              The lodge is very nice and the atmosphere is really romantic; the owners are very kind and do anything possible to make you enjoy your stay. Etienne and his mother are excellent chefs! The Kruger Park is about 30 minutes away and Marloth itself is a park where you can meet giraffe, zebra and monkeys. When you are travelling during winter, remember that in the rooms there is no heating.

              We spent 6 fantastic nights at Maqueda Lodge and enjoyed every minute - this really is a very, very special place to stay! From the moment we arrived we were made to feel like close family (the welcome type!). Nothing was too much trouble for the van der Nest family and they really were the perfect hosts. The location is simply stunning and seeing and hearing all the wonderful wildlife on your doorstep is just amazing! The food cooked and prepared by Etienne and Joyce (and served by Francois!) was quite possibly the best food we have ever had. Francois and Etienne were more than happy to arran...

              I have been to a few upmarket lodges in the Kruger area, but I have never ever experienced anything like Maqueda Lodge. The lodge was beautifully and creatively decorated. It was all very clean. The rooms were comfortable and had both an indoor and an outdoor shower. One morning I was taking a shower outside, while lions were roaring on the background!!! And last but NOT least, was the service. It was FAR above average. The family (vder Nest) was so extremely friendly and warm. They really made us feel part of their family. And the food (prepared by them) was superb! Their cuisine can easily...

              We had a wonderful stay and the lodge was of the highest standard. Great food, good company and a great place to visit. Thank you very much to the Van der Nest family which made us feel at home since the minute we arrived at the lodge. We can highly recommend this place if you want to have a great African experience...

              Maqueda is certainly in the bush! We entered Malelane Gate of Kruger Park to reach it. Great rustic lodge. Our hosts were absolutely lovely people and made us feel very welcome. Breakfast was our best in three weeks of travel. It was served on the open air porch and we were accompanied by a visiting warthog looking for scraps! Quite an isolated location with two restaurants to visit. These also follow the rustic theme and are adequate....the highlight being the mini night game drive to reach them! The springbok nursery residents were probably as surprised to see us as we were to see...
