We had a wonderful stay at Sunbird Lodge. We were due to stay somewhere else but they had made an error with our booking. Dave at Sunbird saved the day and we stayed there instead. We were pleased in the end for the error as Sunbird Lodge was by far a much nicer place to stay. Lovely big room and bathroom, wonderful grounds to roam around in, nice size swimming pool and peaceful outdoor seating area with settees. Dave and his wife are wonderful hosts and nothing was too much trouble. We would stay again and would definitely recommend as a great place to stay.
Really nice welcome from our host, and lots of infos given. Very Nice garden with a relaxing swiming pool. Next to Phalaborwa Gate entrance of Kruger Park (only 5 minutes drive) Nice and large rooms Excellent Breakfast. Really, a nice place to relax before or after Kruger Park. Safe place, nice surroundings.
The place is quite big, and Dave allows you to roam free in his massive garden with braai facilities. I have stayed there twice this year and found it worth the trip both times. The last time Dave explained all the routs into the Kruger natural reserve park and his information was spot on. Also thanks Dave for going the extra mile in accommodation.
Very nice place yo visit. Nice rooms, nice breakfast, very gently host, they allways find the way to help. We forget some documents and they send them all by email. People here was born for this kind of job. Thanks a lot for everything
We had a wonderful time at Sunbird Lodge, our host Dave was very approachable if we needed anything he had it at our beck and call. The rooms we're spacious and they had both air-con and ceiling fans in each room. All the amenities such as bbq, swimming pool a bar and fridge/freezer we available for us to take cans of drink, bottled water, ice and other alcoholic drinks to our rooms during the day and before the bar closed at 9 in the evening, guests we're to write their surname and the name of the unit on a pad, so Dave knew how much we took from the bar and charge it to our room. I liked the names of the rooms as they we're named after the local native birds. All in all we enjoyed our stay and will return in the near future. Peter & Sheryl Stanford (Elder & Sister Stanford )
