Property's Favourite Review
Since the early 2000s, my family and I have been visiting Tienie and Gerd at their piece of paradise nestled within the Dinokeng Game Reserve. In 2014 I started sharing these special trips with my boyfriend - now husband and iKhaya LamaDube has become our retreat of choice - an hour and a bit away from home. Although my life cycles and the way I have experienced iKhaya LamaDube have changed, iKhaya LamaDube has always remained consistent. • Consistent in their amendities • Consistent in their service • Consistent in their attention to detail • Consistent in wowing us with their ongoing upgrades • Consistent in their passion to give their guests the most unique experiences under the African sun Written word would never do iKhaya LamaDube justice - it's a getaway you have to experience yourself. I'll never be able to explain in the right words how wonderful it is to arrive and be greeted by Cynthia with a refreshment and hand towel to cool off, or how you'll find comfort in seeing Philip's friendly, ever-welcoming smile at your door if you need any assistance with anything, or how there are always delicate touches and new surprises to find that Tienie has conceptualized with love to ensure that every bit of your stay is memorable. Although iKhaya LamaDube is situated in a Big-5 game reserve, the plethora of wildlife you see from your unit seems like a bonus as you become totally overwhelmed during your stay with a sense of peace, privacy and tranquility. We can't wait to go back - the next time, and the time after that, and the time after that and the time after that.

Exactly like the photos on the website. Beautiful, clean accommodation. We enjoyed our stay and loved the view and peaceful environment. The birdlife is great and we saw a giraffe on our way to the lodge. The staff was helpful and friendly.

An amazing lodge place within Dinokeng. We booked a poolside cottage and luxury villa but got an upgrade to 2 luxury villas and they are really luxurious. Huge villa, very clean with great view, slash pool and an amazing braai area. All in all amazing.

A beautiful stay this was, the view the game drive, everything was just so perfect. A 30 min drive from home away from home. I would recommend this to anyone wanting a peaceful weekend away, a change of scenery that comes with a breathtaking sunrise and sunset.

The Wildlife was also fresh, the Lions had just been re-introduced and the safaris were wonderful, I would say that having had lots of travel experience, with many lodges surrounding the Kruger National Park, I would agree that iKhaya is right up there with the best of them. Some animals are collared, but this is very necessary, being a Wilderness Guide I can fully understand the reasons. Tinie and Gert make excellent hosts and are both passionate about the comfort of their guests. There was not a fitting choice under When did you travel?. so I used the oldest date possible, but it was a few years ago that I visited.

Thank you for taking the time to come back and recollect your stay at iKhaya LamaDube! Yes, collaring our animals is an absolute necessity to keep them safe within the reserve. We hope to see you again soon!

The deluxe unit was beautifully appointed, immaculate, clean, and well serviced. I would recommend this lodge without any reservation and we will be going back in future. Unfortunately this review page does not allow for comments to be addressed directly to the operator thus the following inclusion. Getting the hot water in the shower to be consistent was a challenge and requires some patience even though there is no lack of hot water. Kettle did not work because of the manner in which the power is supplied to it. Please put handles on the cupboards because not all of the touch releases do not work as they should. A suggestion is to put some form of a door on the ally that leads from the parking to the fireplace because the wind does howl through there.
