Latest Reviews

As a frequent traveller, I have to rate Hawklee Guest Lodge as one of the top 5 Lodges in South Africa. The friendly manner in which all staff welcomed us and the extra mile they walked to accommodate our every need was nothing short of amazing.

The room was tastefully decorated to compliment the beautiful surroundings of the Lions River and the food prepared to fit the taste buds of a King. I will definitely recommend this lodge to all travellers.
