What a pleasant stay. We had a great room with a view of the lake. we had a very warm welcome as we checked in. All the staff were polite and helpful. The room was clean and had that holiday feel to it. The food...mind-blowing! You really get what you're paying for!! The lake was the best part, we canoed... More

It is very sad that we had to try and get as far away from the Lodge as possible, for us to enjoy our Wedding Anniversary. Our disappointments ranged from: - No responses to emails - Very incorrect prices given for activities - No bookings made after repeated requests - Rude receptionist - Room that smelt of DAMP and MOULD...

This place is perhaps in one of the most beautiful spots in SA. Amazing service, amazing views and the staff goes above and beyond. Diane (the manager on duty) were able to arrange white water rafting for us as an excursion and a spa day for the rest of our party. The food was amazing, especially breakfast, which is one... More

This lodge is somewhat off the beaten track. It is very peaceful here & you have mokeys roaming around everywhere. The accommodation is ok but the bathroom could be improved greatly. Breakfast is quite good. They also have a very cosy bar area which is great.

OK, so here is the bottom line. We went specifically to take the one hour boat ride on the lake formed by the Da Gama dam. The main reception building has very attractive views and U.S. A lovely place to enjoy a coffee or a wine while waiting for the boat ride. The boat was just a simple pontoon boat... More

We spent a night here as part of an Evergreen tour. After stumbling down a small unseen step on the terrace I asked 3 staff members if a light could be turned on as i have 2 artificial hips. They all looked at me as though I had 2 heads and did not even answer. One even closed a door... More

We stayed in Kiepersol House in Septemeber 2013. I must recommend it as a perfect place if to stay near Kruger Park (about 20 minutes away). The house is kitted for 8 people and tastefully decorated. We loved the private splash pool with the view over DeGama dam. I have also stayed in the Hulala Hotel and loved it. The... More
