This review is long overdue but I still wanted to write it. We had one night in Gecko Ridge Lodge on our way to Kruger. We wanted to pack a good days sightseeing in as well as a good nights sleep. We were not disappointed. We turned up very early from our overnight flight and Sandy welcomed us into the Lodge with hot beverages and a warm welcome. We said we wanted to go sightseeing and she arranged a local driver and taxi to take us around the sights dropping us off at the Apartheid museum late afternoon. When we came out Sandy was waiting to take us back to the lodge. Good local steakhouse just down the road at the local shopping centre. Excellent breakfast, very comfortable room and an extremely hospitable host. Would recommend.
