Recent reviews

Superb 9,0 From 70 reviews

Good 6,0
A good choice for families
A fairly priced lodge/ Hotel in Pilansberg national park. Its certainly not the best place to stay if you want tranquility, exclusivity and emerge yourself in the African bush, like many South African lodges focus on, but then again you are not paying thousands of dollars a stay either. For larger families traveling together, this is a great choice. This is also a great choice if this is your first time on a safari. - The area is fenced in and safe. - Rooms have a nice view of the bush - Rooms are very cleaned, comfortable with large bathroom and an outdoor shower. - Staff are great - The restaurant serves a buffe. The food was pretty average. Good hotel, and a great deal

Amazing place!
Amazing stay in an amazing place. Although I wouldn't give it 5 * it is a very beautiful and comfortable hotel/lodge. Great service and very friendly staff, 3 meals per day (all buffet) of good choice and taisty, vegetarian, fish and different kinds of meats. Drinks are to be paid apart. Bartender Victory is the best! The rooms (we had a luxury suite with private patio with a small pool) very spacious and nice furnished. Patio/terrace could have been kept a bit cleaner. 2 game drives were included (5:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.). An unforgetable experience!!! Cathy, our guide, was a pro! She had such a good knowledge about the park and all the animals and she was so funny! We will definitely come back!

Very nice Lodge
All was great with room and Lodge, Food was ok.u Upon leaving out of the blue a fee of R252.00 was requested for Community Services over and above regular fees. was paid in full for accommodation taxes etc. Refused the extra charge. I find it very unacceptable that this was not told to us when we booked.

This place is great.
Staff was amazing. Game drives were great (ask to have Sean, he was top notch). The room (bungalow) was very new and clean. Food was fantastic too. Can’t say enough good things about this property.

Enjoyable stay!
The rooms were spacious and clean- and the outdoor shower was perfect allowing you to shower privately under the stars. I was concerned that it would be too cold outside to use and therefore impractical but the water was delightfully hot and I didn’t even notice the cold. We had Ika as our guide for the game drives and he was unbelievable - we got to see all of the big 5 game during our two days. The food was delicious as well
