We were very lucky to have the lodge to ourselves, it’s beautifully decorated & nothing is too much trouble. A mini bar & WiFi in the room would be nice as having to keep going to the main lodge was not ideal. Will definitely be returning to this beautiful place

Disappointing stay

The advertisement is misleading. The chalets are not in Mabalingwe and not part of Phumelelo lodge. They are in a small reserve with hardly any animals. A lot of the crockery items were not clean. The chalets is not suitable for a 6~sleeper. We only had a small bar fridge. The double bed is in the are which should be the living area. The gate to the reserve is not manned or locked so safety is a concern. We will definitely not be back. You can get better value for your money elsewhere.
