We upgraded from the Kalahari room but the double bed was very uncomfortable, so we downgraded to two single beds. We would have preferred an English breakfast.
Dave & Monica were hospitable and very helpful. The view of the Mountains were beautiful and we had a very relaxing 3 day stay.

I wish I could stay more than only one night!
The location is perfect for people like us who looked for a remote place to enjoy the nature. The cottage is very cosy, the hosts are extremely friendly and welcoming!

To be honest: nothing; it was just perfect
Monika and Dave are lovely people and they wil do every thing for you. We were staying there for 3 nights; thus much too short. The nearby Markele Park is very beatifull and a must to visit. The breakfast is very good and the dinner is excellent. Monika's meals are fantastic!! Monika and Dave: THANK YOU

That we had to leave again!
Everything....it was our second visit and there will definitely be a third. The view from the cottage is fantastic and Dave and Monika make you feel at home. Spend a day at Pilanesberg with Dave and we loved it. And to come 'home' to Monika's cooking after a long day of wildlife spotting is the best you can get!

Quite a long way from town and could be difficult to find in dark
Friendly owners. Nice evening meal, reasonably priced wine. Baboons in the mountain area behind property - but not on property itself.

Had such a lovely stay! Monika and Dave were excellent hosts and the rooms were great. No TV in the rooms (hard drive of downloads to browse through though), but actually had no issue with this as we got to spend more time together! Will definitely be going again =)

Personalised high quality service and attention to detail of a boutique hotel at budget prices. Very knowledgeable about fauna and flora.

Exceptional hosts who went out of their way to make us feel at home. They made clear the fact that they had dogs and were not set up for children before we went, which was fine for us but should be considered by those considering going there.

Very hospitable and friendly owners. The relationship was quickly that of friendship rather than client / service provider. We had a very relaxed and enjoyable weekend away at Marula Lodge.
