This hotel is well-located and reasonably priced; however, the first room we were given had dirty sheets and there was a large gecko in the room. We requested a new room and the friendly hotel staff obliged. The wifi didn't work in either of our rooms and the signal strength was poor at the lobby as well - this may... More

Do not expect 5 star luxury at Sefapane, however it is most certainly worth the money. Our rondavel was neat and tidy, and all was in working order. If you do require a more luxurious stay, rather book one of the safari houses. We made use of the morning safari. Our guide Patrick was knowledgeable about the animals and plants... More

The location is superb. From Sefapane you enter Kruger park in a couple of minutes. Distance from Hans Merensky golf is close. Sefapane offers you a perfect stay for recreation or adventure. At the desk you can register for several activities in the park. Restaurant and bar are good. Swimmingpool connects with the bar.

Great accomodation in the bushveld. From a personal little welcome letter on the bed to the tranquility next to the sparkling pools, its a great place to stay. The food pricing at the restaurant might seem a bit high but the chef know how to dish-UP. ENJOY YOUR STAY in a Rondavel!!

We were referred to the restaurant by our guesthouse (but they were unaware of the current situation) and we had the most outrageous dining experience in South Africa. We live in Cape Town and go to restaurants all the time so we have very good knowledge of what's out there. Well, this restaurant looks like a place for groups, synthetic... More
