This time not recommendable

The lodges impression overall was quite nice. It could have been a wonderful special place, if there had been a real manager. Because the lodge is to be sold, there is nearly nobody who feels responsible for maintaining or hospitality. We were lucky to meet there a very friendly and helpful couple which was there on duty just by accident. They made us feeling comfortable as far as possible. Our advice: make sure that there will be somebody by the time you will stay there.
Run down B&B

After having experienced quite some communication difficulties upon making the reservation for this B&B (especially the manager, ms. Lyzelle van de Merwe let us down), we were wellcomed as the only guests by a nice guy named Munia, i.e. the cook/janitor/receptionist/park ranger all in one.His friendliness and excellent service however couldn't hide the degree by which this place was utterly run down: leaking outside pipes, worn out bathroom with cracked showerhead, peeling paint, a "swimming pool" one expected to be the habitat of a few crocodiles,a gloomy dining room and the overall impression of sadness and decay. Apparently the last visit of the manager, ms. van de Merwe dates back from... late 2011. Clearly a case of insufficient supervision of this sad place by an uninterested management . Never again.

We had a lovely stay at the lodge. Everyone is very friendly, the food was well prepared, our compliments to the chef. The rooms and facilities are very neat. The decor was stunning! Overall, we had a nice experience at the lodge, and will definitely go there again, this time for a longer period!

A wonderful much-needed break from the city

My stay at Bivack was just what I needed to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. The place is beautiful and tranquil, allowing the guest to be totally relaxed and at ease. Our go-to guy Munya was wonderful and very attentive.
It was really hard to leave the lodge after our stay. Thank you for a wonderful time.
We had a great stay

Very enjoyable! Unfortunately too short. Great amenities and hospitality. Cook par excellence! Still have flashbacks to time spent around a busveld fire. Thanks again

We chose Bivack to stay over en route to Mapungubwe National Park, but ended up spending more time at the lodge than planned, due to its spectacular scenery. The personal touch provided by the owners is rarely found, which enhanced the experience even more. The natural beauty of the property and the Limpopo bordering it, is something every nature lover will treasure. A superb setting which is highly recommended. Your kids will just love this place, as there is a pair of tame Banded Mongoose playing with them all day long.

It was an excellent break! It is not often that one has such a fantastic level of service and laid back luxury combined with a feeling of familiarity. It has a wonderful atmosphere the main camp which is totally conducive to relaxation and winding down. The staff and owners are attentative to detail and what makes it so special is that they are incredibly flexible and plans are made in accordance to what can be seen and when.
