“Awesome place!!!”
Reviewed January 12, 2012

I just spent 6 nights at Gecko Creek Wilderness Lodge - originally we were only supposed to spent three nights there but it we enjoyed it there so much that we decided to extend our stay. The cabins were very cozy, the bathrooms and showers really clean and the owners very, very friendly and always helpfull. I dont have to mention that the area is just beautiful and if you want some place to relax or just a getaway from the city - Gecko Creek is definitely the place to be! I travelled through South Africa a lot - but a place like this you can barely find. Here you can experience real Africa - accommodation is the african way, people are friendly and the nature sourrounding is unique!
Thanks again for everything - i will definitely come back!!!

I stayed for 5 days at Gecko Creek and had an absolutely wonderful time. Very peaceful and quiet, just what I was looking for. The cabin was clean and what a spectacular view to wake up to! The washrooms were spotless (and all my showers were HOT), the pool crystal clear, and the self-catering facilities were second to none. I'd definitely recommend this lodge for a true wilderness experience.

We stayed in a cabin at Gecko Creek as part of an overland trip. The campsite was pretty funky with a nicely designed camp fire and the dining area was beautiful. The bathrooms are clean but quite a walk from the cabins so try not to go to the bathroom in the dark! The showers run on solar water but people on our tour found the water wasnt very warm.

The cabins were cosy but there is no electricity. Gecko Creek is not a bad place to stay for one night if you are on an overland tour but I definitely could not stay there longer as I dont like walking to the bathroom with only a torch!
