    The property had all the essentials for a comfortable stay but, by far, its best feature is its people. Nosipho, Sindy and even Sandy, went all out to ensure our stay was pleasurable and that is highly appreciated. We didn’t get to experience all the activities since the weather for the first 2 days wasn’t on our side - we got to do the boat cruise around Mtwavuma and my wife loved that. The place is absolutely beautiful and serene. I could definitely imagine coming back with the kids next time around. Thank you again to the staff for welcoming us so warmly as well as the filling breakfast every morning...

    Some things in the room are a bit dated but nothing that spoils the experience - in any case the lodge did not (over)promise 6 star rooms so I saw what I expected to see from pics on ads. Hot water was just an issue 1st day but once we mentioned it to Nosipho it was sorted out with speed.

    Nothing, it was terrible all round. Would not recommend it at all.

    Absolutely aweful. Terrible service, rude staff and very unclean room. We actually checked out after the first night it was so bad. We will persue a refund, it was a disgusting, terrible experience.
