Best place to relax. Was my best holiday ever.
Staff is great and very friendly! Spa was excellent!
Never felt so welcome and treated in my life!!
Definitely the place to be and will recommend it to everybody!
The owner is a great peoples person and if it wasn"t for him we would not have had
the priviledge to spend time and interact with travellers from round the world who stayed
at the Grand Kruger Lodge.
Never have i come across any holiday destination with the staff that are so dedicated and
friendly!!
Thank you all from the bottom of our hearts for making our stay there the most wonderfull
time!!!!!

Thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Grand Kruger Lodge. Rooms were very comfortable and clean. Food was excellent. The service was exceptional. I loved the fact that I could sit outside with my morning coffee and watch the animals wandering right past my room. A most enjoyable bush experience.

Every minute at the Grand Kruger Lodge was just wonderful. The staff were attentive without being too in your face and were very helpful, even telling how to avoid a possible 3 hours delay on the journey back to Johannesburg, which also avoided the most expensive toll on the N4. We were staying elsewhere in Marloth Park for the week before our stay at the Grand Kruger Lodge, but reception at the Grand Kruger Lodge went out of their way to help organise trips to the Kruger National Park for us, even though we weren't currently staying with them.

We had a bush chalet, and it was nice to be a bit separated from the lodge, although the lodge itself was not noisy, as the whole of Marloth Park is a quiet zone. We had monkeys scrambling over the thatched roof one day, and a pair of Zebra came up the pool fence one lunchtime. One day, as we drove to the lodge, there was a family of Warthogs by their den, under an old tree stump between the lodge and the neighbours.

The trips offered by the lodge are excellent. On two of them, we were the only people on the trip and hence had exceptional service, and the service provided was excellent. The lodge has 2 safari vehicles that it operates itself, and offers a number of trips organised by third parties, for which it provides transport from the lodge to the venue, so your car may not leave the car park! However, if you have the time, go for a drive down by the Crocodile River and stop at the view points, as you'll get a chance to see elephant, crocodiles, hippo, rhino and buffalo, as well as other animals. The best times at dawn and dusk, and we found between 15:30 and 17:00 to be best in April.

This is the kind of lodge that I will recommend to my friends. Very cosy and staff very friendly. Is perfect to stay in the middle of the nature as we could see some animals on the surroundings and it is not that far from Kruger entrance.

We spent there one night and enjoy the buschcamp chalet. The road was in a very poor codition after the heavy rain, hoever the warm welcoming of the staff made up for this. The owner was very helpful when we logged a complaint regarding the hotel room and he moved us immediatly to a chalet. We loved the bushveld atmsphere around the fire. Staff is very friendly and helpfull.

Room Tip: We preferred the chalt

Hello Jan,

Thank you for your kind review and also taking the time to write it.

We enjoyed your short but sweet stay and hope that you will come for a little longer the next time you come to visit.

Our roads were recently graded and are in a much better condition that what they were after the heavy rain.

May you have a lovely week ahead.

The staff was very engaging, unfortunately, we found the owner not to be guest friendly. His attitude toward our party in reference to dinner selections, time for meals, and accommodating our dinner guests was nothing short of rude and unprofessional.

Dear Client

Thank you for taking the time to send us a review. We greatly appreciate it!

We would like to apologise if you experienced the owner to be rude.

The dinner menu for that night was a set menu, with a option of 2 starters 2 mains and 2 deserts to choose from. The owner only explained that you have 2 options available and that guests can’t choose both starters.

As we serve a four-course meal, selections and portions are prepared in such a way to make sure all guests has the ultimate dining experience.

We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience caused.

We hope to welcome you back soon!

Kindest regards,
Management

We spent there two nights and had a very good time. Service was very nice and two interesting tours in the Kruger Park. Only sleeping was sometimes a bit difficult as it is pretty loud when people are speaking downstairs.
