Stayed seven days and had the best trip of a life time. From the time we were picked up and arrived are the lodge we were treated like royalty. The all the staff( Robert, Chase Rick and the wonderful chef Julia) were a group that any other country that we stayed at could take lessons.
Would recomend this to any one. A wonderful country and people to meet and see.
Keep up the good work. Hope to be back soon.

Just absolutely loved it. From the beautiful rooms, lovely surrounds and friendly staff members. Our game drives were marvellous with our informative guides - Robert, Chase and Rick. Big hugs to the delightful Julia and her 'surprise' desserts. The personal touch sets this place apart. Hope to be back very soon.

A very welcoming place to stay. Lovely staff who are very attentive and knowledgeable. Amazing food. Zebras and other wildlife just wandering by makes it extra special.
A special thankyou to Robert - we learnt so much and saw so much thanks to you

Stayed two nights at the lodge and had a great time. Staff was very welcoming, from Rick who picked us up at the airport and took us on a great sundowner drive, Chase who took us on an excellent game drive in Kruger where we got to see all the big 5 in one day, and of course Julia's wonderful meals. Special thanks to Vic and all the staff for the birthday dinner and drinks on our second night. Will be returning.

Hi Andy,

Great meeting you all and glad you enjoyed your stay even though it was quite short. Hopefully you will make it a longer stay next time and perhaps bring some of your mates with you. We can always celebrate your next birthday :).

Hope all goes well in Cape Town and keep in touch.

All the best,

Fantastic lodge for a Kruger visit. The staff and location makes you feel at home the minute you arrive. The rooms, food and game drives in one word perfect. A lodge with a personal touch. Keep up the good work
