We had the pleasure of staying three nights and very much enjoyed it. Our cottage was spacious, clean, beautifully decorated and we loved sitting on our little verandah surrounded by bush and birds singing. The lodge, pool area and deck are equally wonderful, breakfast and dinners are very delicious and I much appreciated the veggie option. Didn't see any animals...

Here we found a paradise in the middle of Africa's pride: the Kruger Park. We were well looked after by the dedicated, warm and talented hosts. Since Mette and Michael are Danish, it felt like we met at a common arena, in a respectful way in the African environment with Scandinavian touches/design. We highly recommend this resort!

We recently stayed at the Mbizi Bush Lodge. The lodge itself is beautiful. it was clean, tastefully done and private. Only had space for 8 guests made the experience more special. The hosts were very kind and looked after us very well. We would highly recommend to anyone looking for accomodation in this area.

Truly one of the best places I have ever stayed. Beautiful buildings in the wilderness surrounded by nature and wild animals. A nearby watering hole draws the animals close and the infinity pool sometimes draws the elephants even closer. The breakfasts were great but the dinners blew us away. Amazing food freshly prepared and served in a beautiful dining area....

We really enjoyed our stay at Mbizi, the rooms are spacious, nicely decorated and Mette and Michael are really great hosts. The most exciting part for us were the animals, the loge is not fenced so wild animals come and go ... We saw an elephant passing by and having a sip from the pool on our first day there....

Michael and Mette are the perfect hosts. This is a hidden treasure in the bush and so wonderful to see the animals coming down to the waterhole. The food was superb! We felt like family! Thank you for a memorable stay.

We have visited a number of game lodges in Africa and this must have been the best value for money we have ever had. Mbizi gave us an experience every bit as luxurious as other lodges that are 4 or 5 times the price! Excellent food, accomodation, service and game viewing in a beautiful location.

Dear Isabelle Thank you for your nice review, we are glad you found your stay perfect. We are sorry about the wifi, it is a problem to get a stable connection here in the bush, but as you said it's about the nature and the bush, so maybe it is also quite healty to be off line for some days....

Dear Canadians Thank you very much for your nice review. We are sorry about the elephants, you just missed them, they have been here for the last week and been drinking from the pool, so you'll simply have to come back and enjoy them too. We hope you enjoyed the rest of your stay in SA and are arrived well...
