Iketla is in a truly beautiful spot with uninterrupted views out over the valley and hills. The new managers, Adri and Reino, are doing an amazing job and nothing was too much trouble, even finding out about hikes for us from Albert the owner and printing out maps too. The food was delicious and pre dinner drinks round the fire...

Conveniently located near all the Blyde river canyon attractions and some 'boer' settlements, the iketla lodge is a nice location to rent a cottage. Ask for one of the cottages with a view. Dinner is included and very tasteful, the hosts are friendly in a professional way. From here, you can drive around the canyon for a day, see all...

We stayed 3 nights in early April and found the Lodge very relaxing and well appointed. The location is perfect for the Panorma Route and the Blyde River Canyon. The hosts were very welcoming and informative. We found the evening meal nothing extra special, but perfectly acceptable. Good overall value for money. Would recommend Monsoon on the R527 as a...

We had planned to arrive at the lodge in the late afternoon but because our train to Johannesburg was 6 hours late we did not get to the lodge until 11pm. We had asked if they could leave a sandwich for us and were apologetic for keeping staff up. We were told not to worry and arrived to a terrific...
