The lodge was kind of nice but as i read that it had burnt down last year I was expecting that it would be nicer, more spanking clean..it wasnt so. The restuarant was really nicely done up and we enjoyed our meals there...they have lovely lights put up and the view is nice too. The rooms however are quite dated... More

The 3rd bedroom is upstairs & is a "loft-like" room (no door). You have all the comforts of home and the units are cleaned every day. The place was spotless. The backyard was... More

We later saw much the same around the Durban area for 4 times the price we got the gifts at the Damn.... More

Location is great, close to Sun City and the game Park. The rooms are quite dated and definitely need renovation. The black mould was everywhere in the bathroom. Wouldn't say the food in the restaurant was great, just average. Staff very nice.

The guest rooms are stunningly presented and very comfortable. Waking up to bird sounds, the rooms open out on to the gardens. The key drawcard to this... More
