    Do yourself the favour and go and stay here!

    Our stay was very relaxing - the staff really went out of their way to help us as I had a stomach-bug when we arrived there, so they called the nearest pharmacy to stay open for us, so that I could get some medicine. Charlotte is a very kind and helpful young woman. Beautiful surroundings and the breakfast is 6 stars!

    Pure luxury at a great price!

    This was the absolute best hotel we have ever stayed at. It is extremely luxurious and the staff go above and beyond for you. We have never experienced such fantastic service. We only stayed here one night in transit to a safari game reserve but we wish we had stayed here 3 nights and done Kruger on our own. The food was outstanding, the staff was genuine and kind, the building and property were an architectural dream. We saw giraffes, zebras, warthogs and impalas within the reserve. We will be back

    Perfect place to stay en route to (or coming from) Kruger Park. Outstanding facilities and a warm, gracious staff. We're already looking forward to our next visit.

    A beautiful lodge set in a wildlife estate, with animals such as monkeys and impalas within the lodge grounds. The service was exemplary, quiet and extremely efficient, very good food, presented in an appealing manner. Our room, a cottage, was very private but only 10 metres away from the main building and the restaurant area. The whole experience was tranquil and peaceful, just what we needed as we used our stay to visit the Kruger and a private reserve on safaris.

    D R E A M!!!!

    The most perfect place on earth, the staff are beyond perfect and the room as are a dream. The breakfast is great and their nighttime set ups is beautiful!! Our only recommendation is to make sure book all your activities at least a week before arrival due to time and space, also pay attention that there are a lot of other activities not relevant to the lodge. Other than that, perfect place! Have fun!

    Um dos melhores hotéis que já fiquei!

    Sem palavras para esse hotel! Nunca fui tão bem atendida na minha vida! Todos os funcionários são MUITO prestativos e atenciosos! O jantar (embora não incluso) é excelente! O café da manhã também é maravilhoso! Nos deram um upgrade de quarto e ficamos em um quarto absurdamente lindo, Charmoso e aconchegante! Eles se preocupam com os mínimos detalhes! Recomendo demais esse hotel!
