When you sit on the deck you feel like being in the middle of the bush. It's a perfect place to recharge the batteries and be in nature. The food was amazing, the staff more than friendly. The rooms are clean.
We enjoyed the nice chalets with outside shower. Especially Chrisi with her vast knowlegde made the game drives exciting. Nomsa and the kitchen team kept us well fed with amazing meals! We will spread the word. Best Price-Value-ratio!
We had such a great holiday there with all the experiences you want to have when booking a safari lodge. Compared to other lodges, I find the knowledge of the rangers particularly noteworthy. Warm hospitality, clean and beautiful rooms and delicious food also distinguish the lodge.
Excellent. Friendly. Superb. Delicious. My wife and I had the privilege of spending a long weekend at Baluleni. We were treated like royalty. The staff are welcoming, friendly, hospitable and went out of their way to make us feel welcome and at home. We had some fantastic game drives with Jan, highly recommended. The highlight were the meals prepared by the extremely talented Tumelo, every meal was tasty homecooked deliciousness. Christina and Heike went above and beyond to care for us during our stay. We will definitely recommend and will be back.
We thoroughly enjoyed our 6-night stay in the Baluleni Safari Lodge. The staff and service we received were excellent. The ranger we had Jan was extremely knowledgeable and helpful and could not do enough to make our game drives and stay enjoyable. The meals were excellent as well as being around the Boma at night being served chef-cooked three-course dinners. Our chalet was comfortable and game wandered past us frequently.
Baluleni is an amazing and special place. There are no fences and the animals move through the Lodge's grounds freely. It is located next to the river and some of thre chalets look onto thre river and a water hole. The staff is very friendly and accommodating and the food is delicious. We stayed in one of the tents first and then in a chalet. Both are comfortable and offer all amenities you would expect at a very good rater. Baluleni gave us a rreal feel of the bush and I can highly recommend it.
We visited this lodge and had the most unexpected treat on our trip. The lodge is well situated and a short drive to the Phalaborwa Gate in the Kruger National Park.The Grietjie Reserve boasts frequent encounters with the big 5, who roam about freely at the lodge. The best part for us was the constant personal attention we received from Christina, Jan, Nomsa and Annetjie. They are all experts in their respective professions and nothing we asked for was too much trouble for them. The accommodation was very comfortable and clean and the food was excellent. We will most definitely return to this beautiful spot. Game drives were brilliant and the guides were most nformative- we learned a great deal from Jan and Christina about the environment.
Recently we have visited Baluleni Safari Lodge and had the most incredible experience. The location right on the Olifant River with free roaming elephants, Hippos, crocodiles, impala, giraffes, Water buck, amazing bird life and many other animals. You can hear the Lion's from your challet. One of the most surprising part that was the service that we received from Christina (Manager) and her team Nomsa (best chef) and Anniki and other. We have been spoiled to rotten! The food was outstanding and delicious!!! Knowledgeable of Christina and her ranger Jan was great and they took us to several game drives. Also the location of the Safari lodge is 20km away from the Phalaborwa gate which is also great opportunity to get into Kruger park and drive. Although this lodge is directly connected with the Kruger park and part of the Greater Kruger. We have had an outstanding time there and will definitely go back!! Thank you all again for a memorable weekend.!…
Staff were very friendly and helpful. Christina was an amazing host. She went out of her way to make our trip memorable. We had a great time on our game drives with her and she was an excellent guide. The River walk that Jan and Christina took us on was very interesting and informative. My kids enjoyed it a lot. It was lovely to hang out by the pool during the day. My only complaint/suggestion is that they need to put a bigger fridge in the self catering unit. The fridge in there is too small to fit food and drinks etc. Would definitely return for a visit again.
Need more day activities for the children and adults. The food was excellent . The staff was over helpfull. Game rangers very good .They were knowledgeable. Christina was great with everythng. need non alcoholic beers . She went out of her wat to get .
