We had a lovely stay in the royal Kruger lodge. Service was excellent, the rooms are beautiful and clean. Julia is a wonderful cook and Robert is the best guide we have had on our holiday. Everyone does their best to make your stay unforgettable, and it was. Thanks again!!

Anyone looking to visit Kruger Nstional Park you need look no further than the Rotal Kruger Lodge. From the moment we arrived Rick picked us up from the airport and he set the experience up with his friendliness, and the hospitality and service provided by Felicity and her staff has been second to none. The accommodation is also first class...

We recently stayed at Royal Kruger and had an excellent stay. The lodge is in the process of new construction near the pool so there is not really any privacy if you are planning on having a dip. The outdoor shower was different but also offered a nice change to the usual bathroom. Julia's (and her team) cooking was delicious...

Royal Kruger Lodge was well above what we expected, the staff were all wonderful and looked after us very well. The Lodge was very clean and well presented. Food was amazing, we have no hesitation in recommending anyone who wants to have a South African experience. We would go back anytime. Pamela and Melinda McMullen

Beautiful building with potential but the experience falls far short. The food was terrible. I haven’t eaten food of that standard since school camp in the 1960s. Gravy, sauces, soups and custard appeared to be made out of packets and vegetables appeared to be from packets of frozen mixed vegetables or tins. Our packed lunch was, to our standard, inedible...

What a total disappointment. I was expecting much more after reading rave reviews. Plastic rose petals on the bed, supermarket toiletries, cheap and nasty artwork, cutlery, placemats, bed linen and furniture. The outside shower could have been s treat but feel well short with cheap fittings and rubber mats. The dinners were great if you had a tiny appetite. The...
