Chestnut Country Lodge is situated in a wonderful location right in the African bush where creatures can be heard during the night. Food and rooms are to a high standard and service from the team was great.

Pros. Clean and comfortable rooms, excellent location 30-60 minutes of driving to all major Panorama Rout's sightseeings, hospitable staff, breakfasts big enough to satisfy even sumo wrestlers. I virtually liked everything! Cons. The only minor issue is approximately 2 km of gravel access road especially from R536's side. In fact it was not a problem for us since we were...

Close to the Kruger Park gates, restaurants and many sightseeing spots. Another attraction highlight was our visit to Elephant Whispers (elephant sanctuary). The owners at Chestnut are very knowledgeable about the area and gave suggestions on what not to...

We stayed over at Chestnut Country Lodge for two nights. We had an amazing stay with Christine, her lovely dogs and of course her staff.

This place is breathtakingly beautiful. The rooms and service are just as beautiful as the staff! Just for a little Texas fun and inside information, Gwynn is very jumpy. Hide around the corner and whisper BOO!

We have stayed at Chestnut on several occasions over the last 15 years, and never have been dissapointed. Still amazed by the view. Moving the pool down to the valley was a good idea, as breakfast can be served outside on the larger terras now, which is wonderful.The rooms are spacious and clean. The set dinner menu is varied and...
