Awesome spot near Greater Kruger & close to town. Maria's help was invaluable, rooms are spacious & clean, food delicious, no loadshedding, WiFi was fast. Gamedrive with Reinhardt was a highlight. Definitely returning for our next Safari!

We had a great stay with sightings of wildlife during breakfast. The room was the nicest we had during our two weeks trip. Hosting completely perfect, and the spontaneous game drive with Reinhardt was far the best we had! Thank you very much, we will come back

really liked staying here. Very comfortable, intimate. great service. The food was excellent. It is in a quiet location but near the airport. It was nice to take a walk around the estate after so much time in a vehicle.

We had a wonderful stay in beautiful Rafiki Bush Lodge! The Lodge is modern, beautiful and spotless. It has the feel of a very upmarket family home. Maria, Reinhardt and Lungsanne (sp?) made us so welcome, and little Mara provided the entertainment. The food was fantastic - I think we gained 3kg each during our 5 day stay! The pool was refreshing and very welcome on those 35C afternoons. The bush comes right up to the garden fence; the red-necked nightjar sang us to sleep each night. Nothing was too much trouble for these supreme hosts: Maria brought us into town for some shopping; Reinhardt drove us to a sports bar to watch a Rugby World Cup match. When a wedding anniversary was mentioned, champagne appeared; at the end of an early morning bush drive, we emerged into a clearing to find a splendid al fresco breakfast laid out for us! To cap it all, a huge giraffe strolled up the driveway to the lodge to wish us a perfect au revoir!

To begin with, Maria and Reinhardt made our whole group (6 women traveling together), feel like very privileged family. Ours rooms were perfect, and so very comfortable. I never wanted to get out of my wonderful outdoor shower! I apologize to everyone else, if I used up the hot water every time I got in! I'm not sure why anyone would complain about the food, but there was plenty of beautiful fresh local food for every meal. Maria and Lunghi cooked whatever was desired, or surprised us with very high quality meals at all times. The guided tours of the local reserve or of the Kruger National Park, were so very special, done expertly by Reinhardt. I can't thank the family enough for sharing their obvious love of the area.
