The chalets are spacious and well maintained and well equipped. The resort itself is well maintained. As we traveled into the Kruger Park each day we did not see much of the resort, left before sunrise and came back after sunset. The restaurant is a bit of a let down.

We stayed at Hippo Bend for a week - chalet was very clean and was extremely well equipped. Excellent quality kitchen equipment including a dishwasher. The resort is very well maintained and run, it is an absolute pleasure spending time there. Staff extremely efficient from reception, cleaners, maintenance, gardeners and security. We can't wait to return. Absolutely loved it! Well...

Our yearly stunning get away, which we will visit yearly, until we can't no more. Sitting on our unit balcony, which overlooks the Crocodile River, we have seen four of the big five wild game every year since 2013. The lodge is situated 10 km from the Kruger National Park (entry Crocodile Bridge) thus being able to visit the park...

We have over the past 4 years spent about nine weeks in total at Ngwenya. The family wants to go nowhere else! Although we naturally prefer the Riverview units we are just as pleased with the Bush and Pond units. Where else can you see a herd of 91 elephants from your patio! They come right up to the low-slung...

A lovely setting by the river so you don't have to go into the park all the time. The accommodation is really comfortable and the unit is well equipped. The only negative comment is that you have to pay for Wifi and you have to go to the Internet cafe to use it. Should be free and easily available in...

This is a lovely place with helpful staff situated right on the crocodile river looking into kruger park. Its only 10km from croc gate to enter kruger. Its spacious neat and well maintained. Units are much like any other decent timeshare type unit. Tip: make sure your unit has a river view which should be the whole point of going...

If you like peace and tranquility while on holiday and love the bush as well, then Ngwenya Lodge is the place to go for sure - you can even own your own holiday home there or just a week per year if you wish, but once you been you will keep going back. Well done Ngwenya - Keep it up...

The perfect holiday! Africa at its best - relaxing and wonderful sightings of animals from the lodge. Chalets are spotless, well equipped and home away from home. Staff friendly and helpful. The shop is adequately stocked with basics but Komatipoort is 10 minutes away with all the shops you need. Happily stay for at least 7 days to totally unwind....

Great resort, with river front units(which you should definitely try book). Resort is great for family get away, close to the Kruger Park, if you want to go there. Sitting on the deck of the restaurant or walking to the other viewing hides on the river, you see a lot of animals from the Park. Shop with necessities, salon, swimming...

A mouth watering experience for bush lovers! No need to enter the park as so many if the animals come to drink from the crocodile river! Amenities way above average with an amazing setting ... such beauty!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Ngwenya Lodge is situated on the southern tip of the world-renowned Kruger National Park. This means that visitors don’t even have to leave the resort to see a huge variety of game species – including the famous Big Five. The river view chalets overlook a scenic floodplain, which allows for magnificent views of the area where the big cats often hunt. Our Dam and Bush view chalets are set back on the property and also have beautiful views, as they overlook tranquil dams or bush areas. Game viewing hides make game viewing on the riverfront accessible to all – so no one misses out on spotting any of their favorite wild animals. Holiday in the luxury you’re used to… The units have fully equipped kitchens with a stove, fridge, freezer and a microwave. Each unit has a television and an undercover veranda with patio table, chairs and a braai, for unforgettable get-togethers with family and friends. Ngwenya’s on-site facilities include a pub, a beauty salon with a wide range of treatments, a curio shop, a small convenience shop, 6 outdoor swimming pools, 18 hole Mini Golf course, 2 tennis courts, trampolines, jungle gyms, a games room with pool tables, table tennis, Playstations with Xbox Kinnect, a kiddies room with various board games, puzzles, and kids movies.We can’t wait for you to visit us. ... more   less
