Location very good, but the place needs a lot of repairs.

I’m not a person who usually complains about things but this place should be removed so that the next person that books is not misled by nice pictures of this holiday home in any way.

Die huis het baie aandag nodig.

Die huis se uitleg is baie onprakties. Jy moet deur 'n kamer gaan om buite by die kuier area te kom. Die persone wat bo op die loft slaap, moes badkamers deel wat in die kamers onder is. Daar het geen diere gekom nie, ten spyte van kos wat ons vir hulle gekoop het.

The house needs a lot of attention.

The house's layout is very impractical. You have to go through a room to get outside to the hangout area. The persons sleeping upstairs in the loft had to share bathrooms which are in the rooms below. No animals came, despite food we bought for them.

There are two full bathrooms in the house and one in the entertainment area. I really do not have any control over whether the animals come around or not. We were there last week and we had a whole dazzle of zebras visit. The giraffes came right into the yard and the mongoose were all over the yard. I cannot even count how many warthogs and impala visited. It's a game reserve and not a zoo.

Thank you very much for your review, Koos. We're glad that you enjoyed your stay. If I could please ask you to send me a list of the maintenance issues that you found. We arrive in South Africa next week and I would like to know so that I can have everything fixed while we’re there. Keep well and thanks again for your feedback.

Ons het lekker gebly. Ongelukkig oor geen krag en geen terugvoer.

Baie netjies. Kliëntediens kan verbeter van die lodge se kant af. Ons het die hele aand sonder krag gesit. Het die eienaar gebel, maar niemand was uitgestuur om te kom kyk nie.

Hi Elsie, thank you very much for the review. We understand that there was no electricity, but with load shedding and all the electricity issues that are being experienced throughout South Africa at the moment, it was out of our control. Even if we could get an electrician out in the middle of the night when you contacted me, there was nothing they could do. The electricity did come back on in the early hours of the morning.

Kyk asb. na die hoofslaapkamer se stort en toilet, en die ligte kan nie af bo op die loft nie.

Not the best value for money. The place needs upgrading for the price.

Please look to the master bedroom's shower and toilet, and the lights cannot be turned off upstairs in the loft.

Lodge kan met paar goed verbeter om kuier geriefliker te maak.

Kombuisgoed o.a. kastrolle, opskepbakke, gewone bakke ens. kort. Stort in groot badkamer kan opgradeer word. Gaste wat bo slaap moet van ander gaste se badkamers gebruikmaak. Uitleg van die lodge nie gerieflik nie, moet deur slaapkamer loop na braai-area. Van die stoele is stukkend. Beddens/beddegoed was reg en lieflike yskas het baie gehelp, dankie.

Lodge can improve with a few things to make visiting more comfortable.

Kitchenware a.o. saucepans, ladles, regular bowls etc. short. Shower in large bathroom can be upgraded. Guests sleeping upstairs must use other guests' bathrooms. Layout of the lodge not convenient, have to walk through bedroom to braai area. Some of the chairs are broken. Beds/bedding were ok and lovely fridge helped a lot, thank you.

Fantastiese wegbreek vir ons gesin en kleinkind.

Vyfster-verblyf wat bekostigbaar is en naby winkel, restaurant en rivier. Naglewe beter as in die Krugerwildtuin. Kan tot laat nag by jou vuurtjie kuier en na die sterre kyk en na naggeluide luister. Dit was hemels.

Five-star accommodation that is affordable and close to shops, restaurants and the river. Nightlife better than in the Kruger National Park. Can hang out by your fire until late at night and look at the stars and listen to night sounds. It was heavenly.

It was lovely. The perfect house for our needs.

We would just recommend that they look at alternative options during load shedding. The rechargeable light globes did not work at all, and there were no other alternative to generate light during the dark stages. But other than that, the house was a pleasure to stay in, thank you.

Thanks so much for your review. All bulbs in the bedside lamps are rechargeable and work when electricity is off. There are also emergency battery operated lights and the hob is gas operated. The oven is not gas as it is electrical, but even during load shedding there is light and a working stove top. I checked with the manager and she says that she explained this to you. I apologise if this was not the case.

Heerlik gekuier.

Baie netjiese huis. Dis 'n wonderlike tweeslaapkamerhuis met baie ekstra spasie bo vir kinders maar bietjie ongerieflik vir drie pare aangesien daar net twee en suite-badkamers onder is. Boonste gaste moet deur slaapkamers onder om badkamer te gebruik. Anders heerlike huis met wonderlike fasiliteite.

Lekker huis vir groot groep mense, baie veilig.

Dit was 'n lekker ruim huis om in te bly. Die foto's wys nie hoeveel slaapplek daar eintlik is nie. Daar is 2 kamers met lugversorging op die onderste vloer en dan 8 dubbelbeddens op die boonste vloer in een groot vertrek. Daar is ook vol DSTV en gratis WiFi. Daar is ook 'n veilige kuierplek met 'n plonspoel buite. Daar is ook 'n braai en hulle bied gratis skoonmaakdiens aan as mens dit wil hê. Die week verblyf is waarde vir geld, maar die naweke is bietjie te duur na my mening. Die eienaars is van Australië en was vreeslik vriendelik, hulle het ons kom groet met aankoms en toe ons vertrek het.

Nice house for large group of people, very safe.

It was a nice spacious house to stay in. The photos do not show how much sleeping space there actually is. There are 2 rooms with air conditioning on the lower floor and then 8 double beds on the upper floor in one large room. There is also full DSTV and free WiFi. There is also a safe hangout area with a splash pool outside. There is also a braai and they offer a free cleaning service if you want it. The week stay is value for money, but the weekends are a bit too expensive in my opinion. The owners are from Australia and were very friendly, they came to greet us on arrival and when we left.

Beautiful, spacious and relaxed.

We had such a great time at Wildgoose Self-Catering Lodge. The house is neat and spacious, lovely entertainment area. The braai is a little unpractical but that would be the only thing. They assist with anything when you contact them, and they are there in 5 mins if you ask them to help with something in the house. Was a lovely stay.
