Puik.

Ons het baie lekker gebly. Die huis is goed toegerus en bied meer as wat mens op die foto's sien. Byvoorbeeld die braai-area. Verder het die huis 'n lekker vloei met 'n ongelooflike uitsig. Die swembad was ook 'n bederf.

Great.

We had a very nice stay. The house is well equipped and offers more than what you see in the photos. For example the braai area. Furthermore, the house has a nice flow with an incredible view. The pool was also a treat.

Benodig ernstige onderhoud en false inligting.

Mooi plek en is goed geleë. Mooi uitsig en baie wild. Plek het ernstige onderhoud nodig. Deurrame gebreek. Hoofslaapkamer se deur maak baie moeilik oop. Toiletsitplek in eksta kamer is gebreek. Helfte van die ligte werk nie of het nie eers gloeilampe in nie. Verder word hierdie eenheid bemark as deel van Mabalingwe Natuurreservaat. Dit is Cyferfontein en ons was toegang tot Mabalingwe geweier. Die wildvoertuig het ook amper geen remme nie.

Needs serious maintenance and fake information.

Nice place and is well located. Nice view and lots of wildlife. Place needs serious maintenance. Door frames broken. Master bedroom door is very difficult to open. Toilet seat in extra room is broken. Half the lights don't work or don't even have bulbs in them. Furthermore, this unit is marketed as part of Mabalingwe Nature Reserve. This is Cyferfontein and we were denied access to Mabalingwe. The game vehicle also has almost no brakes.

Baie goeie uitleg van die plek met aparte kamers van kombuis en eetkamer.

Toegerus met als wat mens nodig het. Heerlike verblyf met baie privaatheid.

Incredibly beautiful layout.

Breathtakingly beautiful! However, we experienced problems with the gas geysers not wanting to heat due to leakage from gas bottles. Problem was reported, someone was dispatched, but problem was still not resolved upon departure. Brought it to the contact person's attention again, but received no response back.

Onvoorwaardelik fantasties.

Die eenheid is net 100% reg vir familiewegbreek. Die kleinkinders het die swembad, speelkamer en natuurlik die wildsbokke terdeë geniet. Die Jeep het natuurlik 'n groot bydrae gelewer om Kalahari Oase en Mabalingwe-hoofkamp te kon besoek. Al klein probleempie van Des'Igodini Lodge - geen DStv vir manne as daar rugby is en in die aande as grootmense om vuurtjie sit om kinders besig te hou in huis as dit koud is. Bordspeletjies is daar vir groter kinders maar kinders wat nog klein is kan nie alleen in speelkamer op onderste vlak in die aand speel nie. Maar, die plek sal ons definitief weer sien.

Unconditionally fantastic.

The unit is just 100% ready for a family getaway. The grandchildren thoroughly enjoyed the pool, playroom and of course the antelopes. The Jeep obviously made a big contribution to being able to visit Kalahari Oase and Mabalingwe main camp. Little problem with Des'Igodini Lodge - no DStv for men when there is rugby and in the evenings when adults sit around the fire to keep children busy in the house when it is cold. Board games are there for older children but children who are still small cannot play alone in the lower level playroom in the evening. But, we will definitely see the place again.

A quiet, peaceful retreat with amazing bush views.

The lodge is situated in the Cyferfontein section of the park which is very peaceful and quiet. The rooms are large and airy. The deck and pool would be amazing in summer. The view is fantastic and looks onto the bush with no other lodges hindering your view. The house was well catered and there was nothing we wanted for. The beds in house two are small and I would only recommend them for children or really small adults. Birdlife is great and the lodge is visited by nyala and kudu on a daily basis. The game vehicle is a must when staying at the lodge. Indoor fireplace was lovely even though the lodge itself was very warm during the night and day. The pool table was also a nice added extra.
