Stayed here in January 2012 for 10 days. Excellent accommodation in african style private lodges with beautiful ensuite bathroom, outdoor shower, pateo to sit and watch the birdlife in the morning around the dam, landscaped gardens to walk around. Little touches like beautiful shower gel and body lotion, freshly baked cookies and ground coffee in the room each day, turn down at night with chocolates on the pillow make it more special. Staff helpful and friendly and the on-site owners wonderful people, nothing is too much trouble for them. Breakfast each day consisted of every choice you could possibly want and drinks in the bar at night and dinner wonderful. Going back in December 2012 and taking our children and grandson with us to experience "our Africa" we grew up in. Considering the crime situation in South Africa it is a very safe environment at Nkanga. The lodge is very close to Johannesburg airport so ideal place to stay before and after air travel where you will receive a warm welcome..
