We stayed here in November for one night, the accommodation was the best I have had in this category both in and outside of SA for years. Tessa was so accommodating, nothing too much trouble, I hope she enjoys her semi retirement and send good wishes for her son. The accommodation itself was superb, the furniture and fittings etc were... More

Stayed here last year before and after our wedding. The owner and manager could not have been more helpful and welcoming. They even helped me to steam the creases out of my dress before the big day and allowed us to leave behind some luggage as we were staying with them again after the wedding. Rooms and grounds are lovely.... More

The perfect place to stay in St. Lucia. Warm welcome by Tessa, spacious rooms with well equipped bathroom, free internet access 24/7. Small scale property so personal attention for all guests. Sumptuous breakfast. Close to the entrance of Isimangaliso Wetland Park. Definitely one of the best places we visited in during our visit to South Africa.

Tropical feeling at the Indian ocean with very personal top service, this is briefly summarised Lodge Afrique in Saint Lucia. Tessa and Elsa are the perfect hosts who have given the best instructions for excursions, restaurants and hippo adventures and have managed everything we wanted. During our stay in St.Lucia ruled water shortage. Restaurants had, for example, non fluently water,... More

I wish we had Tessa and Else as down the street neighbors to talk to, what nice ladies! The food was excellent and the ambiance and beauty of the hotel were really something, a great stay. Great location on a quiet street, but a close walk to McKenzie street.

Don’t be put off by what some may see as an austere entrance because behind the wall and through the lobby is a small piece of tranquillity. The eight well-proportioned rooms are set in a sub-tropical garden, complete with small swimming pool and sun-birds. Our room, which was typical of the others, was comfortably –equipped, with modern and tasteful décor,... More

It was a pleasure to have you here at Lodge Afrique as guests. We are very busy at the moment with the lodge just full every day. There are lots of animals around in the game reserve as we have had rain and the veld has lots of new grass. We are looking forward to your next visit here. More
