We knew the moment we arrived at reception our family was "at home away from home". Ditholo is a warm, clean and family friendly atmosphere in the Africa bush. There were many excellent opportunities to see the wildlife even to the last night when 5 giraffes were eating right outside our beautiful family chalet (we could have reached out to touch one...). The food was outstanding and the staff exceptionally hospitable; eagerly attending to our every need. I have experienced Alaska and Hawaii; Ditholo will stand out in our memories forever.

We had a lovely stay at Ditholo! The careful attention to detail and ensuring our comfort really made it worth while. We had a lovely spa treatment and would recommend it to anyone who want to sit back and recharge in a lovely bushveld environment. Thank you for a lovely relaxing weekend!

When welcomed by friendly staff, we knew that we were going to enjoy our stay. The game lodge was well maintained. The food was always delicious. We enjoyed having a drink with the stunning view of the dam and the hippos and nature at it's best! The game drive was very relaxing and educating and we saw lots of game. The rooms where beautiful with a nice warming touch. We will definitely visit the lodge again. Theuns, Susan and John were very welcoming and made us feel special! Thank you for your kindness. We can definitely recommend Ditholo lodge to anyone looking for the perfect breakaway from the busy life. Regards Armandt & Melissa

Room Tip: Room 15 had a nice big king size bed and a stunning bathroom.

My girlfriend and i went to Ditholo lodge to get out of the city rush. We arrived around 20h00 on the 17th May and received a warm welcome drink. just what we needed at that moment.

Susan and Theuns (managers) made as comfortable by pointing out the bar, the deck and walk us to our room which was room 4. they told as to feel free to report any problems. After dinner we went back toour room and the TV was not working, and report it to Theuns and within 10 minutes the maintance guy got us back on air.

As a last minute thought we want to do a game drive, sadly at that stage it was fully booked. The game ranger came to us with good news and told us that there is a cancellation and we can go if we still want to.

The morning of departure (19th May) my girl went for a full body spa treatment which was a hour long and she was in heavens and told me it was value for money. Then it was time to check out (11h00) and hit the road back home. As we exit the door we were greeted by the whole Ditholo team

We will see you shortly, well done Ditholo team!!
Keep it up!!

I would just like to mention that I was at your lodge for a weekend about 3 weeks ago and I really enjoyed my stay. I must say you have very friendly and helpful staff, especially Susan and Teuns. They are very professional and great at what they do.
