Placed 15km from Hoedspruit Airport in the Northern part of Kruger Park makes it the most comfortable way to go remote directly. The camp has a luxury sense of simplicity with local architecture, wild game integrated, lovely staff and a great pool, but the ever presence of the German couple Nicole & Manfred makes this place outstanding. We have been...

Because of the ideal location within less than an hour drive to the Kruger National Park (Orpen Gate), to the Blyde Dam of Blyde River Canyon and to the Panorama Route and because of the German language spoken by the owners, I keep coming back to Kubu for the past years. Having been here several times, the personal welcome of...

Coming back to this lode you have to realise tha if offers value for money. even if the distance to Kruger Park is 80 km awa it gives you the bush feelings and ideal to visit all the sights of Mpumalanga. Rooms are large and offers privacy and offers bushfeelings. But beware sometimes you have big groups.

Lovely owners running a well maintained and ever expanding lodge. Rooms were comfortable, although mine was a little dark and more lighting would have been helpful. The food was great and the staff were very friendly

Of a sympathetic German couple run lodge. A neat, well-kept house with functional rooms. No luxury accommodation but quite homey. Beautiful are the walks that you can do with the owner and / or the family dog ​​love. A good location to take to various wildlife watching.

The lodge is away from the not-main-road, about 45 minutes drive away from Kruger. However, it looks lovely and very well kept, staff is very friendly and helpful and food (including the braai that was served on the 2nd evening of our stay, the breakfastpackages and lunch served in Krugerpark during the safari) was really good but not cheap.

We stayed for just under a week and had booked the Hakuna Matata package, which includes all sorts of different excursions. The lodge itself is set in beautiful, spacious grounds, everything is very well maintained and clean. The rooms are very comfortable and tastefully done, and the food is really great - not just at the lodge itself, but even...

This lodge offers you for the price good value and quality rooms. It would be nice to have air conditioning in the hot climate, but you can not expect it for this price. Good food and good position for excursions to the Drakensberg and krueger Park.
