We did not sleep at River Lodge as it was a business meeting for the entire day. We were taken there by Sefapane Lodge with open safari vehicle to the River Lodge. The staff was very friendly at the lodge that is situated next to the Olifants river. Light Breakfast was ready for us the minute we arrived. The only...

Sefapane was the first of 5 lodges that we stayed at on this trip to ZA. Our initial impression of Sefapane was spoiled right from the very beginning. The "greeting" at reception was appalling, the lady behind the desk was unhelpful, disinterested and uninformative. It almost seemed beyond her ability to even inform us where to meet our guide as...

I really loved this lodge. Very clean and amazing staff. I highly recommend the Ostrich filet for dinner :-) I can only hope I end up on another Kruger trip soon so I can stay Sefapane. I think this is a family run place. The staff seem happy and very helpful. The owner truly is involved in running the place...

I'm currently staying over at Sefapane lodge on a work trip for the weekend and truly enjoyed my stay so far. I arrived last night from Giyani where the accommodation was really bad at the Oasis lodge, so my level of optimism was a bit shattered. But what a lovely surprise to come here and receive warm welcome. The best...

The lodge is close to Kruger National Park and Spar. I really had a fantastic time in Sefapane Lodge with my family. The environment was so relaxing and I will definitely come back. Keep the good work up guys.

Beautiful, modern, well equipped and spacious guest houses! We stayed in Ratel, which was within view of the family pool. (Although the first day the noise from the main road was slightly distracting). Plenty of space...the guest lodges really do have 8 proper beds. Service before we arrived and when checking in was fantastic. Our only complaint is about the...

The area where the lodge is situation is great, always cool, the water streams next to the houses make the place look like you are in heaven. No noise, you just enjoy nature of, trees, birds and the fishes.
