Wonderful lodge near Ohrigstad in Mpumalanga with every detail taken care of from arrival to the very end of our stay. Situated on a private nature reserve, the lodge offers excellent birding and nature walks. It's near the Blyde River Canyon, which was our "en Route" to the Kruger National Park, and is ideal to explore the spectacular Panorama Route and the Kruger Lowveld region when staying at Iketla Lodge. The private patios provide magnificent views of the valley below, mountains, cliffs, and indigenous forests. We had “Romance Chalet” that offers just that little more for a special occasion. or not. It is more spacious than the other chalets, and “Romance Chalet” offers as well a bath with an exquisite view into the bush and a larger open-air shower. Very secluded and idyllic! Fantastic staff and great service. The food was delicious, the setting was so relaxing and beautiful. I will never forget the chef cook coming every evening to present us with the menu. She was very shy, but went out of her comfort zone and made our stay even more colorful. They offered us luxury in a stark wilderness. No comfort was overlooked. From the initial welcome to the daily smiles and greetings to the culinary offerings to the attentive assistance. Would highly recommend it to anyone wanting an authentic African experience. Would recommend at least two nights to take full advantage of what is on offer.

Really enjoyed my stay here! I swear the staff and owners have a manual re customer service lol. Very considerate and goes out of their way to make ones stay VERY comfortable. Premises are excellent and very clean. The food is well prepared and presented! Tastes as good as it looks!! I really can’t empathize enough on customer service! Value for money indeed! A special shout out to Lizzie :-) what an over achiever! I guess she takes after her boss / leader Greg who leads by example. Thank you guys!

Beautiful, comforting, clean Lodge with a good view and a outside shower. We've got upgraded to the honeymoon Lodge. There is a lot of privacy with every Lodge but ask for the one with the view. The lapa is cosy, the food was amazing and the staff (gregg and linsey were so nice en helpfull) Great place to stay when you want to discover the panorama route and you want to have a peacefull relaxing time. You van hike in de Nature reservaat and discover kudu/springbok etc.

Lovely marked walks at different abilities, well worth going on one. A nice little curio shop with good prices. Would definitely return for another stay.
