We came through for a Boudoir Romantic Picnic at Willow Tree Lodge to celebrate our 10 years anniversary. The lodge is situated in a private area away from the hassle and noise. It was truly worth the money and a stunning experience. Would be back for sure

Took my parents away for the weekend for moms 70th. Really enjoyed it! Stay friendly and beautiful surroundings next to the Crocodile river. Host predicted the rain 100% as well, so the picnic next to the river turned out well!

The spa bath is to small to fit two and was very uncomfortable. The mosquito net above the bed has holes in it and was dusty. The outside chairs under the umbrella was full of dust, dry bird poo and black worms. The hang mock was also full of black worms, nesting there already. It was definitely not cleaned before...
