The entire lodge is beautiful and greet facilities
Amazing location staff really treats you like one of their own guests.
The fact that we left a day earlier than what we were supposed to. (and the hyena sounds in the evening)
You won't believe how dirty it is under the beds. The furniture is old and broken. They served us toast that was burned so bad that is could not be eaten. When booking in they expected only 2 people, although our booking was confirmed for 2 adults and 2 children. We had to wait for 45 minutes before we were collected from the pickup point. The next morning we were moved to a bigger room. One staff member pitched to help us move, who took a bag. We had to carry the rest of the luggage. The guides has no respect for the bush or animals. They will drive offroad at each sighting. It was to the point that I felt it was unethical. In more than 1 sighting I felt that the guests were put in danger. When guests mentioned that they are uncomfortable with the situation, jokes are made about it. When arriving for the coffee before the morning drive, the guides are sitting on all chairs, drinking coffee, while coffee for the guests are not ready. I had to stand around as the staff occupied the chairs. We visited numerous lodges in South Africa and will definitely not return to Bongani mountain lodge. It was very disappointing.
It was really hard to find the gate of the lodge. The navigation system directs almost every guest that‘s traveling with his own car in the wrong direction. There are no signs along the road. A detailed description - for how to find the lodge - that comes with the booking confirmation would not only be really helpful but absolutely necessary! The rest of the location was great! Once you get there, it is a great place in the mountains to discover the wilderness and the animals :)
The food was extraordinarily good. Lots of different vegetable, unusual salats, very good meat quality. Very friendly stuff. Beautiful view.
Nothing negative, everything fine
