Having found Sunbird Lodge via the internet, we were worried as we did not have recommendations. What a surprise. Lovely Accommodation and the best was we did not have a problem parking our Mobi Lodge in secure parking in the enclosed garden. Dave and Sam were lovely hosts and we highly recommend this lodge.
My stay at Sunbird Lodge was again an excellent experience. The food was great and the service professional. Dave really knows how to make this one of my favorite lodges. We will always stay at Sunbird Lodge when we are in Phalaborwa area.
We stayed at Sunbird lodge overnight on our way to the Kruger Park. It is a beautiful setting with lovely gardens and comfortable accommodation with everything you need. The host is very friendly and accommodating. We had breakfast before we left and they packed us a lunch. All the food well prepared, tasty and value for money.
We are so happy to be able to visit again after the last 2 years of covid travel restrictions. For us arriving at Sunbird and the always friendly welcome from Dave signals the start to our vacation. We love to visit Sunbird, it is very comfortable and conveniently located for our Kruger visit. We always appreciate the time and attention Dave gives us, he is so very genuine and we always enjoy catching up with him.

We stayed at Sunbird Lodge last April, which we enjoyed. The owner was very nice and helpful by explaining the activities & restaurants in the area. The room & garden was nicely maintained & clean. And breakfast was good as well.
The Sunbird Lodge was the perfect overnight stay for us on route to the KNP- literally 5 min's from Phalaborwa gate. Dave was the perfect host- warm, friendly and went out of his way to accommodate us, thank you! Will definetely book there again in future.
My boyfriend and I stayed there in the summer of 2019. That was a great experience, with nice accomodation, it´s well located and has great breakfast. By the way the staff is very friendly and helpful.
Sunbird Lodge is a great bed & breakfast run by a very friendly family man. This is a home away from home with great breakfast options and comfortable, cozy, clean rooms with a much needed aircon to shelter you from the Palabora heat. Just 2 minutes from the town, everything is super close. Much recommended!
