Of all the places my spouse and I have stayed in the world, Casart Game lodge is one the best if not the best experience we've had. The owners, Jan and Sonia, are extremely hospitable and will ensure that everything you want is provided. The breakfasts and dinners they prepared for us were some of the best food we had... More

Casart Lodge is the most beautiful place in which we stayed in South Africa. The staff is efficient, the rooms are beautiful, spacious, clean and very comfortable. We were welcomed like in a family, especially the food is a real experience. We highly recommend it.

Sonia and Jan are the friendliest and most attentive hosts we met over our years of traveling around the world. The small lodge is in the middle of a game reserve which is open to the Krüger Park. The water hole right in front of the pool attracts all kind of animals and we could observe 4 elephants, waterbocks, ........ More

At first you might question your decision to book a place an hour from Phalaborwa gate. Soon you'll appreciate all Carsart has to offer. Incredible Animal sightings right on your doorstep. Romantic accommodations. You'll be delighted by delicious meals, some tradition but with creative edge and beautiful presentation. Service was consistently first class. We stayed five nights . The lodge... More

We enjoyed a 4 day stay at Casart Game Lodge early December, and the experience was just amazing. The lodge is set in a tranquil environment, the only sound you hear are the birds whistling in the trees. This is the ideal place to break away from your usual busy life in order to relax and leave it all behind... More

Loved to be far from civilisation, but with every possible comfort, enjoyed a sky of stars in the outside Whirlpool, as well as a swim in the pool or a sunbath on the sundeck, with most wonderful hosts
