Very nice lodge, with great service, kind hosts, friendly staff. No complaints, would recommend it to friends and family. The national park is only a 20 minute drive away and is beautiful. Thank you, Maralize!

Wonderful guesthouse with cosy pool and lounge. Much attention to detail. Very friendly personnel. Excellent but rather expensive breakfast (150 ZAR/person). Each room has a television set with all channels.
