Sam and Dave are invested in making certain guests have a pleasant stay. They offer good advice about touring Kruger Park and self guided as well as professionally guided drives. Ask how the experience was at next morning breakfast; genuinely interested. Also were happy to lend field glasses to help spot birds and distant game. Breakfast was superb and made for great start to day.

Would stay here again without hesitation

Sunbird lodge is set out in a large plot with loads of space and facilities. Rooms are large, comfortable, clean and well equipped. The owners are really friendly and can't do enough for you although they don't overdo it. Breakfast is excellent, with a wide choice including a well cooked 'full english' option. Thoroughly recommended.

Great place to stop over on the way to or from the Kruger National Park. Rooms are nice and big beds are comfortable. Has a fridge too and tea and coffee. A big garden well maintained and a swimming pool, quite large. You could easily spend a couple of days here while touring the area.
Staff is very helpful and accessible booking was no problem and is reasonably priced.
Did not eat there as left early the next morning but all looks organized.
No complaints will stay there again if am in the area.

Room Tip: Our room looked on to the garden away from the pool so quiet.

Six of us stayed last month, and were well treated. Rooms comfortable and excellent freshly cooked breakfast. Sam and Dave even kindly provided freezer space for our safari food. Great place to stay before heading into Kruger.

Stopped for one night at Sam and Daves lodge on our way into Kruger Park. There were 6 of us and each one of us throughly enjoyed the lodge. Sam and Dave were extremely friendly and very accommodating. We had frozen foods and cold foods which needed a refrigerator/ freezer as we were going into upper Kruger for 6 days. Not a problem at all was their response. Rooms were large, clean and plenty of room for all the suitcases and dryed foods we were carrying. Plenty of extra blankets as our evening was chilly. Large swimming pool, braai area, wonderful garden area. Outside bar for drinks after dinner. Breakfast was excellent. Hot sausages, eggs, bacon, mushrooms, fresh fruit, cereal whatever one wanted. Best scrambled eggs I have had in a very long time. Have stayed in other B&B's in Phalaborwa. Highly recommend this one.
