We spent a night at Chestnut Country Lodge after a week in the Kruger Park and it was a great choice. Christine is a lively and professional host and added tremendously to our experience. We had asked for fish for dinner and were served suoerbly cooked local trout . Breakfast was excellent with a large choice and cooked to order. Our room was spacious and had all the necessary amebnities. A pity that we had to leave after only one night. We'd love to visit again. Thanks Christine for a lovely stay :)

Good, typical South African lodge, well situated to visit Panoramaroute and Kruger. Very nice view from the terrace whist enjoying breakfast and/or aperitif. Great hospitality by local staff and new management, Jacomien and Beukes. Good "cold" and "warm" breakfast and we also enjoyed the 3 course dinners. On Friday they organised a "braai" and the surprise visit of the local group of dancers and singers during the aperitif on this evening was great ! We stayed in a suite with inside and outside shower. Some of the rooms were recently refurbished. Special thanks to Beukes for his valued knowledge and advise regarding Panorama route and Kruger and also the fine beer tasting !

The lodge has a beautiful and big garden that is prefect for relaxing. From the terrace you will have a scenic view over valleys with macadamia trees, which is even more beautiful in the early morning when the sun rises.
The highlight for us was the staff who welcomed us warmly, helped us with any questions and even prepared very delicious vegan breakfast and dinner for us.

Our stay at Chestnut Country Lodge has been great. Their Staff is very friendly and make you feel home immediately. Especially John and his wife, who took care of the lodge during our stay, were extremely helpful with planning our trip through the panorama route. The rooms and garden are beautiful for relaxing and you can feel like in your own private summer house. The breakfast and dinner were great. The media in Germany is not always positive about South Africa, therefore we came with reservations. However it was completely the opposite and our expectations were well exceeded. We can only highly recommend to come to South Africa, especially now, since there are not so many tourists yet.

I have been staying at Chestnut Country Lodge every time I visit Hazyview, which is about 15 years. I highly recommend Chestnut, it is a beautiful location, excellently run and always am sorry to leave. Their food is excellent . I usually go into Kruger for the day and if I go early they give an excellent packed breakfast. On other days if you want to just laze at the Lodge, it is very restful and has a beautiful swimming pool around which you can relax. Highly recommended.

A beautiful, tranquil setting with a lovely, forested mountain backdrop. We felt very welcomed by Jacomine, the manager, and found our accommodations excellent. Room rates include delicious meals served in a covered patio. Chestnut Country Lodge is near Kruger National Park and we were able to spend one full day at the park and the next day in a gorgeous area called Blyde River Canyon. They are also very close to Elephant Whisper where you can have an experience with live elephants.

Thanks a million for the gracious review! We were so delighted to host the 4 of you, since we do not often receive guests from the USA. We look forward to welcoming more Americans here in our peaceful little corner of Mpumalanga!

A suprise to find that they have no tv’s in any of the rooms. Only tv is in an open lounge. Supper is only one choice so if you don’ t eat what is on the menu you have to travel to town to buy supper. No aircon also which is also not common in the lowveld as it gets very hot during summer.

Our family of four stayed at Chestnut Country Lodge for two nights while we toured the Panorama Route. The staff was friendly and very helpful. They went above and beyond to ensure that we had what we needed. The views are wonderful, the food was delicious, and the rooms were very comfortable. It is a great location, conveniently located to Panorama Route and Kruger.

Chestnut is one of our favorite lodges, whenever we travel to Kruger or need to exhale from our busy lives, this is our go to place. We have so many warm and beautiful memories from out time there. The rooms are comfortable, the environment stunning and the staff are what really make it one of the best experiences. Warm and engaging. Once again we felt special and embraced at this beautiful lodge.

We travelled as a family of 3 and really enjoyed our stay here. The prompt is very well maintained and great value. Chris was there to receive us and provided good advice of local places to visit. They also catered very well for my vegetarian diet . Great place to stay on the way to Kruger.
