This is one of the best if not the best lodge we've ever stayed. Spent 2 nights here with our family of 4. The room is very spacious, beautifully decorated, fantastic beds and lots of towels in the spacious bathroom. Great welcome by the owner who gave us a lot of advice about the area and chocolate cake upon arrival.... More

We stayed here on our last night in SA, and couldn't have picked a better place! The room was fantastic and absolutely massive, and especially the bathroom was just amazing. The owner and staff were very welcoming, and service in general was great - we even found our car washed in the morning! The breakfast was excellent, although a little... More

If like me you read the reviews and thought to yourself "it can't be that good... It's just a guesthouse in a little touristy town" then go and stay here. The reviews really aren't exaggerated as the location is great, the theme / decor / styling is imaginative and stylish, the food is excellent and the service and hospitality are... More

This Guest Lodge exemplifies the beauty found within minutes of the many sites in the area, a wonderful, warm and welcoming place to lay your head after a long day of hiking and site/sight seeing. Hendry also has two dogs, of which one chose to befriend us, I always say there's no home away from home unless they have a... More

This Lodge is not only well located, it is worth the trip. We stayed one night but Hendry and his team are absolutely perfect hosts. The apartment we had was very lovely and the meal outside in our patio as well as our morning breakfast were just outstanding. Hendry is busy enlarging his Lodge and no doubt Dar Amane will... More

Thanks to Hendry and the team, we felt welcome and at home right from the start. No over-the-top decorations, but subtle and simple, harmonious, all locally made, and in an original style. Hendry's cooking was absolutely delicious, fresh, and healthy. Highly recommended. We'd love to come back any time.

We stayed for almost a week with Hendry over Xmas. The rooms are so beautifully furnished, with attention paid to even the smallest detail. We were still discovering new artifacts on the day we left. Hendry's hospitality is wonderful and the service of his staff is exceptional. We got to know Lucas particularly well who was great. They make feel... More

This is a "must" - everything was perfect, starting from the great communication before our arrival to the amazing room and fantastic dinners and outstanding breakfasts. We had had our worst travel day ever having had a car accident in the morning so were running about 5hrs later than expected- I sent Hendry a quick email to explain and it... More

We just spent a whole week witch Hendry and his staff and everyrhing written in the previous reviews ia absolutely true. Hendry's hospitality is really amazing. And then, his private diners are fabulous. So, if you have any doubt, stop hesitating. We every day that we spent here, had the private diners and they were topclass. They were always different...

Hendry's finishing touches and attention to detail and research of his guests makes this an amazing stay. The room, the candles, the Rooibos tea, the welcome, the water, the bed, the shower, the soaking tub, the decor, the refrigerator, the lighting, the snacks in the room, the full-size unopened bars of soap, the comfort, the privacy, the breakfast, the pampering...
