The Lodge & Spa exceeded our expectations. We were treated like royalty, and I felt like royalty after I left. The garden is so big, it did not feel like we were anywhere near a city or even a town. Can not wait to go again. Thank you Thank you Thank you. Amazing place.

I think you should review your DSTV programme choices and include more kids tv programes. My kids were not happy about that. But overall we give it a 100% . The service was fantastic. Very friendly staff.

Not very impressed with the reservation of the room. We booked the Aloe room but when we got there, they reserved us in another room which was extremely small and in a construction site. The lady at the front desk said we must let her know if we like the room we were given, if not, she will upgrade us...

Based on all good reviews and a 5 star rating, I booked Leaves Lodge for a short family vacation over the long weekend. When I booked directly with the lodge they made a concerted effort to accommodate our family with 2 small kids. I was assured we would be given very clean & lovely accommodation in new lodges. We arrived...

I cancelled my booking but they refused to pay me back my money. I was charged 100% penalty. I went there myself to make that the booking was cancelled and it was confirmed and I asked them to keep the money and I will rebook to come sleep over so

After being out in the bush for weeks we treated ourselves to a spa day. Very affordable, great tea, think the only disappointing aspect was we expected to have our pedis in the Pedi chair, but were taken back to the room where we had our massage. It was quite uncomfortable sitting at that angle and having your feet done...

The only negative comment I have is that there is no mirror close to a plug to dry your hair. Furthermore the rooms are are very comfortable, neat and clean. Check-in and check-out was also painless and quick.

We had to stay here because my husband became ill while on safari and this hotel was close to the hospital. The owner Thys and his wife couldn't have been more helpful and understanding. They arranged transport from the hospital and food to be left in my room late at night. The room we stayed in was beautiful, large bed,...
