“Great lodge”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 August 2014

Maritza, Bert, and Sara are fabulous hosts. Bert took our group on wonderful game rides, and the animals and the Pilanesberg Park are magnificent. We stayed in the Elephant Bush Suite and it was beautiful. The food and spirits served were excellent! It is a small lodge which we liked because it did blend in with the surrounding bush. We would definitely go back there. It's a beautiful spot in the African bush.

Room Tip: Depends on what view you want, but we preferred the bush view rooms.

Maritza, Sara and Bert made it a perfect stay! They are warm-hearted, attentive and pleasant hosts. Bert took the two of us (because we were the only guests) on a private game drive into Pilanesberg for a whole day, explaining everything to us and finding the best spots to view game. Because we mentioned it was our wedding anniversary the day before, our room was especially decorated and a bubble bath run in when we came back from the game drive. I seldom write reviews but this place was awesome!

Absolutely out of this world. Maritza and Bert made one feel right at home. The rooms were beautiful, and the food divine.

We have not been able to stop talking about our stay there, and was with a very heavy heart that we needed to leave.

The one thing I will never forget is the attention to detail, from the personalized welcome cards, personal considerations for the meals, and special touch added for the celebration of our honeymoon.

Loved it !!!!

This is definitely number 1 on trip advisor for a reason. Such a stunning lodge, intimate, relaxing and quiet. Feels like you're at home the way you can relax in the lounge, eat dinner around the dining room table etc. Game drives are a treat, with drinks & snacks, blankets & a hot water bottle. Pity it was so cold the animals didn't want to come out, but still an awesome time away from the hustle and bustle of Jozi. Thanks so much to the Fouries.
