Incredible Stay

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 2 Jan 2023via mobile
This was our family’s first trip to South Africa. The staff and facilities at Phelwana were outstanding and consistently went over and beyond in helping us plan side trips to Kruger National Park and the Panorama. The food was first rate and the chef was very helpful and interactive in accommodating a family member’s food allergy. The rooms/villas were spacious, clean and well maintained. We would not hesitate to recommend the Phelwana and will stay there on our next visit.

We were recently blessed to stay at the wonderful Phelwana Game Lodge. We had the most wonderful, relaxing, rejuvenating 3 day break in the bush. Bliss. The wildlife, the staff, the setting, the hospitality, the beautiful rooms and plunge pools, the delicious food. All amazing! We will be back

The staff was welcoming and amazing, just consider a curtain on the sliding door to the outside shower. The facility itself is out of this world and very beautiful, I would stay there again the next time I'm in Hoedspruit.

We were already for the second time at Phelwhana Game Lodge - and our stay was just PERFECT!
Best service, delicious food and such friendly people. The included Big5 and Gamedrive makes it even better - we come again.

The luxury tents are very comfortable and the private pool at you unit is a great touch. It was so lovely to be amongst the animals even whilst at your deck or eating meals and watching the dam. The staff were very friendly and went to every effort to make sure we were well taken care of! Would highly recommend booking the Big 5 Safari!

The accommodation was excellent, the service was first class and the food was delicious. We were treated like royalty by the friendly staff members. We thoroughly enjoyed the early morning bush walk and the afternoon big 5 game drive. We could also view game, like giraffes, nyalas and warthogs from our front deck. We'll stay longer next time!
