I only have one comment about this place. Gordon Ramsey needs to get here and close it. Never in my life such bad experience. You have to fight for towels, coffee and help at reception. Can't complain about service as there are none. Never ever again

I was extremely unimpressed with Ivory Tusk Lodge. The rooms were tiny, poorly ventilated and unbearably hot. The evening buffet was sub-standard in variety and quality. Fellow guests made such a noise that it was impossible to sleep, despite a request to management to tell them to keep it down.

My partner and I checked into the Lodge and was disappointed in the overall stay. When we checked in, which was very time consuming, it took roughly 20 min and we were the only GUESTS at the desk at the time, we received a room which was supposed to be on maintenance, the room had nothing in it and one...

Visiting family in Tzaneen we needed somewhere safe and central which was easy to find. This place is just after town off the main highway and well sign posted. Its a bit basic and the furnishings are pretty grim, but it served its purpose as we literally just needed to sleep there. For us its location was the key and... More
