It is so difficult to begin this review as the time at Tilodi was beyond amazing... The staff at the lodge we fantastic, the room perfect, the food hearty & the animals made the trip extra special. We stayed for 4 nights in January 2014. We arrive at the lodge and all the people working at Tilodi were waiting for... More

This was the first stop of our honeymoon. From the beginning Nelia was very helpful with our booking as it was done a year in advance and we couldn't wait to be spoiled being surrounded by nature. We were also contacted on the day of check in, with directions which was great. We arrived just after 15:00 but could not... More

We spent our 20th wedding anniversary weekend at the lodge and it was fantastic. We were thoroughly spoiled in the peace and tranquillity that Tilodi offers. Fantastic bird life right on our stoep. Staff were wonderful. Left feeling like we'll be back

My husband and I travelled to Tilodi from Johannesburg to celebrate the coming of 2014. We booked for three nights from the 30 December 2013-02 January 2014. On booking our stay online the booking staff were very well organized and our booking was made effortlessly and without any difficulty. In addition we were asked during the booking process what our... More

Six o’clock sharp and out on a buffalo search! Getting on board of the landcruiser and enjoying the glorious weather. Cloudy and the odd drop of rain – wonderful magical moments. TILODI WILDERNESS at its best! Entering into MARULA RESERVE and the search begins. Vegetation is dense and the Vaalbos “airoma” surrounds us. Birdlife is abundant and the various greens... More

What can I say. All the reviews are spot on. It was totally unexpected to see a croc at the dam. Sorry that the hippo's went to visit the neighbour's hippo's. Willem and Philip went looking for the animals for me. I only did not see the hippo's and buffalo's. Marha made the most delicious food with her helpers. Hendre... More

After a week of city life, there's nothing like nature laced with luxury and sinfully good cuisine to get back your vibe. From the moment we arrived at Tilodi, the spectacular scenery and warm reception transported us to another world, far far away from the city we had just come from. It's really hard to stay stressed when surrounded by... More

Tilodi is a definite must for anyone looking to see South African wilderness. With excellent service and beautiful surroundings with a large ammount of game, Tilodi is sure to amaze... More

A visit to Tilodi is like visiting friends on a game farm. The friendly owners and staff aim to please in every possible way. Game drives are offered every morning and afternoon and the driver/ guide offers information about trees and plants and birds along the way. The animals at Tilodi are very shy possibly because of unobtrusive hunters on... More

Our stay at Tilodi was truly lovely. On arrival, we were met by the Owners, Johan and Nelia van Huyssteen together with the rest of the reception staff and we were immediately made to feel welcome. The entrance area is huge and forms a comfortable meeting, relaxing and reading place for guests. It overlooks a watering hole and the bushveldt... More
