This was just a great place to be. The jungle garden is magic and Andre made us feel very welcome! I loved the environment and all its options. Deffenitly reccommend this Lodge and the Hluhluwe NP. More special then Kruger and Sabie PNP. 5 out of 5*

The friendly owner of the lodge is a goldmine of information on the greater St Lucia area which he gladly shares. He will also get any additional information needed to enhance your experience and assist with arrangements if requested. Comfortable and clean units set in beautiful treed garden with safe parking next to units.

We spontaneously decided to ask whether there was a free room on these premises because of the wonderful garden with huge old trees! We never regretted it because the owner is an insider who really knows a lot about the region and the hippos. The room was fine for our purposes, and you really got the african feeling. We'll definitely...

The well-equipped rustic bungalow met our expectations. The host/owner, Andre, was very friendly, helpful and full of advice of places and restaurants to visit in the area. Andre is so willing to share his passion for wildlife and the surrounds of Lake St Lucia - even after you have left. Bonus was the lone hippo wending its way through the...

The price is not expensive, the host is very kind and nice. But the condition of room/unit is not very good. It's not very nice, the unit is old. Take a show on the bath is not a good option. But the view is nice, and the town is great place to go. The unit is close to all facilities

Great value and brilliantly situated. André is a terrific host. He was full of advice and good suggestions. It isn't luxury - but it's perfectly comfortable and hippos will wander past your bungalow at night and early morning. We stayed two nights and really enjoyed our stay.

I am sad to be back home. What a beautiful place, clean, peaceful. Andre the host/owner was so friendly and helpful could not have asked for a better place to stay. We will definitely be back, soon than later. Have only been back a few days but I am missing Lake St Lucia terribly.
