We stayed twice at Nkanga Lodge - the first two nights in one of the chalets and the last night of our holiday in a hotel room. We were very pleased with both rooms and the Chef GuGu prepared excellent breakfasts for us as well as two very good dinners. The atmosphere in the lounge was laid back and friendly....

Extremely disappointing. Expect to wait 20 mins for hot water, unless you phone reception for assistance, in which case expect a very rude and patronizing staff member to assist you. Would definitely not recommend. Service is all round terrible and unprofessional.

I have overnighted at Nkanga many times. Its my second home from home. Here you are treated like family. Everyone is friendly, sharing stories and meals we eat together. The rooms or cottages are very roomy and comfortable. I will return as soon as time allows.

Nkanga lodge is a wonderful location close to OR Tambo. Jane, Karen and the staff are fabulous. It is a beautiful setting and peaceful surrounds - a very relaxing atmosphere. The rooms are clean, modern and comfortable. The home cooked style meals are great. I will stay again.

We had a spare day in Johannesburg between flights. The Nkanga Lodge was only a 20 minute journey from the airport but it provided a wonderful backdrop. We stayed in a very well equipped African "hut" set in acres of lovely gardens including a lake. Everyone there could not have been more hospitable. We were taken both to and from...

We had a three night stay in this lodge. A very safe and secure place ! The room was nice - nothing was missing! Lovely breakfast with fresh fruit and also hot breakfast. It is a family run lodge - very nice people that always try to please you. So the slogan can be taken for granted: arrive as guests...

Peaceful compound with lovely landscaping, fountain, and even a pond around which so many birds have made their homes or hangouts! Gugu, the lady with the beautiful smile, was a wonderful cook with simple style of food, but flavorful and hearty meals--her curry and her various salads were particularly delicious!!! Rooms plenty roomy for two, clean and comfortable, with both...

After a long day in the hustle and bustle, the minute you're at Nkanga Lodge, you feel like you're in the country with its beautiful and quiet settings! Family run with great family values, you are welcomed as one of the family. A very special place for business people in particular and everyone you meet has been before. Don't bother...
