Place is very nice, but lacks much needed maintenance. For the price you pay, not worth it. This house has no fans on the veranda, in the lounge, dinning area and kitchen. In Marloth this is a must due to the intense heat. Remotes for fans everywhere, but no fans. Kitchen back door is locked and they cannot find the key, no fan so very hot in the kitchen. Stove does not work, this is a gas stove so if you are not a smoker and don't have a lighter you cannot light the gas stove to cook. Pool lights don't work, pool filter very weak and fountain does not work. Zebra bathroom toilet door is a sliding door, but you need to be superman to open and close it. Advertised as having mosquito nets around the beds, DStv and WiFi, but this is not available. We had to ask for WiFi and got this, but the DStv is none existent. Lacking in the kitchen is serving dishes (there are none) and drinking glasses. Plugs - majority of them don't work well. Much need fan on the veranda. Sewerage pipe blockage, they had to fix it twice in a week.

Thank you Royal Kruger Lodge for our stay. We enjoyed the expert safari where we managed to see the big 5 for our first time come back and just have a back and neck massages with (I must say) very professional ladies. The food is excellent and always different. The royal Kruger Lodge is definitely an address we are keeping in mind.

Now, I’m clearly biased because I came here and I haven’t experienced the other accommodation in Marloth park but I only have good words to speak about, the accommodation, THE STAFF! And the customer service that is provided by royal Kruger lodge. Special notes to Emily, who arranged last minute extra nights stay, last minute day trips to panorama, and made anything we wanted to do so easy, also special mention to Robert Who is the main safari guide and his knowledge is remarkable, as well as his care of nature and the Kruger national park, and last but definitely not least to Mama who as her name suggest is the camp mother, she will make sure you are well fed, and always has a smile on her face, mama was sick for 3 days of our 5 days there and not once did she let it show, she is a blessing to the lodge and your stay, every night is a surprise and the boma dinners will not disappoint. Wlid animals also walk freely through the lodge, we were lucky enough to see warthogs daily (old and young) mongoose, giraffe and zebra

we stayed in the villa before Christmas and this was one of the places where we expected to have an amazing experience. Although the Marloth Park is a great place, Royal Kruger Lodge did not deliver on the customer service and management. Sadly, the staff lacks hospitality training (spending time on their mobile rather than serving and assisting guests during breakfast). The food on the first evening was stunning Ostrich on the BBQ in the Boma but lunch was disappointing pizza. There is a lack of management who never seems to be there. The Spa - what Spa? seems to be inexistent. The villa was quite far from the Lodge (definitely a drive, not a walk away) and the interior could do with a bit of attention (2 bedside lamps broken, door impossible to open to the balcony, kitchen had far too much 'stuff', lightbulbs missing etc). Definitely, not the 4 star promised. Despite this, we had a pleasant stay, enjoyed the pool, the 4 bedrooms are spacious. It lacked a special touch and is no match for the excellent hospitality we have experienced in all other places we stayed.

If you only have time for 1 location in Africa go here. Great vibe, small lodge with 9 rooms, awesome staff (Julia & Emily), very relaxing, awesome Safari tour guide (Robert), close to Kruger. Recommend to anyone and everyone.
