Knysna, South Africa
Reviewed 6 February 2017

Iketla Lodge is very, very beautiful. The location and the views are one of the best during our long trip in South Africa. We loved the views of the outdoor shower ( there is also an indoor shower but we did not use ours ). Very nicely appointed rooms. Gardens very well kept, very good lounge with again: amazing views!...

This was a wonderful stopover on our two day trip around the Panorama Route in Mpumalanga. We loved the attention to detail in the bungalows - outdoor showers with plantings and a view, our bungalow had a great outdoor patio to sit and watch the view of the Canyon, the cleanliness, etc. The food was good for dinner and breakfast....

I would have marked this lodge average but for our room, which although slightly old fashioned in furnishings was spacious and comfortable, with a pretty terrace leading to a path to a private rock overlooking the valley, the views were spectacular and it was a lovely place to sit and watch the watering hole in the valley. The bar, dining...

One of most spectacular routes in the northen part of South-Africa is the Panorama Route. The Iketla Lodge is close to the route and it is a beautiful hotel to relax after visiting the Route. The lodge is developing and in the next couple of years they want to add more animals. The breakfasts and dinners are delicious, with some...

Since we stayed here in 2011 Iketla Lodge has changed ownership, it was wonderful then so we hoped it had not changed too much. We found that it was still wonderful, with friendly, helpful staff, beautiful cottages equipped with everything you should need, and the quiet, peace and tranquility that is reflected by the stunning scenery.
