3 Amazing Days with African Rock Lodge

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 28 Mar 2024
My spouse and I booked a 3-day package that included a full day safari into Kruger National Park. The accommodations were just as advertised, and we slept well. We were delighted with the delicious evening braai the first night, and we ended up enjoying the meal all three evenings of our stay. Sander, Juliet, and the staff were lovely; this is a very family-oriented place.
I walked around the neighborhood and to the nearby bird-blind, seeing lots of warthogs, nyala, and birds. It felt very peaceful. The full day Kruger excursion was amazing! We were very happy with the entire experience and would definitely book again when we come back to the area.

My friends and I spent 2 nights in African Rock Lodge either side of a week in Kruger. It’s the perfect place to base yourself and explore the sights surrounding Hoedspruit, or to bookend a stay in Kruger. Sander and the staff are super friendly and helpful, the nightly braai is delicious, and the rooms are spacious and beautifully decorated. I highly recommend, and I look forward to returning!

Everything from A to Z. The welcome from the owner was very warm, as was the rest of the staff. Everything was tip top clean and the breakfast buffet was rich, as was the evening barbecue. The owner couple took great care of the guests and fulfilled all their wishes Only 5 guest rooms and you feel like you are in a family. Comfort like in a 5 star hotel, even better.
Julie and Sander are a very warm and friendly owner coupe

There is nothing bad
