Kurhula Wildlife Lodge
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 4 weeks ago

Everything was just perfect: the hosts were absolutely nice and helpful, food was delicious (huge and delicious breakfast!), the rooms were clean and comfortable... And the lodge is nicely situated on the edge of a river. More, a lot of great animals encounters! I strongly recommend this lodge.

We stayed for 2 night and had wonderful time, the staff was super friendly and always attentive to our every need. we had great safari tour inside the reserve. We did a self drive in Kruger and the staff packed us breakfast and lunch for the road.
Overall great experience and well worth the money.

One thing to be aware to is the road inside the reserve can be quite bumpy and takes about 30 minutes, if driving by yourselves a high car (SUV/4x4) might make you feel more comfortable.

After an exciting drive we ended in Paradise. We received a very warm welcome in a beautiful lodge and garden at the olifant's river. For every problem, if any, the owners came with a solution. The food was excellent. We had a great time and hopefully we are able to go back one day! Thanks a lot Sander & Kim. xxx

We can highly recommend the lodge: beautiful view, awesome hosts and delicious food! You are directly in the Bush which is really nice as you might see some animals in the garden!

Rooms are really nice and clean as well!

The 2 nights we spent in Kurhula Lodge were delicious. Sanders and Kim are very nice hosts, the view on the river is amazing with elephants and girafes walking and eating around. Meals were also very good and we loved spending time in the reserve and near the pool.
