I stayed at the lodge in January 2017 with my wife and two children for 3 nights. The lodge is well located very close to the Kruger Gate. We stayed in the Safari House. Check in was swift and good. Staff could be a bit more welcoming though- usually a smile and a welcome drink would do the trick. The...

During our visit to kruger park, we stayed in this lodge. The lodge is quite big, but even it is a real resort, you are welcomed very personal. After every game drive, there was someone waiting to ask how it was! The restaurant is very good, and the rooms are very 'african style'. Liked our stay!

We booked our stay through booking.com, and as usual the information provided there was a bit lacking in substance. We ended up having two eight-bed houses for a total of eight people, which was a bit excessive. The houses were very nice, with their own kitchenettes if you wanted to cook yourself. There was a Spar nearby, so easy to...

Always a feast to be back at Sefapane and this time with a great crew of friends. We had a huge house on the lake at our disposal. After one night at Sefapane, we moved on to River Lodge for Game Drive and Sundowners. Spend a perfect afternoon on the deck overlooking the river followed by Sundowners in the Park....

We stayed 2 nights in Sefapane in a nice 2 person lodge. Diner and breakfast was very good and staff was very friendly. They were also helpful when we had some problems with our rental car. The full day game drive was very interesting and recommendable for people without game drive experience.

The rooms and cottages are very clean, large and nice and the reception is very friendly and helpful. Food in restaurant is also very good. The prices for safaris in Krüger are almost double than when booked directly in Krüger National Park! And because of the position between high traffic roads it is very loud.
