Had a great experience which felt as if one is surrounded by the vast African outdoors while actually still in Johannesburg! The awesome swimming pool and braai facilities are outstanding and friendly staff which fullfill your every need! This is definately a place I would come visit again and again and truly recommend to anyone seeking tranquility!

We had a wonderful time. We did miss the fireplace though, pity. The property does need some tlc, which it looked like was in progress. The Lodge has great potential. Thank you to the chef and team, wow, the food was amazing. We will be back for more of your fantastic dishes, mmm.

I enjoyed the privacy and the service was good. The employees were very helpful and willing to help anytime of the day and night. The food was well prepared and on time. I would recommend the bar fridges , small braai stands for tents accommodation.
