Loved the design of this hotel with African thatched huts set amidst lovely gardens. Our queen room was delightfully appointed with a rustic African theme. Because of the thatched roof you could hear the cycadas at night and birdsong early in the morning which was lovely. We ate in the hotels restaurant on both evenings and the food was very...

The road to reach it is in the middle of nowhere but once you get there it looks like heaven. Little african cottages surrounded by gardens and orange trees. Very friendly staff and amazing service. Definitely recommended.

Good room, nice breakfast and a calm place. The room was clean, the bed was big and actually we gained an upgrade for the Sunset hut, thank you Kayla. We loved the puppies that was around. The wifi signal on the hut was bad, but we used to go to the pool area that was better. We recommend!

Had a really great two-night stay at Chrislin in their beautiful and unique lodge cottages modelled on local 'mud-hut' design. The interiors were a pleasant surprise to us - huge, and tastefully decorated and spotless. Set in peaceful and pretty gardens with a small swimming pool this was a perfect place to unwind after our long haul flight to RSA....

We stayed at Chrislin African Lodge for two nights. The room is huge with a king size bed, a big sitting area and a large bathroom. It had everything we needed to be comfortable. Location is very secluded and it was wonderful to wake up to the sounds of roosters and birds calling. Breakfast and dinner were delicious. The staff...
