    Something you should try, at least once, go for 2 nights, more if you can, but really a treat.
    The chef, Chef Stevens is timid, but wow can he cook. I had what can be described as one of my top 2 fillets I have ever had (Top 2 because my g/f might see this). The pork chops and crackling amazin, and WOW you must try the chocolate volcano. Our guide Jonus, was knowledgeable, and went the extra mile to show us as much game as possible.

    Ekuthuleni is true luxury, I took my girl friend there for her birthday and it was everything and more. From private dining, to birthday cupcakes, amazing food, amazing animals and amazing people. The rooms are beautiful, with a private huge bath that opens up to the bush. The team made sure that everything we wanted was provided. Craft gins available at the bar, and on safari. Coffee and biscuits were provided for sunrise while on a game drive, and the afternoon game drive saw us watching the sun set, while enjoying a drink in the bush. Truly magical. Just when you think it could not get any better, you look up at the stars and see the milky way, to enter your room, with a turned bed, chocolates, rose petals. A birthday celebration not easily forgotten.

    Massive thank you to Sam and the team. Chef Stevens kept us fed and the food was excellent. Loved the Fillet and Pork Chops and the Ice Cream and Chocolate Volcano was AMAZING. Jonus, was an amazing guide, informative, and patient with all the questions. Even though the hunt for the Cheetah did not go as planned, we saw some beautiful game, took loads of wonderful pictures and truly had a fantastic time. Sam, she is a great host, how she manages to run two lodges so well I have no idea. She made sure we were looked after, and a massive thank you for making Shay feel special on her birthday.

    A truly wonderful bush experience to enjoy with small kids. Small friendly lodge with great attention to detail. Nothing was too much trouble. The staff were very friendly. Game viewing was great but enjoying the expanse of the bush was breathtaking.

    To Our Dearest Leloko Nicole, Sheldon and Lily,

    We want to say a special thank you to you for choosing us to spend your precious family time away. We loved Lily's enthusiasm for the bush and we're sure that she wowed all her friends with bushveld stories when she got back.

    Again, it was lovely meeting you and we hope that you will visit us when you next need some time away at this "place of peace"

    Your Ekuthuleni Leloko

    Dear Family Joannided,

    Many thanks for your review and for sharing your experience. How kind you are to commend the stay, food, hospitality and the guides. We really hope that you will come visit us again when you need some more personal family time and R&R.

    Please keep an eye out for our fabulous winter specials on our website. Welgevonden is great in winter for predator viewing. With all the trees shedding their folaige, you can see for miles.

    The Ekuthuleni Leloko send their Sincere Regards.

    It is our third time visiting Ekuthuleni and each time confirms its name "Place of Peace". The rooms are beautifully furnished. Staff polite and hospitable and game ranger well experienced and informative. The food is excellent. We would like to thank Sam the manager, and chef Steven.
