The Rest Zebra Lodge
Reviewed 12 September 2016

My third visit to this lovely lodge. Excellent service, luxurious suites and beautiful views as always, but what impressed me most this time was the birdlife. At first light we heard the melodious duet of a pair of White-browed Robin-Chats. In spite of the severe drought in the area, birds were plentiful. The fauna have been supplemented by blue wildebeest and an adorable newborn zebra fowl.

Room Tip: Suites are different but all good.

Thank you Marina, always a pleasure having you visit the Lodge, especially as you are such a GREAT Birding Expert. Our Cape Robin Chats have had baby's, and are too pretty for words.

Beautiful lodge set in an eco-estate with free-roaming animals and abundant birdlife. Four luxuriously appointed suites. Dining deck and garden have excellent views. Secluded and private, along 1.5 km of dirt road. Huge shade trees, expansive lawns browsed by zebras and impala, large grounds in the estate where it is safe to run, walk or cycle. Swimming pool, bowls, tennis, darts. Ideal for a romantic or small group/family getaway. Meals are excellent and the staff are quietly efficient. Elise van Heerden is a gracious hostess. Close to Kruger National Park and many other attractions. The lodge is a finalist in the Lodge category of the Sanlam Top Destinations 2015 Awards.
