I am torn writing this, since the whole experience was great so to be unselfish the world should know what a fab place this is, but the unspoilt nature of the place, the personal service and quality would be lessened by crowds. So keeping things quiet is a temptation! So with some reluctance, I take the unselfish path and highly... More

Wanting a base to tour some of the Zulu battlefields, we chose to stay in this rather 'off the beaten track' Lodge. We were certainly not disappointed. The valley itself is a hidden gem, unspoilt & verdantly green, with an abundance of flaura & fauna. The lodge is lovely. We ate dinner by candlelight & silver, surrounded by prints of... More

We stayed two nights at the Babanango Valley Lodge and absolutely loved it. This small cosy loge is situated on its own in a large valley of beautiful wilderness. The rooms are spacious and decorated in old colonial style. From the pool you overlook the valley and can se impalas and wildebeest walking by. The service is outstanding and staff... More

After travelling 12 km down a bumpy dirt road, you suddenly arrive at this oasis of peace and calm with wonderful views down the valley. We were given a warm welcome, shown to our delightful room (spacious and individually furnished, with lots of welcome little touches), and provided with tea by the swimming pool. The three course dinner, and generous... More

My wife and two year old daughter stayed at Babanango Valley Lodge for a couple of nights in early January. The drive off the main road and into the nature reserve, sets the scene for what is a remote and tranquil setting. The lodge commands fantastic views down the valley with not another sign of human life anywhere to be... More
