Everything was excellent! Only 2 minor things... We stayed 4 days. The breakfast was basically the same every day. Just differentiate it a bit. It was excellent just some minor changes and the last day we only had bacon and eggs. No sausages. Finally, it was so good but everything is based on times. We did not have the opportunity...

The setting is magnificent - unspoiled bush, great sunsets, millions of stars. The property is a grand former bush lodge with huge rooms but the meals and service are very poor. Directions totally inadequate - we couldn't find it at all on our first evening. More than 9kms of dirt track is daunting, and the place is much further from...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Our eco lodge is situated in the Croc River Mountain Conservancy only 15 minutes from Nelspruit where a number of wildlife species still roam free on 35,000 hectares of pristine wilderness. The Conservancy boasts the oldest granite outcrops on the planet and forms part of the Barberton Green Belt, an area which may become a world heritage site in future.The lodge was designed keeping the natural beauty of the area in mind. The floors, ceilings and certain furniture pieces are made of invasive gum pine and black-wood. The raised ceilings and slate floors create a lovely cool atmosphere which does away with traditional air-conditioning which is not environmentally friendly. On the odd cold day a fire is made in one of the fireplaces. Only natural stone from the immediate surroundings was used in building the stunning retaining walls.Eco Eden offers six double deluxe rooms and the lodge can be booked on an exclusive basis for groups. Dinner is served in the dining room, on one of the wooden decks or around a camp fire in the boma.We are not fenced in; hence the kudu, bushbuck and duiker come right onto our doorstep to help themselves to any flowers on offer. In absence of a colourful flower garden some of the interior walls have been painted bright colours. Our staff is passionate about nature conservation and manage a number of eco projects like responsible waste, organic composting, water recycling, fire control, clearing of alien invasive plants, indigenous greening, tree tagging, bird identification, anti-poaching and introduction of species like the yellow billed ox-pecker to promote bio-diversity.Relax, enjoy and preserve it with us! ... more   less
