We visited Izingwe Lodge just after Christmas, making the journey from our base in Capetown. What an absolutely wonderful experience! If you are reading this and considering a visit don’t think about it any more, book it!

Our small party of four had exclusive use of the resort.

I've had the pleasure of staying at Izingwe Lodge on several occasions. No review could properly convey how incredible of an experience you get when you stay at this lodge. The managers, Angus and Marion, were born to do this type of work. They are comfortable with their guests a

Dear Beth Thank you so much for your review. We so enjoyed hosting you and your family at Izingwe during December. It is always wonderful to host people like yourselves that enjoy spending time on game drive, observing the animals and their behavior. Often, some of the best sightings result from just sitting quietly on the game drive vehicle, watching the animals. We will remember your day of departure always, with the picnic in the rain and all the laughs that went with it. We wish you well for 2017 and hope to see you back at Izingwe soon. Kind regards The Izingwe Team

I was blessed to be a guest at Izingwe in 2015 and 2016. Not being experienced in Africa, I was surprised to see mountains and grassland as we helicoptered in from Jo'berg. Big ground, big sky, wide open and wild country. . . . and then IZINGWE!. Brilliantly sited at the top of

Dear Jeb Thank you for your great review. We feel so privileged to have hosted you on your very first trip to South Africa last year, and on your return this August. A very special country, and Izingwe Lodge is a very special Lodge. It is always wonderful to see the bush through the new eyes of our guests. Indeed the position of the Lodge is magnificent, overlooking Leopard Creek and valleys of the Waterberg Mountain range. We hope to welcome you back at Izingwe during 2017. Kindest regards The Izingwe Team.

Dear Bay Many thanks for your great review. We thoroughly enjoyed hosting you and Bob at Izingwe. We did indeed have many incredible game sightings with you both at the Lodge itself and on game drive. It is always a treat to watch the elephant drink out of the Lodge's infinity pool. The sighting that we had with you of the cheetah being chased by a group of male baboons was a highlight for us as well. We hope to see you back at Izingwe again soon. Warmest regards The Izingwe Team
