We have been here one night and it was very pleasant. We felt very welcome. The food that Luke and Anita prepared was excellent. They gave us a lot of information of things that you can see or do iin that area. So we went to Jessica the hippo, very nice. Luke and Anita thank you for the nice stay,

Welcomed personally by the owners and made to feel at home right from the moment of arrival. A person gets the feel that you are part of the Lodge and surrounding property. Very clean & comfortable accommodation with stunning views of the river. Food & beverages to die for and more than enough o fill any hungry traveler.

Our restaurant offers scrumptious light lunches and dinners using only the freshest of ingredients. Dinners are by booking only. Our rustic outdoor "Hippo Boma" is a great place to enjoy dinner by candle light under the stars. The campfire is where it all happens, braais, spits and potjies are catered for. Our main viewing deck overlooking the Great Letaba river is a favourite amongst our guests and great sightings of hippo, crocodile, vervet monkey and a wide variety of birds can be seen. Listen to the call of the fisheagle whilst a full farmhouse breakfast is served on the deck daily. Special dinners on the deck can be booked. Our swimming pool area set amongst plush well manicured gardens surrounded by bushveld and large trees is exclusive to our guests ensuring total privacy. Comfortable well appointed and tastefully decorated chalets are offered set in plush well manicured gardens with bushveld surrounds and include three river units set under large jackalberry trees overlooking the Great Letaba River and two poolside units set under large Mopani trees.
