I stayed at Sefapane Lodge for business purposes from19 to 30 May 2016. Due to the fact that I had to work from 18:00 to 06:00 every day, the management made excellent arrangements to provide me with a "take away-dinner " and lunch pack. In order not to disturbed my sleep, housekeeping was done after 14:00 each day, which ensured...

Choose this hotel. A rural retreat just a stone's throw from the airport. Throughout our lives of global travel, we have grown accustomed to hotels charging crazy prices, but not at Sefapane. The Sefapane's prices were reasonable across the board -- from the room including a great breakfast to the bottled water and beer. We ate breakfast and dinner at...

The rondavels we stayed in are good. A little update of the bathroom is needed, but that's the only thing to mention. Room is spacious and well equipped.

Comfortable and spacious rooms perfect for nature lovers as they are individual huts and very outdoorsy. Good options for breakfast and a great ranger for the safaris. One of the best lodges I have stayed in Kruger and will hopefully visit again.
