The receptionist almost double charged us for the Riverside Lodge. He was very confused regarding the tariffs. The R165 for breakfast was excessive and we declined. Bar and other snacks also expensive.

This lodge is set in the midst of wonderful nature reserve. Designed for both small and big groups, the lodge offers a relaxing and tranquil experience. We enjoyed the horse ride and riverside hike. You can easily spot big elands scavenging nearby, a fun for kids. The kitchen is fully equipped and the brai stand add the value.

Great place for a retreat. Quiet, calm and with several options of activities. The surrounding scenery was gorgeous and well worth exploring. The lodges were well maintained and had everything required for a self catering break. For those that don´t want to cook, there was a nice restaurant with amazing views in the main Maliba reception building.

The place is located in beautiful valley surrounded by magnificent mountains . I've stayed in the river cottages , can't describe the feeling of waking up in the morning and sitting outside on the veranda. The only reason I give it 4 stars is the restaurant.
