Firstly, Sander is an excellent host. He goes out of his way to make your stay the best. The facilities and accommodation are truly fantastic. There is a heated pool that we used even in winter. The surrounds are beautiful and scenic. The room is large enough and is very comfortable, it is full of character and exudes a great ambience. The dinner was excellent and the drinks are very reasonably priced. Sander organised 2 safari drives and a boat ride through the Blyde Canyon, all 3 were excellent and again reasonably priced. The only sad thing is we could only stay the 1 night, this place deserves at least 3 nights. There are mountain bikes that you can use to explore the surrounding area which we didn't have time to use. Even relaxing for 1 day here doing nothing but soaking up the atmosphere would be worth it. The attention to detail here is great.
Nothing, it was all fabulous.
I'm mentioned what is coming up to my mind, but is more than what I'm about to write! - Sander, the owner, does barbecue with exquisite meat every night. The barbecue is served in an open area nearby an open fireplace, soft music, candle lights and a buffet of salad and sides which are delicious. Plus, wine + homemade ice cream + coffee. What else do we need? - I was trabelling alone with a 6 months old baby. I had a nany arranged by the wife's owner and supervised by her everytime I needed. So nice! - all the tours and game drives I wanted to do they arranged for me with high quality partners, took me anywhere I wanted to and for a fair price - great location - very charming place - staff (EVERYONE) was really nice and not "too much". - facilities + internet worked perfectly - great breakfast - good energy - just 3 minutes walking from a reserve full of girafes, zebras and other great animals. DEFINATELY, you should get it!
Nothing to declare. Everything was much more than expected.
Host was excellent. Food was great. Comfortable accommodation. Friendly
Breakfast was well served, the braai (barbecue) served for dinner is amazing (a must have), rooms were clean and had comfortable beds. The lodge’s host, Sander, was one of the best hosts we’ve seen in our trips. He helped us a lot with tour tips/guidance, arrangements for game drives, and when we had to leave early for a self drive tour at the Kruger, he prepared us a nice breakfast to take away (with sandwiches/fruits and hot coffee/tea).
Nothing. We only stayed there for three nights, and we needed more.
