Dave is very kind. He welcomes you, explains you everything about Phalaborwa and Kruger. He adviced us the Bushvel Terrace restaurant which has good quality and original dishes and is a high class place. Dave also gave us information and maps to visit Graskop and Blyde River Canyon. Sunbird Lodge has wide rooms with very comfortable beds, a desk to sit and work on your laptop with good wifi. Also you will have the opportunity to swim in a large swimming pool in a beautiful garden. Actually a good stay to rest after hours in Park Kruger.
We had a wonderful stay at Sunbird Lodge. We were due to stay somewhere else but they had made an error with our booking. Dave at Sunbird saved the day and we stayed there instead. We were pleased in the end for the error as Sunbird Lodge was by far a much nicer place to stay. Lovely big room and bathroom, wonderful grounds to roam around in, nice size swimming pool and peaceful outdoor seating area with settees. Dave and his wife are wonderful hosts and nothing was too much trouble. We would stay again and would definitely recommend as a great place to stay.
Really nice welcome from our host, and lots of infos given.
Very Nice garden with a relaxing swiming pool.
Next to Phalaborwa Gate entrance of Kruger Park (only 5 minutes drive)
Nice and large rooms
Really, a nice place to relax before or after Kruger Park.
Safe place, nice surroundings.
We had a wonderful time at Sunbird Lodge, our host Dave was very approachable if we needed anything he had it at our beck and call. The rooms we're spacious and they had both air-con and ceiling fans in each room. All the amenities such as bbq, swimming pool a bar and fridge/freezer we available for us to take cans of drink, bottled water, ice and other alcoholic drinks to our rooms during the day and before the bar closed at 9 in the evening, guests we're to write their surname and the name of the unit on a pad, so Dave knew how much we took from the bar and charge it to our room. I liked the names of the rooms as they we're named after the local native birds.
All in all we enjoyed our stay and will return in the near future.

We had a lovely time there. Spacious and comfortable rooms, beautiful garden and nice swimming pool. Dave is the best host. He was prompt to help us with information, directions, and to suit our needs. There is also a home made freshly cooked breakfast which is the best way to start up your day, Dave will make sure of that. The facilities are great and the place is close to everything: gas station, supermarket, restaurants, and Phalabrowa Kruger gate. We hope to be back soon!
