Excellent place to stay

We stayed two nights in the cottage which was clean and very spacious. Dave and Sam made us feel at home. The lodge is just 3 minutes from the entrance to Kruger Park.

EXCELLENT PLACE TO STAY!!!

We stayed with our family of 5 (children 2,3 and 7 yrs old) at the Sunbird Lodge for 3 nights. Large rooms and easy to access to the Kruger park (ca.1km). Dave and Sam who run the business are extremely helpful and provide a lot of good advice for places to go and things to see. Especially the boat trip on the river with on board dining was good. The lodge is also conveniently situated to visit Gods Window, Pilgrims rest etc. on a day trip or to or from Joburg like we did. We can absolutely recommend it to others.

Relaxing Stay

Great welcome, good accommodation, wonderful breakfast and all round relaxing stay for four Australians visiting South Africa.

Gael Tilbrook from Australia, 28 Aug 2007

Highly recommended

A very nice and convenient place to stay. Hosts were extremely helpful and went out of their way to assist us. Would highly recommend the Sunbird Lodge in Phalaborwa as the place to stay when visiting the north of Kruger National Park.

Fantastic

I booked the trip for my parents and they absolutely loved their stay. Sam and Dave were helpful and most important, friendly. The place is homey, according to my parents.
The booking experience was exceptional. I had prompt replies to all my questions, was given suggestions on everything I needed. My parents were arriving from Zimbabwe and Dave offered to pick them up from the bus-stop. I will be in SA in the next few weeks and I know where I'll be staying. Sunbird Lodge with Sam and Dave.

Very good

Being from Joburg I really enjoyed the fresh air and the traffic free roads, my stay was refreshing would go back anytime. The place is 5min drive from the Kruger Park which was/is the main attraction, I mean come on what more could one ask for.

It was very relaxing.

If you have experienced stress during the year, Sunbird lodge is the way to go. You can unwind listening to birds singing nice tunes. But all in all we enjoyed our stay, with a friendly service from Dave.

Everything at Sunbird was wonderful from staff, breakfast, rooms, pool, braai place etc.

The staff was always there for assistance.
I'm coming back soon...

Thank you for excellent service.

Great stay

My family and I had a great stay. The host and hostess were very friendly.

David Botha from South Africa, 09 Jan 2009

Awesome stay at Sunbird

My family and I were desperate to book into the Kruger Park in December, but because it was fully booked we were "forced" to look outside the park - Wow!!! Are we glad that happened, We absolutely loved our two nights at Sunbird, Dave was an amazing host and created such a relaxed atmosphere and overfed us at the amazing breakfasts that he provided for us. Nothing was too much for him and his staff during our brief stay and they met all our needs and more. We look forward to returning!!!

SUNBIRD LODGE

I have to say being in a town like Phalaborwa I had expected the worst as I did in a racist town of Musina a few years ago.I got a very nice wholehearted welcome with a smile.The surroundings there were just fabulous. i felt I could just extend my stay over there. I will definitely return there when I visit Phalaborwa, as this was not my last trip.
