Great lodge with nice food, nice staff, nice guests and most importantly nice hosts! We loved our stay at this lodge. Everything from the room to the scenery with animals was great. The hosts were also very helpful and attentionate, and were able to book tours for us.
Thanks again Vincent and Toni for making your place feel like home.

We’ve come back to this wonderful Sunset Lodge and this time we’ve brought the whole of our family.
Not only did we find an abundance of animals at the lodge & on Safari but our family enjoyed extensive excursions & was treated so specially at this fabulous lodge. The children (big & small) had a magical experience. Thank you so much Vince & Toni

Location is fantastic, a truly memorable bush experience. Whilst having a braai a Hyena walked straight past us smelling the delicious food our host was conjuring up. Clean comfortable rooms, great food and even better hosts. Thank you Vince and Toni. I travel a lot to various places and this was truly up there with some of the most memorable stays I have had.

We stayed with our family for three nights. We were given two seperate very nice rooms, which were very clean and with good quality bedding. This was no extra fee even though we initially booked one family room. Breakfast and dinner were very good! We had no load shedding because they had solar power stored. Every evening a nice fire to sit around and this is also where a part of the food was made. Good wines and drinks. A quick lunch was no problem and very good. Vincent and Toni were always around for questions, a good tip or just a nice chat. They were very knowledgeable. We did some really good tours via their site. Everything for a very, very reasonable price. The area of their place is nice with a lot of animals. We had a really wonderful time and would recommend this place to anyone.

We’ve travelled back to the most wonderful find in Hoedspruit. Sunset Game Lodge is most wonderful experience in our 20 years of visiting South Africa. The bush drives, the quad biking experience and visits to local attractions have all added to our adventure.
Toni and Vince are, once again, perfect hosts and nothing is too much trouble. The food is excellent and drinks flow freely
I really cannot recommend this lodge enough. We we definitely be back early next year

Sunset Game Lodge is the best accommodation we've ever been in. Immediately again, but then longer. The owners are incredibly lovely and helpful, and we learned a lot about nature from Vincent. Wake up with Buffalos in the front of the room, eat dinner with the Impalas behind you, go for a walk with Vincent in the bush, have a talk with him and Toni on the terrasse. There are no fences between the wild animals and you, there is calm and knowledge and friendliness. What a experience and adventure! We learned a lot and enjoyed it very much!

Dear Wiltrud, it was great fun having you at Sunset Lodge and Safaris and we are immensely pleased to read that you enjoyed your stay with us. It has to be said that we enjoyed those chats as much as what you did! Your statement " there is calm and knowledge and friendliness" might be included in our future marketing! It is what we set out to achieve and reading it is indeed pleasing. Thank you thank you thank you! From all of us here at Sunset, we wish you all the very best until we visit again!

If you want adventure or relaxation, get up with animals & birds or sleep in before a great breakfast this is the place to be. If you love the bush or want to love the bush, this is where zebras are invited for breakfast. If you want to stay somewhere, where giving you the best experience is priority this is the place to be. Sunset is NOT a 5 star lodge with fine dining and wines - it is low key, like being home with great hosts, staff and vibes. One of the best lodges that I personally have stayed at.

We spent 5 days at Sunset Lodge & Safari. Exceptional hospitality, a magical place surrounded by nature and animals. An always smiling staff, perfect service, delicious meals (thank you "Beauty"), impeccable cleanliness. Toni and Vincent always have the attention that makes you happy and the attention to detail. A perfect organization of activities and always great availability. Without forgetting the moments shared in front of a good fire with a glass of wine, humor and lots of interesting conversations despite our approximate english... Everything was perfect. Thank you Toni and Vincent, we miss you and as Vincent says, it's a good thing ;)

We had an absolutely wonderful weekend. The hosts were so welcoming, nothing was too much for them. We had 2 amazing breakfasts, a lovely light lunch with the food we requested. Amazing! Room was beautifully done, clean. Bathroom was absolutely amazing, my husband really enjoyed the outside shower. We definitely will return when that side! Thank you Toni and Vince for all you have done!!

We had a lovely time at the lodge. Rooms are spacious and clean. How great is it to wake up, open your curtains and see the warthog, Impala or zebra walking past your window. The hosts are so open and friendly, and really want to make your stay perfect as possible. The food is tasty and plenty, we didn't missed anything. Vincent en Toni thank you again for the great hospitality, we will remember your place for a long time.

It is at least a one hour drive to the park gate(at 5a.m.) and then a 20-30 minute wait for administration and registration. At the end of day, another one hour + back to the lodge.
