It's a beautiful situated lodge in the impressive area of the Waterberge. Everybody is super friendly and helpful and the Game drives are great fun ! We happened to be the only guests and thus had the privilege of having the ranger just to ourselfes. We saw nearly all big Five (except the Leopard)

The bush experience was very commercial with too much noise coming from the ranger and other guests. The food is also quite poor and could really be improved upon. Service was excellent and setting is beautiful.

We visited the Lodge from 31 Dec 15 to 03 Jan 16. It was an amazing experience which we enjoyed. The game drives and our host Marco (our ranger) was excellent as was each and every member of the staff. Thank-you to each and every one for making it so special we will be back.

I was there in 2010! For 3 night! Everything that i was tried there was fantastic, such as safaris in early morning "at 3 AM" for visiting cheetah's and afternoon for visiting lion's and elephant's and etc until night. About food's They cooked African and international meal with fresh material's! Staff was sooo kind and friendly.

I visited Entabeni with colleagues for an overnight stay and was disappointed in the overall service levels and attention to detail. We arrived around 11:30 on the first morning and had spa treatments booked. We rushed from Ravineside to Lakeside where the spa is situated without booking into our rooms at Ravineside and had to wait for almost an hour... More

Nice place, rooms are on the side of the ravine (as the name implies) which is beautiful. The buildings themselves are a little old, but not too bad. The whole place feels like it must have been really grand... a number of years back. The pool was not inviting (but it wasn't really pool weather either). The rooms are about... More

The reserve itself was amazing. Great guides, beautiful land, animals in their wildlife, and nice staff. The main lodge was nice. Good food and of course a bar. The last night staff cooked outside and performed native and traditional son / dance. It was a surprise and truly made the stay memorable. The sleeping lodges were the only downside. Poorly... More
