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

Anja and Gideon made us feel very welcome. Everthing you ask for is being done with a smile. The lodge however needs a lot of maintenance but it is obvious they are working hard on this issue. Here we had the best bed and pillow in our 23 day trip. The only thing that disturbed our sleep were the smoking... More

We stayed over at Gecko Lodge for one night with the intent to leave first thing the following morning. However, we enjoyed it so much we only left after lunch. My daughter had so much fun in the lush, green gardens and beautiful rock pools that she wanted us to spend the rest of our holiday there. Gideon and Anja... More

A charming and welcoming simple family run hotel. Recently taken over by the current owners, who also run the backpacker place next door, this is a well priced and friendly hotel. We found the owners incredibly helpful, recommending activities and assisting with the next stage of our holiday and could not have been more hospitable. Rooms were huge, simply furnished... More

A group of 6 of us stayed at Gecko Lodge for 2 nights and loved it! It was the perfect place to relax after a time working in White River.

I booked a family room for three nights at the Gecko Lodge. I should have left after the first night, but due to an attempt by the owner to make accommodations for us, we stayed a second night, then left. There is NO door to the bathroom. Inquiring with the owner, she said she wasn't aware that parents don't go... More
