Great value for money during weekdays - Great accommodation facilities! Great location. Lots to do at the resort itself and the Sudwale caves (almost on the premises) is an absolute bonus (a must do). Friendly and helpful staff' Would definitely stay there again!

This resort is located approximately 1.5 hours West of the southern entrance to Kruger National Park. The amenities are basic but quite comfortable. I would recommend this lodge for anyone seeking reasonable accommodations within reasonable proximity to some great sightseeing

We were not in unit 310. The unit we were in had a double bed. They told me only two adults and two children were allowed in my unit. We didn't have children. There were two long sofas which would easily sleep someone without pulling out. I don't know if they were sofa sleepers or not. There was a shower as well as bathtub. The sofas were in a large living room area.

Summer is always an awesome time to visit that specific area of South Africa. You will definitely need a car...Drive from Sudwala Lodge to Kruger National Park = 86 km +- 1h30 minutes. Start with the Panorama route...awesome..so many things to do and places to visit.
