    Proximity to Kruger gate”

    We chose this place because the safari camps in Kruger park were sold out for the dates we wanted. This place was nice, overlooking the park boundary. Nice huge tent with a comfortable bed inside. Due to its wilderness, so there were many insects around. Do try the barbecue dinner (braai) as food options around the area are limited. Overall a nice stay here.

    Thrown Out... Traumatic”

    Thrown Out of My Paid Room!! I booked 3 nights “Luxury River Frontage Bush Tent” paid in full 3 months before my stay. On check-in, I filled up registration, gave passport, credit card, and got room key. Everything was fine. On the 3rd day, I arrived 5pm after a long tiring day sightseeing to find all my things in my tent GONE! I had unpacked my clothes, washed things in the bathroom, and suddenly nothing was left! What I saw was another guest’s luggage in my tent!! I looked for lodge staff to find out what happened. I was told my things were removed and transferred to another room. I finally found them dumped in a room with old bathroom, not at all comparable to what I had paid for. I was in disbelief they had the nerve to touch my unpacked clothes, underthings, valuables (cash, jewelry, iPad)! I asked they remove the new guest’s belongings and return mine to the tent I paid for. They flat out refused. I asked them to call Agoda to verify my booking. Instead, they called their Manager by cellphone to take instructions. He insisted I was informed I would be moved to a different room on the 3rd night. This is 100% UNTRUE. I personally checked in, spent time at reception, and no mention of any issue with my accommodations. If they had spoken to someone, it was NOT me. My online and printed booking clearly said 3N Luxury River Frontage Bush Tent for 1 person – PAID. They said I was just trying to get something out of the lodge. They said I was free not to accept the room and they would return the money I paid for. They said they were doing me a favor by giving me another room. I was in SHOCK!! I finally told them I would NOT take the awful room. I stayed with friends that night, exhausted and barely able to check my things. I knew I needed to get my clothes laundered ASAP. Next morning, they reneged and said they would NOT return the money I paid after all. By then I was so sick and just wanted to get to the airport. Todate, no apology for t

    Stayed for four nights after touring Kruger and loved it. Staff were friendly and helpful. Saw rhino and a massive herd of elephants from the deck. A really enjoyable stay!

    Lovely weekend by the kruger!”

    We had a lovely time at this lodge. We arrived quite late on the Friday night and the staff were extremely friendly and willing to check us in and show us around the lodge and carry our luggage to our tent. The tent is beautiful and spacious. I liked the fact that the kitchen and bathrooms were private. (I was expecting it to be communal) The dinner is served on a wooden deck looking over the Sabie river. Had a lovely evening of good food, friendly staff and a great atmosphere. We were lucky enough to see a elephant in the river in front of us from our bed. Would recommend this place to anyone and will definitely be returning.

    near Kruger, by river

    This was a terrible hotel experience. The rooms and grounds are fine. They offer dinner with the room, which came as a surprise as none of the online material indicates this. However, I got violently sick after eating dinner the first night. When I told reception in the morning, they seemed uninterested in investigating if it was the hotel’s food or even inquiring after my well being. The entire stay was riddled with staff oversights. I sat at the pool for about 30 minutes trying to get the attention of several staff that were talking amongst themselves. Then, a couple can to the pool and was attended to within a minute. I still had to flag the waiter down at that point. The staff skipped my room for cleaning on day 2 and on day 3 I inquired about getting the room cleaned. After a lengthy argument, I discovered that the staff had lost the spare key the previous day and had not told me of management. I was told that I would have to leave and leave my key there if I wanted the room cleaned. When I spoke to the manager, instead of just apologizing, he told me that the room hadn’t been cleaned because I had a do not enter sign on the door the previous day and told me that I was wrong about there not being an extra key. I’m really at a loss as to why I had argue about any of this, and all of the employees wer far more concerned about placing blame rather than just cleaning the room. I also had to argue with staff twice with staff to have soap put in the room. Maybe it’s just my delicate American nature, but some basic consideration for a guest who was quite ill would have gone a long way, as would have soap being available in the bathroom. Even after asking for the owners contact information, it was not provided and no sort of compensation was offered. Do not stay here if you are a lone traveler. The internet also rarely works here.

    Très bon accueil, situation privilégiée face à la rivière Sabie et le Kruger. Si vous n'avez pas de chambre sur le jardin, un peu sombre et sans terrasse mais le prix est en rapport. Dîner et petit déjeuner très corrects. Belle piscine et terrasse avec pliants.
