The location is very good being so close to the gate. The souther part of the park is wonderfull. The look of the Lodge is very nice. Unfortunately we were no impressed with the rooms or the food.

No suite just 2 rooms joined by a room with 1 couch! Rooms need upgrading! Price high for what you get! Will not be visiting again! Take Doom! Spiders in shower on arrival! Jaccuzi in one room but not enough hot water to fill bath!

Hi, we did enjoy our stay but the family room is very small and ideally should have two bedrooms and another bathroom. Regards.

I would like to advise my review into 2 categories. 1. Staff. 2. Facilities.
I personally think the manageress and staff of Pestana Lodge is Pestana's biggest asset. Their willingness, friendliness and kindness is something they can be proud of.
The facilities of Pestana need attention, on arrival the aircon of our room wasn't working but we were moved the following day to a new room. The deck outside the room needs attention due to rotten wood. The same could be said of the deck at the dining room, the wood needs to be oiled, there are loose poles in the handrailing and at one stage I was worried that the children could fall from the deck. The lights at the handrailing isn't in a good condition either.
But as I said the staff of Pestana made our stay pleasant and we will make use of Pestana Lodge in future.

arrived Friday evening and left Sunday morning. Rooms were fine, as well as service in general with attentive staff. Food was good. All organizational matters were handled perfectly. Nice and very cleanly setting. Sitting on the terrace sipping an evening drink and watching the animals down at the river was an exciting experience.

We loved the location - overlooking the river into the park. We saw lots of game from the pool deck (including a leopard!) which was fantastic. There were good facilities for children and the family room accommodated us perfectly. Overall a really great stay.

The actual traveller was Nancy Scribante - her feedback about Pestana was awesome! She loved the room, the main area, the Camelot Spa and the staff were amazing! We will definitely be keeping Pestana's details on record for future visits to the area.

To all the wonderful members of staff at Pestana Kruger, including Phil who is an amazing chef, I must tell you all that I had an amazing vacation in Africa and that your luxury lodge was wonderful. I would definitely recommend your lodge to my friends and anyone who wants to do a safari in Africa. The accommodation was spacious, the grounds beautifully manicured, the food delicious and the staff very professional. There is even internet access that is complimentary!!!
Thank you all for an amazing vacation.

Accommodation value for money
The service was excellent
Suggest that they look at varying the breakfast and buffet a bit
After 5 days of having the same options for breakfast and dinner it becomes a bit too much
Otherwise very happy to recommend Pestana Kruger Lodge

We have just returned from Kruger. Pestana Kruger is a great option since the price is very attactive and the service is very nice. The location is also a plus and the safari from Lion's is problably the cheapest we could find. In other words... STAY THERE!!!
A Great Stay

Yes, I definitely enjoyed my stay at Pentana Kruger, it was out of this world experience!
The staff was so welcoming and helpful and the atmosphere was very relaxing and calm.
The drive through the nature reserve was so educating and exciting.
The Camelot Spa therapies was so relaxing and the food was simply delicious.
The curio shop got the most beautiful displays , of which I did take some back home with me.
This was genuine value for money!
I will definitely be going to this beautiful place again and again and I would recommend others to this place.
A big thank you to Safarinow.com for directing me to this wonderful experience!
