We stayed at Sefapane for 1 night straight after flying in from London. After reading previous reviews, I'd requested a quiet location and our unit was well away from any road noise - nor was there any noise from the large corporate group who were staying and partying that night! We'd booked a 6 sleeper but our accommodation - more... More

This lodge is really nice. We really enjoyed our stay in the spacious hut. Very clean and beautiful lodge. Even better is the food.
