We enjoyed a pleasant stay at your lodge which was a home from home experience. Andrew and Auriol were the perfect hosts from the initial welcome to the final departure, The apartments were neat and very comfortable and thanks for the natural spring water we enjoyed every day. The peaceful surroundings and relative closeness to the park and other places of interest has convinced us to want to return as soon as possible.

We, a family from Holland, had a very nice stay at nwanakalile lodge. The appartments are nice, clean en spacieus. Auriol and Andrew are very helpfull by finding your way. The sabey coffee valley on the other site of the road is absolutely wonderful for lunch or coffee. We enjoyed very much our stay before driving into the Kruger. Thanks very much Auriol and Andrew for 3 days at your place at the beginning of our holiday.

We stayed 3 nights at this establishment in a couples apartment (No 3) and found the accommodation to be spotless and very comfortable and with everything one would need for self catering and at a very affordable price. It is close to all tourist attractions including the Kruger Park. The forest walk at the lodge with resident dog Mac leading the way was great and a great way to work up an appetite for a sundowner on your private verandah overlooking the peace and tranquility of the bush in the area. Unfortunately we did not meet the owners Andrew and Auriol as they were away but the couple they had managing their lodge in their absence were very friendly and helpful. We also liked the fact that Nwanakalile Lodge is a small establishment and highly recommend it as an accommodation choice.

Never been to such a peaceful establishment. It is well located close to all amenities. Should you feel like adventure sports eg. river rafting, hot-air balloon, hiking etc. All this is just outside your gate! The scenery-amazing, the people- real people! Jackie and I Loved it! Coming with the whole family + friends soon! Thank you Andrew and Auriol! From John

We absolutely enjoyed our stay here. The place, just 10 minutes drive from Hazyview, has an "outdoors feel" to it. It is close to the main attractions like the Kruger Park, Blyde River Canyon, etc. Apartment number 1 is very spacious and has huge bedroom. The owners are especially lovely. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely be staying there again,

Stayed at Nwanakalile for 9 nights in March and had an absolutely lovely time. The lodge was very private, it has its own dipping pool and a dining area with spectacular views of the forest, we did stay in the premium lodge but it was still very reasonably priced, the other 5 lodges have the use of the shared bigger pool which looked fabulous. The lodge was very well equipped with really good quality kitchen utensils, crisp, clean bedding and bathing and also has his and hers showers!!! with fantastic water pressure!

It is so close to Kruger Park. We went in for 2 days in the middle of our stay and stayed over night which was fantastic, the game viewing was amazing.

Was surprised to find I felt like I was going home when we got back to Nwanakalile (although it is much bigger than our apartment in Europe). Auriol and Andrew where very welcoming and helpful.

My favorite thing to do was chill in the evening with a glass of wine and watch the moon come up while listening to the sounds of the bush, we even heard the cry's of a bush-baby (aka Nwanakalile) one evening.

I could have easily stayed another 9 nights and can't wait to go back. Highly recommended if you enjoy tranquility and wildlife with all the luxuries!!
