Fantastic stay!
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 16 Feb 2024
5stars for everything! We´ve had the garden room wich is very spacious and beautiful. There´s an outdoor shower wich I loved to use in the morning. The Location is fantastic. When you enter the park you already see lots of animals and the animals also walk in the garden right outside the room. When we where swimming, A monkey jumped in the tree right next to the pool.
The staff is amazing! From the minute you arrive they make you feel welcome and relaxed.
Everybody is realy friendly and kind.
BIG THANK YOU to the hosts Patricia and Petunia for taking such good care off us!
We booked all of our game drives with Unembeza and they where the best!
We did the moringdrive from 5 till 9 at the local reserve wich was awesome to see so many animals and a beautifull sunrise.
We did an evening ride and picknick right next to the boutique where the guide had a lot of knowledge about the animals, trees, fruits and a lot more wich he was glad to share.
Then we booked a full day at kruger from 5 till 5 where we had the BEST driver! EMANUELN gave us one of the best days of our lives! Because of him we drove next to a walking lion (2meters) had an elephant walk right at our car after bathing in the mud, saw a whole family of lions and cubs,... I know you have to be lucky to see all this in one day but it was a combination of luck and great driving/kowledge on where to be at, and when you see animals know how to respond so you make it more special.
So again big thank you to Emanueln !
Glad to have booked with Unembeza!

We had an excellent stay at the Unembeza Lodge. They were all very kind and great service. The cherry on top of our stay was an 1-day Safari to Kruger National Park, with our guide Dave! I would highly recommend this safari, especially with Dave.

Best, Martijn

The lodge is located in a wildlife estate,hence you could enjoy views of wild animals there.
They upgraded me on a larger room for free and instead of a deluxe room in a separated villa, I slept in a garden room in the main lodge.
Impressive internal and external space, I loved the outdoor shower above all.
Food choice is limited (they are in a wildlife reserve, even if close to the city), but of good quality, especially the organic vegetables.
I stayed for one night only, but the lodge is worth a longer visit

Very pleasant to sit on the porch and watch warthogs and impalas pass by. The pool was excellent and very good for swimming. The room was very comfortable and we slept very well in the large bed. Very good breakfast and it was also possible to have dinner in the evening.

Everyone was very helpful and the service was great. It was clean, comfortable, and the food was excellent. They were also very accommodating with special dietary needs. We were even able to squeeze in a last minute booking at the spa, which was nice.

Unembeza was a wonderful stay in the Hoedspruit wildlife estate, very attentive and accomodating staff, the bikes to rent were a great add for an early morning ride through the estate. Food was exceptional and everything was homemade and fresh, from the granola to the bread! Do give a bit of extra time if you are planning a day trip as the wait for food can be a bit longer than usual.
