A great Bed and Breakfast run by a delightful couple who have a passion for their job. My room was HUGE and everything that you could think of was in the room - enough room for all your belongings from counter space to luggage stowage. A great quality bed with firm mattress and quality sheets. A great social place around...

Our second stay at Blue Jay Lodge, the previous in 2009 and it didn't disappoint. Margi & Phillip are such good hosts and the lodge is set in a very quiet leafy area of Hazyview and ideal for getting into the Kruger via the Phabini or Orpen gates. Plenty of birdlife in the grounds too. The rooms are very spacious...

Very friendly and helpful hosts. Rooms very comfortable with nice detail. Self-catering unit was extremely well equipped. If you are looking for privacy, this is not the ideal place. We were a family and had two chalets and it was perfect for us.

The Blue Jay Lodge is a wonderful starting point for KNP adventures that can be easily organized by your hosts Phil&Margie. We felt very welcomed and comfortable while getting together with the other guest on the porch to chat about previous experiences. Our room and the breakfast were perfect treats for our adventures.

Blue Jay Lodge was a pleasure to stay at. Phil and Margi were delightful hosts who served delicious breakfasts every morning without fail. The unit was spacious and very clean. There were always plenty of bath towels available which we do not always find at B&B's. The outside sitting area was cleaned before we wanted to use it. We will...
