It is a lovely place for a bush getaway away from civilization. Make sure you stock up on food and anything else you might need before checking in - The road to the Lodge is terrible and we almost turned around half way to the lodge.

We stayed for one night at Masorini Lodge. Accommodation was clean and neat. Margaret was there to welcome us on arrival. No animals to speak of while we were except their lovely dogs. Quick entrance into Kruger.

It's in the middle of nowhere so you can see some animals around like wild pigs and water bucks. The chalet was nice and we had a kitchenette. Difficult to find and to get there. You have to drive for 5 km on an unpaved road. No indications.

We prefer to get into Kruger early as we camp and so try to set up before it gets too hot. Masorini is close enough to get into Phalaborwa for supper if you are not self catering, but far enough from town to be in the bush. If you are self catering there are braai facilities. The cottages are welcoming...

Quite often in the the area , had to try something different and to my surprise Masorini offers a peaceful overnight stay. Booking was quick and simple, rooms were clean and comfortable, bathroom neat and tidy , best of all no TV , nature at its best . Affordable accommodation including breakfast, what a pleasure will be back soon

This place is absolutely wonderful. It's far enough out of town that you feel you are really in the bush. The accommodations are quite comfortable. (I was not expecting such a nice place for the little that it cost...) If you want to cook, there's enough kitchen stuff to make that easy. If not, the restaurants in town are really...

Very hospitable family really made our (too short) stay terrific. The rooms were charming---we had beds for our family of 4, plus a bathroom. Kitchen was outside on covered patio, which included small fridge, microwave, sink, bar-height table, and larger eating table. Very cool set-up. Kids and adults were enamored with this place. From our group of 16 family members,...

After reading all the reviews I was completely convinced that this is the place to overnight on our trip to the Kruger - The "friendly" Margaret left us standing with a "fill in the book - I'll be back." On her return she scrutinised the guest registration book to see if all were filled in correctly without saying a word...

Dear Mr & Mrs Louw, I want to offer my sincere apologies if you found me to be unwelcoming on arrival. While it's no excuse and should have been explained, some new guests had arrived moments before you, so I was in the process of showing them to their chalets, and this is why I asked you to fill in...

If you want that 'Kruger' feel then this is the place with a personal touch. Sean & Margaret are fabulous hosts. The best of all is that it's so reasonably priced. This little lodge has so much to offer we just loved the wild life right on our doorstep.
