We stayed at Kurhula for 3 nights and had a wonderful stay. The owners, Kim & Sander, make you feel as a real guest and do anything possible to make your stay unforgettable. Combined with excellent food and service this is really a place to come back to.

And the lovely owners Kim and Sander do everything to make you feel welcome and well taken care of! Also the superb accomodation, the... More

Great lodge on the olifantsriver. Great view, from your terras you can see the hippo's walking in the river. Very friendly people. Delisious food. price/quality is top. The road to the lodge is a problem for very low cars.

The lodge itself was very nice and the location was also superb! The service provided was also top of the bill and the people there were really very friendly! Also a nice bonus was that our car was washed every day by the staff for free. I would highly recommend this venue.

We stayed in Kurhula Lodge for 6 nights. Owner couple were friendly and helpful and we got very personal service. With the help of their knowledge we had amazing holiday in Kruger area, and Mozambique. The cottages and lodge area with pool was clean and lovely, food was made from local organic ingredients and it was excellent.

We only stayed for two nights, in hindsight we should have stayed longer to experience the great hospitality, enjoyed the beautiful lodge, went on more game drives with Sanders and discovered the area. We will definitely be back!
