The 3 nights we spent at Inzolo were fantastic - we could not recommend it highly enough. There is only 4 rooms which makes it very personal and the staff, especially Johannes, are world-class. They did go well beyond to make our stay fabulous. The food we were served was amazing - just a bit too much at times ;) The game drives were informative and we saw lots of wildlife. We could go back to Inzolo any time. A big shout out to Jay and Johannes and team for all they have done and for taking such good care of us!

The main focus was to see the big fives which had nearly been fullfilled. The atmosphere was really good we enjoyed the time beeing at the Inzolo Game Lodge.
The ranger acted very professional so that we could see the lions and other animals.

If you are looking for total tranquility, exciting game drives, exceptionally good food, friendly knowledgeable staff and feeling like you have your very own lodge then this if for you. The moment you arrive you are treated to 5 star luxury, from the welcome drinks every time the jeep pulls up, to the super equipped rooms with tranquil balcony to sit on. The staff are what make this place special as they are slick, friendly, charming and fun to be around. I cannot wait to revisit.

It is actually extremely difficult to write a review on Inzolo. There are just so many aspects of the experience which make it worth every penny spent. The lodge is beautifully decorated and well stocked with fine wine and the food is to die for. The staff are all very welcoming and made a real effort to get to know each of us personally. There are 4 rooms which are all wonderfully furnished and secluded from one another which gives you privacy and an atmosphere of being truly immersed in the bush.

The game viewing is equally as great as the lodge and our Ranger Regard was the absolute best! He has a great sense of humor and kept us thoroughly entertained by his stories as we drove in search of the game.

All in all the trip was definitely worth it and I would recommend it to anyone else who would have a chance to go and enjoy this wonderful experience. Jay, you and the team were amazing!

Inzolo Game Lodge was an extraordinary experience! Although it is no real family lodge, we booked for our two sons (15, 16 y), my husband and me. We really enjoyed it very much, luckily we were the only guests and had the luxury of using pool and lodge exclusively. We never trust reviews or reputations, especially when they are too enthusiastic, but this was worth every cent and cannot be described. Justin's game drives were excellent and he tried hard to find all the animals and to fulfil our wishes. It was definitely not his fault that the giraffes were hiding - but that makes nature exciting! We can recommend Inzolo warmly in any respect. We had a perfect stay concerning food, game drives, accommodation and friendliness of the whole staff.

Stayed here for 3 nights. A fabulous experience and perfect hospitality of all the staff, they couldn't do enough to make our stay wonderful. Five star lodge with a very large bedroom and terrace overlooking amazing scenery with superb views and bathroom with every facility. The breakfast, lunch and diner were to die for top marks to the Chef. Man alive, Jason our Ranger/Manager knew everything to know about animals, he knew where to take us on our six game drives and was such a lovely man, he deserves an Oscar. This a very private and exclusive game reserve and one to return to without exception.

It is my 50th birthday later this year. As my birthday gift I chose to go to this extraordinary Lodge with my husband, 2 daughters and the special men in their life. Words fail to express what an amazing time it was. The attention to detail goes above and beyond expectation. The food is impeccably presented and delicious. The staff are the epitome of service excellence and from the first moment we arrived made us all feel so special. I was presented with a beautiful birthday cake on the second night and the staff sang to me. They have the most beautiful voices too! The surroundings and the actual Lodge are spectacular and there was nothing nicer than sitting next to a great fire. Each night, time, love and care was taken in leaving a little surprise on our bed. Its the little touches thant create the biggest impact. Our Ranger was Regard, he was brilliant! His knowledge and fantastic sense of humour made the Game drives that much more enjoyable. He is a true asset to the profession and to the company.
This stay and the memories made will stay in my heart forever. Thank you for the best time! I pray to be back some time again.

Inzolo lodge was a fantastic expierience for our family. The lodge itself is beautiful with great views in every direction. The effort put in by the staff is what makes it truly memorable - we felt like royalty. The game drives were terrific as the ranger really knew his stuff, meaning that every day we got to see something exciting.
Can not recommend Inzolo enough.

Amazing and wonderful place
Friendly stuff, fantastic food, great view and very lovely and nice private accommodations, small pool
And the best - every day two game drives with the fantastic Ryno. He explains a lot and is always on the mission to find the animals. Every time a big adventure, we saw Cheetah hunting, 4/5 Big five. Never forget this time there!

From the moment you arrive you are transformed into tranquility with the panoramic views over the valley. Where we were greeted with a wonderful warm welcome from the friendly staff. Then offered a hotel towel and surprise drink, plus every time we got back from our game drives.

It is one of the most magical settings and our private thatch hut was divine with private balcony. Gorgeous bathroom and shower with a view.

The main area is stunning and very chic. We loved having a drink in front of one of the many crackling fires or relaxing on the sundrenched deck in the morning and afternoon.

The food was delicious and alcohol selection superb. Our every need was catered for and staff paid attention to detail.

David our safari driver was very knowledgeable and kept our teenagers entertained. There was lots of animals and many birds. We also enjoyed our drinks and nibbles whilst out on the drive.

Definitely a memorable experience, outstanding food, game drives and service. Plus it was very close to port elizabeth. Can't wait to return
