Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We stayed at Twiga tower for a week and absolutely loved it! Beautiful and stylish house with all the equipment you could dream of!Elize and Yurgen were just amazing......We didn't want to leave:) Their Braai dinners are an absolute feast! The house is conveniently located in the wildlife reserve, so you you don't have to go far to see the animals, they come to you. Hosts helped us with arranging our Safaris and everything went smoothly. Kids were so impressed and happy. Every morning we had our breakfast on the terrace surrounded by birds, monkeys and other nosy creatures. Thanks Elize and Yurgen!

In May of 2018 after Some coincidences my wife and I ended up at Twiga Towers. Lucky us, it was without a doubt the absolute best place we stayed at in all of South-Africa (and we visited many). Not only are the rooms perfect, cosy and really well designed, the owners are real friendly people as well. Even though we only stayed the 1 night, we talked a lot and got along great (which is why I feel guity I didn’t wekte this review earlier, I know how much they appreciate it :)). There’s also a small swimming pool and Some wild warthogs that come say hello (from behind the fence, luckily). Be sure to not feed them your Phone like i almost did. If we ever happen to be around Hoedspruit again, we know where we’re sleeping. Wout & Wendy

A peaceful & beautiful home in a bush estate with wonderful accomodating hosts. All the rooms are very tastefully decorated. Different activities can be arranged by the owners, including day trips to Kruger, and there are some great restaurants in town. This establishment comes highly recommended.

This is friendly South Africa at its best. Elize and Jurgens are great hosts and try to make all your wishes come true. One should try the house made meals for dinner. They are awesome. You should book your stay in advance and should discuss your plans with Elize upfront. She is realky great in putting the perfect mix together for your stay. The lodge is situated in the middle of the Hoedspruit Wildlife Resort. This means the arrea arround is contains Warthogs, Giraffes, Zebras, Impalas and other animals and quite often some of them take their "meal" next to the lodge. The lodge is next to the Eastgate Airport and therefore good to reach from CPT, JNB and other ZA-airports. An airport shuttle from Eastgate is provited. It is also just a 5-hours drive from Jo-burg by car. This is a place of kindness, hospitality and closeness to nature. It is simply unique.
