We had the most amazing stay at the lodge. The staff were so attentive and always smiling. The owners were fantastic- nothing was too much trouble . Keith was so animated and so keen to explain everything about the bush. His enthusiasm was infectious and we learnt so much. He is a real Doctor Doolittle. What could possibly beat sitting on your deck drinking early morning coffee as a male lion walked by.

Great stay. Game drive was a bit quite animals wise and you need a 4x4 to cope with the ride in but a lovely place.

A melhor escolha nos arredores Hoedspruit
O lugar é uma delícia! Ficamos no Hippo Logde que era enorme: Duas suítes, sendo 1 com banheira, sala de estar com tv, sala de jantar, cozinha equipada c varanda, piscina e área p acender uma fogueira. Ouvi de outros hóspedes que ficaram em quartos comuns que seus quartos eram enormes e super confortáveis. O café, o almoço e o jantar são servido na casa principal que tem lareira, sala de estar um deck de observação dos animais (lá aparece de esquilo a girafa) uma atração à parte. Tudo delicioso e super caprichado. Os donos, funcionários e eapecialmente a guia Arena são super atenciosos. Você pode deixar pra programar seus game-drives e outros passeios lá mesmo - eles fazem pra vc! O custo das coisas lá é bem justo! Super recomendo e de uma próxima, não ficaria em outro lugar!

Super schöne kleine Boutique-Anlage mit einem super familiärem Service, tollem Essen und modernen Zimmern. Zudem eignet sich die Location perfekt für einen Ausflug zur Panorama Route und ist ein guter Stopp bevor es in den Krüger Nationalpark geht. Eine echte Empfehlung!!!
