We stayed here as an overnight so that my husband could write an exam in Phalaborwa. Dave and Sam are truly wonderful hosts! They were extremely accommodating and really went out of their way to help us and made us feel welcome and at home. The rooms are beautiful and well appointed and the grounds are truly stunning, tranquil and great for birding. The pool is also fantastic, providing much needed relief on our hot lowveld days. Breakfast was also delicious! Thank you Dave and Sam!
Stayed for one night before entering the Kruger. Very friendly and helpful staff, room was clean and prices reasonable. Kettle and fridge in the room, got breakfast bags because we left before breakfast time. Good communication via email. Would love to come back!
I wish we could have stayed longer! The hosts were very friendly and helpful. The garden makes you want to stay, hang out, and watch the birds all day. Everythin was clean and in working order. We'll be back next time we go to Kruger!
I can totally recomend this beautiful Lodge. I stayed in the sunbird lodge twice and both times it was very nice. Once i stayed on my one, and it's a great place to relaxe. Clean and nice furnished rooms, also a very clean swimmingpool. A lovely garden area and absolutely friendly host. Good breakfast and great service. Very close to the town aswell. - A S
