Situated in 2.5 Acres of tropical gardens, Sunbird Lodge is the perfect place to relax and let your stress melt away. Laze by the swimming pool, sit under one of our Lapa's with a drink from the bar or take in the gardens at night looking at the stars, you can do as much or as little as you want.We are a family run business with the emphasis firmly on good quality and friendly service.

As a member of Birdlife South Africa, bird lovers will be in their element, with a wide variety of different bird species in the gardens.We are less than 3km from both the Phalaborwa Gate for the Kruger National Park and the renowned Hans Merensky Golf Estate. The Central Business District of Phalaborwa is less than 2km away making us the perfect choice for the business or leisure traveller. We are less than 5 minutes drive from Phalaborwa airport and car hire can also be arranged.

We stayed here only one night, before embarking on our Kruger Park journey, and after driving by Blyde River Canyon. This lodge is a wonderful little gem run by a very friendly couple. It is located in a nice, quiet residential area, and has very spacious and beautiful grounds. The rooms are fairly simple, but clean and decent, with nice decorations. Breakfast is cooked to order and tasty. The owner is very helpful and gave us very good recommendations for restaurants and Kruger. If you are heading to Kruger after staying here, the Phalaborwa gate is literally a few minutes away. Don't forget to stock up at the Spar supermarket just before the park, where you can buy things for much cheaper than in the park itself.
