Hennie's Rest - Malelane - Building

Overview Reviews
With a stay at Hennies Rest in Malelane, you'll be on a river, within a 10-minute drive of Kruger National Park Malelane Gate and Inkwazi Shopping Centre. Free self parking is available onsite.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The views, staff was friendly and the proximity to Kruger national park.
6.3 Good
Pros: The view is breathtaking and the pool devine. Saw a lot of animals passing by during the day.
Cons: The aircon was on a timer. The room that I stayed in is very noisy because of the upper deck. You can hear all movements from the tennants upstairs. They have a big problem with their plumbing system.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Fantastic location and people loved it
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Great location. Beautiful views. Quiet
5.5 Okay
Pros: The location overlooking the Crocodile River is superb.
Cons: The apartment that I rented was the upper apartment of a house divided into two self contained apartments. The property is currently rented by the owner of Hennies Rest and so property maintenance is the responsibility of the owner - and it appears that he or she does not do any. The terrace from the main bedroom has collapsed and is 'awaiting repair'. The main wooden balcony is, basically, a death trap. A very flimsy guard rail and decking that is lifted and splintered in many places. Security in the area is clearly an issue - the front door frame has some botched repairs to where the door lock has clearly been forced at some time. The rear, kitchen door is nailed shut with strips of wood from the inside to prevent unlawful entry - so it cannot be used and the doors to the balcony are extremely flimsy - and the balcony can be accessed by external stairs. I arrived on a Thursday for a 5 night stay and the Air Conditioning stopped working on Friday evening. I was not able to contact the owner until 24 hours later and, although she did bring in an engineer, it was not possible to repair the AC unit. She did bring a free standing fan but with temperatures of plus 40 degrees, it was as much use as a chocolate tea pot. I did not stay for the intended - and paid for - five nights. Compared to other locations that I have stayed in South Africa this was overpriced and the worst. I could not recommend - especially if you have children.
3.8 Mediocre
Pros: The location was good
Cons: I was very disappointed with the room, we didn’t even stay the full time. We ended up spendings one night.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Perfect place! We have seen from our pool many animals come to the river to drink and cross the river-hyaena elephants, kudu and a variety of birds. The elephants came close to eating from the trees and were 50 meters from us! Like a dream, eating pasta and wine looking on the river at the sunset :) The place is tastefully decorated, equipped and clean. Cornelia hosted us and made us feel part of the family.

9.3 Excellent
Pros: The rooms were very well appointed and extremely comfortable. The staff went above and beyond - very helpful and with a good grace.
Cons: We were going into the Kruger Park self-catering and the fridges in the rooms were tiny. We would not have coped at all had the staff not helped us out by providing freezer space for our freezer blocks and fridge space as well. However, it did make leaving early in the morning a longer and more arduous process.

Pros: OMG the gardens were so beautiful! And so close to the Kruger National Park! The room was very comfortable and clean. The bathroom was nice and roomy. The room had a little patio onto the gardens with a table and 2 chairs. At the entrance of the room, there was a little kitchenette with a fridge and microwave. Every day we got water bottles, coffee, tea, sugar & milk. And chocolates on our pillows every night. Thank you! The staff were very efficient and friendly. We've requested take-away breakfasts and they were always ready and on-time for our early departures to visit the Kruger National Park. On the day of our departure we had breakfast at the lodge, and it was exceptional!

