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.

I got a bit shivery at first but calmed myself down with what always works best "my secret" dinner and breakfast were delicious & awesome. First time there and was not disappointed

Poor reception. Bar staff weren't very accommodating. Unfriendly in general.... won't be going back there! Rooms were clean at least, didn't have everything we needed for self catering either. Best thing was the breakfast!

Spacious rooms but not clean. The bathroom was covered with mold and that is dangerous for the health. This is more a 3 star standard lodge. Quality of the food was very average and sometimes not good. Staff is friendly and helpful.
