A group of 8 stayed 2 nights at Ravineside lodge which was a comfortable 4 star establishment, and then 2 nights at the luxurious 5 star Kingfisher lodge. Both had very hospitable staff with excellent food and wine.

Kingfisher lodge really needs to be upgraded to deserve the denomination of a "luxury" lodge. The rooms/bathrooms need to be revamped and service needs to raise its game as the food is not offering anything special and customer service is not in line with any luxury lodges you can find in South Africa. The location however is absolutely wonderful as... More

We were in two rooms facing the lake that were really nice. We loved the fire place in the rooms and every thing was nice and clean. The only improvement that they need is the heating in the bathroom that can be cold after the shower. The manager was really kind and capable and he did his best to make... More

The staff were friendly but the service and quality of food and accommodation was not as advertised. The bathroom doors in the rooms wouldn't close (shower and toilet) which was inconvenient in the least when sharing with a colleague. The food was bland and the portion sizes were extremely small. The game drives were nice but were 3-4 hours long... More

We stayed at Kingfisher lodge as part of a deal where we bought 4 nights for the price of 2. The setting is lovely beside a lake, and were allocated the 'honeymoon' lodge. Our initial impressions were good, but it was clear on closer inspection that a lot of maintenance needed doing on the buildings. I couldn't pin down why... More
