The lodge, especially the friendliness of the staff and its situation aside the Sabie river is excellent. Just the noise from the nearby road reminds on the close civilisation. We had a fantastic relaxing stay even if it was only for two days.

Fantastic place, situation on the river was amazing. We got to see hippos and elephants from the comfort of our cabin porch! Level of service provided was fantastic, staff were all warm and welcoming, would definitely recommend to a friend.

What a wonderful experience from the accommodation, to the food to the service. We were a team of 5 adults and 2 children and we all felt the same way about our stay. The staff consistently went out their way to make our stay here the best that it could be Even waking up to our cars washed and clean for the day. The tented rooms was luxury camping and very enjoyable. Will definitely be coming back here on our next Kruger Park trip.
