We enjoyed a great traditional South African Sunday Buffet lunch here with friends. The selection of food was good, and the food was very good. A treat on top of the lunch in an typical African game lodge setting was the opportunity to feed the Elephants that they bring up the the restaurant area at around 2pm each Sunday. All... More

Every evening there was a beautiful sunset that I watched from the deck. It was one of the prettiest views I've ever seen. The drinks are very I expensive and delicious as well. I recommend the 'Speeeeeedball'. The food was also incredible, my favorite dish being the ostrich filet covered in a chocolate chili sauce. This is a must try... More

To be accurate, I did not stay at Country Lodge facilities. I was at their adjacent building that houses volunteer´s projects. Despite being a volunteer I did use the hotel´s restaurant and lobby as well and walked around the property extensively. The public areas of the hotel are lovely, safari themed decorated and the staff are nice. The restaurant provided... More

My guests and I stayed in the stable blocks for 4 nights, the rooms are clean and well maintained and the sounds of the lions roaring at night and early morning is brilliant. Well taken care of animals and they are well treated with NO unneeded breeding for expliotation.

We are both fans of the series "Wild at Heart" which is filmed on location in South Africa. In 2013 we decided to go and stay at the lodge where a lot of the filming took place (Glen Afric).

An amazing place close to Johannesburg and Pretoria. Took us 35 minutes from Krugerdorp. An old rustic venue in the bush which is well maintained and serviced by exceptionally friendly staff. If you want an interaction with wild animals, this is the place!

A truly wonderful experience, we have now been back 3 times. Super friendly guides take you by safari vehicle to where the elephants are situated that day, and you can photograph them, touch them,while they are in their own environment.
