The Lodge was a nice place to stay. They served a delicious breakfast that was included in the price. It is far from town but they offered a lovely 3 course dinner each night that was extra. We saw zebras and baboons in the mornings.

Beautiful beyond expectations
amazing and how.. the resort is world class with excellent facilities and staff. very friendly and warm to guests. Breakfast was superb and filling with choice of hot & cold dishes. Vicky the owner and her staff went out of their way to help us enjoy our stay there. We saw zebras on the ground close to our cottage and were amazed.. a short drive to Blyde River Canyon Dam and its a beautiful place to spend the sunset. Hoidspruit is the closest town which is around 15 minutes away by car in case you to go out for dinner etc.

The place was lovely and we really enjoyed our stay. Only problem was the bed which made noise and swung when we turned around.

8/10 Very good

Very small room but also very cozy. We had mixed experience with the staff some where very friendly and informative and some where not very keen on service. The breakfast was excellent. The location was decent but not the best. The wifi was horrible at bussy hours and this was frustrating since we had to pay to use it.
