“Total relaxation”
Reviewed May 12, 2014

I have been to LIndani several times, and this past weekend went with a group of friends to stay at their Motseng Lodge. It really is a wonderful place to unwind - all the comforts of home (dishwasher and coffee plunger!), they think of all the little things that make you feel welcome.
Walking and cycling are great, and coming across eland, kudu and impala as you thread your way through the bush is wonderful.

Room Tip: I have stayed both at Motseng and the Loft, and all rooms are great.

We recently visited Lindani Thabeng Bush Lodge in Vaalwater, which exceeded all my expectations.........What a quaint, neat and clean lodge! We did some mountain biking, some walking trails and the beauty of the bushveld was undeniably awesome. This is an ideal retreat for small or large groups. We will be back! Exceptional! Saw so many animals!

This is the second time I had gone to Lindani, and I was not disappointed. On both occasions I was there on a writing retreat and I achieved my goal every time. The first time we stayed at a lodge, which unfortunately is no longer part of Lindani. The second time around we stayed at Motseng, which is amazing if you are travelling in a large group. The rooms were clean and all the amenities were in working order. The staff, which we didn't see often because we opted for no service, when they did come to our lodge, were friendly and polite. If you want a place where you can escape the hustle and bustle of the city, then I suggest you go to Lindani.

Three of us, 2 from the UK and 1 from Zim, have been working long long hours on a large technology project based in Johannesburg. We took advantage of a pause in the project plan to get a way for a weekend. And what a break. We arrived under observation from a smalll herd of impala snuggled down for the night close to the lodge, woke to the sight of Warthogs rooting juse beyond the garden fence. Had a hike up the hills, biked a trail, a game drive and a self guided game walk. Each activity ending with a dip in the pool. For the evenings we fired up the brai for Boerewors, sadza and beer under the stars. Lovely friendly helpful people. Lots to see. A great place to recharge your batteries.

We spent 2 months travelling in South Africa, and Lindani was our favorite place we stayed. You stay our your own lodge and you can decide for yourself whether to cook or not. We chose to have them provide dinners. The dinners were very tasty, and there was plenty of leftover food for lunch the next day. We stayed at the Stone House and the view from the yard is over a wide open stretch of savannah where you might see gnu or hartebeest. The kids loved the pool (even though is was cold due to it being winter). The staff was very friendly and helpful. We did a driving safari, a walking safari, rented mountain bikes, and were even invited over to the owners house at night to see the bush babies and genet that hang out in their trees.

Room Tip: stone house was excellent!

We stayed at The Loft weekend 10 May 2013. I would like to mention that Sina at reservations were very kind and understanding. My children could not make it for the weekend because of circumstances that they could not help for. I explained to Sina at reservations and she e-mailed me a confirmation for a next stay at Lindani Lodge. It was wonderful to know that I did not had to loose my money. We stayed at the Loft three times already and at Alden cottage. Our next stay
will be The Stone house. Lindani Lodge is amazing, clean and very well equipped. A bunch of flowers welcomes you everytime you arrive. Lots of animals to see and beautiful picnic places on the farm. All the personnel are friendly and helpful!!

Room Tip: All the houses on the farm have their own pools which is wonderful and private for families!!

This is an absolutely fantastic destination. We were here last in August 2012 and have been here on average twice a year for the last 10 years. We have stayed at every lodge except Alden over the years and love each one.

I challenge any guest to find a speck of dust in the lodges. The cleanliness is beyond excellent. They are well equipped with everything you need and with those that you might have left at home. The staff are extremely friendly and go out of their way to help should one need it. Everything in the lodges is of superior quality and the interior decor is spectacular.

The reserve has an excellent amount of animals without the reserve looking over-grazed. A peaceful bush experience is what one can expect to find here. The lodges are situated far enough from each other that you will think you are completely alone here.

There are great walks and cycling routes.

The road to Vaalwater has been rebuilt and makes the drive very easy and the road north from Vaalwater is also very good.

Absolutely great value for money. An experience that will make any new visitor want to keep coming back as we have.
