Had a super relaxing weekend with wife and daughter. A place you can really wind down at. Beautiful scenery. The walking trails are amazing. Will definitely visit again. The only tip is to play open cards about the road conditions. I was told my sedan would handle it but was damn glad I took the Fortuner. Further, stunning place and...

We were thirty two family members that went to Komati Gorge Lodge for New Year 2012 with our Pets being the main reason we went. The place is in a stunning place, however we were not informed that the sand road was soo bad and it was most unpleasant for my seven month pregnant daughter in law. We were not...

We have decided to comment on this, rather late than never. This group was so happy with everything until they had to pay the bills... The organiser of the group told us on new years eve how impressed they were with the place and the service and they wood definitely tell all their friends to visit Komati Gorge. They were...

If you want relaxation then this is the place for you! Pet friendly and the nicest, friendliest staff as a whole I've come across in a long time. Although the dinner menu is small, the food is great and Ernst and Amanda go out of their way to make you feel comfortable. My husband and I went for a picnic...

I was never asked for any further detail from the Lodge about the size, age or breed of dogs. Summary of events, my pup was biten by resident male...

We have decided to comment on this, rather late than never. This group booked for 2 adults, 2 kids, 1 baby sitter and 1 puppy. They arrived here with a Grate Dane (the owners said he was over 90kg) and another small dog. On our website and pet policy we ask guests to declare dogs. We have had Grate Danes...

At first glance the lodge seems quite impressive, especially its location. But when we entered our unit (Fire Fly) our enthusiasm dampened. Firsly the location of this particular unit faces the reception and the back of the reception building where various building materials and other unsightly items are stored. The decor needs serious updating, especially the bright orange curtains and...

The comfort & pet friendliness exceeded our expectations. My main objective was to spend a weekend away somewhere where we could take our dogs too. We stayed in leopard suite 5, nice and private, exceptionally comfortable. My only criticism would be the BRIGHT shiny orange cushions & curtains! That besides the chalets are very well equipped, spotlessly clean with a...

This is one of the few lodges in South Africa that accept dogs. And the dogs love it. The scenery is magnificent. The lodge is right inside the gorge, overlooking a stunning rock face. We had a self catering unit which I guess was fine in spite of the orange satin cushions on the bed and the fact that the...

Going to the Lodge in June, my husband didn't expect good fishing but he used the weekend to recce the river to find ideal spots. And there are many (he says). Fishermen are the most optimistic people I know... even if they don't see a fish, they're sure that fish must be lurking nearby! Beautiful scenery in winter, so summer...

Komati Gorge Lodge is a hidden treasure. Located in the High veld region of South Africa it is slightly off the beaten track, however it is well worth making a little extra effort to get there. Lodge management and staff are welcoming and accommodating. We stayed in the hotel style of accommodation - rooms are spacious and tastefully decorated. The...

“The Leopard suites offer more privacy (self-catering option). More romantic; luxe. They have thatch roofs. There is also a 'hotel-like' option, with rooms right on the river (you can hear it babble). These do not have the self-catering option. Also no thatch roof (some people prefer that)”
