“Great location, Classy place, but...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2013

We set up our week here through RCI about a year in advance, and after studying all the writeups about it we were excited upon our arrival. Then we started our journey to our 2 bedroom condo, passing lots of gorgeous locations. We finally found our unit, all the way at the end of the property. Unfortunately, the RCI international exchange units were not like all the rest. We found a very cramped out-of-the-way unit - not at all what we expected.

The staff though, was very helpful. While they had no other units available for us, they and we worked with the local RCI agent who quickly found a 2 bedroom condo in nearby Sanbonini Resort - a smaller resort but much more to our liking and expectations.

The unit they had for us in Kruger Lodge looked clean - it was just in no way what we expected.

Room Tip: I recommend that if you are exchanging through RCI, verify what kind of unit you'll be in.

We stayed at Hippo House at the Kruger Park Lodge for two days. Hippo House sleeps eight people and is comfortable and well-equipped for self-catering guests. The Lodge has excellent facilities for the whole family, as well as a hippo hide where you can watch the hippos cavorting at sunset. Staff at the Lodge are helpful and friendly. The Lodge is close to the Kruger Park.

Luxury self catering cabanas with BBQ and wooden deck to watch wildlife like birds and buck. Buck wandering freely on the well kept premises. Swimming pool, tennis court, lapa, golf, restaurant with bar and everything you expect from a golf estate. The hippo watch is out of this world. Close to Kruger National Park, where you can go and see the big five and do a tour of the Panorama Route. Close to a big shopping mall with restaurants etc. high standards an friendly staff and management.

Stayed at self cater 'block' set on outer edges of the chalets. 2 beds which were clean, organised and laid out. 2 bathrooms, 2 beds, kitchen/sitting room arrangements. Good fixtures and fittings with nice beds. Saw impala, hippos and many insects while dining or BBQ outside on the balcony. Very close to kruger which was great for an early start to do a safari tour (starting at 5.30 am). Close to Perry's Bridge trading post and also supermarkets. Handy and yet quiet and relaxing.
Pain in the neck literally was the sleeping policemen for the speed bumps which are all set at an angle across the roads which are difficult to go over except 1 wheel at a time. After a week these do become annoying. Grounds very well maintained and lovely.
Good standard. Reception/restaurant ok.

Large,3 and 2 bedroom chalets are well worth staying at. One can self cater ( the chalets have well equipped kitchens and a barbecue ) or eat in the restaurant. The grounds are attractive and there are a number of sports amenities including tennis and golf on a 9 hole Gary Player designed course. Unfortunately this year the greens were in poor shape. There is a great hippo and bird hide and some excellent walks on the property. Very secure and close to shops and many restaurants as well as being only 12km from the Kruger Park Phabeni Gate makes it ideal for a weeks holiday.

Room Tip: Ask for a chalet on the river

Met our expectations. Comfortable and cozy. The place advertises for six but it was a tight squeeze for the five of us. Everything was extremely comfortable and clean but there were only four chairs in the dining room and same with outside. We stayed in 601 and it is far away from almost everything. I found the lay out of the whole place a little confusing, lots of turn offs and little side roads, and the pool was bit of a hike. We loved our first sighting of hippos here at the lodge. Unforgettable experience of driving back to our apartment one evening and a crocodile hanging out in the middle of the road! The manager in reception was extremely accommodating and helpful with car rental mishap. Sunsets gorgeous and location of being outside Krugar unbeatable. We had a broken hot water kettle and they responded and fixed the problem immediately, same with learning how to turn on the TV. We used the self service laundry facilities and they were fine, however a little far from where we were staying and altho on site required driving there. We were on the ground floor but could certainly hear or neighbors activities.

Room Tip: Try to avoid apartments in 600 building. They are way out of the way and look smaller than others.

Good quality time share right next to Kruger Park which is great for young families and older couples alike. Not really ideal for teenage kids however, as there was no entertainment organised despite it being private school holidays in August. We loved the venue, but it was just a bit quiet for our teenage kids. Would recommend for older people and families with young kids as there are many amenities to keep them entertained.
