The room was very affordable with great views and close to Kruger National Park & The Senic Route. The property was great but the lodge owners made the stay extra special. They even invted the guests to their local country club to watch the hippos exit the lake in the evening. Highly recommended for anyone not opting to stay in...

The owner Joe & Margrit gave us a very warm welcome. The rooms are big, very clean and very well equipped. Breakfast was great. Coffee/cake is available for free during the afternoon. A well equipped self-service bar doesn't leave any wishes unfulfilled. We felt very comfortable there during our stay and can definitely recommend it. The owner are Swiss and...

Friendly hosted by Margrit & Joe, a swiss couple, who will help you with any help/information needed. Breakfast is great and freshly baked cake & coffee/tea available in the afternoon.

We (7 guests) recently stayed with Abangane for 3 nights, and the response from everyone was that it was an excellent experience. Friendly and helpful owners, a perfect setting, good service and attention to detail where it matters. Next time we will stay an extra day and use this to relax around the pool. Thanks again from all of us...

A few small incidents spoiled our stay, but it would not be honest to the new owners to give Abangane a negative review. It is a lovely place, and with a few small improvements will surely be a jewel in the east

Dear Natasha Thank you very much for taking the time to write a review on this and another platform. We are very sorry that you perceived us as unfriendly and awkward.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The very prestigious Abangane Guest Lodge is located on a 22 hectare portion of the original “Farm de Rust” situated on the Sabie Road in Hazyview. Since opening, Abangane Guest Lodge continues to maintain its exclusive 4 star environment. The Lodge is highly regarded for its peaceful, tranquil surroundings and its ability to provide the highest quality of service. Guests marvel at the sheer expanse of the luscious surrounding bushveld, picturesque gardens, panoramic views across the valley, the majestic mountains in the distance and the promise of a glorious sunset. Abangane is an exceptional and exclusive lodge. At sunrise and sunset Zebras, Impalas, Giraffes and many more can be seen grazing on the neighboring private game farm. The sparkling blue infinity pool with its breathtaking view over the valley adds to the serene ambiance. Nighttime is magical with lanterns that invite you for a walk through the lush gardens while you take in the sounds of the evening. Most evenings you will be blessed with the haunting cry of the Fish Eagle heard high above the hilltops. Abangane Guest Lodge is the ideal gateway to the famous Kruger National Park. Three access gates are located nearby, the closest being the Phabeni Gate reachable within a leisurely 15 minute drive. The Blyde River Canyon with the famous God’s Window and other spectacular attractions are easily accessible from Abangane Lodge. All just a day trip away. Some of the best restaurants in the area are a short drive from the Lodge as well as a comprehensive, well equipped shopping centre a mere 2 km away. Discerning travelers will find quick access to most amenities and resources they may require. A wholesome continental or full English breakfast can be enjoyed in the Lodge dining room or on the open veranda. The abundant birdlife welcomes in the day as you plan your activities over freshly brewed coffee or tea. After a day of adventure and wonderment you are welcome to relax and enjoy a sundowner poolside, or relax under the gazebo in our tranquil surroundings. Should you not feel like dining out a delicious candlelight dinner could be prepared for you. This would be by prior arrangement. ... more   less
