The lodge offers everything a 4 star lodge needs: the furniture of the rooms/huts is nice, there is a nice foyer with couches, flat screens in the rooms, free Wi-Fi, a pool, massage parlor, the staff seems to be nice and friendly etc. However the lodge is not in a good shape any more which led to the overall bad...

Shumba Valley Lodge is very conveniently situated to Lanseria Arport as well as a number of nearby day excursions, namely the Lion Park & the Cradle of Humankind. The accomodation at Shumba Lodge is clean & respectable - but dont expect any lavish attention or special favours. We arrived at 3pm in the afternoon, only to find that the rooms...

Stayed here for 1 week end of October whilst visiting the area. Room simple but everything we needed. Good shower. Tv quite poor choices and no wifi in the room. Breakfast a good selection each day, although most of the preserves on the table were out of date . Staff were lovely and helpful. Would recommend staying here.

I think the reason why there are so many rather negative reviews for this place is that people expect more then they pay for! Its a pretty cheap place, so you're not going to get 5 star luxury! I stayed here for 5 nights and everything was to my expectation, great food, comfortable and clean rooms and their staff are...
