“Fabulous!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2009

We had 3 nights at the Isibindi Lodge, and had a marvellous time.

The lodges are really special, and the staff are so welcoming and friendly. The location is superb - walking around the game reserve is great, and we got to see quite a few different types of animals.

Our main reason for chosing the location was the proximity to the Battlefields. The tour organised for us did not disappoint, being very thorough and really informative. Although this was our main reason for chosing the lodge, it offered so much more, and we were really pleased we found it.

The hosts were great and the food was fabulous - one of us was a vegetarian, and we were both really well catered for.

We stayed at the Isibindi Lodge for 2 nights in October and wish it had been longer!

Although the Lodge is located down one of South Africa's secondary roads (sand/rocks!), it was well worth the journey. Staying in a Zulu hut and enjoying a traditional dinner provided a great opportunity to learn about the Zulu culture and a different way of life.

The staff were friendly and fun, and the meals (whether Western or Zulu) were excellent.

They also kindly booked a battlefields tour for us, which was one of the highlights of our visit to South Africa.

This is a beautiful part of the country and should definitely not be missed!
