My husband and I stayed here for 6 nights in October whilst we were on our honeymoon in SA. This is the place I miss the most from our honeymoon. Absolutely beautiful suite, beautiful property, amazing food, and the service is beyond words. They made us feel so special since the moment we arrived there by serving us welcome drinks along with refreshing towels, with a leaf with our names written on it!!!! How special!!! The staff: Goodness, Stanford, Jaine, a lovely young man called Bart (intern), and the others were all so great. Sonya, who is the owner of the lodge is a lovely lady, and quite inspirational in terms of what she has achieved with her hard work and management skills. They have thought about every little detail, and that is what impressed me the most.
Living in the african bush, hearing lions, and other animals at night, and yet being in the most beautiful suite with everything you could possibly need, is my idea of heaven.
Safari: We did go for a morning safari and a river boat safari with ranger Christopher, who was so great. The morning safari was within the Grietjie private reserve. It was pretty good for an introductory safari. But I highly recommend the river boat safari, since it gave a completely different view from being in a car. We booked these two safaris with the lodge.
Kruger Park: This place is located close to the Phalaborwa gate entrance. However, for the best safari experience, you do have to drive to the southern part of Kruger, which is doable if you don't mind long days. We did 3 days of self driving in Kruger from here. We left right at sunrise and got back to to the lodge right after sunset. Yes, exhausting long days, but totally worth it! Highly recommend going to the Skukuza gate.
