About Lino's Lodge

Lino's Lodge comprises eight single or sharing chalets, each with a private patio. Relax in a homely atmosphere, close to shops and the Malelane Kruger Gate. Lino's Lodge is also a birder's paradise, with a variety of close to fifty species on our doorstep.

The Kruger National Park is our direct northern border, and the lodge offers spectacular views of game in the park as they come to drink water in the Crocodile River. We also boast a dam with various species of fish for the catch-and-release angler.

All rooms are air-conditioned and feature DStv and a bar fridge. Facilities include a swimming pool and secure parking, as well as a lovely thatched deck and cocktail bar with an open view into the park. In addition, our a la carte restaurant serves the best meals in the region.

      The Deck Restaurant is really nicely situated overlooking the river with loads of bird life and some animals coming down to drink. The staff were very welcoming, but make sure you follow Google maps to Rio Vista Lodge and not to Lino's Lodge as you end up in the wrong place.

      Don't think owners realise how wonderful the rondawels are located for tourist . They can really upgrade it to a three star. The price is the same as Rio Lodge(same owners?), but décor and curtains are not on the same standard. Overall clean with nice bedding, but please look at the following: curtains with block out, full length mirror and baggage rack, as star grading council stipulate for a three star. some patio chairs maybe?reception staff was friendly and helpfulWill stay again.
