We stayed for four nights at the end of August, the low season and the lodge was very quite, indeed on two nights we were the only diners.
We had a room in the main lodge which was very nice and really good to be free from TVs and other such things, you don't need them just look out the window!
The food was alway good, it was nice to not have a menu to choose from but to have the chef surprise you with good food each night. It makes it more like going to a dinner party at a friends house.
The best part of the experience was having a drink on the balcony watching the stunning African sunset and then looking up at the night sky to a stunning sight of a night sky free from light pollution and see so many stars and the Milky Way in such detail.
The game drive was also good and the guide very knowledgeable. However I would still recommend combining this with a stay in in private game reserve where you can go off road, which you can not in the Kruger. Park.
The one down side was realising that my wife had here purse stolen from the room. We only noticed this as we were driving away. While we went back to look for it we never found it. However we did not report it as it seemed a shame to end the stay on a low note with the owners who had made the visit so memorable, especially as we had not locked the safe.
