I had 4 wonderful days staying at Greenfire Lodge - the set up is brilliant with luxurious accomodation, fabulous food and awesome game drives, including a full day at Kruger NP. I was really lucky to have Isaac as my guide - his tracking ability is awesome and can answer any question - ably assisted by Anel & Kayla -... More

Absolutely loved this lodge. Staff were superb, friendly, welcoming and very helpful. The food was plenty and of a high standard. Having no wifi and tv makes it the perfect break to appreciate where you are. Isaaks game drives were very informative, successful and with his sense of humor and great stories, highly enjoyable. Was great to go for a... More

From the moment you arrive at the airport and sadly have to leave, the friendly, five star service begins. Each and every staff member is to be congratulated! The rooms are amazing, ceiling to floor glass, modern, clean, private and with viewing decks. One slight drawback, no air con or heating but hey you are in the African bush. They... More

The food is excellant. The tour guides answered all of our questions: plus, we were able to see 4 of the big 5. I will definitely come back to this location. I was a little apprehensive at first. I did not want to sleep in a traditional safari environment; however, the huts were enclosed with the ability to allow floor... More

Great location, excellent guides (very enthusiastic) and very hospidipal staff. Walking tours were brilliant. The food was delicious. Well worth it. In my opinion its better than the main Kruger park which I did many years ago

Greenfire Game Lodge is a contemporary lodge with incredible windows, showing off the river bed. Each room is its own separate "hut", again surrounded with windows. They have a contemporary feel, that will appeal to the urban sophisticate. The food was excellent and they are able to cater for special dietary considerations. Wian, my driver was knowledgeable, friendly and a... More

I stayed at Greenfire for 4 days for a combination walk/drive safari. The accommodation was gorgeous and modern. The staff were superb and the food was delicious. I loved the whole experience. Our guide Wian was very generous with his time and shared his vast knowledge of local culture and wildlife.

We spent four days in this beautiful spot in the greater Kruger. The resort is perfectly blended with the glorious surrounding landscape and it gave us a fantastic opportunity to experience this part of Africa in a very genuine way. The Game Lodge is extremely well managed by Adrian and Kim, but everyone else was extremely welcoming and efficient. From... More

We just came back from spending a 3 Day safari at Greenfire Game Lodge. The service was simply amazing. Everything was taken care of the moment we booked our lodges. Pick up from our hotel room at the Holiday Inn in Jo'burg was prompted via Ashton Tours. The ride was smooth and the periodic rest made the trip shorter than... More
