I stayed one night early September in Zuleika house and I wish I had booked more time!
I chose to spend 1 day near Hoesdprut for two reasons: 1) I wanted to visit the Panoramic road and 2) I needed a place not too far from Camp Jabulani, where I had an Elephant Back Safari at 6:30 AM. So I really used the place only to crash. Which is a waste: the lodge was spacious and nicely decorated, using non processed materials I think. Very creative approach and design.
I has the Superior room. I think there are 3 of them, all different I'm told. Mine was the closest to the reception and restaurant so it was less private than the other two. The view was nice from our balcony. I think one of the other two room had somewhat less of an obstructed view (by trees) so you could see the mountains clearly. I was in room 4.
The ground themselves are immaculate. There was a pool and a small pond. When we were there they were building additional bungalows.
Booked a dinner there. I think it was 120 ZAR per person and was really worth it. The quietness in this area is unbelievable. It's a great way to enjoy the near Kruger area. The breakfast was diversified and generous, and the setting of the restaurant overlooking the mountains and the grounds is pure serenity. I also heard that they had Hippos on the property but we didn't have a chance to see them, we rushed to our Private Reserve.
Definitely will come back if I can.
