Very nice place yo visit. Nice rooms, nice breakfast, very gently host, they allways find the way to help. We forget some documents and they send them all by email. People here was born for this kind of job. Thanks a lot for everything
We had a wonderful time at Sunbird Lodge, our host Dave was very approachable if we needed anything he had it at our beck and call. The rooms we're spacious and they had both air-con and ceiling fans in each room. All the amenities such as bbq, swimming pool a bar and fridge/freezer we available for us to take cans of drink, bottled water, ice and other alcoholic drinks to our rooms during the day and before the bar closed at 9 in the evening, guests we're to write their surname and the name of the unit on a pad, so Dave knew how much we took from the bar and charge it to our room. I liked the names of the rooms as they we're named after the local native birds. All in all we enjoyed our stay and will return in the near future. Peter & Sheryl Stanford (Elder & Sister Stanford )
We had a lovely time there. Spacious and comfortable rooms, beautiful garden and nice swimming pool. Dave is the best host. He was prompt to help us with information, directions, and to suit our needs. There is also a home made freshly cooked breakfast which is the best way to start up your day, Dave will make sure of that. The facilities are great and the place is close to everything: gas station, supermarket, restaurants, and Phalabrowa Kruger gate. We hope to be back soon!
Excellent overnight stop after a long day's drive, before heading into Kruger Park. We used to stay at another establishment that has gone downhill, so were looking for an alternative. Very happy with our choice and plan to use this lodge in future. Spacious, quiet rooms ( single storey with full height ceiling), private terrace overlooking well-kept gardens, lovely pool and areas to sit in the garden. The total site is about 2 acres so much better than some of the other lodges in town. Room had both ceiling fan and aircon, a good shower room, fridge and tea making facilities. Cold beers were available in an honesty bar. We had such a peaceful rest and enjoyed a really good breakfast. Secure parking directly behind the rooms. Email communication with hosts very efficient - I…
Very clean place. Rooms are quite big as well as the bathrooms. 5 minutes driving and you are inside the Kruger Park. I used this lodge as a stop to avoid driving 7-8 hours from Johannesburg before reaching a lodge inside. Place is very quiet and well kept. Just outside there are restaurants with very good food and play areas for kids. Owners are very friendly and collaborative. For any question, they have an answer!
