Verified reviewvery good

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Marula Lodge. The pool and gardens were lovely. Marion our host was very welcoming and the breakfast was very good. We hope to go back to South Africa in the future and if so would revisit both the area and Marula Lodge again.

Hallo Ihr zwei, wir möchten uns herzlich für den tollen Aufenthalt in Eurem Haus bedanken. Wir haben wirklich gut geschlafen und das Ambiente eures Hauses in vollen Zügen genossen. Auch der Besuch im Restaurant "nebenan" war ein Erlebnis, nicht zuletzt wegen Filips Empfehlungen zur Karte. Wir wünschten, wir hätten etwas mehr Zeit mit euch verbringen können. Danke für die herzliche Aufnahme. Und besonderen Dank für den Tip, die Fähre zu benutzen - es war ein Erlebnis und wir hatten viel Spaß. Gerne kommen wir wieder, dann etwas länger.
