The Chef Thabo outdone himself, by far the best burgers and chips I have ever eaten. The Barman David awesome guy catered to us and kept us company, great conversation.!!Ella the manager, made sure our stay was good.The only downside is that the activities posted online were not available. But our stay was good nonetheless.

Die gasvrou was baie behulpsaam en vriendelik en maak lekker kos. Die kamer was baie mooi skoon, maar die geriewe, uitleg en grote van die kamer is beslis nie die prys betaal werd nie. Die gemeenskaplike "winter room" met kaggel was heerlik en kinders kan lekker buite speel.

Loved the peaceful nature of the place. Gavin the manager of the place is a really wonderful guy. If you are looking to get away from it all and relax with nature this is the place to be.Leave your expectations at home. And just be.Looking forward to visiting again...

Susan was incredible. She was accommodating and assisted us with every request, which included allowing us to change rooms. The room itself was lovely. However, we were disappointed with the lodge. We chose the tented accommodation as it said it overlooks a waterhole where the animals could come drink. The waterhole was dry mud. The Vaal river is not visible from the lodge which was unexpected.... Read more
