This is a great getaway for couples. Excellent service. Loved the pool right outside our room, perfect for moonlight dips... Denis was friendly and very accommodating. Hluhluwe game reserve is just 20 minutes away, which was a big plus for us. Will definitely be going back.

The Flamoyant Lodge is a lovely affordable accommodation in a great location. The Owners are passionate and went out of their way to ensure we were happy with our stay. I highly recommend having them cook you dinner. The rooms are clean and the lodge has a very nice walk with abundant insect and bird life to admire.

We expected something else. The owner is quite a nice chap but there has been obviously a (financing?) problem. The lodge is not finished and what is more, you have to look all the time at the "not finished building activities". Gives you not a good feeling. We had booked B&B but found room without even towels. Breakfast was not...

Worst holiday experience ever. The place is filthy with half built buildings, old linen and dusty floors. The pool was not cleaned and their breakfast is a joke. Insects all over the room we couldn't have a peaceful sleep.overall, the place is nowhere close to what it looks like on the pictures. Utterly disappointed in Flamboyant lodge. I wouldn't recommend...

We were booked for 6 nights and ended up staying for 1 night. When we asked Denis if he we could cut our stay to 2 nights he became violent. It was hard and late to secure rooms around Hluhluwe/St. Lucia. The adverts as shown on their website and your 5 star rating are exact opposites. The place is horrible!!!!...

My husband and I spent last weekend at Flamboyant Lodge and absolutely loved it. The owner (Denis) and his wife were magnificent to us - so helpful and the premises were amazingly clean. This is not your typical lodge, it has more of a safari feel to it and as soon as the idea behind it is understood - its...

We spent a night at Flamboyant Lodge and although the owner made an effort, it was dismal. Bad food, half built buildings, low quality bedding. Very disappointing. Nothing like the 5 star rating we saw on Tripadvisor.

we stayed at this lovely lodge because of its excellent price and proximity to the Hluhluwe Game Reserve. The Host and his staff were really friendly and went out of their way to be helpful. the rooms, while being basic were comfortable and very clean. The lodge is 20mins from the game reserve gate so is very well placed for...
