After having spent two night in the SANParks lodge at Satara in Kruger, this private lodge in Balule Game Reserve was quite a nice move up. Not that Satara was not fine, it is just in another league, and of course another price range. Nevertheless we felt very welcome at Greenfire Game Lodge and enjoyed our two nights there. The...

My wife and I had an exceptional time at the GreenFire game lodge at greater Kruger Park. I was a little unsure of what seemed like a lot of money to me but I spent the extra money for a safari lodge like this and have no regrets. The GreenFire lodge was especially amazing, my wife fell in love with...

The rooms were excellent, the food was very good and the service was the best I've ever seen. Very friendly and they take time to explain things. The Ferrari Safari was perfect, we saw buffalos, lions, elephants (in front of the lodge) a rhino, cheetha, zebras,... It was wonderful!!!

Absolutely loved this lodge. Staff were superb, friendly, welcoming and very helpful. The food was plenty and of a high standard. Having no wifi and tv makes it the perfect break to appreciate where you are. Isaaks game drives were very informative, successful and with his sense of humor and great stories, highly enjoyable. Was great to go for a...

From the moment you arrive at the airport and sadly have to leave, the friendly, five star service begins. Each and every staff member is to be congratulated! The rooms are amazing, ceiling to floor glass, modern, clean, private and with viewing decks. One slight drawback, no air con or heating but hey you are in the African bush. They...

The food is excellant. The tour guides answered all of our questions: plus, we were able to see 4 of the big 5. I will definitely come back to this location. I was a little apprehensive at first. I did not want to sleep in a traditional safari environment; however, the huts were enclosed with the ability to allow floor...
