Pros: We absolutely enjoyed our stay at the Lions Place - excellent accommodation with very good facilities and comfortable beds. Breakfast, dinner and wines were very delicious! The owner, JB is a professional and passionate ranger. We did with him a game drive afternoon and full day safari in the Kruger Park. It was an amazing and unforgettable experience! We saw many different animals thanks to JB and we have learned a lot from him about the area. I can highly recommend Lions Place!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Having dinner on the terrace outside is special, elephants will join sometimes!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: A lot of things was very good. Its a nice and quite place. A lot of animals. We had every day a great breakfast and delicious dinner. If you do a gamedrive you go on a jeep and search with the ranger (JB or Kyara) for animals. There is also a great landscape. Nice pool. There is also a natural pool were a lot of animals go. When we arrived there was a group of Olifants at the natural waterpool. We were standing not more then 10 meters from the olifants. - JB and Kyara they did a great job. They do a lot for you and tells a lot about the animals and history.. They put a lot of offerts to look for animals. - Memphis and Pretty they also did a great job. Very nice people and made very nice breakfast and dinner. It was a great time.
Cons: Nothing. It was just perfect.
9.5 Excellent
Pros: - Very nice, helpful hosts and team. We all directly felt welcome and even made an extra game drive for free in the late evening when lions were sighted in the area (and we found them!!). The whole team are knowledgeable guides. - High level of privacy at the lodge, it is in the middle of the bush with the next lodge not visible and has a maximum of 6 guests. The drive to the Phalaborwa gate of the Kruger National Park takes about 40 min. - Wild animals are living in the surrounding nature reserve and are coming to the own water hole - Breakfast and dinner have been very good
Cons: The family room for four persons consists of two separate rooms with only one bathroom, which is accessible only from one of the rooms and furthermore cannot really be closed. This gave us some challenges to organize the bathroom times. This second room without the direct access to a toilet also does not have air conditioning nor a wardrobe or a cupboard and therefore lacks some comfort for the guests living there. Especially the bathroom situation could have been described a bit clearer.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: We had a wonderful stay at the Lions Place, thanks to the competence and passion of JB, the owner, and Chiara. They made us discover wild life, an exciting experience for all the family. Our two kids (6 and 8 years old) loved it: they say the Lions' Place is the best hotel they have ever been! The lodge is a traditional, beautiful house, with only a family room and a room for couple. It is in the middle of a private reserve not far from public Krueger, with elephants, civets, porcupines and other wild animals that come close, a nice small pool and an observation tower to enjoy a great view and beautiful sunsets. Wonderful dinners by the fire and very good breakfasts. We enjoyed a lot the safaris, both those in the private reserve and the full day in Krueger (where we spotted a leopard!): fun and instructive at the same time. JB was even so kind to bring my car's flat tire to the city and get it repaired at no costs for us! Memorable experience, thanks for everything! Grazie e spero a presto!!!
Cons: Nothing/rien/niente
10.0 Excellent
Pros: It's almost impossible to explain what we liked most about this place. Some people say it was just like home when they had a good experience at a place. But Lions Place makes you feel like being on holiday. Never felt that feeling before that I could stay for a month somewhere. JP and JB are such great rangers and persons. They know so much, but also have a great way of telling it to you. We laughed a lot. Speaking about laughing. Special thanks to Danielle who is such a friendly and cheerful person. Her breakfast and dinner are something you look forward to. If you are around Grietjie, (in a range of 300 km) Lions place is the place you should go to.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Very pleasant atmosphere, great food, very hospitable, a realy nice place, we'll come back in any case!!!!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Fantastic lodge about a half an hour drive from Kruger's Phalaborwa gate. Intimate setting with very personable staff. Great opportunity to experience some of the rarer animals: we spotted wild dogs across the "Olifantsrivier" and - true to its name - lions twice during game drives with its guides.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Personal attention from JB. The amazing diners made by Pretty The last minute lion and elephant spotting trip The cool thing about a little place like this is that you are definately not "just" a guest, keep it up JB and we recommend to everyone!!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: It was on honour to be a guest at this place. We stayed for 2 nights and did the 1 day kruger national park. Great guiding and personal approach, he tried to find what we were looking for. The rooms were well equiped and clean. The food was excellent, candle light dinner in open air, they even gave us a box with some leftovers for on the road, beyond exeptations! We would book this place again.
Muweti Bush Lodge - Phalaborwa - Bedroom

Overview Reviews
With a stay at Muweti Bush Lodge in Phalaborwa, you'll be just steps from Balule Game Reserve and Grietjie Game Reserve. A shuttle from the airport to the hotel is provided for a surcharge during limited hours, and free self parking is available onsite.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: We enjoyed a superb few days at Muweti. Game drives were great fun and we learned a lot - Mike, Hardus & Lynette were all very passionate and informative. We had six drives and were fortunate to see both elephants & lions (once each), many giraffes/ zebras/ wildebeest, jackal and the occasional impala ;), among others. The food was faultless - plentiful breakfast, a light lunch, then a full supper (with other guests and the hosts); we particularly enjoyed BBQ night! Rooms spotlessly clean (thanks to the cleaning staff, too) and more than ample space. Probably worth mentioning that you are staying in the bush and so there's a good chance you'll see a few bugs around your room (there is, of course, a secure mosquito net). Thanks to Mike, Laura & team, for a fantastic safari trip - we'd love to return some day!
Cons: Nothing!

