We only stayed for one night, but on arrival we were captivated by the beautiful gardens and setting. While not 'high end' the rooms were very tastefully furnished and comfortable. The public reception \ lounge \ bar area is very pleasant and the proprietor and staff were readily available and welcoming. We had a delicious and nicely presented dinner and... More

We recently spent 5 great nights at Gecko Lodge. It was the perfect place to spend time while we explored the Kruger National Park. Only 15 mins from the KNP gates made it easy for us to get up, enjoy breakfast and of course the hot chocolate! Then we would be welcomed back after a day of adventure. The owners... More

Refreshing calming sound of water in beautiful Lowveld surroundings. Nestled against the Sabi river, Gecko Lodge is 'bush spleandour' and simplicity that is affordable for a weekend breakaway Friendly, Warm Hospitality and A 'Right at Home' feeling. Thank you Anja and Gedion for a great weekend well worth the drive

On a quick overnight in Hazyview, the lodge was a good rest place. The room we were in was a bit cold (Botswana), but the duvet was adequate. Breakfast the next day was a bit disappointing. It wasn't very hot by the time I received it. I think this is due to the location of the kitchen away from the... More

This guesthouse was great, a bit rustic, but that was what I was looking for. It was in a great location, safe, secure, but easy to get to shopping and to the national park. The staff was very friendly, the food was good, the wine was excellent, and sitting on the rock face and watching monkeys as the sun goes... More

We had the pleasure, and I do mean pleasure, of staying at both the backpackers camp on the way out and their lovely rooms on the way back. Both are different in the fun, hospitality and experience, but both are common in good home values of hospitality, good value and friendship. The backpackers is huge fun, both the guys know... More

From the second we arrived we felt welcome. The two owners are very kind and made sure we got everything we needed. The rooms were spacious and clean. The location was great, close to the panorama route and close to the Kruger. Plenty to do. We had dinner twice at the lodge and both times it was very tasteful and... More
