We had a lovely 3 week holiday in the North East of South-Africa organized by Zazoe Experience. Visited 5 wild reserves and stayed in all 7 days in the ZaZoe lodge. The owners, Rex and Natascha, show great hospitality and their ZaZoe lodge is comfortable, great food and a good starting point for visiting nearby wild reserves as well as... More

very calm small lodge in the bush but only 400m away from the road. Very friendly host, good communal kitchen, bar and brai opportunity. We would recommend it. A lot of potholes on the road R572 so drive slowly.

We used this lodge as a stopover between Johannesburg and Nata - it is perfectly positioned for this and has 4 border posts in the vicinity. We loved our rondovel and the ambiance of the place. The food was excellent and we really enjoyed Rex's company. I wish we had stayed longer though!

This was arguably the best place we stayed at on our tour of Limpopo and Kruger. We only stayed one night and were thoroughly spoiled with a private game drive through their reserve, a delicious dinner and breakfast. They even said there was no rush for us to leave. If we ever visit this area again we will be staying... More

Two years ago we stayed at ZaZoe for two days. We loved it! Rex, Natascha and the staff did everything to make us feel welcome. The rondavels are nice and clean and the meals were delicious.

The drive from Martins Drift border post was a long one, but we did eventually get there...and on the 30th April no less as it was 'Koninginnedag' - or should I now say "Koningsdag" .... More
