I stayed at the lodge from July 4-15, 2014. I cannot say anything bad about Kerneels and Vanessa and the whole experience. The lodging and food was great. We ate wild meat almost every night and it was amazing. Grace is an excellent cook. Nico is a gracious manager and a good tour guide. I took all five recommended tours to include Addo Elephant Park, David Cheetah preserve, the lion preserve, the tree top experience, and Addo elephant ride. All were worthwhile and enjoyable. The rooms were nice, the lodge beautiful, and the service good. It is a very good value for the money. I highly recommend them.
