      The lodge has all the amenities one needs, from warm water to breath taking views. Service provided is nothing short of amazing. This lodge has honestly stuck as one of our favorites. Its private, very neat and absolutely comfortable. A must.

      The accommodation was good value for money, and all 4 main rooms were amazing. The 5th room is smaller, but still with its own bathroom and enough space for 2 people. For golfers, the lodge's proximity to the entrance of Elements Golf Course is an added benefit. Would have liked to have seen more game in Mabalingwe, but this is out of the control of the lodge.

Dickie is an excellent game spotter and tracker.We hope to return before too long!
