Our visit was short but unbelievable! All the bedrooms, each with their own private door leading to the beautiful garden was fantastic. If you needed anything.... it was there. Air conditioning, fans, braai facilities, everything that can open and close in the kitchen, pool, towels.....the list can go on forever. Not to mention the elephants, hippos and other game that came to visit. Thank you Peter for the beautiful well equipped lodge for people like us to enjoy. We hope to visit again.

We will never forget our breakfasts and dinners facing the Kruger Park and observing elephants, impalas and hippos. Peter is a phenomenal host and very kind.

I only had the pleasure to stay one night, but will have to return soon for more. This is probably one of the best kept secrets in Malelane! Absolutely wonderful stay, extremely helpful staff and best location ever.
