We were so looking forward to our stay at Pezulu and horribly disappointed! We booked nearly 12 months in advance and it was a very pleasant experience with lots of info and contact from Lydia. We booked 3 of the treehouses - Dream, Mountain View and the Honeymoon one. All were absolutely amazing with superb views and spotlessly clean. All... More

My family and I were very dissapointed with our stay. Stayed in "Knobthorn" tree house - it was so hot we couldn't be in it between 10am and 6pm. It was hotter inside than sitting in the direct sun. Was like a sauna!! The outside area was in direct sun almost all day, so the tree house was a no-go... More

Though the rate is reasonable, We only managed to see 3 zebras and a Kudo which came in during our 2 days stay. It is a private game reserve and as such, the animals may be limited. We took this opportunity to travel in Kruger National Park where we see herds and herds of animals. Perhaps, the reviews I read... More

Awesome place to spend some romantic time with your love one. Stunning food. Close to the Kruger National Park and Hoedspruit. No big 5 on the premises of Pezulu but you can spot giraffe and buck. The staff are friendly and helpful, real South African experience

Great location , really did not mind the few km dirt road that leads to the lodge , it is like that for most safari locations, as it brings you in the heart of the reserve . Wile driving you encounter a great variety of animals already , giraffes being there nearly every time we drove by. The tree house... More

Great food and dinner atmosphere, great tree house, great bush walks and game drive - all in all: perfect! We stayed here for two nights in Nov 2015 and would definitively recommend it!!! Our treehouse was a smaller one (2-3 people) with bathroom outside (don't leave your stuff there or the monkeys will take it ;-) ). In the evening... More

We stayed at Pezulu as our friends were getting married at a nearby lodge. It was fantastic! The tree house (tree mansion, really) was beautiful, spacious, and secluded. There was a watering hole in front so we could watch zebras, Impala and ostriches come to drink and bathe from our balcony. Food was great, our room was cleaned every day.... More

This lodge has it all, a unique layout with Tree houses built into the trees themselves, which gives you a real feeling of being in nature and at one with your environment. They contain all the mod cons you need and expect but at the same time give you a real safari experience. One morning we had coffee on the... More

I spent a few days at Pezulu recently and it was nice to have most of the comforts of home along with spectacular surroundings. My cabin was clean and comfortable and I had a covered deck to myself. The bathroom was unique in that it was immediately outside my cabin door but it was a separate space, with a curtain... More
