Pros: The location of the property was amazing. Loved watching the wildlife at the watering hole in front of the property. If you want a non commercial rustic experience in the middle of a reserve feeling part of nature then this is a must. Mike and Laura were excellent hosts and Lynette our guide was enthusiastic with nothing being too much trouble. We were lucky to see 2 very different lion sightings and we saw a leopard just outside muweti crossing the road!! Loved watching the zebra and elephants from the property. Food was excellent. Would recommend whole heartedly

10.0 Excellent
Pros: This place was a wonderful surprise - I didnt know what to expect but the setting was amazing, with the view out towards the Drakensberg from the pool, and the wildlife coming in to the waterhole. Plus Divya and Bjorn were the most engaging and impressive hosts. I would recommend this over more expensive places. Food was wonderful too. Other guests saw a leopard and cub several times while I was there (of course I missed them....)
Cons: There were no negatives at all - I would recommend this place over much more expensive places in other private reserves around Kruger.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Right in the bush!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Everything was literally perfect. We had no idea which part of Kruger is good for staying as the area is huge and there are so many options, so we chose this one purely based on its reviews and it was the best decision we made for our trip in SA. SA was amazing but we hadn’t thought that we’d come back until we arrived in Mbizi Bush Lodge. The couple running the lodge was very nice and as the only guests in the lodge (we were very lucky) we could spend some time with the them and learn more about Kruger. They are so knowledgeable about the park and truly enjoying what they do. The game drive we did with Bjorn was amazing. We learnt so much about safari and were impressed about how much he cares about the animals. The room was very nicely decorated and the view from the pool was absolutely stunning. Every single meal we had was very delicious and Divya never failed to impress us with her recipe. We only stayed there for 3 nights so obviously spent most of our time in Kruger but if you read this, don’t make the same mistake we did. The lodge itself is as charming as Kruger. We wished we spent more time just relaxing by the pool and enjoying our amazing food. We can’t wait to come back soon!
Cons: Wished we had more time
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Excellent all round. Fence-less lodge gave a great experience. Food was excellent.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: This lodge was an extraordinary experience. You are in the middle of a private game reserve, wild animals walk by at the waterhole or your room but it still feels safe with such great hosts as Divya and Björn. She is a fantastic kitchen chef, 3 weeks in south africa and she served the best meal we had so far, Björn gives you a safe feeling and gives tons of infos during an amazing game drive. Besides that it's clean and beautiful. Will definitely come back again one day!
Cons: Nothing
10.0 Excellent
Pros: If you are looking for a beautiful location in the middle of the Bush with warm hosts, delicious food and adventurous game drives with a knowledgable and passionate guide, then Mbizi Bush Lodge is the perfect place for you! You immediately feel the positive energy and can feel the lifeblood, the Divja and Bjorn are stuck in the lodge everywhere feel. The food was super creative, fresh and delicious. Also very recommendable for vegetarians! The rooms are lovingly furnished and very clean. The Game Drives with Bjorn gave us a better understanding about the fascinating nature and the different animals. No matter if elephant herds, lions or leopards at night, Bjorn always gave us a safe feeling and always treated nature and animals respectfully! We had an unforgettable time in the Bush and would like to thank Divja, Bjorn and the whole Mbizi Crew!
9.6 Excellent
Pros: You just get THE experience: No fence between you and some of the most beautiful animals. It can happen that a herd of buffallos storms the water whole of the accomadation just on your arrival so that you need to wait to get to the car and the luggage. You can spot lots of animals just from the terrace in front of the water whole of the accomodation - we were lucky seeing zebras, elefants and as already written buffallos - but those even twice. Bjorn does such great game drives with lots of background information on the animals and the park. Dyvia makes the place feel like home. :) She is such an excellent cook - every meal is an experience. You can just feel that both of them love what they do and want to share it with their guests. Thanks for this wonderful stay - you have such a beautiful place! We honestly can recommend the Mbizi Lodge to everyone! And if you want to experience the Kruger NP as well both of them are More than helpful to provide a Tour- they even encourage to do so to get the most out of your trip...
Cons: There was nothing to complain about.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Divya and Bjorn are really passionate in everything they offer. The food was fantastic and we really enjoyed the adventurous and informative game drives as well as the relaxing day by the pool. If you search for a unique experience in the bush, stay at Mbizi Lodge!

