PLEASE DONT VISIT!!!!!
Worst place ever!!! Guests were drunk and allowed next to the pool…we could not relax in nature!!!! Kids could not even swim because of them. Then the drunk guests attend lunch in inappropriate swimwear . And the lodge admit it was frowned upon. Then the same guests complain they hear our footsteps …. They were staying at the lower level… we were on level 1. We were harassed by management…. My parents are 71… my sister was in bed… her daughter as well…. Husband in shower. I was also in bed when it happened. The same guests went on a game drive with sequined dresses😂But we were the pigs… by management!!
A Magical Honeymoon Destination
Makalali made my wife and myself’s honeymoon trip truly special. They really went the extra mile to make our honeymoon one of a kind, with romantic private dinners, romantic room turn downs, free champagne, the list goes on. On top of this, the service was second to non, the food was amazing as well as the accommodation with special wildlife interactions abounding as the wildlife is free to roam around the accommodation complex. We also had truly amazing game drives over our stay, we saw all of the Big Five and countless other wildlife up close like I’ve never seen them before. This was thanks to our top class guides Louis and Roy, who went the extra mile every day to track down exactly what we wanted to see. I cant wait to stay at Makalali again!
A MAGNIFICENT EXPERIENCE
I was the lucky winner of 2 nights at this magnificent lodge which was run by the Saturday Star Travel Section. It was way above our expectations - from the moment of our arrival until our departure we only had a fabulous time. Hopefully we will be able to return for another stay in the not too distant future.
Great stay at the bush
Rooms were nice and clean. Bed was very comfortable and huge. Game drives were fun and knowledgeable thanks to Marvin who made sure that we see the big 4 Food was very average especially breakfast which lacked variety . i think it was Covid circumstances. For a chillies lover, the establishment did not have even tobasco. I however give the staff 5 stars for the service that was provided under the difficult circumstances. Loved the picnic suprise that was done for me and my husband.
We had a wonderful 6 nights here. The game drives were a bit chilly to start with in the morning and later in the afternoon but blankets were provided. Our Tracker, Ellias, and our Ranger, Marvel, were very knowledgeable and pleasant and obliging. We stayed at the new lodge which was very comfortable. The food was excellent and the staff very pleasant and helpful. The pool area is beautiful and I would imagine very nice to use in summer. The boma at night with the fires was so nice and you coukd hear animal sounds. The travelling masseurs were super. We had a most enjoyable time and got to see nearly everything, just the leopard and the wild dogs stsyed hidden.
