While the staff were lovely and did their best was very disappointed, the place was very run down and definitely was not worth the money, dinner was R200 and for that price was expecting a lot more, it's very sad as we stayed there 4 years ago and thoroughly enjoyed it but would not go back.☹️

I really enjoyed the stay, hospitality. The food was great. Environment super fabulous. Looking forward to another stay I guess next time I have to bring more people. The place is excellent for a peace of mind, soul searching and connecting to your inner being

A great place to stay. Pity the weather was not too good. Very friendly hosts and excellent food, made a special effort to accomodate a vegetarian meal. WIll definetly visit again, but would be good to have airconditioning. Good value for money and would recommend a visit. Thanks to Jane, Paul and Pete.

What can I say!! My daughter and I stayed here for 4 nights from 28th September until 2nd October 2009. I can honestly say that we were treated to one of the most enjoyable experiences I have ever had. We were greeted by Jane on our arrival almost before we had got out of our car, Jane walked with us to our accomodation and made sure that we were happy before leaving us to settle in. Our lodge was wonderful, spacious and spotlessly clean with very comfortable beds and nice fluffy towels. There was a folder in the lodge and various books and guides which gave us a lot of information about the area we were staying in. We were encouraged to use the guides and maps whenever we were going out which was most helpful to us. The food was really good, all home cooked and plentiful, there was everything you could want for breakfast and it gave us a really good start to the day.The puddings were divine the most memorable being a heavenly chocolate mousse and something called "vinegar pudding" which was out of this world!! The dining room was spacious and well laid out and again spotless. There was a lounge area availiable for guest use which also housed a wealth of books and yet more guides to the area. Pete manned the bar and was a really good host, it was nice to be able to add drinks onto the final bill and the prices were good. We went on a game drive with Pete which was very good, he told us a lot about the park in general and his overall knowledge about the game was excellent, we stopped at one of the picnic spots where an assortment of drinks and some fantastic muffins appeared as if by magic!! The walks around the lodge were great and it was nice to be able to wander freely if you wanted to.The pool area was very nice and had the weather been better we would have used it regularly!! I have one small comment to make, the weather was wet during our visit and there was nowhere in the lodge to hang wet coats, a very minor thing but a couple of hooks would have been good. Overall this was a fantastic place to stay and I would recommend it anyone. A big thank you to the Harvey family for making us so welcome at their home!!

War zum fünften mal hier und das hat sicher seine guten Gründe. Und hoffe, dass ich im November09 wieder das Glück habe hier zu übernachten.

Very friendly owners. Were very helpfull and the safari we had in hluhluwe park with Pete was great! The rondavels we slept in were great and it was all very clean. In the evening we were sitting on our porch and in the dark the nyala's came to eat some fruit that fell down from a tree, it was 10 meters from our porch. It was fantastic. Breakfast and dinner was very good.
