To go to the park You have to drive ten minutes to the Malelane Gate. It is very conveniently located. At the same time, being at the property is just amazing. The Garden is... More

We arrived at the Lodge after a long day of travelling to be welcomed by a temperature over 42dC at 4pm!! But a swim in the pool and cold drink from the "honesty bar" stocked fridge soon cooled us down. We were fortunate to have the Lodge to ourselves and made ourselves at home. The game viewing from the poolside... More

The only disappointment we had during our stay was that it was only 2 nights! Rose was amazing, the property was gorgeous, and the lodge itself was so comfortable, decorated beautifully and the views were breathtaking. Upon arriving we saw a huge croc sunning himself along the river and that night while eating dinner on the patio we saw a... More

Minutes from the new shopping centre in Malalane, it offers a perfect base for Kruger trips, with the Malalane Gate just ten kilometres away if you are going into the park. Game viewing from the gorgeous garden and terraces is excellent, and... More

Fantastic building, comfortable, spacious and well appointed. Stunning view over a beautiful garden to the river bank, accross the river and into the park. We were regularly visited by elephants, hippo, buck and other animals who wandered onto the river bank. Our only regret was not making this

We stayed here for the first week in August as a party of six and loved every minute of it. The owner, Peter, couldn't have been more helpful and made our stay most enjoyable by recommending game drives and organising bookings in response to our questions in advance. This meant that we arrived with everything organised and had time to... More

Beautiful setting, excellent overnight stay/weekend away. Friendly housekeeper. Safe. Very neat, stylish decorated which gives you a lovely sense of tranquility. Absolutely stunning! A must to stay! Being situated on the banks of the Crocodile river you have the most beautiful views of game coming down to the river.
