Lodge with beautiful garden and a terrific view. Location is excellent to start or end the Panorama route and visiting the Blyde River Canyon as well as the Kruger National Parc. Excellent breakfast and lovely host.

We (unfortunately) only stayed at the White House Lodge for one night but we really enjoyed it. We were very warmly welcomed and once they found out we had to leave before breakfast to catch our flight, they immediately deducting that from our bill (a completely unexpected and kind gesture). The garden was beautiful and the children enjoyed the pool... More

Food was excellent and was served when we wanted it. Service was excellent; we were picked up at the airport immediately. Owner was knowledgeable about the flora and fauna of the area. There was nothing we didn't like about the guest house. Our first night in South Africa was great.

Extremely comfortable accommodation ,excellent food and service. Stayed there for a night prior to heading to Kruger Park, and then again for a night afterwards. Susan and Detlef were so accommodating, the rooms and grounds are beautiful with great views. The breakfast and dinner were absolutely superb, and all advice given to us by Susan and Detlef was spot on.... More

Thanks for the Hosts at White House Lodge - you were very helpful and it was a terrible shame that Lufthansa delayed our flight by 24 hours thus making our booked stay with you impossible. We have no hesitation in recommending your customer service in staying up late in case we could have arrived very, very late in the night... More

I booked this place based on reviews on this page. It delivers everything it promises and more. Perfect stay and a shame we could only be there for 1 night. There was even a big fridge available for guests and a wine cellar and honesty bar. Breakfast was excellent. Can't fault the place; a definite thumps up!

Great value for money, friendly reception, neat and relaxing Great view over the surrounding area. Nice place to stay over for 1 night, if travelling towards Kruger and need to take a break if you had a long drive. Staff is knowledge of the area and assisted in planing our route to the Kruger, with the best roads!
