The deck is a lovely place to relax, the pool is small and rather tired looking, but will cool... More

Great lodge located at the edge of the Kruger park. At breakfast on the first day we saw rhinos and during lunch the second day there were elephants at the river. The accommodation is super clean and the people are really friendly.

We keep coming back as we feel at home. Staff members are very friendly, food is good, rooms very comfortable and the lovely deck is the perfect place to relax. It is situated between the two entry gates of the Kruger National Park.

This was a very clean and comfortable lodge with a beautiful landscape over looking the Sabie river. Helpful and friendly staff who are happy to engage in a conversation. I was surprised they even washed my car without me requesting. Comfortable bedding on par with a decent 4 star hotel, clean towels and clean toilet. No TV. Dinner and breakfast... More

staff went beyond the call of duty to ensure our stay was comfortable. Lynet was superb. carwash and other small things were thoughtful. the spotlight over the sabie river enabling us to see hippo and elephant in the evenings was awesome.

Sabie river has a policy of an advance payment but this had not been deducted from us and apparently they cannot... More

We had a great stay of 4 nights at the lodge. Everyday we had hippo"s and elephants in front of the lodge playing in the Sabie river. This made the experience even better. We had a great room with a lovely bed! Highly recommended!

Only issue that anyone would have is the close proximity with the main road, the site would be perfect if you couldn't hear the noise from the road and the village across the road. Food and staff friendliness was outstanding.
