On our way to Marloth Park, we overnighted at this lovely resort. We checked into our two bedroom chalet overlooking the game reserve. The chalet inside was spotlessly clean and well equipped. Unfortunately not the same could be said outside with liquor bottles and plastic packets laying on the grass...rather strange for this lovely resort. We went down to the... More

We went camping and as I could remember as kids Badplaas did not disappoint! There was a lot of activities, just wish the shop at the pool was open later. Even with load shedding we still had essential lights and water. Thank you

Had a great long weekend with friends. Staff were very friendly, and requests were immediately met. Unfortunately some staff were unaware of the location of serval facilities (ie the golf course) and sent us on a wild goose chase, luckily we found a helpful security guard that was able to point us in the right direction.

I stayed at Badplaas Forever resort with friends for four nights on a sports tour. Reservation was painless and efficient. The rest of the weekend, I found the staff generally gloomy and disinterested. My single room was comfortable and had a fridge, a desk and a nice bathroom with a shower only. I complained a few times about a rattling... More

Spent 3 nights at the hotel side...the rooms and surroundings are clean, the place can take up a lot of guests including day visitors which can make it congested. Its full of life and good place for famlies but 1. The food was pathetic...the breakfast and buffet were poor. From being over salted and seemingly recycled. I am sure the... More

We visited the place for the first time and normally we don't visit anywhere when it's holiday time. We did the same when we took our long drive, must say we arrived late and the staff were very good to us. The place is beautiful and we loved the facilities as well. Our chalet was clean and was regularly serviced... More

We visit Badplaas for 30years now in camping facilities. And my husband for over 40years now. Super safe for the kids, while the parents relax. My kids grew up next to your swimming pools. Service at take away shop next to Milky Lane has been unfriendly past 2 years but that will not influence our love for Badplaas.

We spend a night camping at Badplaas. It a Tuesday night and the camp site / resort was not very busy, however from about 23h00 to 00h00 vehicles started arriving and although they were booked into huts they drove through the campsite with their lights on bright. There was no need for them to travel to the huts via the... More

After reading most of the reviews here I almost feel that I can sum it up as follows: If you have been to Badplaas before, you enjoy it because you had good memories. Those of us who only recently visited find it lacking a lot in the service department. We had a nice stay and the accommodation was great but... More

I know that there are rules that need to be followed... But what counts for one counts for all!! Being told our music is too loud. And being forced to switch it off completely and then hearing other people going on with even louder music for hours and nothing gets done. Extremely annoyed, will think twice before coming here again!!
