My family of four (two adults, children of 13 and 15) stayed at Pestana Kruger Lodge one week in July. Unfortunately, the first three nights vere unusual cold (-1 oC), so the rooms were a bit uncomfortable this period. However, I asked for extra blankets and they were delivered to our rooms promptly. The dining room was always warm and nice all the time. When the night temperature increased to a normal level, the rooms were very comfortable.
I am a bit surprised by some of the negative comments regarding the food. We experienced that the service was a bit slow when ordering lunch on the terrace, and that most of the dishes included french fries (which we are not that fond of). However, when we asked for something else instead of chips, the staff really made an effort serving us delicious sandwiches with more bread and salad. The breakfast and dinner buffet was always very delicious presented and contained a lot of different and tasty dishes. We really enjoyed eating there.
The view from the terrace was stunning, and we spent all our time not being on safari looking at the animals coming down to the river. Å perfect combination with a glass of wine or cold sparkling water.
