It was only our 2nd night in SA and we were still a bit unsure of certain things besides being short on some things before entering Kruger. But all was looked after by the VERY friendly owners of this lodge.
The rooms are spacious and clean, come with a fridge and a little outside seating area.
The pool looked very nice though were the temperatures at the time not really at the swimming level.
Thanks to Dave and his patience with us and our neverending questions we had a great stay!

Edrich and Elfreda.
We were coming out of the Kruger after our stay there and again as in Aug 2012 Dave and Samantha bent over backwards to help, always smiling. We were greeted with crisp white, clean bedding, hot water and a special effort to add a third bed to accommodate our group of 5 in two rooms. Unfotunately, we had to leave early the Sunday and missed serious palatable breakfast this time. Sunbird is already a permanent part whenever passing through Phalaborwa.

Room Tip: Choose "Roller" or "Bee-eater" and the bluest, cristal clear pool is at your doorstep

We stayed for two nights with Samantha and Dave and that was in fact too short. It was a lovely place to stay with great hospitality!
There was a bar where you could help yourself with all kinds of drinks.
If possible we will visit Sunbird Lodge again in the future!

Room Tip: The owner (Dave) arranged a wonderful game drive for us to Kruger (entrance only 2 km from Sunbird Lodge). We had a fantastic day with Nico from Sefapane who drove us around from 6 am until 5 pm! By the way Sefapane has a good restaurant as well, sleeping however costs twice as much as in Sunbird Lodge!
