The entire hotel was built long time ago and is in average condition. The rooms are confortable with new beds that are very hard. There is a number of tv channels and the staff is professional, friendly and helpful. The rooms are joined and the doors are very thin, so sound carries loudly from one room to the other.

It's not going to win any international awards but if you are looking to get out of town with the kids and don't want to travel too far, this is a great choice. It's budget accommodation at a budget price, fairly basic rooms just two hours outside Johannesburg

We recently stayed at the Orion Safari Lodge for on evening. We booked a luxury rom, as it contains two double beds, which comes in handy as we have children. The room was quite a bit smaller than I expected a luxury room to be, with the result that the room didn't feel all that luxurious. The very small shower... More
