At 7 Star Lodges we've redefined the meaning of "safari" and invite you to get away from it all in our unique, ultra-luxury, private destination that evokes and embodies the spirit of Africa. This is where the journey of a lifetime awaits, where the art of travel transcends ordinary and becomes extraordinary. Named for the major stars of the Southern Cross and its "pointer" stars, Alpha and Beta Centauri, 7 Star Lodges has been created and lovingly curated to afford each guest the opportunity to enjoy an alternative to the traditional African cookie-cutter safari offering. Each day is unscripted, allowing maximum flexibility when it comes to relaxing and experiencing Africa. From midnight picnics in the wild to hot air ballooning to sleeping out under the stars. You set the pace, and we make sure every step is complemented by exceptional attention to detail, consummate service levels and singular style. Wake when you want to, dine when you're hungry, explore when adventure beckons.

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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We stayed for three nights in the Chesterfield suite. The suite is beautiful and our butler Happiness made our stay unforgettable. At the 7star lodges, the game drive guide Fanny can tell you everything about the animals. Great experience!

Hotel's Favourite
We have been on holiday several times a year, all over the world, for decades. We have been to South Africa 4 times. Not once have any of those holidays come close to our experience at Oase by 7 Star Lodges. They were superb with suggesting, planning and managing an itinerary tailored to us. We spent 2 weeks in the Bradberry suite. We loved the pool, the outside shower and bath, the frosty Aircon, great WiFi and the very comfortable bed. We soon acclimatised and got in to a routine of early light breakfast in the room, a morning of activities before it got too hot, brunch followed by swim/sleep/relax. The days finished off with an evening meal and maybe a night safari. All the time a butler and guide were on hand for our every need and all our stupid questions. We were chauffeured everywhere, including to the activities, most of which were private to us. Just some of the activities we did and can highly recommend are *Night safari *Early morning game drives *Blyde Canyon helicopter flight *Quad safari *Tree top sleep out *The superb cinema *Kruger private safari with tracker, guide and butler/chef *Tracking on foot In the time we stayed we managed to spot 110 different animals including the Big 5, Little 5 and some other very rare ones, like a day old elephant swimming in Kruger. We've had no issues with spiders, snakes or feeling unsafe. Their attention to detail is OCD level. Nothing is too much trouble and they really make you feel special. We will be back, regularly! This is THE way to do Safari, don't even think about DIY or packages, you will just be wasting time and money. Tell them your budget and they will come up with a holiday of a lifetime for you.

We did a road trip to SA, the last week we decided to spend here, I asked Dave to just plan it for us with Daily excursions. What an experience it has been, food & people first class. You can literally switch off from the whole world, but rest assured you do have good WIFI should you need it.

We were here for our honeymoon and everything was absolutely amazing. Octavia was an excelent butler and everyone went above and beyond to make us feel welcomed and help us with problems that went beyond the scope of our traveling. We would totally recommend!

We had an incredible stay at the lodge. Njabulo made our stay extra special with all the activities and dinners that he planned for us. We will miss him so much! Overall service was also 10/10! The food was amazing and loved the fact that we had different options at every meal. Our room (Chesterfield suite) was completely surrounded by the bush and we had a private pool to cool off in during the day. Highly recommend! We will definitely be back soon.

Njabulo, our server for the week, made our stay very memorable and special. The food was also amazing and consisted of wide varieties. We stayed in the Chester suite and the pool was exactly what we needed to cool down from the heat. I would definitely recommend staying at the treetop for one night, it was a beautiful view where the stars lit up the bushveld. Perfect for escaping the city life!

We stayed 5 nights at the Oase by 7 Star Lodge in March 2024. In the Bradberry room. The place is magical from the moment they picked us up at the airport. Worried about even the smallest detail to make our stay perfect. Our butler Njabulo made sure we had a unique stay, we never had lunch or dinner in the same place in the lodge, always concerned that we were enjoying our stay. Njabulo organized dinners for us in the Bush, Brunch on the river, lunch in different places. Perfect place to stay every day the chef prepares a new menu with different options. We would stay at this lodge again without thinking about it.

It was the best hotel experience I’ve had in a long time. Our butler Njabulo was the kindest man, organising the prettiest different lunch and dinner spots for us. The game drives in the reserve nearby were amazing too and we saw so many different animals. The hotel ground is so pretty and we loved our own villa with private pool and bathtub, it was really a dream - thank you!!

Oase has created a unique offering, perfect for travellers who want to combine their safari with other experiences. It has a private resort feel where the team will create a bespoke plan tailored to you / your family’s requirements. - Accommodation is excellent with high quality feel and no compromises even though its solar powered and in the bush - Facilties include private pool and air conditioned cinema and there are a number of activities that can be arranged eg fishing, gin tasting, cooking classes. - Food is superb and multiple dining locations were set up for us so that we could experience the whole property (especially enjoyed dinner at the treetop under the stars, dinner by the river and the many open fire braes) - Service is exceptional. The team are friendly and really want you to have a great time. Great attention to detail and very responsive to adhoc requests. Perfect if you want some downtime from what can be quite tiring (especially with kids) safari trips. Well done Dave, Audra and your talented team.
