Everything was perfect and we enjoyed every second. The moment you enter through the doors they make you feel so welcome. It was not our first stay and it will not be our last. Perfect location to relax, to enjoy the great view from the whole lodge. The rooms are very comfortable, quite and all have very nice views. You...

Still Lalapanzi Lodge is within easy reach of wonderful restaurants, wineries and all important top spots. Thouroughly recommendable and we look forward to return...

The staff is very nice. Breakfast has a good choice. Table d'hôte is good. We were just frustrated not to stay longer. Not easy to find...

Stayed at Lalapanzi for a long weekend. The lodge is situated on a fantastic serene spot on a beautiful estate, the rooms are fully equipped and very large (we had a fireplace and our own terrace) and the staff is incredibly welcoming. We loved staying at Lalapanzi, and swimming in the dam or pool is lovely. The estate has a...

Our family recently spent three weeks at one of the private lodges Phezula and we honestly could not have chosen a better place at which to stay. Thank you Lalapanzi, especially Rose and Marie Helene for making our trip so magical and memorable.

Enjoyed two nights at the Lodge. They welcomed us with a nice dinner after a long day of sight seeing. Breakfast was nice with hot and cold options. Good locations to the wine region. The loft on inside the lodge would be nice for a family that wants to spread out.

This is the ideal place to disconnect and relax. Close enough to grab a meal nearby and far enough to not have any disturbances. Recommend it to anyone that just needs to get away. We will effeminately be returning.