If you are looking for a convenient place to stay for an early entry to the Kruger National Park through the Phalaborwa Gate, La Lechere is an excellent choice. Isabella makes you very welcome, all the staff are excellent and we could not fault La Lechere.
Cons: Nothing
8.8 Excellent
Pros: The owners are very good hosts. We've arrived late at la Lechere and had a warm welcome. To our surprise Jan was willing to order pizza's for us from a restaurant in town, so we could relax and have a glas of wine after a long ride. The 2nd night Jan suggested to bring us to a very nice restaurant near Kruger gate. He even picked us up after dinner. Very hospital and ofcourse appreciated by us! The last night of our stay we've had a very nice dinner prepared by the hosts at La Lechere....excellent! Accompanied with very nice wines. Distance to the entrance of Phalaborwa gate is appr. 10 minutes and this is a very remote area in Kruger compared to (f.e. )the Kruger gate. We have seen lots of wildlife. We can recommend La Lechere without any doubt. A lovely accommodation with very friendly and hospital owners, who do anything to make you feel comfortable and relaxed.
Cons: nothing to mention

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Driving up to the lodge was like going on a private safari, and the accommodation had a resort vibe. We had a warm welcome from the friendly staff on arrival with a drink on the deck. It was such a treat to sit in a beautiful spot and have the animals come to the waterhole to drink right in front of us! We saw elephants, zebra, impala, hyena, and a wild dog in the space of one afternoon! Fantastic photo opportunity! Highly recommended for a unique experience of Africa.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: The staff were extremely welcoming, friendly and obliging. Common areas were beautiful, comfortable and relaxing with great views and great sightings at the waterhole. 'Happy', the game ranger absolutely enthusiastic, friendly & knowledgeable tracking down that lion outside the lodge on the last night was such a highlight. Such an awesome experience.
Cons: Casart is a beautiful lodge, however Pumba (our lodge) could do with an upgrade of linen. Also, whilst meals are prepared with great care and are tasty, they're quite expensive for options offered. However it should be noted that staff were quite obliging to offer alternates when time permitted.

The safari tours with Happy are very professional, so we could see a lot of animals including lions and elephants. In general a fair price for what they offer.
Cons: Nothing
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The staff were very attentive and service was very personalised. The dinner that we had added on was great. We had springbok carpaccio and it totally exceeded my expectations. My husband enjoyed the chicken chutney very much as well. The view from the deck looks out to a watering hole and if you were lucky, you could see animals coming to drink water. We also booked a private game drive with the lodge and our guide, Happy, was fantastic. He is extremely knowledgeable about the bush, very friendly and personable, has a great eye for wildlife and immense passion for whatever he's doing as well. Even though the game drive was a little pricey, it was worth every cent. Our stay there was very enjoyable and great thanks to the other staff Moses, Yann, and Stanford too!
Cons: Nothing to do with the lodge but a tip to would-be visiting drivers - rent a SUV and/or a 4WD as the road in is rather rocky and unpleasant to drive on in a regular sedan.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Super friendly staf! Ranger Happy knew a lot about the nature, animals and birds. And we were suprised with a free upgrade to the rondavel with jacuzzi. We would definitely come again. Thanks Sonia, Mozes, Stageman, Stanford, Happy and all other staf members.

Cons: The fact that there is no tv.

5.4 Okay
Pros: Request for double bed honoured. Beautiful lights. Lovely furniture
Cons: Staff incompetence and unfriendliness. Staff not professional at all. The receptionist was rude and she did not have our bookings ready eventhough bookings.com confirmed the payment. The receptionist became defensive upon us asking her to enquire from her Manager. She did not even offer an apology after realising that she didn't do her job in checking our bookings confirmation. The lady at the bar was unfriendly, cold unprofessional and worse she spoke to us in her own language (Tsonga) eventhough we dont speak Tsonga. We found this very rude. Our bookings for the evening game drive safari was lost by the receptionist. They wanted us to complete another booking for the evening safari and when we came back, they failed to organise the safari braai like we booked. This really upset my partner and I as we felt that we were not offered the professional service we paid for. We are not happy with the Sefapane staff at all
