What a great experience, let's start with the service from priscilla now this lady made sure we knew exactly what's on the menu, organised great drinks and kept us happy. Food was top-notch , great steak and deep fried hake with a open salad bar.

Very well located for Kruger National Park, the service and catering was exceptional. You can book a wide range of activities from the lodge, including safaris, and the on-site restaurant was excellent in my opinion. Would highly recommend.

We found the food actually quite good and tasty, with a good variety of different dishes appealing to different tastes, freshly prepared. Breakfast was also good, with a live station for omelettes.
