Iketla Lodge is very, very beautiful. The location and the views are one of the best during our long trip in South Africa. We loved the views of the outdoor shower ( there is also an indoor shower but we did not use ours ). Very nicely appointed rooms. Gardens very well kept, very good lounge with again: amazing views! If you would like to have lunch when you arrive, please don't forget to let this know in advance, as we forgot this so there was no food available when we arrived between one and two, with the first restaurant about half an hour away. Food at breakfast and dinner at the lodge is good. We have enjoyed our stay very much. The two lovely living doll ladies who will host you are so fiercely fabulously friendly, it is an experience in itself. Highly recommended!
