                      We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 night stay here! We stayed in Mkhulu's lodge which is a beautiful house set a bit away from the lodge. We had a lovely time as a family and couldnt have wanted for anything more.The lodge organised a wonderful picnic basket for us the one day so that we could stay in the game reserve and the meals we had at the lodge were superb. All of the staff were wonderful - Lesley in particular was amazing at his job and extremely pleasant and helpful.

                      We enjoyed our stay at the Lodge, food was excellent and the staff was extremely helpful. We couldn't find the river, but there's currently a drought. The lodge is a good place to stay if your looking to explore Hluhluwe nature reserve or false bay. Just be aware they allow children of all ages, which is a pain when a bunch of children runs around basing things in the lodge and babies are crying while your trying to enjoy nature.

                      We stayed in the luxury Villa and it was amazing. The view is spectacular and the villa well equipped with it's own swimming pool.The rooms are spacious and it is totally secluded and private so a great place to unwind. The bush walk on site is also fabulous and there are a number of attractions around within reasonable driving distance.

                      We stayed at the self catering cottage and it was such a fantastic experience! A lovely secluded spot which had all we needed. Friendly staff and visiting wildlife made our stay a really memorable one. We will be back!

                      The staff etc were really nice and accommodating, the power outages was a bit annoying though.
