Ekuthuleni is a small lodge of 12 cottages on the banks of a river 10 Kms from the main road, down an unpaved road. There is no restaurant (the cottages are self catering and self contained) but a very small shop for a small selection of essentials. This is not a place if you need to be entertained. BUT if...

We stayed over in a chalet for 3 days. The resort is superbly run with very attentive staff. There is some game on the farm. The units are comfortable and well appointed - my wife was pleasantly surprised that even clothes pegs are supplied. They offer game drives but game is difficult to spot due to the thick bush. Tip...

Peaceful, clean, spacious and amazing sightings from our veranda! We have tried other self catering places and always end up back here for our winter holiday once a year as we can't find anywhere else that compares! The reserve at Ekuthuleni is a bit of a bust, but the Kruger is really close and we have had incredible sightings every... More

This looks like a fantastic place to stay and use as day visitor launch pad into the Kruger park, while still allowing for kids to run wild without the constraints ofthem being eaten by wild animals. The houses are situated on the Olifants River which passes each cottage. Ours had 3 rooms. Two en-suit and one loft type room. The... More

It was by far the best place we had been too in a while. Comfortable, spacious, clean and well maintained. The housekeeper and housekeeping exceptional. About 14 chalets on the Olifants river. You can view the hippos, crocodiles from the patio, which is fitted with a dining table and chairs. AIrconditioning was superb as it was hot in November//December. Pool... More

There is good and bad about Ekuthuleni Lodge but the bad left such a sour taste in my mouth that I had to rate the entire stay based on that part of the experience. Read to the end to understand what we experienced and why one incident ended with us leaving with the words...."Never Again!" Overseas visitors were exposed to... More

We stayed in the caravan park. Lovely shaded stand with a beautiful wooden deck on the banks of the Olifants River. A very peaceful and tranquil place. Lots of game in and around the park. There is also a small game farm with plenty antelope, giraffe and wildebeest. We heard lions during the nights in the far and the wildebeest... More

We could not fault annything with accomodation. Friendly people, from the gardeners to the managers. We spent lots of time on the veranda watching the hippos in the river and lots of birds around. Nice and quiet evenings with wildebees grazing around the chalet. Ekuthuleni is self catering 3 bedroom chalets not a hotel. Restaurant close by and Hoedspruit is... More

Comfortable accommodation and plenty of wild life on your stoep (porch). Peaceful and quiet but within driving distance of town and several amenities like the Kruger National Park and the Boabab Tree Restaurant
