Greenfire Game Lodge is a contemporary lodge with incredible windows, showing off the river bed. Each room is its own separate "hut", again surrounded with windows. They have a contemporary feel, that will appeal to the urban sophisticate. The food was excellent and they are able to cater for special dietary considerations. Wian, my driver was knowledgeable, friendly and a... More

I stayed at Greenfire for 4 days for a combination walk/drive safari. The accommodation was gorgeous and modern. The staff were superb and the food was delicious. I loved the whole experience. Our guide Wian was very generous with his time and shared his vast knowledge of local culture and wildlife.

We spent four days in this beautiful spot in the greater Kruger. The resort is perfectly blended with the glorious surrounding landscape and it gave us a fantastic opportunity to experience this part of Africa in a very genuine way. The Game Lodge is extremely well managed by Adrian and Kim, but everyone else was extremely welcoming and efficient. From... More

We just came back from spending a 3 Day safari at Greenfire Game Lodge. The service was simply amazing. Everything was taken care of the moment we booked our lodges. Pick up from our hotel room at the Holiday Inn in Jo'burg was prompted via Ashton Tours. The ride was smooth and the periodic rest made the trip shorter than... More

The nights spent at the Greenfire Game lodge were wonderful. Everything was taken care of from collecting me at the gate to delivering me back there 5 days later. The two game drives a day were eventful and great fun.

Arriving to Greenfire Lodge truly blew us away from the beginning. Upon arrival, we were met by a very welcoming Adrian who then showed us to our room....wow....we were speechless at how beautiful the room was...and all for ourselves - magic. Adrian whisked us straight onto the afternoon safari so that we didn't miss out. We had great guides who... More

We fell in love with the Greenfire Lodge the moment we walked through the doors. Kim and Adrian are wonderful hosts and made us feel at home immediately. Our guides were great. Isaac, Adrian and LeeAnn are very knowledgeable and do a great job finding the animals. Isaac has some wonderful stories. We also got to experience his "bush ralies".... More

Greenfire is everything you could possibly want for an African safari adventure. Brilliant managers in Kim and Adrian, wonderful guides including the legendary Isaac, elephants meandering down the river past your "tent" and food to travel across a continent for! We stayed for 10 days (have done this a couple of times) and saw the most incredible game sightings but... More

Your adventure starts the minute you land at the Eastgate airport. The staff treat you like family and want to share with you their home. The lodge is set away from human distraction allowing you to enjoy the natural environment in complete luxury. You will learn so much about the animals as you see,smell and hear them up close.

Took 4 day trip from Joburg, with walking tour focus and loved it. The lodge is new and lovely and very comfortable. Kim and Adrian are very welcoming hosts so this feels like a family owned lodge, rather than a corporate owned one. You really can see wildlife from the rooms. The guides were very good and responded to my... More
