Great food, great hospitality. Only 'stuff-up' was when an "over-eager" porter loaded 1 of the customer's bags on the wrong bus.(since we were going to the same place, 1 day later than the people on that bus, the customer & his bag were re-united a day later) Generally we had a good time

what a beautiful tropical surprise in the middle of nothing. A beautiful lodge with very spacious rooms and a large bathroom. It is clean and the owners are very hospitable. The food is delicious and you will stay a personal touch because the owners are genuinely interested in the people who visit their lodge. Respect for nature and the animals... More

A fantastic overnight lodge situated in the bush wit roaming wild animals. A night around the boma fire with your loved ones makes the ideal setting for those everlasting memories. A very popular overnight stop for tour groups on their way to the Kruger national park. We overnight here for three days and really enjoyed my stay. The rooms were... More

We only stayed overnight but the stay was amazing. We did an evening game drive and a full day safari to Kruger NP. The staff were very friendly and the owners in particular were inviting and welcoming. The lodge and surrounding gardens were beautiful.

Placed 15km from Hoedspruit Airport in the Northern part of Kruger Park makes it the most comfortable way to go remote directly. The camp has a luxury sense of simplicity with local architecture, wild game integrated, lovely staff and a great pool, but the ever presence of the German couple Nicole & Manfred makes this place outstanding. We have been... More

Because of the ideal location within less than an hour drive to the Kruger National Park (Orpen Gate), to the Blyde Dam of Blyde River Canyon and to the Panorama Route and because of the German language spoken by the owners, I keep coming back to Kubu for the past years. Having been here several times, the personal welcome of... More

Coming back to this lode you have to realise tha if offers value for money. even if the distance to Kruger Park is 80 km awa it gives you the bush feelings and ideal to visit all the sights of Mpumalanga. Rooms are large and offers privacy and offers bushfeelings. But beware sometimes you have big groups.

Lovely owners running a well maintained and ever expanding lodge. Rooms were comfortable, although mine was a little dark and more lighting would have been helpful. The food was great and the staff were very friendly
