              A Hidden Gem in Gauteng”

              Amadwala Lodge is one of those places you don't expect to find in Gauteng. it was an amazing experience, we truly enjoyed the stay at the tent houses, they were big and spacious, electric blankets to keep us warm at night. the Views from our balcony were amazing. Thank you to David, the bar tender at the Pool area, your service was amazing and the food was just as great. Please uddate your contact line info good and the website, I had been calling on the day of our arrival, It kept going on voicemail. in overall, the time we had with my boyfriend was really great.

              Safari tent was amazing and my partner was in awe”

              My partner didn't know that I booked a safari tent and when she was informed before she saw it, she was so cross. Even before the tent was opened she started melting and finally when she saw the inside of the tent she loved everything about it. Everything else including view., nature from rocks to art is just wow!

              We were greeted with a smile and the friendliest staff! They walked us to our room and ensured that everything was up to standard. The next morning,the breakfast was great as well! My only regret is that we didn’t stay the entire weekend. We will definitely be back though! That is for sure!

              I booked one of the tents, for my partner and I enjoyed ourselves as it was a different experience compared to the normal hotel stays we get. It's a nice stand alone lodge away from all the noise and it has beautiful views.

              All staff members were very friendly n welcoming,from the reception guy to the waiters n room service guys.what i loved the most was cleanest of the chalet n the outside area is well taken care off,there s actual nothing wrong to say about this place.they just need to maybe improve on the breakfast,it was a bit dry for me n there s less options to choose from,the food i can rate it 6/10,we ordered a lamb shank which in normal sense should be soft and tender but it was hard n chewy,food s the only area they will need to improve on,loved the private balcon made for every unit its very nice n that u can actually order yr breakfast n lunch n get served to ur own unit,thier tents are very beautiful n classy thou we booked the chalet,next time il actually booked the tent,its a fancy tent with a front balcony n chairs
