Thank you PHELWANA GAME LODGE for an unforgettable bush experience. We received 5 star treatment far beyond our expectations. The staff at Phelwana certainly made the trip worthwhile. The service is that of a 5 star lodge and I would definitely recommend this getaway destination. Will definitely be back.

The friendliest stuff ever, the food was to die for (compliments to the Sheff), the service we received was out of this world so basically everything was a five star excellence. i liked the privacy of our room and the nature surrounding it.

Exceptional quality and bang for buck! Not only was the accommodation clean, fresh, and what you expect from a 4-star lodge but the staff were tremendously friendly, assistive, and accommodating. The game drives were informative, well timed, and professional. I cannot remember the last time I had such a great lodge experience!
