                  Since they allow kids to stay there at least they should provide play area for the children. The noise from the N1 is too disturbing.

                  I am definitely going back to Gecko Bush Lodge for a time away from the bizz and buzz of city life. My family and I (Group of 16) went to Gecko Bush Lodge for a Christmas getaway and had a time of our lives, the place is not restricting in terms of their rules, the service we received from friendly and helpful Peter was awesome. We were given our own privacy plus the place is nice, well maintained and spacious, with morning views of animals.This place is incredible and not very far from necessary amenities.1 thing though, please can you start thinking about some sort of cooling system for your...

                  Our chalet was huge for me and my family.The pool although is abit small for 10 people but it was great.If u can build maybe 1 big pool or 2 more pool the same size as the one next to the lapa.The service from Peter was beautiful. The animal watching while they wonder around the houses is beautiful and the kids loved it.Please make a plan with the wasbs that build their nests on the windows as we were nearly bit by 5 of them that I managed to kill.The traveling from the railway is abit intense for small vehicles and as soon as u enter Gecko Lodge, there are quite a few mud spots which made it...

                  Our stay at Gecko Bush Lodge was amazing, the rooms where nice more especially the main room very big and lovely. Everything we needed for cooking was provided except they didn't provide sugar, coffee,tea etc. to use in the morning. But overall great service and weekend well spent.

                  We could shut down completely. No noise, no hassles. Peter was an amazing host, very friendly. Checked in regularly and made sure we were fine. Nice cozy chalet, had everything we needed. Very peaceful area, will be going back real soon.
