Relaxing lodge in the heart of nature

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 9 Mar 2019
This is an intimate lodge, far from everything, but so close to nature: The sunset is wonderful at the pool terrace, the accomodation is spactious, modern, and well fitted (nice to have a bath, a shower and another outside shower). At this place you are disconnected from everything, except from nature: you can see some animals, and definitely hear them. The service is so kind, Charmaine and Rinette have been very welcoming, and helpful to make the stay comfortable. The food and service are also good. The only drawback is the road to reach the lodge: it takes you 45 min from the park entrance to reach the place, with very bad road, thus recommended to have a good car.

Reviewed 5 March 2019

Charmaine and the staff were extremely welcoming, accommodating, and friendly during two night stay. The property is located just ~30 minutes from Hoedspruit Airport (we chose to drive ourselves but they offer a paid shuttle pickup) on a Private Reserve. During our stay, some kudu and zebras were roaming around right next to our room and an array of other beautiful animals were walking around the reserve as well during our drive.

Breakfast and dinner were provided, very filling meals all coursed and cooked by the staff and delicious. Keep in mind she likes to keep the experience focused around the area so wifi is spotty except in the lobby. On site you can enjoy a drink or a nice swim.

They offer a number of tours (to Kruger, on the reserve, etc), both walking and safari and some others once you book so make sure to check those out! The tours pick you up on the property and the guides are very knowledgeable of the animals and do their best to allow you to see as many as they can find. We were able to see 4 of the big 5 during our tour!

If we are ever back in the area you can guarantee we'll be back here :) Thanks Cheetah Paw!

We’ve visited the lodge in February 2019 and had an amazing time.

Charmaine and her team are great and we’re more than welcoming!

The room we stayed in was very clean, spacious and modern decorated. The food and drinks were very good. Highlight was probably the Zebras welcoming us upon check in.

Charmaine helped us a lot during the day by organizing our activities and giving us advices for everything.

We would definitely recommend it and would love to visit again soon.

Charmaine and Rinette were amazing and gave us a lot of good rexommendatiOns. They even change our last minute booking although the website wouldn’t allow us to do so. We just stayed one night and we’re heading to Kruger early morning so couldn’t enjoy the place but everything went perfectly fine. The beds are comfy and the AC worked well and not noisy as it was in the camps in the Kruger Park.
