I want to like this place more - it has very tastefully decorated quaint little cabins, pretty landscape and easy access to the tourist delights outside of Johannesburg. The staff were helpful and accommodated our needs and requests. A little on the pricey side perhaps given the location, but they helped us organise some great trips out to Pilanesberg and a great evening meal out at the Carnivore restaurant nearby.
The restaurant was very pleasant inside but the food was dreadful - including undercooked chicken that I had to send back to the kitchen twice to have it cooked sufficiently. The lodge didn't feel especially safe which is always a concern in Johannesburg. Low cut fences, inapparent security made me feel nervous at night - and I've lived and traveled extensively in South Africa so am accustomed to dealing with safety issues.
On the whole probably worth a stay but definitely needs some improvement.
