An amazing and intimate lodge setting, nestle among the wild landscape. The tent was private and had beautiful views. The service was wonderful. The safari guides were extremely knowledgable and made our experience to South Africa epic.

Inzalo Safari lodge was a great choice for a short birthday weekend away, with it being within 2.5hrs from Pretoria. The staff at Inzalo were friendly and always willing to help. The food was absolutely delicious and we enjoyed every meal. I would like to make a special mention to Ren the AM, he was great to converse with and he always had a bright welcoming smile. We saw four of the big five on our first two game drives. They made my husband’s birthday extra special with a cake and romantic turn down. The highlight would definitely be the resident Klipspringer, Mrs Cola, she was the cutest and actually allowed us to feed her.

We were gifted a weekend stay at Inzalo Safari Lodge. From the moment we arrived to the time when we left, the staff went out of their way to make our stay comfortable. The food was excellent and the rooms were 5 star. We enjoyed the outdoor shower and pool on our balcony that overlooked the little stream. We awoke to the sound of birds calling.

This was our 4th return trip to Inzalo. We got engaged there last year in Feb 2023 and decided to Honeymoon there in Feb 2024. From the pick-up at the East gate with an ice cold beverage to enjoy on the short transfer to the lodge, to the friendliness of all staff and everything in between this has always been a thoroughly luxurious get away. The rooms are always excellent. Spacious, relaxing, private and with all the mod cons. The staff are courteous and professional but also welcoming with a 'can-do' attitude. The lodge is spotlessly clean, the décor is tasteful and reminiscent of a bygone era. The game drive experience is always fascinating and entertaining and the snacks are wonderful. The choice of food, preparation thereof and attention to detail of each plate are fabulous and the chefs excelled. Thank you to the team and also to Dave & Henriette for making this a most memorable trip.

I have been to many game lodges in various game reserves and conservancies. Very few made it to my "return list" and Inzalo is such a place. I must say I had my concerns, as one always has, when booking a new destination. But when the clear travel directions arrived, I realized that this place was top class. I was impressed from the moment we arrived to the day we sadly had to leave. The setting is beautiful, the food great and the game drives top notch. The very private rooms set on the river bank, are beautifully appointed and very special. Being a keen birder, it was great to have a knowledgeable and very friendly guide, who did not mind stopping for birds. So many times at these lodges, you find that the guides race after the big five and miss the little things that make the bush so special. Not at this lodge! Wiseman, our guide, was great, very entertaining and never rushing thus adding to the peaceful atmosphere. I also have to mention the other staff, who were extremely professional and very friendly. I cannot wait to return to this beautiful place!!

Inzalo Lodge is relatively new (built approximately 3 1/2 years ago) and everything is in pristine condition. It is in a beautiful position overlooking a river and rocky crag. The camp has the most beautiful trees and plants that are obviously lovingly cared for. Each tent is totally private and spacious. We had plenty of time to enjoy the loungers around our personal pools and chilling on the deck. Inzalo Lodge has the happiest staff I have ever encountered. The staff all work together as a cohesive team and are always willing to go the extra mile. Zaan is an exceptional leader of her team. We felt totally pampered. Sparky, the head chef, makes the most delicious venison pies, profiteroles and muesli. Greg, our ranger, also went the extra mile tracking game and making sure we had numerous sightings of all the special game he could find. We thoroughly enjoyed all our game drives. Thank you everyone for a fabulous holiday.

Inzalo met all our expectations, from superior accommodation, excellent service, quality meals meeting all our dietary requirements, and a most tranquil setting. Management was most welcoming, responded to all our requests and were most knowledgeable of the area and the flora and fauna. We will return.