9.3 Excellent
Pros: Great accomodation..nice view to crocodile river and animals from our terrace
7.5 Good
Pros: The lodge is right next to the Crocodile river, so in the morning we observed crocodiles and hippos in it. There is a nice view on the river and the Kruger Park on the opposite bank. The dinner was great and breakfast also nice on kind of a terrace/open restaurant. Room was comfortable with a nice natural design and a nice view from the balcony. With.a car it is like 5-10 minutes from the Malelane gate to the Kruger Park.
Cons: I am not sure what is around the lodge, if there is something to do directly as we stayed only 1 night, but it did not seem so, so if you stay longer, not sure what you can do around but here I am not sure. I was not convinced with the cleanliness - especially the bathroom needed some more attention regarding cleaning and may need some reparation. Some tiles were not clean, tap on the basin was loose and the toilet did not flush properly. In general, the lodge in nice, but for the money we simply expected something more.
9.5 Excellent
Pros: The house is so close to Kruger, one evening we saw two hippos, the next day Elefants were in front of the terrace: amazing view from terrace into the Kruger. We really enjoyed dinner and the friendly staff.
Cons: Old house, room was old and no fridge with cold water. Anyway it was ok for the spare time we were in the room. Most time of the day we spent on safari. Nevertheless interesting style of the house with Charme.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The view on the Kruger park (with plenty of animals) The quiet location The bed (omg the bed!) The food

Cons: Room was too hot , AC way too small for the size of the room
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The food was first class and way above expectations. The view from the room over the river was also way better than we expected. It was great to wake up in the morning and walk out onto the verandah and see crocodiles swimming and in the afternoon see elephants coming down to the river. The staff were the lodges best feature. Friendly and helpful. We could not have asked for better hospitality. We thoroughly recommend organising a park guide through the hotel. We will stay at Buhala Lodge again.
Cons: Leaving!
Jock Safari Lodge - Malelane - Building

9.7 Excellent (38 reviews)
Overview Reviews
With a stay at Jock Safari Lodge in Kruger National Park, you'll be in a national park, and 19.6 mi (31.5 km) from Sabi Sands Game Reserve and 24.2 mi (39 km) from Skukuza Golf Course. Featured amenities include dry cleaning/laundry services, a 24-hour front desk, and multilingual staff. Free self parking is available onsite.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: After driving around Kruger on our own for two weeks, we stayed two nights at Jock Safari Lodge and predictably those two nights added so much to our experience. Leopards, lion cubs, lions hunting buffalo, hyena cubs, wild rides through the dry river beds. We had a great time, largely due to our wonderful guide, Jan, who we highly recommend. The room was beautiful, with a huge veranda complete with outside shower, tiny plunge pool, bed in case you wanted to sleep outside, and many other neat features.
Cons: The booking wasn’t as straightforward as it usually is when we book through booking.com. We had to fill out special forms and make payments directly to the hotel, which involved back and forth emails. Probably wouldn’t have mattered as much if we hadn’t been traveling in Madagascar at the time.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: It’s hard to say enough positive things about Jocks. The location, rooms, food, facilities superb. I honestly don’t know how they were able to cook such consistently amazing food in the middle of Krueger park day after day. Jan our guide made sure we saw all of the big 5 multiple times and many many other amazing animals. We had a lovely visit on our deck by a family of monkeys- adorable and very smart-and often saw elephants walking in the riverbed in front of the lodge. But perhaps best of all are the staff. Not sure I’ve ever experienced that level of care. AB, Jan, and all the staff, Thank you! Nancy OConnor
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Rooms are large and comfortable. Very clean. Open air bed is something special, even if monkeys can be noisy :) . Game rides are very good as well , guides will get you see the big five and much more. Food is good as well but they need to do something with breakfast times. We had to leave for the airport at 8 am and we came for breakfast at 0730. There was nothing except coffee and the airport is 2 hrs drive away. When we asked for sandwich or something we were told that nothing was available from the kitchen. General manger had his stuff meeting just righ next to us . That was disappointing a bit. But otherwise the place is good and we would it recommend to anyone visiting Kruger park for a day or two.
9.3 Excellent
Pros: It was amazing time at Jock, a rustic chic hotel. We saw all the Big Five twice in two days of Game Drive. Our ranger Jan was excelent. Jock is a fantastic option to stay. The staff was so kind and great. All the meals were so delicious. I really recomend for everbody. The room has everything we need and there is a great view from the bed.
Cons: No shower inside the room.

