A place of beauty, peace and tranquility underpinned with absolutely superb service by the lovely Rose who went above and beyond to make sure our stay was comfortable, special and memorable! Panoramic views, lovely nature walks, breakfast with a view, service with a smile from the lovely Monica...we'll definitely be back

Hello folks, We are at home in Sweden again. Thank you all so much for the excellent hospitality, again. This cool dude accompanied us for a walk last week. What a fine doggy he is! Thanks again, and best wishes for the rest of your summer.

We enjoyed our stay very much and had a good trip home. It was very comfortable for us that you made it possible to stay in our room till we went to the airport. Thank you so much.

We have just completed our 3rd visit here and booked for our 4th next year and just can't wait. The whole property has a relaxed and welcoming air but is run to the highest standards. We always have one of the self catering lodges which give us the flexibility to eat or BBQ at the lodge, go to the main house for an evening meal or go to one of the fantastic restaurants which are a short drive away. The views are to die for and you can be as active (with many activities available) or as relaxed as you wish. Don't be put off on your 1st visit by the drive through Sir Lowry's Pass Village as when you enter the huge estate which is gated and very secure you enter another lovely world as you climb the hill/mountain to the property. The added benefit for us this year is access to wi-fi in the self catering lodge for the first time. Rose is a gem and can help you with any query and she does it so willingly. We inadvertently set the panic alarm off and within 3 minutes the security guards were with us checking all was OK. We can't recommend Lalapanzi highly enough!

My girlfriend and I absolutely loved this place (specially her). Just take a look at the photos and those will tell you everything you need to know. But a summary is, the place was really clean, the manageress and chef were both really kind and welcoming. Up in the mountains and incredibly romantic.

Dear Marie- Hele’ne I must say our stay was the most wonderful experience. The Lalapanzi lodge has so much to offer their guests, especially the self catering lodges which we stayed in ( Phezula lodge ) and must say it was in a immaculate condition, well appointed with every comfort imaginable. The surroundings of the mountains, view of the Gordans Bay and especially the landscapes and atmosphere are unbelievable. The walking trail in the game reserve is a cherry on the top. Although our stay was so short it will be our most memorable stay ever. Thanks to the staff of Lalapanzi for their amazing service and espesially Helen for her wonderfull hospitallity. We will definitely be back. Indira
