Book a one night stop over on our way to our honeymoon destination. Wow did not such expect such a treat and surprise. On arrival that evening we received complimentary champagne, flowers, chocolates and burning candles. The best part was the breakfast in bed. African Lodge and staff is the best

Stayed over on our way to cape town, such a friendly place. The receptionist Tuki on duty was very friendly and helpful. We received a nice room, with a free breakfast, that was very delicious. Very centrally located with easy access to the N1. Would return for a second stay in the future. Keep up the good work African Lodge
