A little piece of heaven”
We arrived at Blyde River Wilderness Lodge and the first thing we saw were the giraffe. The staff were very welcoming and the location was stunning. We stayed in one of the small rondavels called Hornbill. It was beautifully furnished and so peaceful. We opted to have dinner there which was lovely, there is wi-fi but it’s very slow which was not a problem for us as we wanted to get away from it all. It was so nice to see couples actually talking to each other instead of being on their phones all night. I would definately recommend this lodge but do remember that the word Wilderness gives you some idea of what facilities are available.

Beautiful lodge on a beautiful location!!”
The lodge is absolutely situated at a beautiful location, sadly enough the road to the lodge is really bad when you're not driving a 4x4. The staff is really helpfull and very friendly. The dinner and breakfast are very tasty! The room was beautiful and big. It's absolutely worth staying there!!

lovely surroundings and people”
helpfulness of staff, location next to the river,birds in the morning
Lovely surroundings and in a reserve, so the nyala came to feed near the room and I saw a civet and monkeys on the drive in after dark. Really comfortable room, access to internet in the lounge, really good pre-set meals and staff very helpful. only difficulty is the road in though it was being graded as I left - says 6 km but it is nearer to 6 miles (10 km) and quite rough. And transfers from the nearest town Hoedspruit are expensive, so if the lodge could look at a cheaper service that would be great. But very enjoyable and I would stay again.

Wilderness experience”
Remoteness. Off the beaten track. Private
We enjoyed our stay at the hotel. Reception was good. Rooms are comfortable - nothing overstated. If you want to enjoy a wilderness experience, off the beaten track, but still have all the luxuries what a hotel has to offer then we would recommend this establishment.

Relaxing ”
Extremely Friendly staff with a large selection of things for breakfast
Relaxing but a little difficult to find and is located on a sand road so when it rains it can become a little difficult to drive to and from there. It is located in a reserve with animals and there is a possibility that you may see some animals while you there. The view is also breathe taking with friendly and welcoming staff

A remote lodge serves delicious meals”
river facing balcony, animals in the reserve, delicious dinner and breakfast
With the road condition in a rainy day,it was almost an hour drive to the lodge reception when you find the sign of the lodge on R527. Therefore, it is not that close to Hoedspruit, and it is best to drive there during the day. The encounter of giraffes and zebras in the reserve was a surprise. The room we stayed was spacious and clean, it was nicely decorated with lots of fresh flowers. The balcony was overlooking the river and bush, very relaxing. Dinner and breakfast served in the lodge were super delicious and with a touch of local flavors. We really enjoyed all stay in the lodge.

A super relaxed stay in the wilderness”
location, quietness, gardens
We stayed at this resort because of our flight from Hoedspruit. We were really surprised to find such a nice and quit place in the middle of the bush. The lodge is situated in the middle of a parc, where you can find als sorts of animals like giraffes, impala's and zebra's. The resort has fantastic gardens! You really feel very quit and alone there. Food was nice as well, but it is a set menu, so not a lot to choose from. The rooms are very large and clean.

Romantic Retreat In The Middle Of Nowhere”
Romantic, Superb Atmosphere, Wildlife
Overall, the stay was very good - we were greeted with giraffes and zebras when we came in - although it was hard to find the route to get into the property. You have to literally open a gate, drive through, and then close the gate. However, if you're doing a road trip, this is a great place to stay around the Blyde River area.

Sehr schön, aber wir fühlten uns nicht willkommen”
Die Wilderness Lodge liegt sehr abgelegen von der Straße in einer schönen Oase der Ruhe direkt am Fluss. Der Pool war sehr ungepflegt, der Gärtner leistet jedoch gute Arbeit. Das Personal war weder freundlich noch nett und zuvorkommend. Wir fühlten uns nicht willkommen. Fragen wurden mürrisch kurz und knapp beantwortet. Die Milch in unserem Zimmer war monatelang abgelaufen, was an der Rezeption niemanden interessierte. Frühstück und Abendessen waren exzellent. Abendessen und Getränkepreide fair. WLAN kostet 50 ZAR und nicht 40 ZAR wie angegeben.

Erholung pur - das Beste am Anfang unsere Reise”
Die Unterkunft selbst mit sehr freundlichem Personal, frei lebende Tiere wie Nyalas und Pfauen im Resort und die Speisen
Nach einem langen Flug und 450 km Anreise mit dem SUV wurden wir überaus freundlich empfangen. Es war unser Start zu einer fünfwöchigen Südafrika/Namibia Rundreise und wir können die Lodge mehr als empfehlen. Wir hatten eine Rundhütte neben dem Restaurant gebucht- Wir haben hier das beste Steak und den besten Fisch gegessen. Nach Übernachtungen in insgesamt 20 Unterkünften, ist sie die einzige, die wir sofort wieder buchen würden. Die oft kritisierte Anfahrt wäre sogar mit einem tiefergelegten Fzg mit etwas Geschick ohne Probleme möglich. Wir kommen sicher wieder. Danke! Das Preisleistungsverhältnis war ebenfalls das beste der gesamten Reise.

Spannend hote, grote kamer, wilde dieren
Geweldig mooi hotel in een klein Game Reserve met in de hoteltuin allerlei wilde dieren, buiten het hotel moet je eerst door een Game Reserve met allerlei smalle wegen, hier lopen zebra's en giraffen. Je zit wel op je hotel vast want je kan alleen met de auto weg, ze hebben een goed restaurant en een goed zwembad en aardig personeel, het kost wel wat!

Super mooie lodge!”
Locatie en luxe
Blyde River Lodge is centraal gelegen in het gebied. De weg ernaartoe is even lastig (bijna 10 km onverharde weg). Maar dit is zeker de mooiste waard. Het ontvangst is erg vriendelijk. De rondavels zijn een mooie combinatie van traditioneel en modern. Er lopen twee paarden op net terrein om het gras bij te houden! Het ontbijt is erg goed en ook diner is aan te bevelen.
