We stayed here for two nights before connecting up to a group tour. We'd stayed in many places beforehand during our trip through Sth Africa & were somewhat disturbed at the complete lack of security around the Game Lodge. The fencing was inadequate & the cleaning staff left the windows to the rooms wide open - anyone could have walked into the property & entered a room through the window.
The lodge does provide a free airport transfer service, however it is not promoted on their website. They will pick you up when you call but drop off is at their convenience.
We paid the lodge 280 rand for a lift to a nearby mall & back to then be told we had to be picked up within two hours because it suited them. We were nearly at the mall when the driver was told to turn back to pick up more people. We were leaving for an 8 day safari the next day & needed to grab some last minute things & quite simply ran out of time & couldn't get the things we needed.
Some of the staff were pleasant & helpful while others were just plain rude.
Our cold water tap didn't work, the TV barely worked, there was no safe in the room & we were told to leave the outside light on at night so they could watch for intruders - perhaps they should invest in a proper secure fence!!!!
I felt unsafe at night & I was worried about leaving my belongings in the room. We couldn't wait to get out of there.
