My hubby and I were supposed to travel to Canada from South Africa, but that weekend the Vulcano errupted and all flights were canceled! We waited for flights that whole week, but no luck and our trip was inevitably postponed. After a emotional rolercoaster of a week, he loaded me in the car and said "lets just getaway"...to my surprise he found a little piece of heaven, a sanctuary for us for the weekend....Maqueda lodge.
We have visited the Kruger park religiously every year, but this was the first year we could not get any accomodation inside the park because of SA hosting the FIFA world cup, and everything is fully booked - to our surprise Maqueda Lodge in Marloth park is the perfect place to stay, right next to the park.
Our day basically consisted of waking up to a srumptuous breakfast, game viewing till dawn, coming home to the lodge and be greeted by friendly faces, and more than 4star quality and comfortable accomodation. We would have a sundowner - engage in great conversation with the few visiting guests from abroad, and then have dinner together and share a great bottle of wine.
We felt right at home, and the owners of the lodge took great pride in personal service. From the rooms, to the table, to the food - really nothing to complain about.
We will definitely return, and make more wonderful memories!More
