Reviewed yesterday NEW

Private houses with incredible views, with a convenient cafe and giftshop. The pool really is as beautiful as on the pictures, and the whole area is very scenic. It was quite remote, with some challenging roads on the way, but it was entirely worth it.

Rooms were nice and the staff was great. Our guide for Krueger was awesome! Good food. We were about 15 minutes outside of Krueger. They helped with transportation from Joberg. Small place, but so friendly.

Been here a few times now for evening meals. Nice place but lacks a certain something. More expensive than say Jabula but not as good. Will return but hopefully things get better. Maybe lacks that true African appeal ?

We enjoyed our stay at Phumula Kruger Lodge. The staff were extremely friendly and did everything they could to makes feel comfortable. It is only a stone step away from the entry to Kruger National Park. While there we saw Giraffes walk right past our front door - amazing.

Our 3 star graded lodge is situated in Marloth Park, close to Mozambique and Kruger National Park. Centrally located, we serve as a basis from where Mozambique and Kruger National Park can easily be reached. We take pride in our hospitality and friendly service.
