Stayed here recently as part of a tour on the Sholongolo Express - Separate review. Service compared to the train and also similar lodge experience in Kenya requires improvement. No assistance with baggage (always happens in my experience in ZA and Kenya). There are 150 cabin units, however there was always only one bar staff on duty. Bar food is extremely slow (45 minutes for a Caesar salad - fortunately not for me) and I overheard the person asking for olive oil 3 times before it was produced. Unless you eat early at night the light is so dim you can't see what you are eating, and the lighting in the cabins is so dim that you can't read. A co traveller complained and the solution by the lodge was to remove the lampshades. Unable to buy wine by the glass, took the remains of the 1/2 bottle that had been purchased back to the room. The following day when returning to the "serviced room" the glass and bottle were still there. Cabin faced directly west so no shade whatsoever in the afternoon in the area for seating. No chair in the cabin. Had to unplug one of the lights in order to make a cup of tea. Couldn't wait to get back to train.
