“Nice atmosphere and great value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2009

My wife and I went to South Africa on our honeymoon, and after a long flight from Europe and a short domestic flight to Kruger Mpumalanga Airport, we needed somewhere to rest for a couple of days, and White House Lodge was ideal for that. It is just 10 minutes from the airport (easy to find), basically in the middle of nowhere. The view is beautiful and there is a big garden where you can relax and/or play with the owners' four friendly dogs. We had booked the luxury cottage which we only paid 750 rands/night for. Very good value for your money.

On our second day, we did a tour of our own into the Kruger Park, before checking out and going to Sabi Sands for a "real" safari experience.

I think the White House Lodge is ideal for couples or families who need a place to relax for a couple of days (like us). It is also ideal for couples or families who want to have a relatively cheap living for excursions into Kruger and/or Blyde River Canyon.

We had been staying there for 4 nights. I have found the guest house on the internet and I must say that it was really very good choice. Couple of owners are very friendly , helpfull and staying there was just full of positive feelings.
From this place are many opportunities to visit a lot of interesting places in surround. Kruger park is just far few kilometres. There is absolutely necessary to rent car for travelling.
