I really loved this lodge. Very clean and amazing staff. I highly recommend the Ostrich filet for dinner :-) I can only hope I end up on another Kruger trip soon so I can stay Sefapane. I think this is a family run place. The staff seem happy and very helpful. The owner truly is involved in running the place...

I'm currently staying over at Sefapane lodge on a work trip for the weekend and truly enjoyed my stay so far. I arrived last night from Giyani where the accommodation was really bad at the Oasis lodge, so my level of optimism was a bit shattered. But what a lovely surprise to come here and receive warm welcome. The best...

The lodge is close to Kruger National Park and Spar. I really had a fantastic time in Sefapane Lodge with my family. The environment was so relaxing and I will definitely come back. Keep the good work up guys.

Beautiful, modern, well equipped and spacious guest houses! We stayed in Ratel, which was within view of the family pool. (Although the first day the noise from the main road was slightly distracting). Plenty of space...the guest lodges really do have 8 proper beds. Service before we arrived and when checking in was fantastic. Our only complaint is about the...

The area where the lodge is situation is great, always cool, the water streams next to the houses make the place look like you are in heaven. No noise, you just enjoy nature of, trees, birds and the fishes.

We have been upgraded to a large and beautiful guesthouse for no extra charge. Enjoyed every minute. The house had everything one can think of, good bedding, a/c, large well fitted kitchen, large terrace facing a pond with lots of bird life.Very friendly staff.

So happy we chose Sefapane for our first trip to South Africa. The staff could not have been nicer and the locations more stunning. At the main lodge the whole restaurant complex was lovely as were the pools with the abundant bird life. The interior of the rondavels could do with a little modernisation here and there, but everything is...

I stayed for two nights in March for work. I stayed in the Mopani lodge and loved it. The property was clean, the service was attentive, and the pricing was reasonable. The restaurant offered good food and the service was very prompt and polite. Overall I would come back and enjoy a longer stay next time.

Upon arrival reception confused us (two couples from the UK) with a Dutch family of five. They tried to convince us that the double lodge they had set for us was fantastic and even gave us the activity itinerary for this family showing a longer stay than we had booked. It took well over half an hour to unravel the...
