10/10 Exceptional

This has been one of our most memorable stays anywhere in the world. We knew our first safari would be amazing but Xanatseni exceeded all of our expectations. Aside from the 4-star amenities and hospitality that rival that of hotels in big cities, the staff was the best part of the experience. Our rangers Bill and Mel were extremely knowledgable and passionate about sharing their love for all living things in the bush. Ross was there whenever we needed anything and shared many entertaining stories about his time on safaris. This has been an unforgettable experience and we feel incredibly lucky to have spent our first safari at Xanatseni.

Xanatseni is a standout property. Every game drive is an adventure, the rooms, pool, gym and common areas are all well-equipped and beautifully maintained, the meals are terrific. But what made this such an unforgettable experience were the people who worked there. We remember every one of them... Teneil, Ross, Sydney, Ash, Given, the list goes on and on. We're fortunate to have been their guests, and we're looking forward to spending more time with them in the future.

Super friendly lodge in beautiful setting
Spent 2 nights with our family( 6 of us) at this lovely place(Easter 2017) and will certainly come back again. The owners and family were also at the lodge over our stay and were so welcoming. From the moment we arrived we were impressed . The room was so beautiful, so clean ,food was great too. We enjoyed the pre dinner drinks around the fire with great conversation. The game drives were great and we saw so much.The big 5 all in 24 hours. We have done 4 trips to the Kruger area and stayed at 10 different lodges, in all price ranges and value for money this lodge is right up the top.

Amazing Staff
The location within in the reserve was great, and the staff was amazing. Plenty of great food and beverages around and during the safari drives. The fitness center and some of the latches could use a refresh, but they do not affect the overall experience.
