My brother and I reserved a weekend at the lodge that included meals and two game rides. When we arrived, we had an "orientation" pf sorts. What they need is your release of liability. What was not communicated well how this lodge worked...meal times (9:00, 1:00, 7:00) - all variable, game rides at 5:30 am and 4:00 pm. We took a quick game ride at 4 pm....but saw only animals from far away. The driver stopped when he wanted and didn't seem to understand about the views those in the back would have. Doing this for years, I would expect more information about the area....I know he tried. Day 2 we decided not to stay on th Mjejane property but to drive ourselves through the Kruger Park. Wonderful!!! The lodge made us breakfast and lunch packs and a cooler of drinks. Apparently, you pay for drinks on Mjejane game drives and at meals. We were not charged for drinks in the cooler. When we returned for dinner, we didn't know we were to eat outside around a fire with all lodgers at one time...so we had to wait for folks to return from the lodge game drive to eat. It was odd. We had to keep clarifying that we would go on the morning Mjejane game drive but Simon kept adding confusing details trying to sell us a driver for Kruger. We finally said what we thought had been correct. He could have really messed up our next day. The rooms were comfortable, the showers were great and the view on the river was relaxing. We saw more animals at THE Kruger park rather than at the adjacent property of Mjejane but the rides around Mjejane made for a nice break for my brother who drove.
