This was an unexpected treat to arrive at this lodge. The house is away from everything, and situated in stunning bush surroundings in the secure Hoedspruit Wildlife Estate. The house has everything that you can dream of, and the bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms and outside and inside showers are to die for. Driving to the house you see lots of wild and birds in the estate.
Hearing the local zebras and hyenas (from adjacent reserve) in the evening with owls etc just made this place magical. We will be back as much as possible to experience this place again.

What a wonderful place. We had an extremely pleasant 2 night stay in stylish, spacious, comfortable accommodation. Peaceful bushveld and indigenous trees surround the property. Wildlife is at the doorstep. Excellent value for money!

Unfortunately we had no hot water in either en-suite. I called to have this rectified but my call was not answered and my message not returned.
There were also many light bulbs blown around the house, so the place needs to be maintained a little better.
We also didn't receive any cleaning service during our stay which we were not aware of.
Unfortunately I was working in Mountainous area with no reception, and he never left a voicemail on my husbands phone, who had reception and would have attended to his call.
I do have a feeling the geyser switch on the main DO.B. Electrical board was down, or tripped fro some reason, as I have checked with my guests who are in lodge now, they have had hot water.
I have asked my manager to check on the light bulbs in question.
I replied to Mr. Goodall that the lodge does stipulate self cater,and that it is mentioned on the website that arrangements can be made for domestic servicing at an additional cost.

Excellent lodge, my boyfriend and i enjoyed the tranquillity and secludedness of the lodge. Beautiful house. The roaming impalas, the zebras and giraffe which we were welcomed by were truly a great experience. Loved it.

Ons het heerlik gebly in die lodge. Die kombuis is ten volle toegerus met alle nodige toerusting. Badkamers is modern en die buite stort 'n lekker bederf. Ons het ook die braai area ten volle benut en dit was heerlik om buite op die stoep te kan eet. Die kleintjies het die kameelperde en bokke so naby die lodge geniet en 'n plus punt was nog die bure se hienas se geluide in die nag. Voorwaar 'n bosveld vakansie!

A comfortable modern home at a very reasonable price. The stunning setting makes you feel as if you are a million miles from anywhere, but you are close to civilisation. Spacious decks,large bedrooms and bathrooms with great outdoor showers. (indoor showers too!)
Relax in luxury!

A long wooden walkway leads you to a beautifully designed and luxurious lodge, slap bang in the middle of the bush. The bathroom areas are as big as the bedrooms - huge inside shower, as well as an outside shower in the garden - not to mention the bath overlooking the bush and river bed. Modern kitchen with leather couch in TV lounge in case any important sport games are on. Outside dinner/games table on deck. A braai area to die for. Definitely two braais a day here minimum. We only stayed for one night as we were on our way to Timbavati the next morning. But definitely coming back for a few solid days of relaxation, showering, bathing and braaiing.
