My husband and I stayed here on the last night of our trip. We were exhausted from safari and wanted a hotel near the airport as we were leaving the next day.
We were extremely impressed by the President Lodge. Jannette is an incredible hostess, as we have only excellent things to say about this lodge.
We were greeted at the airport with a sign and driven the 10 min to the lodge. On arrival we were impressed by how much has gone into security. We felt very safe here. We were greeted warmly by Jannette and shown to our room which was the luxury suite. It is amazing.
The king sized bed is outfitted in luxury linens and due to it being our honeymoon draped in flower petals. The air conditioning worked well and the bathroom is super luxurious with a giant 2 (5?!) person tub and separate shower. We were encouraged to take a dip in the outdoor pool around which the rooms are centered and it was divine in the summer heat.
We had booked dinner there as we had heard the food was great and we were too tired to leave the lodge. It was honestly one of the best meals we had in South Africa. It was home cooked, but absolutely top notch. The drinks were very reasonably priced and there was an honesty bar in our room as well. Breakfast the next morning was actually the best we had on our whole trip. Everything was delicious and cooked exactly to order.
Overall, for the price, location, amenities, and hospitality, we were absolutely thrilled with the President Lodge and would stay there again in a heartbeat.