Mbizi Bush Lodge - Phalaborwa - Bedroom

9.7 Excellent (75 reviews)
Overview Reviews
With a stay at Mbizi Bush Lodge in Phalaborwa, you'll be just steps from Balule Game Reserve and Grietjie Game Reserve. The front desk is staffed during limited hours. Free self parking is available onsite.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: This place was a wonderful surprise - I didnt know what to expect but the setting was amazing, with the view out towards the Drakensberg from the pool, and the wildlife coming in to the waterhole. Plus Divya and Bjorn were the most engaging and impressive hosts. I would recommend this over more expensive places. Food was wonderful too. Other guests saw a leopard and cub several times while I was there (of course I missed them....)
Cons: There were no negatives at all - I would recommend this place over much more expensive places in other private reserves around Kruger.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: As with all private game reserves in this area, it takes some effort to get there, but once you're at Mbizi, Divia & Bjorn and their staff with their great hospitality ensure a warm welcome and a great stay. Bjorn does the drives and does all he can do to spot game. Hope that we can go back in future!
9.5 Excellent
Pros: Nice view, excellent hosts and staff, great food, pool overlooking a small “valley“ with game to spot, interesting game drives in the reserve (surcharge), rooms/chalets are nicely furnished and clean, no fences around the lodge (game might be waiting right outside your door), well equiped bar, We definitely recommend this place!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: It was perfect! Great location, small (only 4 lodges), Divya and Bjorn are lovely. Bjorn knows a lot about the animals and bush, we did a game drive with him and heard a lot of stories (and seen a lot of animals). Divya is the chef and makes lovely 3 course meals. They really take an extra step for you, they decorated our table on our birthday! Their lodge is not fenced, so there is a good possibility you see animals when you enjoy your coffee or wine at the terrace. Little Noah is their son and very adorable. Make sure you stay there for at least 3 nights, so you can enjoy the Kruger park and Grietjie ànd have time to relax at their property. Definitely recommend to stay with them.
Cons: Nothing at all, it was absolutely amazing.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: We loved everything at this Place! The rooms was spacious and clean, decorated in a very nice style. The staff was friendly and welcoming at every time. Björn and Divya are an incredible friendly and welcoming couple that both are doing very well. The meals that Divya served were absolutely brilliant and the game drives we had with Björn have been our highlight experiences during our trip through South Africa. On Christmas Eve they organised 2 artists that played typical African music while we have been sitting at the fireplace. They cared about so many small details and did everything to let us feel like at home. The lodge is located very well and it is easy to get there. The next gate into Kruger park is only 30 minutes away. After a long day in the sun we loved to relax at the pool or had a drink at the well sorted bar. Even if we stayed for three weeks it wouldn’t be enough. We will surely come back the next time we are in South Africa!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: We had a great time at the Mbizi Bush Lodge! The owners, a young couple from London, are super nice and took very good care of us. The Bungalows are very clean with a stylish interior. The food is an excellent fusion of South African and Asian cuisine with a different three course menu every night. We had Chinese style chicken wings, ostrich steak and malva pudding mini cake the first night and shrimps with satay dip, Korean style lamb and matcha cheese cake the second night. The Lodge is located directly in extended Kruger (balule nature reserve) without any fences, so you really get to experience life in the bush. Right after we arrived, Bjoern, the owner of the lodge, took us on a 3h safari drive around balule and a 12h drive trough Kruger national park on the next day. He was genuinely interested in showing us all the animals and giving us interesting insights. You can tell he loves what he is doing.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: We had a wonderful time at the Lodge! It is located in the middle of the bush without any fences, which makes you feel close to nature and animals around. We always felt save. Guests are accompanied to the room after dinner by the host. The food is a highlight as well, it's incredibly delicious! Perfect spot to do game drives in the reserve or drive to Kruger National Park. Highly recommended!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Everything was literally perfect. We had no idea which part of Kruger is good for staying as the area is huge and there are so many options, so we chose this one purely based on its reviews and it was the best decision we made for our trip in SA. SA was amazing but we hadn’t thought that we’d come back until we arrived in Mbizi Bush Lodge. The couple running the lodge was very nice and as the only guests in the lodge (we were very lucky) we could spend some time with the them and learn more about Kruger. They are so knowledgeable about the park and truly enjoying what they do. The game drive we did with Bjorn was amazing. We learnt so much about safari and were impressed about how much he cares about the animals. The room was very nicely decorated and the view from the pool was absolutely stunning. Every single meal we had was very delicious and Divya never failed to impress us with her recipe. We only stayed there for 3 nights so obviously spent most of our time in Kruger but if you read this, don’t make the same mistake we did. The lodge itself is as charming as Kruger. We wished we spent more time just relaxing by the pool and enjoying our amazing food. We can’t wait to come back soon!
Cons: Wished we had more time

Pros: Perfect location in a wonderful landscape. Felt more like visiting friends than being in a hotel.

