We enjoyed our stay at Phumelelo. The food was absolutely amazing !!The road to the lodge isn’t so great for people like us with low clearance cars. A lot of frogs though!

Derick, Jonothan and Carina are great hosts and very accommodating. We had a great stay and the food was absolutely to die for. Well done

The game drive was fantastic and very refreshing. The service was also great . The menu can be improved with nicer options to choose from and WiFi poorly connects.

The rooms are beautiful and they have amazing bathrooms! Staff very friendly and cater for every need you have. The food was top notch with loads of attention to detail and taste. Only one small suggestion - during the cold winter nights, an electric blanket would put the cherry on top of a 5-star experience.
