  • 8,0.Very good

    I had booked Imbali Safari Lodge for two nights and they overbooked the lodge the first night and made us go to the much smaller and less nice Hoyo Hoyo resort for one night and then TRANSFER back to Imbali Safari Lodge. No email or prior communication was given to me regarding this exchange. The lady Bunny was not at all helpful and rude. She told us to chase after a car heading to Hoyo Hoyo to find the place which was nowhere to be found. Finally, a nicer lady at the hotel got one of the staff to show us the way. This was totally inacceptable as I had booked specifically Imbali Safari Lodge which was MUCH nicer with a larger room/bathroom and outdoor terrace and mini pool. Aside from this incident, overall service was great, the food was good, the game rides were awesome and once we shifted to Imbali Safari Lodge, we enjoyed our (albeit now shortened) stay. I blame the Head Office for this last minute change without any communication mostly. I would have expected early communication and some sort of compensation for moving us to a crappier room/lodge when we paid for the larger/nicer one.

    Cadre paradisiaque. Safari d’exception avec un guide compétent et passionné. Chambre luxueuse avec terrasse et mini piscine face aux animaux. Escorte le soir pour éviter tête à tête avec un félin .... fabuleux !

    Das Essen und die angebotenen Safari-Touren waren toll. Beim Essen konnte man am gegenüberliegenden Wasserloch Tiere beobachten. Die Unterkunft selbst ist in die Jahre gekommen. Im Detail war vieles sehr abgenutzt oder gar kaputt (z.B. Tür zur Terrasse, Moskitonetz war löchrig). Schade für den Preis.

    Nossa melhor escolha no Kruger, hotel incrível!

    Experiência incrível, tudo foi muito bom! Passamos uma única noite no hotel (infelizmente), mas fomos super bem recebidos e bem cuidados. Nosso quarto era grande, bonito e confortável, as áreas comuns são lindas e bem cuidadas, com uma vista privilegiada - almoçamos olhando pra elefantes e zebras. Os safáris foram incríveis, vimos muitos animais e recebemos várias informações legais do guia. As refeições são ótimas, comida deliciosa e bem elaborado, com muito capricho e presteza de todos. Só temos elogios para o hotel, tudo pensado pra que sua experiência seja a melhor em todos os aspectos. A nossa foi assim! Voltaremos sem dúvidas numa próxima viagem ao Kruger e recomendamos a todos.

    Quase perfeito! Ficaria mais!

    Hotel com boa relação custo benefício dentro do parque. Quarto maravilhoso (quarto n•5) com vista para os animais e um deck com piscina (que estava suja pois era inverno). Alguns veadinhos vieram beber água na piscina e babuínos passaram pelo telhado e deck bem a nossa frente! Incrível de lindo! Peça o quarto 4 ou 5 que tem a mesma vista do restaurante! Do restaurante pode-se saborear a refeição assistindo a animais q se revezam na frente do hotel. Isso é ponto alto deste hotel! O jantar oferecido no esquema menu é muito bom. Já o almoço é buffet e deixa a desejar pela categoria do hotel, daria 4 estrelas para a comida. Várias bebidas alcoólicas e não alcoólicas incluídas. Quanto a localização, fica distante do aeroporto cerca de 2 h, por isso é importante que o voo chegue cedo para não correr o risco de não chegar a tempo do Safari das 15:30 ou mesmo do fechamento do parque. O Transfer oferecido pelo hotel é caro, recomendo alugar um carro. Nos game drives havia apenas 1 guia, e não 2 (motorista + ranger). Mas não houve qualquer situação de risco, embora seja uma falha grave de segurança. Todo staff do hotel é muito solicito e educado. O único ponto que nos incomodou bastante foi a insistência por gorjetas de um dos rapazes. Tudo que fazia já estendia a mão para tocar esperando por gorjetas. Chato e deselegante. Estamos em um hotel all inclusive em que o hóspede quer se desligar de obrigações. No hotel há a caixa para gorjetas, do staff e dos guias que serve para isso!

    Wunderschöne Lodge mitten im Nationalpark.Das Personal ist super nett. Das Essen super. Durch die Wasserstelle direkt vor der Lodge kann man quasi den gesamten Tag von der Terrasse Tiere beobachten. Die Lodges sind super schön eingerichtet und alle mit eigenem Pool. Auch die Game Drives sind absolut super. Ich kann die Lodge nur weiterempfehlen.

    Super bel endroit. Très propre. La fontaine d’eau installée en face fait en sorte qu’on voit beaucoup d’animaux venir s’abreuver et se rafraichir. C’est très intéressant. Les tours sont très bien, directement dans la savane et nous furent chanceux de tomber sur une meute de chiens sauvages en chasse. Lors de notre séjour on voyait moins d’animaux que dans la partie sud du parc. La nourriture est excellente et copieuse. Le BBQ est super car cela permet d’essayer des mets sud-africains. Le wifi est fonctionnel à la réception (pas dans les chambres). Le service est très bien.
