We really felt like we left a piece of our hearts behind as we reluctantly left the heaven that is Earth Lodge. Our guide Joe and tracker Richard were amazing - they not only found us the most incredible game, but it was their sense of humour and care that we had the best safari ever, that made it really...

Astonishingly beautiful!! All natural materials. Walls of your villa are mud/ straw! Bathrooms so inviting, you never want to leave. Wildlife plentiful. The Game guides are so knowledgeable no question goes unanswered. You never miss an animal! Food and wines creative and gourmet. THIS IS HEAVEN!!

On arrival we're welcomed with cool drinks & a friendly staff. Every afternoon after Safari we're welcomed back by staff & delicious juice, What a wonderful surprise is this luxurious yet comfortable Lodge. Overlooking the Bushveld Earth Lodge has all natural materials & furniture made out of wood rescued from floods in 2000. Thatched roofs, water fountains, stone floorings, mud... More

The Earth Lodge is unlike anywhere I have stayed before, nestled in a private game reserve with nothing separating you from the animals! They have done such a good job of giving it an organic feel while keeping it luxurious. The room we stayed in was really spacious (the bath was especially huge) and we had a private plunge pool...

Arrived from a week of mtgs in Capetown to this amazing property. The 2 safari's a day of course are awesome - you will see the Big 5 and plenty of other action. But what makes the Earth Lodge special is the staff and the actual property itself. From the moment you walk in- everyone knows your name and remembers... More

We had read the reviews for the property and had heard directly from several folks who had stayed at Earth Lodge.........nothing prepaired us for the experience we had. The hotel itself is beautiful, it blends so naturally into the area that you wouldn't even know it was there. The animals certainly don't because a heard of elephants literally walked so... More

Initially sceptical of Earth Lodge when suggested, because of pictures making its design look rather heavy on the concrete, we couldn't have been more wrong. We had initially wanted the traditional (colonial?) style of lodge as we had in Kenya and Tanzania, but decided to try something different. Quite a shock when you first walk in down the passage, it... More

This was our first time staying in the southern part of Sabi Sands as we have generally stayed in lodges more north and could not have chosen a better lodge to experience the south. The lodge is not fenced and whilst having pre dinner drinks outside the bar area one evening, we had a hyena come right up to the... More

Upon arriving to this beautiful lodge we were thrilled to see the beauty of it's architecture and how it complemented the natural surroundings. We had been traveling around Southern Africa for over a month and had stayed at many camps and lodges. We absolutely loved this lodge, the people, the service and the safaris. Everything was top notch. The spa... More

Probably one of the best hotels I ever stay. Around 1 hour from Skukuza Airport that bush lodge has few rooms. Each room has their own plunge swimming pool. All meals and 2 game safari per day are inclueded in the rate. The staff is very helpful and friendly. This is a kind of hotel I want to visit again.
