You need to experience this. The place is family run and everything is being taken care of in a lovely manner. This makes it very unique and the perfect location for a relaxed stay at Kruger Park.
The food is amazing and Etienne, the cook, should be listed in Guide Michelin. The overall athmosphere in the lodge is great, the lodge only has a couple of rooms so you can connect to other travelers if you wish (e.g. during joint dinner) and also have quiet minutes, Maqueda arranges for game drives/safaris at Kruger and bushwalks (24hrs reservation ahead is recommended). Travel to Kruger Park Crocodile Gate by car is 15mins, Nearby the lodge there is a visitor lookout overlooking the the crocodile river, where we saw elephants, hippos. crocodiles and lions immediately after our arrival. You will also see animals (monkeys, giraffes, kudus etc) in Marloth Park, the small park next to Kruger Park in which the lodge is located.
We will definitely stay in Maqeda Lodge when we come back to Kruger Park.
