We stayed at Needles Lodge for 3 wonderful nights. The lodge was so relaxing and welcoming. The staff made us feel so at home and the accommodation reflected this high level of comfort with all it's facilities. The food was exquisite, the wine cellar impressive and the service irreproachable. Any guest would be ecstatic to stay here.

A very pleasant lodge with great hospitality. Wildlife plentiful inside the reserve and interaction with kudu and zebra was a nice surprise. Very well situated between Malelane and Crocodile bridge entrances to Kruger National Park.
