Fabulous 4 star game lodge
Makalali River Lodges consists of 3 lodges with 6 beautifully appointed huts in each. Apart from the extremely comfortable, nicely sized accommodation with large inside and outside showers and all the necessary amenities including coffee machines, bar fridges, separate toilets and fire places, the service is friendly, attentive and the meals excellent. I have been twice in 3 months, the first time with family and two young grand children and the second time with couples. The game rangers and trackers are excellent Wiseman and Booi and Marvel and Siphiso made sure our game drives were interesting, did their best to accommodate our needs and went out of their way to make each game drive special! Makalali is great value for money, is run by a superb team of people and I will be back!
Great People, Great Lodge, Great Getaway
Had a wonderful 3 days at Makalali. We were spolit. Firstly, under the guidance of Wiseman and Rooi we enjoyed exciting game viewing adventures. Back at camp we relaxed in the wonderful rim flow pool and on the communal deck. The select menu delivered great food and we were well waited on by Branny, Kevin and Frans. The room were a great home for the few days. Definitely recommend
Best Getaway from busy life
A fantastic weekend away. A really good way of an escape from busy life for a couple days for some really good relaxing. The food and drinks were exceptional. The safaris were beautiful and the willingness of the guides to ensure we had the best experience was fantastic.
Makalali Private Game Reserve - always such a treat!
This was not our first visit to Makalali. We return for the excellent service, the amazing River Lodge rooms and facilities and the experience that these game rangers ensure is super special. We will be back!
Great Game viewing
Generally a good venue. Accomodation, game drives with great drivers and "spotters"and all other staff are very friendly and accommodating.Food was good ,however variety on salads and starters was limited including wine list. Overall service for meals and drinks in Boma was poor was poor and generally 30 minutes late for every meal. Choice of food also limited. Parking area and arrangements to Hotel is poor and really needs to be upgraded and checked out by management.
