What an awesome venue to spend some quality time. Everything was superb. Saw the berg covered in snow too. We will definately come back for a longer stay. Thanx too all the staff who made our stay so enjoyable.

This place is extremely beautiful!!! I went with my boyfriend on our first vacation together and it was really good to start our memories together at this place, the staff is very friendly and the early mist lodge was lovely. The only downside was that there is no cell phone reception and the bathing water gets a little murky when it rains and the game drive could be alot more fun and include alot more animals. Other than that, I wish that we stayed longer at this exotic place.

An awesome bit of paradise on earth - quiet, excellent. Great service from Gareth and Samantha, very competent and friendly staff. Trip up Sani Pass is a must. Loved every minute of our holiday, and will most certainly be back again. Many thanks, Martin and Jacqui

Spent my honeymoon at Sani Valley Lodge. Had a blast.... what a fantastic place! The staff were friendly and very helpful when called upon and the lodge was excellent with beautiful views of the dam.

Wow - what a place!!! We will definately be coming back. It is priveate and peaceful, the tranquility is amazing. They must not commercialize it - its a hidden gem and must remain exactly that.
