At the lodge we were very happily welcomed by Collin, our great host. The food was amazing, the accommodation was clean and beautiful and the setting was jawdropping. At night the cute bushbabies came out and we also saw 2 kudus (!) and zebras at the lodge. How wonderful was our stay here! We were also lucky the other guests...

Needles lodge is an excellent choice for experiencing the Kruger area. The rooms are comfortable and basic, and the Wi-Fi is not the best, but then again, we are in the bush :) They've got a lovely boma area where one can star gaze while cozying up by the fire.

Thank you to Denis Gail and Colin for warmly welcoming our CANADIAN group back (as well as a few newcomers) and providing us with many great new memories of the Panorama route as well as game safaris -we saw the big 5! Since our last trip 2 years ago, it felt like coming home. Au revoir.

What an amazing, caring business! The manager helped us get a tow service for our broken-down vehicle after we'd checked out of the lodge AND allowed us to hang out on the patio to admire the zebras while we awaited our ride to take us back (even though we were no longer paying guests). Thank you so very much for...
