We recently stayed at the Lodge for 3 nights on an out-of-season special rate which included one game drive within the reserve; we, however, swapped that for an afternoon bush walk. Very little game within the reserve but wonderful to be able to self-drive in our own time within Hluhluwe which is only 15 minutes away; we saw plenty of game there and were able to remain in the park all day if we so wished which made a pleasant change from cold early morning 3 hour game drives. The room was small but adequate with an extremely comfortable bed and we enjoyed sitting on our balcony after dinner savouring the total peace of the forest which is beautiful. An enclosure has been erected for crocodiles right in front of the dining room which has spoilt the scenery; in our opinion a water hole for the buck would have been more pleasing and less smelly! The food was buffet-style - plain but plenty of it and always served by a smiling chef. The staff are to be congratulated on their efficiency and attitude - always ready to help and with a smile; we couldn't fault the service and will definitely return.
