Wonderful 4 days in the African bush. Amazing views of the drakensburg. Stayed at Three Trees for my mothers 70th birthday. Three families, with plenty of activities for parents and kids alike. From the fantastic mountain bike ride with Brent to the horse riding with Cheryl and the guided game walk with Simon. True family atmosphere with Cheryl and Simon's children joining for many of the activities. Melanie was also very helpful in organising other activities such as the canopy adventure in the champagne valley. Thank you all for such a wonderful stay.

Stayed: April 2017, travelled with family

And we can understand why.
Everyone here is committed and caring. We were warmly welcomed and shown to our cabin. It looked much more simple than it was. There was everything we needed, and the huge bed had wonderful linens and soft pillows and the towels were big and fluffy.
The toiletries are eco friendly, the whole place shows consideration for the environment as well as for the guests. Our deck had a stunning view, as as for the stars at night . . .
The food was plentiful and beautifully presented. Conversation flows as does the wine if you so desire.
The highlight of our trip was the tour to Spionkop with Simon. After breakfast we had an excellent introduction to the geography of the area which helped us to understand the unfolding of the battle. When the scene was set we drove off to the battle site, where once again we had a talk with more information about the setup. Then we walked round the site, shuddering at the mass graves, surrounded by amazing scenery. We sat under a tree while Simon gave the third part of his talk; one could not help but be very moved. I have to confess that tears were trickling down my face by the time he had finished. Everyone we talked to, whether they were taken by Ron or Simon spoke extremely highly of their tour.
On fine evenings drinks and nibbles as served at a viewpoint. The sight of the sun setting over the Drakensburg is etched in my memory. The G&Ts went down well too!
Many activités are available, but we were not able to take advantage of them, despite our three-night stay, as my husband has some physical limitations. We did have a lovely walk, though some of it was very rocky, and we saw zebras close to and giraffes in the distance.
The setting is wonderful; I would advise anyone elderly who is thinking of going there to check if they can manage. My husband was able to, but there were bits of the path that he found tricky. There is a deck above the swimming pool which is easy to access with a wide view over the Reserve towards Spionkop itself. We spent an afternoon there in the shade on wonderfully comfortable seats. Don't forget your binoculars, though ! Simon did lend me a superior pair., which made the afternoon even better.
I can't thank them enough for giving us such a wonderful time

Room Tip: I think all the rooms have supreme views, but if walking is a problem try to book the family room.

Wonderful rooms, views, food, service and company. Knowledgable guides, for animal, flora and fauna walks. Interesting talks and walks around the Spionkop battlefield. And a very relaxing place to sit and watch birds and wildlife

Room Tip: All rooms seemed to have great views

Stayed here for 2 nights recently nice rooms not the biggest we have stayed in but more than adequate for the amount of time you actually spend in it.
We did the battlefield trip arranged by the lodge which was excellent the guide I think was called Ron and he was very knowledgeable and you actually felt like you were there so interesting.
On a evening you have drinks above the lodge and watch the sunset which was amazing.
The food was ok but nothing special.

Stayed: February 2017
