From the moment we arrived and were greeted by juliet we realised we were in for a very special experience. We were there to celebrate our golden wedding anniversary, and the whole stay ( 6 days ) was five star treatment. Our accommodation was amazing,...More
We stopped by African Rock Lodge during our honeymoon and it was definitely the highlight of our 2 weeks trip in SA.

In general I also recommend to hire a car in Jo'burg and drive to Hoedspruit by yourselves, the drive is 5hours and the main benefit is that you have more flexibility to move around the area whilst here, the flight to Hoedspruit is quite expensive and especially for a family it will financially make more sense to hire a car. Even the Kruger national park can be driven by yourself, in which case you only pay entrance fees (R280 per person), and petrol of course. There are different options for game drives on private big 5 game reserves in the area, as well as full day Kruger trips in an open vehicle. With your own car, you would also be flexible to do the panorama route (blyde river canyon) in a day trip by yourselves easily (I will give you a map at the lodge).. I mailed you with details. I can assist you with the bookings of activities if you would like.
