    Close to the airport and great access point from which to venture further afield - into Kruger NP, particularly if you have vehicle access. Sander and his wife and daughter (soon to add a son) were the most helpful and kind hosts a traveler could wish for.

    We enjoyed our stay at African Rock Lodge. The owner couples gave us great suggestions for local attractions, driving routes and restaurants. The camp fire and braai dinner at the lodge was very intimate and nice.

    Eine ausgezeichnete Unterkunft, wirklich viel Liebe zum Detail, tolle Zimmer mit perfekter Ausstattung, großartige Gastfreundschaft mit viel persönlichem Kontakt. Das Essen war sehr gut. Allergien (Zöliakie) wurden mit größter Sorgfalt berücksichtigt. Wenige Gehmeter entfernt kann man zu Fuß auf eine kleine Safari in den Busch gehen.

    Sehr netter Gastgeber, steht immer für Infos bereit und organisiert auch gerne eine Safari im Krügerpark. Das abendliche Barbecue ist sehr lecker und absolut empfehlenswert. In der direkten Umgebung können einige Tiere auf eigene Faust beobachtet werden. Insgesamt eine tolle Lodge mit einem guten Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis.
