The lodge is a small heaven. The place is peaceful it feels as if you are the only guests. We had the pool to ourselves in the morning, afternoon and in the evening. The highlight of the stay has to be the picnic basket that was prepared for us and we enjoyed the picnic by the lake.

Our stay at Hartebeespoort dam was exceptional. We received a lovely clean room. We had a beautiful view over the dam from the room's balcony. We relaxed and enjoyed everything that was offered to us. Services was great. We enjoyed the breakfast served every morning. Thanks to Elanore and her friendly team! 😁😁💐

We had a lot of fun me & Mpho. The place is definitely for lovers you get to bond and revive your love.. Eleanor is the best hostess we loved the picnic basket we had our picnic next to the pool overlooked the dam while it was sun set.

Had an amazing stay. Eleanor is by far the best hostess in Kosmos. Warm smile, interest in the well-being of the clients, well prepared food and good insight about the life and what makes couples enjoy life's moments.
