          This was the first lodge on our tour and with hindsight one of the most beautiful. Nice spacious rooms and bath rooms. Good lunch box for the safari, Good evening dinners. Wifi only works at reception but of good quality.

          This lodge, runned by Nicole and her husband, is beautiful situated in Hoedspruit. When driving there, you'll probably see a few girafs and zebra's. The service is good, Nicole is very flexibel. The food is nice, and the vibe is relaxing.

          Nice clean rooms. The food was great too! Owners were very friendly and informative. Nicole took us for a nice bush walk. Got to see some zebras and other wildlife from our room. Would definitely recommend this place.
