Reviewed 3 weeks ago

From check-in, till check-out, seamless friendly an most professional. The room, well decorated and a quite air conditioner, real bliss. Delightful friendly staff/waiter at supper, as well as breakfast, and the fillet was done to perfection. Most definitely one of our most favorite overnight places!!!

The owners and staff are exceptionally attentive and very helpful. The rooms are spacious, very comfortable and clean. Lodge decor is lovely. All-in-all, a highly recommended Pongola destination. A warm thank you to the Kwa Lala team for making our stopover an easy one!

We had been driving since 5:00 am and still had 300 kms to go when we were hit by a storm in the darkness, with very limited visibility and lots of trucks, so we were keen to stop and rest. Being tourists, we were a bit wary of our surroundings, and hesitant when we saw the gates were closed. Just...

I have always travelled to Pongola for business and always stayed at the Pongola Country Lodge, as I thought it was the best place by far. I am always sceptical of places that I find on the internet because sometimes the pictures can be misleading, but I have to say after staying at KWALALA, I am not disappointed. They have...

We booked 2 inter leading rooms which was great. Rooms are clean and can not fault them with anything. My only complaint is the staff. There was obviously no management available during our stay. Staff seemed unsure and not well trained. The were very friendly but lacking in giving us direction. For dinner no suggestions where to go - eventually...
