Overall rating is good. Peaceful, Quiet, tranquil and good rooms and no more, that is what was needed and that is what we got, we had a pleasant stay and it is near everything but without the hustle and bustle. If you want fair priced self catering accommodation, this was value for money. I will recommend but do not expect... More

Beautiful location and great value for money. It's close to all the attractions around Hazyview, Sabie and Graskop. The rooms are clean and have everything you need. The owners are friendly and welcoming.

Hi, It was worth every penny: quiet, clean, well equiped kitchen, 11 km to shops / fuel station and 20 min to the Kruger - phabeni gate. One day we were too tired to drive around so spent day relaxing and soaking by the river flowing via the lodge. Andrew, Aurio and their pets were all v friendly and warm.

1. I ask for a bath in the room, the owner said that she did contact me back according to this but I didn't got an email like that. 2. The room also had a smell we didn't like. 3. Comparing to 6 other guesthouses/self catering places we stayed in during our road trip this is the one that I... More

We were a group of 4 who planned to stay for 4 nights but because we enjoyed our stay at Nwanakalile so much, we didn't want to leave. We ended up staying for 8 nights. Andrew and Auriol, the owners, are very welcoming and immediately we felt at home. The place is very close to Kruger National Park, nestled on... More

The most beautiful scenery in the most beautiful location with the most friendly , hospitable owners. Loved every moment spent at Nwanakalile Lodge. Location excellent . Only one criticism and that was the fan was a bit noisy and would have preferred an airconditioner. Thanks for a wonderful stay

We stayed at Nwanakalile lodge for 5 days over the Easter Weekend. We stayed in the Premier suite, which has it's own heated pool. The pool was a big hit as the adults could relax in the afternoon after a day's sight seeing and the kids were entertained. The room decor is lovely and they were serviced daily, which is... More
