We stayed three nights at Maqueda, and were genuinely sad to leave at day 4... The lodge's open air living room is worth the visit by itself (watching bush babies and genets watching you during and after dinner), and that's just the beginning: Maqueda/Marloth Park is well located, a great home base for visits to Kruger NP, Swaziland and Maputo/Mozambique....

Etienne is a brilliant chef, serving us 3 course meals every night of some of the most delicious food cooked to perfection. Francios was...

This was the best start to our holiday that we could have hoped for. Francois, Etienne and the staff made us feel like we were staying with old friends. Our very need and want was attended to. With only a small number of rooms and such personal service I would love to come back for my honeymoon. The accommodation was...

You need to experience this. The place is family run and everything is being taken care of in a lovely manner. This makes it very unique and the perfect location for a relaxed stay at Kruger Park. The food is amazing and Etienne, the cook, should be listed in Guide Michelin. The overall athmosphere in the lodge is great, the...

We loved our stay at Maqueda Lodge. Francois and his family and staff made us feel so welcome. The food was amazing, we felt so comfortable and at home and would highly recommend Maqueda Lodge to anyone travelling to Kruger. Make sure you allow a day to spend at the day spa, it is beautiful and very good value.

From the lovely welcome from Francois to our suppers being prepared by 'Mum' every aspect was executed superbly.We were the only guests for the 2 nights so...

Maqueda is a luxurious lodge in a beautiful bush setting and our room was typical of a 5-star hotel. Etienne and his father Geritz (sp?) were very welcoming and always helpful. Great to have such a family hosting us. The food was superb and it was great to sit at one table. The pre-dinner fireplace is a great idea to...
