Our stay at Royal Kruger Lodge recently was exactly what we were hoping for and more. The Staff were friendly and helpful at all times.

Beautiful building with potential but the experience falls far short. The food was terrible. I haven’t eaten food of that standard since school camp in the 1960s. Gravy, sauces, soups and custard appeared to be made out of packets and vegetables appeared to be from packets of frozen mixed vegetables or tins. Our packed lunch was, to our standard, inedible...

What a total disappointment. I was expecting much more after reading rave reviews. Plastic rose petals on the bed, supermarket toiletries, cheap and nasty artwork, cutlery, placemats, bed linen and furniture. The outside shower could have been s treat but feel well short with cheap fittings and rubber mats. The dinners were great if you had a tiny appetite. The...
