This the beste place, up till now, were we stayed. The ronddavel with the jacuzzie is great. Good bed, big shower and clean! And a lovely aircon.
The food is superb! And the hosts Sonia and Jan are great. And they all do this in Grietjie, in the bush. My comppliments!
We stayed here for 4 nights and this was even too short!. Looking at the elephants at the waterhole and the other animals in Grietjie. And it is close to Phalaborwa gate to have drive trought the Kruger park.

If you drive slowy, it will be no problem to drive up to Casart Game lodge.

We for sure come back again!. Thanks guys for the great stay we had at your place.

Room Tip: Take a rondavel with a jacuzzie.

We stayed at the Casart Game Lodge for 2 nights and were really surprised by the peace and style ( swimming pool ! ) of this lodge in the middle of the bush . The restaurant and lounge were really very stylish . It would have been better if our car would 've been higher on the wheels to get there , but we managed . Sonia and Jan were truly friendly and made us feel like home immediately . Very caring too . When I got a little bit sick , Sonia served me tea with rum , and didn't charge it . When the elephants came drinking at their little pool , Jan came to call us . More than once they asked me how I felt . The service and the food were really top ! And all this for a very reasonable price . They organised a game-drive for us at 6 am with Mike , a guide who really knew everything about the bush ! He served us tea / hot chocolate with cookies in the middle of it ! So , congratulations to Sonia and Jan . Keep this up ! We'll never forget your goodbye when we left !

Me and my wife had another excellent stay at Casart Game Lodge ,
A stay at Casart has got everything you are looking for when visiting South Africa : you're in the middle of the bush with all of the comfort you find in a luxury hotel .
I'm not going to repeat myself for the fourth time so please read my other three reviews on Casart.
We will visit Casart again in march of 2013 .
I want to thank Sonia and Jan for their hospitality.....again.

My boyfriend and I stayed at Casart for 3 nights while visiting Kruger and had an amazing time. We loved how serene the grounds were and our rondavel was private and a perfect romantic getaway. Every meal we had at the lodge was delicious and unique with amazing service all around. It is only an 18 mile drive to the Phelaborwa gate into Kruger which takes about 40 minutes because of the dirt road for the first 7 miles which our rented sedan had no problems navigating. A great place to stay if you want peace and quiet but the added bonus of wildlife coming right up to the lodge to drink from the watering hole. This was a very special place indeed!

My brother and I stayed at the lodge for a week and we must say that it was just OUTSTANDING. Jan made us feel truly welcome. The room was clean and beautiful and had an excellent bed. What really sets this lodge apart is the personal service and the exceptional food. Jan was so kind to arrange several activities for us such as a walking with a tame cheetah, a bushwalk and even a night of camping in big five country. Especially that last one is an unforgettable experience. The food was always freshly prepared and of the highest quality. It was just great.
Thanks once again, Jan, for making our trip exceptional. If we are in the area again we will be back for sure.

We will be back for sure!!

We came back to Casart for the second time and do do know how Jan & Sonia welcome us ? They called us welcome home !! That was amazing to hear, and Jan & Sonia gave us again that wonderful feeling that we were home. A excellent clean rondavel was waiting for us. Sonia spoiled us again with her excellent food. It´s a dream to stay here. Casart Game Lodge will be our second home in SA. Thanks Jan & Sonia for all the effort and the beautiful days.
