Rude Owners
While the physical accommodations were nice the owners were downright rude and unpleasant. It is astonishing how people in the hospitality industry could be so inhospitable.

Beyond Basic, Beautiful, Bush Experience
My husband and I stayed at the Kubu Lodge for 11 nights. The staff and owners, Nicole and Manfred, were pleasant, friendly and helpful. The rooms were beautiful and kept clean. Breakfast was a delight every morning with fresh fruit, fresh bread and eggs made to order. The ladies knew my husband liked mushrooms and they made sure he had them on his plate every morning. We ate several dinners there and particularly enjoyed the meals prepared in the boma. We saw many animals as we drove into Hoedspruit everyday. The Kubu Lodge is a peaceful place that calls one to rest and be refreshed.

N accepté pas les cartes de crédit
Très mauvaise surprise au moment de régler la note le matin du départ : pas de carte bleue possible, pour un montant d environs 6000 zar ... Et rien n était indiqué sur notre réservation. Pas très logique lorsque l'on se fait référencer sur les plateformes web. Pas d accès téléphonique et web limité : seule solution : aller retirer la somme en cash a 20' de là. Près de 1 h de trajet pour pouvoir régler ma note. Bilan : vu le manque de support du propriétaire pour aider a résoudre le problème (qui vient de son refus de permettre les paiements par carte), je déconseille vivement cet établissement.

Hotel bom, mas pode melhorar
Muito bom lodge, equipe super atenciosa e prestativa, vale a pena pelo preço, unica coisa que deixou muito a desejar foi do local nao aceitar pagamento em cartao, apenas em dinheiro ou deposito, um lugar que recebe turistas do mundo todo, é inaceitavel que nao aceite nenhum tipo de pagamento em cartao.
