We have visited A Day in Africa Lodge twice now. Once as a large group and again as a couple. The first time around the hospitality was amazing and we did not think it could get any better but we were proved wrong. Andre is so attentive to his guests, always ensuring we were comfortable and had everything we needed. He made sure all our dives were arranged for us and arrangements were communicated well in advance so we could plan our time well. The food was exceptional and his staff constantly went the extra mile to make sure we were comfortable. From the accommodation to the food to the activities and hospitality we could not find a fault. We had a superb stay once again!

What a pleasant experience! We arrived to a warm and open welcome from the owner, Andre, and were pleasantly surprised with A Day In Africa Lodge! From the atmosphere, the awesome food from the Elephant Watering Hole Restaurant on-site and the overall attention to detail making this a truly homely and personal experience. The cottage was marvellous, decorated very tastefully in a unique African theme creating a true African Bushveld ambience. The bushveld feeling combined with the bonus of the beach within 5 minutes reach, is the best of both worlds for any traveller! We enjoyed every moment of our stay at A Day In Africa Lodge. From the warm reception we got, to the beautiful scenery by the poolside. We have found our new favourite place in Kwazulu-Natal! Exceptional value for money. The luxury Safari Honeymoon Tents, complete with an air-conditioner and customized bathroom looked amazing! We will definitely be back reserving one of those units in the near future. Thank you Andre for an awesome experience!

Travelling from Croatia, South Africa was a very foreign topic for us. Andre fetched us in Durban 450km away and dropped us back at the airport again, we couldn't believe the effort he put in just to make us feel at home. From the delicious home cooked meals to the multiple day trips the beach, the tembi elephant reserve, lake sibaya and so much more, he made sure that in our short time we were there that we got to see and do everything. Thank you so so much and we will most definitely be back.

I stayed at A Day In Africa for three nights on a scuba diving trip and I had an excellent time! André, the owner of this beautiful lodge, is the kind of person that already makes you feel welcome and comfortable before you even arrive at his place. From the moment of booking till I got back home (I even got a follow up phone call to check if I arrived home safely), the level of customer service was very high. Furthermore, the scuba diving organised by the lodge was magnificent and the food at the extremely delicious. The place is a bit hard to find if you don't know where it is, but just give André a call and he will come and fetch you from the main road. Recommended place!

Room Tip: Try to get a room close to the restaurant, since this is where the WiFi router is. Furthest room...
