped back on our bikes for the next part of our trip we were perfectly looked after. I loved my room with it's gorgeous decor,... More

Very friendly and helpful staff. We left very early every morning to go into the park and got packed breakfasts. Lovely location. Very clean rooms. There are security guards on duty at night and they are very visible, so very safe location. Swimming pool was an added bonus.

We stayed 2 nights, when we arrived it was still not dark so we walk around, there is a big field of macadamia trees along the path that goes to the river, where probably there are crocodiles and hippos, we were not that lucky to see them. We had dinner in the restaurant, 3courses menu for R150. Really great. And... More

I stayed here on route from Jo'Burg before heading into Kruger for a couple of days. I thought the staff were incrediably helpful in all areas, and so friendly to chat with. The African dancers before dinner were a good quality, and made for a happy evening. The evening braai was good value and pretty standard in quality. The rooms... More

Rooms were comfortable and decorated in a vernacular style with flair. Lots of lovely outdoor spaces to sit in, and carefully tended gardens to enjoy. Beds comfortable, rooms airy with ceiling fans. All en suite, clean and functional. Breakfast ok, wifi slow and not available in rooms.