Cons: It is a very quirky and original lodge. If you want a wide menu choice this is not for you. But we embraced it.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: We cannot wait to return to the River House Lodge. I wish we were able to stay longer than two nights and three days. It felt too short. Johan is a wonderful host and the ground are absolutely stunning. The view is unforgettable!!! The house, staff and vibe are so charming and unique. The neighborhood is great and not too far from Kruger Airport and the Kruger Park (which is one of the main reasons why chose the Lodge). We all fell in love with our park driver, Chris of EleSab; the drive was arranged by Johan. So I cannot thank him enough. Chris was absolutely an amazing guide! I hope to keep in touch with them all and see them next year for another drive!
Cons: I didn't know that we should have looked into renting a car to get to the lodge. But it now makes total sense! Next time I will book a car in advance. (However, it wasn't a pain at all going to Thrifty so it really wasn't an issue). I didn't like to leave!

Pros: The deck overlooking the Kruger National park and the Crocodile river with views of animals roaming the river at various times and the golden sunsets as viewed from both the room we stayed in and from the deck.
Cons: The size of the rooms are a tad to tiny, though it is great for overnight facility when you are exploring the Kruger and just looking for something to lay down at night. (This is particular to the room we stayed in, and I cannot talk about the other rooms/chalets/etc. available). The Curio Shop was exceptionally expensive in relation to shops within the Kruger and other Curio Shops in the area.

Pros: The location to go to Kruger National Park

3.8 Mediocre
Cons: The bed was uncomfortable, the food was tasteless, they weren’t willing to accommodate special dietary requirements, they weren’t willing to accommodate our booking to be two houses next to each other. The water was brown, we had to waste water for 15min to try and clear the water, after this our bathroom basin leaked all over the floor, the shower drain didn’t work and the bottom of the shower only drained by the morning. The buffet selection wasn’t wonderful either, for omelettes they only serve onion, tomato and cheese. For the dinner buffet there were hardly any vegetables. For a 4 star hotel I would at least expect a nespresso machine in the room.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Serenity is in the middle of the rain forest, about 12 km off the main road via rough road. The whole site is raised on stilts above a flowing stream and waterfalls. The rooms are large and have windows onto the forest all around. The service was polite, quiet and friendly. Food was very good, big servings and very tasty. We really felt in the middle of wilderness. We saw 4 giraffes, lots of impala, 3 Nyala, 1 red diker, land crabs, lots of butterflies, forest flowers and amazing trees on the site. There are 2 forest walks , one of us managed to finish the easy one, so go fit. You walk up the stream as far as you feel able. Really restful stay, within about 40 minutes of Kruger National Park. Would stay again.
Cons: Nothing
9.5 Excellent
Pros: The drive up from Malelane into the valley and then the mountains was really lovely. Hidden gem right in the forest with a river running through it. I recommend Forest Rooms. Lovely owls hooting in the night. Setting in the forest is beautiful and unique in that area, so close to Kruger park. Good place to stay if you are not staying in Kruger - drive is not too far to the gate which opens at 6am. We did not eat as we left early to go to the park.

8.0 Excellent
Pros: 1) Location was awesome! Closest place to Kruger Park. 2) Place was very cozy! 3) Staff are friendly 4) Easy access to property 5) Close to town
Cons: 1) The pool was absolutely filthy! Highly disappointed at the fact that we could not swim, even though I asked the very friendly gentleman long before our stay if we would be able to use the pool facilities. It looked as if no care was taken to the pool at all in a long time! 2) No iron or ironing board provided. 3) All of table tops and basins, in the kitchen and bathroom are way too high. However this is alleviated by the standing stools provided.

Pros: Good location at proximity to Kruger south gate. Bed was good and nice to have a fridge.

Pros: Was clean and quiet.
Cons: On booking.com price was R585, when I get there they called me a liar and said they always charge it R650. Now is day after check out and tjey changed their price to R600 on booking.com, But I guess who ever come to this giesthouse will still be charhed R650. Lady at reception took my smartphone when I was looking and went trough my bookings to check if I am saying the truth. That is not acceptable in any way. And then I asked if I can go and comeback any time during night or gate is closed, that same lady on reception was laughing and saying "you came to sleep not to go arround". The guy at the gate was great though, and place was clean. Shower had was so bad and clogged with calcium, no way to shower nice.