Pros: Excellent friendly customer service, great location for Kruger National Park and tastefully designed and well equipped.
Cons: We were kept awake for long periods of time on both of the nights we stayed by a dog barking near by, but other than that it was a lovely stay. There were lots of fine details, tissues, toilet roll stickers and water bottles branded with the name of the hotel, and although it gave an upmarket feel, it wasn't completely necessary-- the place spoke for itself.

When you a stay at Casart Game Lodge in Phalaborwa, you'll be in a national park, just steps from Balule Game Reserve and Grietjie Game Reserve. A roundtrip airport shuttle is provided for a surcharge (available on request), and free self parking is available onsite.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Staff and facilities perfect and brilliant. I recommend to any person wanting to travel and go to the bush for a romantic getaway , it is the most amazing place to go to with all the big Five game.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: The staff were extremely welcoming, friendly and obliging. Common areas were beautiful, comfortable and relaxing with great views and great sightings at the waterhole. 'Happy', the game ranger absolutely enthusiastic, friendly & knowledgeable tracking down that lion outside the lodge on the last night was such a highlight. Such an awesome experience.
Cons: Casart is a beautiful lodge, however Pumba (our lodge) could do with an upgrade of linen. Also, whilst meals are prepared with great care and are tasty, they're quite expensive for options offered. However it should be noted that staff were quite obliging to offer alternates when time permitted.

Pros: Lovely staff and host Great accomodation Nice dinner in the evening
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The staff were very attentive and service was very personalised. The dinner that we had added on was great. We had springbok carpaccio and it totally exceeded my expectations. My husband enjoyed the chicken chutney very much as well. The view from the deck looks out to a watering hole and if you were lucky, you could see animals coming to drink water. We also booked a private game drive with the lodge and our guide, Happy, was fantastic. He is extremely knowledgeable about the bush, very friendly and personable, has a great eye for wildlife and immense passion for whatever he's doing as well. Even though the game drive was a little pricey, it was worth every cent. Our stay there was very enjoyable and great thanks to the other staff Moses, Yann, and Stanford too!
Cons: Nothing to do with the lodge but a tip to would-be visiting drivers - rent a SUV and/or a 4WD as the road in is rather rocky and unpleasant to drive on in a regular sedan.

Cons: Nothing
9.3 Excellent
Pros: Very, very comfotable bed, room decorated well. Staff very helpful.
6.8 Good
Pros: Great location, about 5 mins drive from Kruger park. Charming garden and outdoor seating area. Good attention to detail when it comes to decor.
Cons: As a guesthouse, this is perfectly adequate - a stone's throw away from Kruger, comfortable enough. However, rooms are sparse (we stayed in the "honeymoon suite" which was very basic and not particularly large). There isn't much privacy either as the set up is for rooms to be right next to each other, so you can hear everything your neighbours say. For the price, I don't think this was particularly good value. We paid over 100 USD for the night, and while Kruger is perhaps more expensive than other areas in SA, it still didn't add up. The owners, as others noticed, are lovely and very helpful.
7.0 Good
Cons: The rooms were a bit stuffy and the TV channels didn’t include channels we wanted to see

5.0 Okay
Pros: Staff were pleasant. Good selection for breakfast and well prepared.
Cons: After an arduous 7 hour journey from JHB (normally 5 hrs) because of heavy traffic, we arrived at Loerie Lodge at 9pm. Phoned the afterhours number on the gate, to be greeted by the most rude and sarcastic individual who introduced himself as the owner. We were ‘told off’ like children for not managing our time and arriving late. Word of warning don’t arrive after 7pm!! In the time there, never met the individual, he apparently lives off site. Accommodation was average, great if you prefer open plan ablution facilities (bathroom door was missing).

Cons: N/A
5.8 Okay
Pros: 1. The worst breakfast ever. The following day we opted for breakfast elsewhere. 2. The chef or cooker not friendly at all, gave us raw onion and peppers on omlette without verifying with us our preference. 3. We were told the cappuccino machine is broken. We asked for jam, the container was the worst we have ever seen. It would be great if the hotel invested in the small jam packs that you get at many restuarants and outlets. 4. We were given some not so looking good sticks to stir the tea, when we asked for proper stainless steel spoon we were told it is not allowed. .....WHAT A SHAME! 5. We asked for a room re-make, to our disappointment we came back to find our used dirty towels still lying on the floor. The following morning when we asked for towels they gave us small towels for some reason not known to us. 6.The level of noise was bad, not controlled whatsoever.
Cons: It could have been better if the staff took extra care to ensure customer satisfaction.
