Everything from superb hosts, to fabulous clean and super comfortable facilities, to wonderful food. We could not fault this lovely lodge and would highly recommend it to any future travellers. We wish we had stayed longer and will be back.
The environment is lovely. Environmental friendly with wild animals moving freely around the lodge.

What can I say about this place?!! Words aren’t enough to describe how fantastic our stay was here. It is incredible! What makes it so remarkable is the heart. The property is run by a beautiful couple, it’s family run and the heart of the place is family. With their two adorable children, immediately when you arrive, you feel welcomed. Sander and Juliet go above and beyond to make you feel comfortable and quickly a part of the African Rock Lodge family. Every evening Sander cooks up a BBQ feast on the braai, which was one of the best meals we had during our stay in South Africa. Everything is priced reasonably, you don’t feel cheated or over charged. Sander does his best to recommend the best tours and excursions to do in the area, again at a very good price. We cannot wait to return to South Africa, just to stay at Africa Rock Lodge and to catch up with my new friend Emily. This place is a joy!!
Nothing! Everything was great.
It's only fair to give African Rock Lodge a 10. We arrived at the lodge after visiting the panoramaroute. It's located perfectly. We booked this based on reviews and pictures. I can tell you that the pictures don't do the lodge enough justice. The lodge is more beautiful in real life. When we arrived the owner, Sander, came out immediatly. Sander speaks the dutch language fluently. I also heared him speak English and German fluently. He helped us with our lugage and showed us the room. And what a room! Its decorated in African style, but you still feel right at home. Its provided with adaptors for charging and even extra towels and bathrobes for the swimmingpool. We booked a safari at Krügerpark and it was exactly as described. The lodge provided us with breakfast take away and Sander even got up at 5 to wave us goodbye. We paid the safari when we checked out. The owner didnt charge us the amount that we discused, it was cheaper! It was cheaper because 2 other people went with us on the sagari. So a 10 for honesty! We slept perfect at this lodge, it was quiet and the bed was great. In the morning we went on a mountianbikeride, which Sander recommended. The bikes were provided for free. And it was awesome!! Seeing wild animals, such as giraffes, pass while riding a bike, it's an experience we will never forget. After the ride, we took a swim in the swimmingpool. The pool was freshly cleaned and had the perfect temperature. We ate dinner twice at this lodge. And breakfast once inside the lodge. And what a meals!!!! All the meals were freshly made and it was a buffet. So you can choose between different meats and veggies. I would deffinetly book this lodge if i'm ever in the area again.
Everything was perfect, the hospitality was just great.
Everything exceeded our expectations.
