This Lodge was Beautiful with clean roomm and friendly staff. This was me and my Girlfriend first time visiting Dinokeng and it was a blast. The lodge gave us a complimentary upgrade in the room that was very unexpected. It was Beautiful hearing the Jackel call at noght close to the lodge fence. I will definitely recommend anyone to stay at this lodge.

We received great service from the staff. The conference facilities were clean. Could improve on the snacks provided during the conference. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner were delicious with a wide variety to choose from. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Will definitely make use of Kwalata in the future

My family and I enjoyed a wonderful weekend at Kwalata Game Lodge. On our way to the lodge, we were greeted by zebras, giraffes and impalas. The lodge has extremely friendly staff. The game rangers are very knowledgeable. We saw and learned a lot about rhino's and lions when we joined one of their game drives. The chalet was fully equipped and spacious. The food at the restaurant was exceptional. It's a Safari experience very close to Pretoria and OR Tambo Airport. During our stay, we bumped into tourists from Brussels, who could not stop talking about how much they were enjoying their stay. If you want to visit a little piece of heaven, visit Kwalata Game Lodge

We booked a holiday to get away from the noise of the city. The noise at the lodge from the local informal settlement was horrific. Friday evening till 3:00 and Saturday till 04:30 - we could not sleep! When we enquired about this, the lodge said they know about this. Why were we not told when we made the booking? When you go away, you want to rest and enjoy the peace of the bush.

Cozy chalet, friendly staff, small and relaxing place conveniently located from Pretoria. Very neat. Nice game drives with knowledgeable guides. If you are looking for real wilderness, this is probably not your place as it is still very close to the lights of the city.

There is nothing more we could have wanted. Incredible & helpful staff, all the amenities you want and in a super location. We arrived almost at 20h30 and the team asked if we would like them to assist us at the restaurant or if we had to eaten- how incredible and kind!

Location is good. Easy to reach. Well positioned within DInokeng. Chalet requires attention: one plug was burnt out, the kitchen tap was loose and difficult to work with, the bedding was in poor condition - our sheet actually had holes in it. You could feel it was washed a million times. Our chalet also didn’t have all the utensils - there were spoons missing, a cup missing, glasses missing, etc. It was raining the weekend we were there so couldn’t use the boma/braai facilities. The food at the restaurant was really nice. We enjoyed our meal.

nice place but your black female employees that I had to interact with were unfriendly and displayed subtle rudeness and I assume because I am black and the place is usually visited by white people and most likely that my partner who was with me is not black. i suggest some sort of workshop in professional non biased behaviour could help.

After so long of not being able to travel, we booked a weekend away In Dinokeng, a wildlife reserve we had visited twice before but we had never stayed overnight. We booked a specific cottage At Kwalata but when we got there, a group had taken our spot and we were given other accommodation which was not to my liking. It was after all not what I'd booked, so I insisted that we sort something out. I understood that things can go wrong. However, the management, Simon in particular, was very quick to assure us that he would sort things out for us. He asked us to wait in the bar and very shortly he returned, upgrading us and sorting out the problem with very little fuss. We were so impressed with the staff, their friendly helpful manner, that we will return when we can. The room was very satisfactory and very private. The grounds are beautiful with many areas where one can sit in the shade and relax after a game drive. Thank you Kwalata ! My Birthday was very special indeed!
