    Luxury in the Bush

    A remarkable find very close to the Kruger National Park, run by a lovely Danish couple with tremendous attention to detail. Everything was immaculate. Excellent service. Just an amazing experience. Cross animals (water buck, impala, lots of birds) just on my 3km drive in to find the lodge which is situated on a private game reserve (Grietjie). This operates as a collective of 100 members who undertake serious efforts for conservation, while providing a livelihood for the community.

    Just book it!!

    WOW! What a fantastic experience. This is a small slice of Paradise in the African bush near Kruger National Park. The setting is absolutely perfect and there are only 4 chalets so it is exceptionally exclusive and very special. Mette & Michael were fantastic hosts, always available if you needed, always happy to take you out on a Game drive (we saw a huge amount of wild life VERY up close and personal - there was an elephant drinking from the swimming pool one day!! - and one evening we were invited for a quick drive around the grounds as some very rare African Wild Dogs had been spotted - Michael managed to find them ..... just as the sun was setting! What really made this place special was the food! Wow!! It is absolutely world class and we adored the little 'African' twists every night at dinner. The Impala Steaks with a tomato relish and the Chocolate and Amarula mousse were one of the highlights of the holiday!! Mbizi lodge offers a true African experience at exceptional value for money

    Tolle autenthische Lodge

    Es war sehr schön. Kaum waren wir angekommen, kamen auch schon Elefanten um aus dem Pool zu trinken. Es war ein sehr beeindruckendes Erlebnis. Das Bungalow war sehr schön eingerichtet und di Inhaber standen stets mit Rat und Tat zur Seite. Ich würde jederzeit wieder die Mbizi Lodge buchen.

    The Mbizi lodge is one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been so far! The hosts and all the employees are very heartily all the time. The breakfast and the dinner were every day a highlight. (Delicious and varied) A game drive with bjoern is a must do to !! You can do it in the morning or in the late evening.. You will see lions elephants giraffes and lot more Animals! Bjoern is a trained ranger and knows everything about the animals and the nature. It was a great experience and we will definitely do this again! Thanks bjoern and his beautiful wife for this unbelievable adventure! Cheers Domi and Dennis

    Sehr gutes Essen

    hervorragende Unterkunft mit sehr guter Küche. Leider waren im direkten Umfeld der Lodge kaum Tiere. Scheint nach den Berichten aber zufällig so zu sein. er Park ist halt groß und die Tiere sind nicht immer am gleichen Ort. Im Park selber haben wir dann viele Elefanten und Giraffen gesehen. Saubere und geräumige Hütten.

    Mal was ganz anderes

    Man wohnt direkt zwischen den Tieren. Es ist der Wahnsinn wenn man beim Frühstück die Giraffen beim Trinken beobachten kann. Sehr nette Inhaber die ein super Frühstück und Dinner servieren. Der Weg zur Lodge ist etwas schlecht ausgeschildert und die Starße ist nicht asphaltiert...
