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.

Emily can solve any problem - nothing is too big or too small. She arranged Osprey Tours to drive us around, booked activities and restaurants for us. The food is great, decor is lovely and you will meet Harry the resident hornbill. Perhaps a waterbuck sighting from the pool. Take a good book to relax by the pool adn listen to the bush. Heaven!

This exquisite lodge and it's people ensure your stress and strains of the world outside are erased in no time.

The quality of the furnishings, opulence and wildlife themed decor is pleasing on the eye. The large and comfortable, full of natural flowing light rooms are well positioned ensuring privacy.

The table settings change with each meal, and the food delicious and attention given on the presentation.

The staff are discreet,always ready and helpful with friendly smiles.

The reception upon our arrival was professional, warm and beyond friendly. We were welcomed to the lodge with a refreshing complimentary drink, a delicious whiff of the evening's supper, genuinely warm smiles and a particular attention to detail about our dietary requirements, preferences for breakfast, itinerary and then we were ushered through the beautifully adorned common area and tranquil deck overlooking the bush, and lastly the incredibly luxurious spacious Porcupine Room!

Throughout our stay, our room was cleaned daily, and as a super special touch - Connie attended to turn down our rooms (bedding, lighting, etc.) every evening. We looked forward to both breakfast and dinner because we knew we would be spoilt to a delicious spread and very very generous portions. We could tell every meal was carefully considered and prepared with a love and passion for food (thanks Desmond)!

I'm not sure I can go anywhere else after this! The Safari Moon Lodge Team has made it exceptionally hard to find better service, food, rooms, curated experiences and views - an excellent standard has been set! I've unapologetically claimed the lodge as a second home, and the team as family.

Safari Moon made my wife and myself’s honeymoon trip truly special. The Leopard room was spectacular with an amazing view, massive room and bathroom, tasteful decor and everything you need to be comfortable. Nicola and her team also provided 1st class service our entire stay, providing a dinner that was more tasty, fancy looking and also somehow cheaper than most restaurants. The common area, pool area, fire pit, lounging chairs and stunning views provided everything we could’ve wanted. Nicolas team also went the extra mile to make our stay special with a romantic dinner outside and stunning romantic turndowns for our room. Nicola also facilitated anything we wanted to see or do in the area with wonderful advice on how best to experience Hoedspruit. I cant wait to stay there again!

Safari Moon Luxury Bush Lodge sets a benchmark for luxury accommodations with its spacious rooms, impeccable service, and gastronomic delights orchestrated by the talented chefs.
Our time here was nothing short of exceptional, and I recommend this lodge to anyone seeking a premium and indulgent safari getaway.

The spacious rooms not only exude luxury but also offer a tranquil and comfortable retreat. The dedication and friendliness of the entire staff elevate the level of service, making guests feel genuinely welcomed and attended to.

A standout feature of my stay was the culinary delight crafted by chefs Sizwe and Boldun in the kitchen. The fantastic food showcased their culinary expertise, presenting a delightful fusion of flavors that added an extra layer of enjoyment to my stay.

Excellent lodging, rooms are exquisite with exceptional design cue( more bushy but very modern look). Breakfast and dinner are appetizing, there’s an element of delicacy and enjoyment with them. I recommend ground floor rooms as they contain the brilliant outside shower which works awesomely in the Lowveld warm weather .

The friendliest of receptions from the managers Magda and Llewellyn set the tone perfectly for this luxuriously eclectic home away from home. The design aspect of this lodge is it's most capturing element as the different types of furniture, materials, artworks and styles combined together really give your senses something new to experience every time you walk into a room. At first they seem confusing but unlike other random ensembles that most lodges do, you realise very quickly that all this mish mash of different styles has been carefully curated and arranged. It really is an ode to combining creativity and commerce.

The game drive was organised in good time . Thanks to Sandy from Crossroads Safaris for a game-drive of a lifetime.

The staff, especially Desmond, were extremely helpful. The were so attentive to my wife and I that they even surprised us with a romantic fireside table-for-two at dinner. Talk about reading the room!

Our room was really big, the bathroom was something out of a catalogue and you sleep like a log in those comfy beds.

Breakfast was scrumptious and very filling. At checkout, Llewellyn again surprised us with a little padkos goodie bag (fresh trailmix, water, muffins, fruits).

All in all a great experience. Loved the chats with the staff and owners, loved the food, loved the safari drive, loved everything. You'll also love their homemade rusks. You'll thank me later.

This small hotel is a wonderful mix of colour and calm. the colour is from the beautiful artworks and ceramics that are spread throughout the hotel's public rooms and the private bedrooms, and the calm from the charming staff and open plan interiors. the spaces flow easily from the reception to the dining room and then on to the terrace overlooking the pool. usually we go out to dinner but the quality of the food was so good we ate in on many nights. we were lucky enough to meet Nicola, the owner, with her effervescent
personality and warm friendly manner and this is clearly what shapes the ethos of the hotel. would definitely stay again if in the area. i was with my husband but given the friendliness and care of the staff i would be very happy staying here as a single traveller.

We booked 2 rooms last minute for the long weekend and were very happy with the rooms and the amazing service. The rooms are spacious and well appointed.
I booked a massage and the masseuse was very professional and flexible on time. Food was home cooked and full of flavor.

Safari Moon was the perfect place to spend our honeymoon! My husband and I loved the ability to do game drives in both private reserves and in Kruger, as well as the very convenient and peaceful location in the Hoedspruit Wildlife Estate! We chose not to rent a car and were so grateful that the town center was within walking distance! We were also completely spoiled during our stay; from the wonderful and warm staff, the delicious multi-course meals, and the beautiful and comfortable accommodations, we cannot say enough good things! Thank you, Safari Moon team!
