We had the most enjoyable stay with Shadrak and his team. They couldn't do enough for us during our stay and were always on hand with suggestions and attending to to our comfort and enjoyment. The meals prepared by Beverley, the chef, were outstanding and bearing in mind that we are Pescatarians, I have never tasted such delightful and enjoyable variety of food to suit our requirements. Service at the bar was outstanding and quick, Blessed, was very friendly and efficient. The rooms were very spacious and comfortable with some of the best views we have seen on our many travels. The room cleaning was very quick and efficient. Game drives were very enjoyable and could be arranged at very short notice. As you can tell we had the most wonderful time and would like to thank Shadrak and his team for making our stay so special. We WILL be returning ASAP

Phumelelo Lodge is an amazing hotel, the rooms were out of this world with beautiful views, and the main lodge was stunning. All of the staff were wonderful and couldn't do enough to make our stay comfortable, they went above and beyond with everything, this is especially true with Francois, Nadia, and Martinette. I highly recommend Phumelelo Lodge to everyone, whether it is for a weekend or for a week, you won't regret your decision. I will definitely be back to stay.
