My friend and I stayed at The Sunbird Lodge for 2 weeks.
The location is great. Really close to the Kruger park gate. There are a few restaurants near by and a shopping mall.
Our room was very and comfortable - Air conditioning, fan, fridge, Tea/coffee facilities, comfy beds, a great shower.
The whole Lodge was very clean and neat with lovely African decor..
It was great sunbathing beside the pool and having a swim. There is a bar area and DIY BBQ area. The gardens are beautifully well kept and visited by some stunning birds and lizards.
The best thing about the Lodge would be the hosts/owners Sam and Dave. We felt so welcome and all the staff were really friendly.
Sam and Dave advised us of where to eat, visit and what trips to go on.
We really enjoyed our stay and would love to return one day.
