We had a fabulous time staying at the river lodge at Maliba for a week over New Year. The people are friendly and willing to help, the location is idyllic and quiet and overall we had a great experience. You can go on walks, pony rides, hikes, swim in the rock pool or just relax. We also went on the...

The Lodge beautifully located, the Chalets a good size. The plumbing didnt work too great, either had not hot water upstairs or only hot water downstairs! The food bill was horrendous! overpriced and not all that appetizing or filling.

Our original booking was made for July, but due to the new regulations regarding unabridged birth certificates and travelling with kids, we couldn't get my eldest son's birth certificate in time, so we decided to go alone. The location, food, rooms, service -...

The lodge is really awesome, true 5-star accomodation. But the service needs some training and upgrading. In a 5-star lodge you do not want to wait 15 minutes until somebody asks for your breakfast orders. Then it takes another 20 minutes to get it to the table. Same for lunch. There are by far too many service staff not knowing...

A bit of a trek to get there for just one night, but well worth it when you arrive. The rooms are amazing, everything about them oozes quality and we had one of the best nights sleep of the holiday. The food was excellent, and the staff put on some traditional singing for the guests, which was lovely. Just wish...

Maliba-Lodge was truly outstanding! Our room was beautiful, the lodge was spectacular and the food was superb. The staff was very friendly and helpful, and Theo is an excellent general manager. He even filled our car with petrol because we were afraid we might run out on the way back to the airport. Thank you for a wonderful stay!!
