"Rooms are ok but noisy because they are attached to each other. Food was so so, we had a braai and the meat was overcooked. For the price of the meal you can eat twice a bit further up the road at Tanks bush pub, they have really good meals. This is certainlynot a 4 star place."

"I had an older but cheaper room. It had everything that I needed. I left at 5.15am every morning to the Kruger Park and only came back at 6.30pm. I had dinner every night at the Gecko Lodge at 7pm and went to bed after. The food was good but the best was the very personal treatment. Staff was very attentive too. Would certainly recommend this to a friend without hesitation."
