Being back at Makgabeng for a few days last week, I can confirm that the charm,peacefulness of the place, its friendliness ,continue to work their magic.The welcome is friendly,, the bungalows comfortable, , the dinners very good.... The area's main draw is still the rock art at the Makgabeng plateau,the Blouberg mountain, , the fact that it is authentic and quite undiscovered.However it is easily accessible from Polokwane and should be considered as a great option for a couple of nights on the way to the Tuli Block.

We found our stay at the lodge to be pleasant along any dimension that influences whether one has a bad or good experience. The rooms were clean, the staff was friendly, the food was well prepared and meeting and interacting with the owner was the cherry on top and made us certain that we would return to the lodge as guests again in the future.

At first when i heard about Makgabeng Farm Lodge and its location i thought it was just a small and not such good place for one to take your loved one to spend some quality time there. Anyway i took a risk, and with that risk of booking not sure if it was a good place. i want to thank all the people at Makgabeng Farm Lodge for having such a wonderful cultural place, for their wonderful hopitality. i had a great time, the rooms are superb i must say. i was staying at Charlet rooms and i liked the design inside and out, the shower and bath. it was the first and that'll definately not be the last time for me...My home is not far from there but i won't mind spending money just to get the fresh environment, peace of mind. Keep up the good work guys, putting Senwabarwana (Bochum) and Blouberg Municipality on the Map.
