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 loved our stay at Lindiwe. The house was well equipped and situated on a beautiful location where animals could roam freely around the premesis. Our host Nathalie was very friendly (as were the staff) and willing in helping us out where necessary. We left with pain in our heart!

Property's Favourite Review
The rooms were beautiful and comfortable. The meals were delicious and plentiful. But perhaps best was the care taken by the owners and staff to give guests the best experience from curating amazing safari experiences, to being readily available to help plan the trip, to answering all questions by email and in-person. Can’t say enough good things about how well guests are taken care of!

We were warmly welcomed by Thembi the receptionist. All the staff are friendly . Natalie the owner made us feel at home The place is nice and quiet away from the busy city. The breakfast was good with generous potions. The only minus is that there was no plant based milk ( almond). Other than that all was good. We will definitely come back. Thank you Lindiwe Safari for hosting us.

We really had a great time at Lindiwe Safari Lodge! Patrick and Nathalie where the most amazing host! Patrick gave all the necessary information before which was needed and which we asked for. On place they helped us a lot to find the ideal activities which suited us the best based on time, weather, preference, ... The breakfast and dinner was really excellent! We even asked for some recipes for at home :) At Lindiwe, you really feel at home and you'll have the best possible Kruger experience thanks to the help of Patrick and Nathalie. We are really grateful to stayed there as we had some amazing game drives, the best activities we wanted to do and amazing evenings at the lodge! Thanks! Justine and Axel

The staff and the owners gave us a warm welcome upon our arrival. The owners are hands on, very kind and patient. Breakfast was great, and our stay was awesome. My daughter loved swimming daily. And we enjoyed the scooter rides. The owners went out of their way to help get the 3 wheel scooters sorted for myself and hubby and the scooter ride in the bush was just amazing.

For our first time visiting South-Africa, together with our 6yo, we couldn’t have picked a better place to stay! We stayed for 11 days at this awesome place run by the loveliest people. Patrick and Nathalie were always more than happy to help, advise or organize trips and made us feel right at home. The food is really good, rooms are beautiful and the surrounding area is just breathtaking. Beside the occasionally animal popping up at the lodge itself there are also a lot of family friendly activities to do in the nearby area. We’ve had an amazing time at Lidiwe Safari Lodge and we went home with memories that will last a life time. Thank you so much Patrick & Nathalie!

don't have enough words to express how amazing Lindiwe lodge is. The location was perfect, from the food, to the wild animals, to the cocktails, to the rooms. Everything was first class. The hosts Patrick & Natalie were great... So helpful & friendly. I would 100% recommended Lindiwe to anyone wanting that extra special trip to the wilds of South Africa with a personal touch. There is so much to do and see all within 30 minutes. We will definitely be going back 😄

Very welcoming owners and staff. Great location with plenty of wildlife passing by the outdoor lounge and pool area, and plenty of family friendly activities nearby. Food was also delicious, and cocktails as well. Will be back soon, thanks!
