An intimate, stylish and great setting for a lodge. The central lounge area has a great view over an amphitheater of a games plain. The lodge lacks the special edge that many of the other top end lodges near the Kruger have. The food is good but the dining area is a fairly small dining room where all guests sit at a long table. The weather was pretty cold so we couldn't sit on the deck. The dinner was very good but not outstanding, also served too quickly. The wine list is seriously poor for a top end lodge and the staff don't know their wines well. However, the energy and friendliness of the staff made up for their inexperience.
Having experienced the uncrowded game viewing of the private game lodges of the Kruger area, the Pilanesberg game viewing experience is not good. The game viewing was good(lots of rhino) but spoilt by the fact that there were at least10 other vehicles at a good sighting.
A well located lodge for a quick weekend away from Jhb but I would rather save my budget for when you have more time and get to the private game lodges were the game viewing is less crowded.
