Local area description
We do a lot of camping and 4×4-ing through SA and have stayed in the Pilanesburg many times. Lodge 10 has to go down as our best stay in the Pilanesburg area by far and one of our best game farm visits of all time. The lodge was so comfortable. Great attention to detail in ensuring everything and anything that could be needed was easily available. The chalets were beautiful and cleverly designed to allow privacy yet have everyone close together. We really enjoyed the outdoor fire pit and swimming pool. The staff were beyond friendly and eager to assist. Our game ranger, Elsabe was awesome too, friendly, patient and had a fabulous sense of humour. Knowledgeable about the Bush too. We simply loved the game drives. Travel ground were professional and efficient making the booking a pleasure. Honestly can’t thank everyone involved for a very memorable weekend!
