Really nice, clean and quiet accommodation. The staff was really friendly and we really enjoyed our stay there. We did the horse riding through the bush which was a really nice experience. Thank you :)

This rustic but elegant little place in a secluded area is wonderfully relaxing. This was the second time we have stayed here. Near False Bay. Enjoyed the staff and the jungly surroundings. Great deal for the price!

Not a super slick facility, but if you like homey and inexpensive, this is it. Way less cost than St. Lucia. Off the beaten path, but close enough to Hluhluwe-mFolozi Game Park, which is an OUTSTANDING place to visit. Cabins are old but clean, somewhat dark, but you aren't going to just stay in the cabin all day are you?...

At first we thought the GPS was directing us totally wrong way since the lodge location is pretty far out of the city directly at the game reserve fence. But we were not disappointed after we finally got there. Very nice little cottages spreaded over the compound. Due the fact that the generator was down showering before dinner had to...

Friendly and helpful staff, clean, warm welcome and rooms lovely decorated with flowers upon arrival. Dinner was good and affordable. The pool looks better in the dark :-); I would not want to swim here.

This booking was done on the basis of tripadvisor reviews and proved to be greatly disappointing. The location offered very little, with no walks of any consequence in the immediate vicinity and extremely limited activities on offer. The advertised boat trip was an hour's drive to get there.. The room itself did not have sufficient privacy from the outside and...

I loved it all. I loved the geckos sneaking into the rooms; the smoke from the fire-pit going straight up at night between the few dining tables; looking up at the straw roof before falling asleep; the open smiles on the faces of the beautifully friendly staff; the home-made brown bread - I'll never forget!; dancing around the fire to...
