We picked this place to split up our drive from Joburg to Manyoni Game Reserve. It looked so wonderful we decided to book 2 nights instead of the 1 in our plans. I'm soooooo glad we did as it was everything and more. Let's start off with the accommodation, it's spotless, wonderfully authentic and set in gardens that are a delight. ✅ The food is all homemade, delicious and so filling. Washed down with a glass or 2 from the most extensive wine reserve I've ever seen. ✅ The setting. As someone has described previously its completely off the grid. I could've sat forever on the veranda watching the river flow by with a glass in my hand ✅ And this review cannot be complete without mentioning the hosts, Patricia and Duifue. They are just wonderful and give this place the homely feel it rightly deserves. We cannot thank them enough for being the perfect hosts ✅💯 If you happen to come across this place by searching the web or however do what we did and book it. Trust me you will not be disappointed with this piece of heaven

We could not have chosen a better place to spend our 45th wedding anniversary. We were really made to feel special and were content and relaxed during the stay. Duifie and the staff were excellent hosts and the food was top notch. A fantastic setting with quality accomodation. We left very happy to have visited this special place.

We really enjoyed our stay at Koubad Farm Lodge a lot. It was much more than we expected. We found a huge farm with lots of lovely people, animals (wild ones and not so wild ones) and excellent food. Luv u Patricia....

A piece of heaven! Quiet and tranquil with thought put into every detail. We were welcomed warmly, the river was flowing, the stars were out, the weather was luscious and the cottage kitted out with everything that was needed. Saw plenty fireflies, birds and insects. Will definitely return to this off the grid bit of paradise!

This was an absolutely fantastic little place to stay for a couple of nights to recharge our batteries as we drove down from the Kruger National Park to south of Durban. I really cannot give Patricia and Daanie (and their team) enough praise, I rate it that highly. OK, so the drive in the dark down the access road was a little unnerving (after a problem with the gate intercom system), but added to the overall enjoyment - it's not often you get an ostrich roosting in the road as you drive it. Our rondeval was spotlessly clean, spacious and very, very comfortable. The shower was powerful, the hot water was plentiful, and there were a host of little goodies for us, including a decanter of sherry. The meals which Patricia prepared herself were simply outstanding. We (a party of 4) tried to convince her to write her own book - Patricia's Game Lodge recipe Book - and I sincerely hope she does. And the game drive with Daanie was outstanding. In summary, an absolute gem of a place to stay. Thanks.

We stayed here for 2 nights in January 2019 on our way from Jo'burg to Sodwana and we have found a little gem!! The rooms and lodge were lovely and sitting on the deck looking out over the river was the relaxing wind down we needed after the long journey from the UK. Patricia was the perfect hostess but I think someone must have told her we needed feeding up as she prepared enough food to feed an army! Dani took us on a private game drive in the morning and showed us a couple of hidden treasures. I was worried about the road on the way out but Patricia kindly followed me to make sure everything was good. I needn't have worried as it was nowhere near as bad as I've read on here and a Toyota Corrola handled it with ease. If you are looking for somewhere to break the journey to the coast I would certainly recommend Koubad.
