      What began like a post-weekend getaway to experience ‘fancy tent living’ was swiftly cut short due to ‘being the only guests’ and thus came a recommendation to be upgraded to a superior room in a nearby establishment. We were receptive to this as we assumed that staff may be needing a break or rather maximizing efficiency on the lodge part - which is understandable. On the other hand - who doesn’t like to be upgraded! We are not unicorns! We sure arrived later than previously confirmed - but we did alert the team that we were going to be late. We were received warmly by two gentlemen and were taken to dinner. Also as I called earlier to arrange I was told that there is a fixed price - for the al la carte dinner. So expectations were slightly elevated compared to Ocean basket we were going to get seeing that we were running late. Sadly, food was not great at all apart from the dessert. We were told we cannot drive ourselves to our room and so we were escorted using ‘golf cart’ transport - sorry, I don’t know what it’s called, officially! Our ‘superior room’ was indeed nice and very well designed, bathroom and all! But, you know certain small things quickly spoiled our experience: dirty or rather stained towels, dirty rug, torn bed linen, bins not emptied and a stained bathtub, among other little things!

    Our ‘superior room’ was indeed nice and very well designed, bathroom and all! But, you know certain small things quickly spoiled our experience: dirty or rather stained towels, dirty rug, torn bed linen, bins not emptied and a stained bathtub, among other little things! I could not take it. I must admit I do not always take baths but I definitely do in winter and as such it is a priority when searching for my winter getaways.

    The following day - I made sure that I voice my concerns on our way out for the day and the lady was receptive and advised that someone had already been dispatched to our room. To confess - I did not list all the above things to the lady for I thought all the others would be clearly obvious to someone who is in hotel housekeeping.

    We had breakfast - which was alright and the young man serving(one of the guys who met us the night before) us was very friendly and did his level best to maximize the experience! Thank you for him.

    Later that evening, we heard it was meant to boma night - we decided to go to our room first. Yes bath tub was clean, bin emptied, towels changed but the rug was still there untouched, webs on the skylight and windows were still there! We were totally turned off but at least my husband prepared a bath for me. It was indeed nice but I then wondered if the following day the bathtub would be cleaned for the next occupants. Probably it should be considered that you provide cleaning material because for some of the neat freaks out there it matters that we clean after ourselves as well!

    So all in all - it is a nice place and though you would expect a fireplace which it seems that it was supposed to be there - it is a beautiful place. They did however provide electric blanket and aircon so we were comfortably warm!
    And if you do consider going - ask for any other unit but unit 7. The morning view is blocked by shrubs that are not strategically pruned. Otherwise it’s a good place as for coming back - I am not sure! More

      Travelled as part of a G Adventures tour, and what a pleasure to stay at the lodge.

    A warm welcome on arrival set the tone for a lovely stay for sadly only two nights.

    My stay was in one of there Luxury Tents, with amazing views of the Bushveld.

    All the comforts of home are in the tent, from air conditining, and amenties for the bathroom and of course a cosy bed.

    I am really glad they did not install TV's - allows you to really take in the peace and quiet and the serenity of the nature at your doorstep.

    On the food front we were looked after so well. The first night was a delightful ala carte menu, with great food and of course South African Wine on offer.

    The traditional Boma dinner on the final night under the stars was magnificent and the food equally tasty.

    Service from all the staff was warm, friendly and all of them really want you to feel at home.

    And to top off the lovely stay, walking up to dinner and the sunset on the final night to be met with Giraffes was a photo opportunity not to be missed. More

      We stayed for two nights. We were fortunate to be upgraded to a lodge with its own pool. Lovely room with indoor and outdoor shower. Friendly and efficient staff. Food good. If you are lucky you may get giraffes, zebra or antelope coming to visit....More
