This is a terrific place. Each visit seems better than the last, if it could be so. Tarryn and Willem De Villiers cannot do enough to make you feel welcome. The food was excellent (as usual) and this time I took away Tarryn's recipe for baked eggs with cheese. These served with bacon for breakfast are superb. As was everything...

The rooms were well serviced, with little treats delivered each night. However, with power outages every other night without notice or candles provided, this makes for an unsatisfactory stay. This power outages also affects the water supply, load shedding or power outages can be expected in South Africa but guests MUST be notified as a sign of professionalism. The other...

Tarryn and Willem were great hosts! Nothing was too much trouble! Sandile an attentive barman. The highlight of our trip was the amazing quad bike game viewing. Fun and exhilarating!

Home from a fabulous hunting safari based at Nduna Lodge. The accommodation is relaxed and comfortable with beautiful views stretching for miles.

Under new management, everything was a problem except the rooms. The place is soulless and uninviting, with no atmosphere to speak of. This is advertised as a game lodge but the animals are so skittish as its actually a hunting lodge. No animals were seen anywhere - not even in the distance. We asked for a lunch snack but were...

Visited in January 2013 for a strategic planning two-day getaway with 10 colleagues. The rooms are comfortable, well appointed, and most boast fantastic views.
