“No more rhinos”
Reviewed 27 August 2013

They have given their rhinos away so it was disappointing and we did our activities in Hluhluwe instead. The food was very good and our luxury tent was fun. It was cold at night so we asked for a heater which worked very well. We were very pleased with our stay there for 2 nights. a lot of vervet monkeys visited the balcony of our granddaughters tent.

We went as a family for a weekend at Falaza. We were impressed with the location, restaurant, service and food but the tented camp was a little more rustic than we envisioned for a four star rated venue. The tents lacked the feeling of luxury but were comfortable. Waking up to a view of animals so close to the camp was the highlight.

My daughter and I spent 4 nights at Falaza tented lodge. The service, rooms and toiletries were great. The breakfasts were unoriginal but the dinners were very good. There was no variety for kids at all and the regular menu was very small. The spa was good. The most worthwhile activity was the horse riding safari. Upp close viewing of many animals and lovely horses for all abilities. We enjoyed our stay!

My husband and I had four wonderful days here for our wedding in November 2012. The property is absolutely stunning the pictures don't do it justice and the staff go above and beyond. My wedding was truely amazing, we were lucky enough to have giraffe and zebra wonder in on the action and stay for the ceremony and photographs! The little added extras and sentiments made all the difference too. My new husband, bridesmaid and photographers were taken on a special game drive specifically so we could have photos taken with the animals and because of the chance of rain the staff worked tirelessy setting up the lounge - removing sofas armchairs and pine tables and putting up fairy lights and more candles than you can imagine. It was beyond perfect. Also we saw more animals on the Falaza game drive than the Big 5. The spa is fabulous too. We took our 2 young children with us and the reception manager and Sam (restaurant) went out of the way to accomodate for them - colouring books, meals a travel cot for my baby daughter - early breakfasts and extra snacks on the morning of our game drives. The service is second to none! Nothing was too much hassle and Sam is a credit to the reserve. Really cannot recommend the Falaza Game Park and Spa enough. AMAZING!

Tent style rooms are very cool. However after 3 days no air con ur ready to go. Included breakfast which was good food, restaurant staff are sweet. There are extra add on tours to do. Cheeta rehab centre and the croc park was good value as the cheers are most rare to find in parks and we did a hippo and croc tour. Saw loads of hippos which are very cute but no crocs. Spa / massage not really easily made available. Advise to book in advance. St Lucia is a great we town about an hour before hluhluwe. Worth a visit and even a stay. Outside bath in our room was very nice.

I'm not one to enjoy camping, so when I was told we'd be staying in tents, I was wary. I shouldn't have been. My tent had a tea service, king-size bed and incredible shower with outside tub (although it was too cold to use). Our party included a 3-year old child, and when we ate, the chef was great to make sure he had what he would eat. The food was good - it was on the better end of average, but it wasn't something that made me say it was incredibly wonderful. We really enjoyed the staff with whom we interacted. The game drive was good. We were able to see the rhino and many other animals. As a visitor from the States, I really had little idea what to expect, and I was pleasantly surprised.

Easy access on an excellent road to this lodge, which is located in beautiful bushveld terrain. The public areas (mostly under thatch) are attractive. They include a spacious lounge, a bar, an inside/outside restaurant, a seminar room and a spa. The guest accommodation comprises 15 luxury tents, generally well appointed, but here and there in need of maintenance. There is good viewing of game (antelope, rhino, warthog etc) at close quarters from the lodge itself, although game trails are also catered for. The chief disappointment is a complete absence of visible management or supervision. Not surprisingly therefore, service is lackadaisical and the food is uninteresting and mediocre.

Room Tip: Insist on one of the half-dozen tented chalets on the front perimeter overlooking the savannah
