Riverside Lodge
It was amazing.
Boitumelo, za3 night trip
Riverside Lodge
Stayed in one of the 2 cottages. The location of the lodge is set on near a river where much birdlife is in earshot and in sight. Albert and Elza were great hosts with a thorough orientation of the lodge and surrounding areas. The cottages have a rustic decor but are immaculately kepy and are very spacious and well-equipped. The cottage can very comfortably sleep 4 to 5 people - there is a double bed in the master bedroom, a bunk bed with 2 single beds and a single chaise that could be used for small children. There is a prepared fireplace with firewood and tinder supplied. We made little use of the kitchen but includes a 2 plate stove, fridge and plenty of crockery and cutlery. The hosts held an evening reception with wine and snacks. As part of the stay, they ensured that their custodial staff cleaned our rental vehicle. Overall a very good stay with great service in a beautiful setting. Would have really liked to spend more time in the lodge and area.
