“Great hospitality”
Reviewed 4 August 2014

Lovely owners running a well maintained and ever expanding lodge. Rooms were comfortable, although mine was a little dark and more lighting would have been helpful. The food was great and the staff were very friendly

My second time at Kubu. A warm atmosphere with friendly and helpfull staff.

Best food and we really enjoyed the bush walk.

The silence is worth everything. Cheap rates which is a bonus.

Will definately stay there again!!

Of a sympathetic German couple run lodge. A neat, well-kept house with functional rooms. No luxury accommodation but quite homey. Beautiful are the walks that you can do with the owner and / or the family dog ​​love. A good location to take to various wildlife watching.

Room Tip: The location does not matter, the hotel has a great location.

The lodge is away from the not-main-road, about 45 minutes drive away from Kruger.
However, it looks lovely and very well kept, staff is very friendly and helpful and food (including the braai that was served on the 2nd evening of our stay, the breakfastpackages and lunch served in Krugerpark during the safari) was really good but not cheap. (Free) wifi available in the lobby-area. Rooms are ok, no tv (but who needs one in places like this?), with a nice shower, a good bed but only in the bathroom one electricity point.

We stayed for just under a week and had booked the Hakuna Matata package, which includes all sorts of different excursions. The lodge itself is set in beautiful, spacious grounds, everything is very well maintained and clean. The rooms are very comfortable and tastefully done, and the food is really great - not just at the lodge itself, but even on the trips. I didn't visit the gym myself, but my friend was very impressed. What really made it an unforgettable experience for me though was the people: Nicole, Manfred and their team just made us feel instantly at home and took incredibly good care of us. We didn't have to worry about or plan anything, just show up. The atmosphere in general was very relaxed and friendly, so while we packed a lot into the short space of time, it never felt that way. I came away feeling more refreshed than I have in a long time, the only downside was that leaving was a real wrench - definitely plan to go back!

This lodge offers you for the price good value and quality rooms. It would be nice to have air conditioning in the hot climate, but you can not expect it for this price. Good food and good position for excursions to the Drakensberg and krueger Park.
