We had a pleasant experience at the lodge. The staff are very friendly, helpful and hands on. They made us feel at home and would definitely recommend Phumula Kruger Lodge. If you are in need of a peaceful getaway, this is definitely the place to go.

Beds and pillows are crap and need replacing so don't expect a good nights sleep, no water coming... More

I had a wonderful time at Phumula Kruger, the staff were very nice and calm they were very helpful and i felt like i have been there before the way i was treated. I will definitely make it my Swazi escape next time i get a chance.

We were looking for a place in Marloth Park to have a nice breakfast. This is a beautiful lodge and a lovely restaurant. Breakfast was served nicely although a bit cold. However, due to the setting and ambiance we will visit again.

We stayed one night in Phumula and we loved it. Staff was friendly, room was very big and the bed was big and comfy! The wifi worked very good as well and the bar was nice at night with lots of people watching Rugby!

Nice place to stay if you are looking forward to visiting Kruger park. Good location just at a few minutes by car. Also the only place in Marloth park where other people can have lunch. The owner even help us to get to one of our visits with her car because it was raining a lot. Really nice woman.

The accommodation was easy to find and very neat. The kitchen service was unfortunately extremely slow - we waited 45 minutes for breakfast to be served and we were the only table being served. It is unfortunate that breakfast is served only from 8:00, however we did receive breakfast packs on two days, which made leaving earlier easier. The food... More

I needed a place to stay for a few nights and remembered seeing Phumula before when visiting Marloth. A quick Google for a number to call and I keep going back. Excellent food and the beers cold! Not much more I need, except of course a decent room with a clean bed! Phumula is my choice every week I go... More
