Johannesburg, South Africa

I stayed at the lodge for 2 weeks in a row, that is how much I liked it. I particularly enjoyed the breakfast, the comfort of the bed and the views from the room. The restaurant staff is friendly, accommodative and consistent.

There is only one thing I did not like, housekeeping does not refill toiletries if you are staying longer than one day. At one point I had to use handwash for showering, the issue was quickly resolved once I complained. Other than that, i would definitely recommend Nkomazi Kruger Lodge!

Nkomazi Kruger Lodge offers an ideal stopover for anyone travelling to Maputo. Rooms are large and well equipped, including air conditioning and beautiful views of the tranquil pond. Staff are friendly and very helpful, working hard to make your stay enjoyable. The restaurant menu tends to be a little limited, but the quality of the food was amazing!

The water for the shower was cold in the evening and in the morning. Not a great feeling to get cold water in winter time. The service at the bar/restaurant was poor. After my second drink i had, the waiter did not even ask again if i would like aNother drink. Then i have order peri peri chicken because the chev told me its one of there specialities. So thats what i did, but after a long wait without any drinks, the chicken was served cold and was not even braai properly. It was really disappointed. They can lift the standard on that and then it will be a awesome place to stay

Dear Jlomba665271 Thank you for your review. It is with great sadness that I read your review. Unfortunately we have been on lockdown for nearly 2 months and you were one of the 1st guests we welcomed back with just skeleton staff, such as a chef, barman/waiter (which was not even on duty). Disaster! With all the equipment being inactive they seem to give problems. Please except my sincerest apologies for this bad experience. Hopefully we will be able to welcome you back in the near future as our guest and set the standard and record straight. Regards & Blessings George Host/Manager

Our two night stay at Nkomazi lodge was not the best and not the worst we have had. The accommodation was relatively clean and comfortable, although not all remotes worked so TV and aircon in the bedroom were a challenge. I also found the couch incredibly low and uncomfortable.
Breakfast on Sunday when the lodge was full was great as was dinner the night before.
Sadly despite having booked inclusive of breakfast the kitchen staff were not ready for us when we arrived for breakfast at 07:30 on Monday and it was very clear that they felt our attendance at breakfast was an imposition as the service was both slow and unfriendly, it's a pity as all the other staff went to great lengths to be friendly and make sure everything was okay.

The place has pristine lawns with a magnificent lake feature. Staff friendly and helpful. The Sugar Train has a variety of offerings: this can be optimized to offer different dishes for different days. A buffet for twice a week will be highly appreciated.

Otherwise, it was pleasure being your guests!

The place is very relaxing and tranquil. The only problem was the rooms, on Saturday morning, the plugs weren't working. We only had lights on. It is also not so convenient if you don't have a car, as you cannot be mobile to and from town, you'll have to pay a lot of money for the shuttle.

Please provide with at least one window with burglar bars for fresh air. The rest was perfect . Very friendly personnel. New and modern building. I do not know why the review must have 200 characters .

I currently would not recommend to anyone, the good service was mainly at the restaurant Precious was amazing she made the stay with while. The cleaning ladies were also very friendly cleaned well however the floor were dirty, the cleaner was alone on the day I guess she couldn’t have coped with all the work alone the apartments are huge anyway. The cleaning lady did a very good job with everything was only the floors in the bedrooms. There’s not enough lighting in the kitchen and lounge otherwise rooms are specious with nice African inspired deco. Some of the kitchen utensils seem old the kattle didn’t switch off either upgrade is required there

Comfort, luxury, easy, tranquil and beautiful. Thank you. And the service at check in was par-excellence 👌🏽Dinner was amazing, our host/waitress for the evening was phenomenal. One actually feels that these people are genuinely glad to have us stay there. Very welcoming. Thank you 🙏🏽And now Kruger game drives are available, with a Spa also advertised, we are looking forward to that on our next trip. We stayed there twice previously when it was Rockvale Ridge in 2017 and 18, and we were absolutely relieved that the place has maintained it's beauty and warmth and excited about the new changes. Awesome place. Thank you.

Rooms are fairly cleaned and maintained.
Receptionist (Nokubonga) gave us a great service, from the booking process, arrival to departure.
Restaurant: Some waiter's could be trained to provide a better service.
Lodge should upgrade their generator in cases of load shedding.
