About
Description
Gecko Lodge is situated 3 Km from Hazyview in Mpumalanga, South Africa, on a 35ha Farm with Sabie River Frontage. It is the ideal base from which to explore the Kruger National Park (12km from Phabeni ...More Gate) and the Lowveld Panorama Route including Blyde River Canyon (89km), God's Window (50km) and Pilgrim's Rest (54km) This owner managed lodge has its emphasis on tranquillity, comfort, quality service and good food. Gecko Lodge offers the guest an escape from modern urban living. We, Anja (German) and Gideon Barnard (South African) the owners at Gecko Lodge, offer personal attention and service with a smile in short, "Value for money" Less
