Focal point: if you come to this lodge in a private concession of Kruger park, of course, the main interest is not focused on reaching the best hotel comfort, but by this lodge you would expect a small step more in my opinion: 1) The furniture in the bathroom are rather in bad conditions and the poufs at the bottom...

I was here with a group last year and this time as well. The service and experience is excellent and the raiders/guides that take you on your game drives are really proffesional and give you the experience of your life! The water in the pool looked dirty but I think the dry period had given them some problems with the...

What a great place! Everyone has his/her own villa. The shower is on the outside, but that didn't matter. It's very private except for an occasional impala or monkey that wanders by. The meals are held in the main lodge and are buffet. The rooms are air conditioned, but not the main lodge.

The staff was available and helpful. The location inside Kruger National Park is a plus. Our game driver was friendly and knowledgeable. There was a variety of food choices and it was all delicious. We met several couples on honeymoon there, though we were not!

Game Lodge within Kruger National Park in South Africa. The rooms/bungalows/chalets were roomy, clean, well functioning, with nice decor. The staff was very helpful and accommodating. The game drivers were friendly and knowledgeable. The other guests were fun to meet and chat with. The ambience was terrific.

Rooms are amazing but service nonexistant. When we arrived - no one to meet us or even welcome us at Reception , we were just ignored. Breakfast and lunch good but dinners terrible - salads left over from the dinner and all meat raw. When ever we asked for a manager - he was not on site.

The location is superb and the rooms are spacious and above expectation with a huge bed covered by mosquito net and outdoor private shower. The view from the bed , bath and shower gave us an expansive view of the bush land and the animals and birds passing through.

We stayed here for two nights, and on arrival all staff were very friendly. Our guide was Dixon and he was very knowledgable and nice. The rooms are well designed, but they are a bit tired. Our bathroom had a broken window (out of the socket) which let insects inside and my partner was bitten by a spider during the...

The place is like paradise. The food is excellent and the sfari experience was outsrtanding. Our ranger -Norwick- is a total genius, we saw all the animals, even those we thoght were impossible. We really got value for our money.
