The accommodation is very comfortable. Interesting bird life to be seen on the self-guided walk. On the first morning the only negative was that staff was unprepared for breakfast, but once that was sorted out is was superb. Great service and very friendly. A bit far away from Hluhluwe Game Reserve if that is the purpose of the visit.

Very nice lodge just next to Isimangaliso national park. Kind personnel and good rooms with good beds. The trip in Hluhluwe national park (north part) is not to be missed (ask Christopher as guide). I'll go back any time, thanks again to the entire team! Eric

Wildebees Ecolodge has very friendly staff, good food, it was peaceful and gave us the space to relax and enjoy in the bush. Grounds are not well kept, houses outside not cleaned (inside good). Gives a bad first impression.

We had a really nice stay in the wildebees ecolodge. It is like jungle and you´re living in cabins and huts which are very romantic and clean. Nice staff und really good dinner!Unfortunately the road to go there is not that good but its ok.

We had a great camping experience at this spot with the thrill of a possible leopard sighting. Staff are very friendly. A bonus is it's close to Hluhluwe Umfolozi Park. I will recommend this place for a quite get away.

We felt very welcome and was greeted by very friendly staff. The rooms are nice and cosy. I thought it was a little expensive (compared to 4star accommodations which cost the same with air-conditioner, bigger bed, etc) but had an overall nice stay.

The room was dirty, we found a scorpion in it - it was horrible !!! Taps in the bathroom dazzled shock - an electrical fault. Mosquito net full of holes. Little varied breakfast, hotel located in a very bad road, 6 km drove holes.
