Tweede agtereenvolgende jaar dat ons Awelani besoek. Uitstekende ligging en uiters netjiese verblyf. Die plaaslike inwoners baat by die fasiliteite.

Rustig en ontspannend.

Dit is 'n baie rustige plekkie waar mens kan ontspan. Die bestuur en skoonmakers wat daar is is baie vriendelik. Dit was gerieflik omrede dit 11 km vanaf die Pafuri-hek by Kruger National Park is.

Perfekte wegbreek

Awelanie Lodge is die perfekte wegbreek vir enige iemand, selfs vir gesinne met klein kinders. Dit is ongelooflik veilig, die huisies is kindervriendelik asook die dele buite die huisies. Die swembad is lekker naby, met sagte groen gras. Die staproetes is baie lekker, en daar is baie om van te kies. Die diere en voëls is ook ongelooflik - die Mongoose het ons in die huis kom besoek en my dogtertjie was gek daarna!

Perfect getaway

Awelanie Lodge is the perfect getaway for anyone, even families with small children. It is incredibly safe, the cottages are child-friendly as well as the parts outside the cottages. The swimming pool is nice and close, with soft green grass. The hiking trails are very nice, and there are many to choose from. The animals and birds are also amazing - the Mongoose came to visit us in the house and my little girl loved it!

Ons het by Awelani oornag voordat ons vroeg die volgende oggend by Pafuri hek ingegaan het om die noordleike deel van die Wildtuin te besoek.

Die Lodge was baie leeg vanweë die Covid-pandemie. Die sjef het spesiaal ingekom om vir ons aandete te maak. Die rondawel was goed toegerus, gerieflik en skoon. Ons het heerlik gestap na die rotstekeninge (5 km heen en weer). Baie goeie diens, heerlik gesmul aan 'n basiese, baie billike aandete in die restaurant.

We spent the night at Awelani before entering Pafuri gate early the next morning to visit the northern part of the Wildlife Park.

The Lodge was very empty due to the Covid pandemic. The chef came in specially to make us dinner. The rondavel was well equipped, comfortable and clean. We had a lovely walk to the petroglyphs (5 km round trip). Very good service, deliciously indulged in a basic, very reasonable dinner in the restaurant.

I did enjoy the stay and was surprised how good the place looks.

My first time, did not know what to expect and would go back there and now that I know what they have on the site my planning will be better. Could not use the restaurant for we did not know that they do not have card facilities there but can now plan. Nice place to enter the Northern Kruger Park. Also good for self catering. Staff is very helpful and friendly even starting at the main gate. Would suggest that the owner must just install cell phone booster to cover the whole camp with signal.

Wonderful, restful beautiful place.

We stayed in a safari tent on 17 August 2018. Only suggestion was a bathroom mirror for shaving! We returned to a bungalow with our grown-up son on 19 August, more old fashioned accommodation, but very clean and to be recommended.

Perfect start to our Kruger trip.

A stunning setting with boabab trees and cliffs, our hosts made us feel very welcome and at home, dinner was a lovely braai out on the patio, we enjoyed stayed staying in the safari tents which were nestled in the bush. Breakfast was excellent and we enjoyed walking to see the cave paintings. We will definitely be back and bring our mountain bikes next time.

Hou verby.

Ongelooflik duur vir wat 'n mens kry. Om tafel te dek in die chalet moet jy als uitdra. Dit het gereën nadat ons die braaivuur aangesteek het - daar is geen beskutting nie. Die sogenaamde braai-area is ook net 'n stuk ongelyke grond. Leë ysbakkies in die vrieskas. Personeel het gewissel van norse man tot giggelende vrou.

Stop by.

Incredibly expensive for what you get. To set the table in the chalet you have to carry everything out. It rained after we lit the barbecue - there is no shelter. The so-called braai area is also just a piece of uneven ground. Empty ice trays in the freezer. Staff varied from surly man to giggling woman.
