I'm traveling a lot for business and really can say that I wish some of the high priced hotels would offer the service I received at Abangane. The first morning I got up and made a picture out of the bed. I posted it on facebook. A friend was replying that he knew this picture from the movie "Out of...

We had the misfortune of reaching Albanians on aug 2nd after nearly 20 hours of travelling. It was dark at 6 pm when our driver dropped us off at Abangane.

Thank you very much for taking your time to write a review about your stay, although a terrifying one. We would like to clarify certain aspects of your "facts": Your booking was processed via a third party travel agent and we had no direct contact or details before your arrival. Your booking was B&B only and dinner was never requested....

Absolutely wonderful experience. The hosts are super friendly, Klaus is a very good cook, the ambient is just extremely cozy. It's a very nice property, very well maintained and decorated. You feel like you're miles away from everything else and can only enjoy the view and relax. The pool and garden are very well maintained and the view can make...

After several times to South Africa for business, finally I got the decision to stay over the weekend and spend a couple of days visiting the Kruger Park. The Abangane Lodge is just outside the Park area; for us, arriving late in the evening, it represented the only option since you cannot enter the Kruger after a fixed time in...

We had a very warm welcome at the Lodge last time we went to the Kruger! Klaus, one of the owners, showed us around and made us feel comfortable. He has a great blog where he usually posts some of this recipes prepared at the lodge. Rooms are spacious and comfortable. Dinner at the Lodge was excellent! The dogs are...

On arrival we were greeted by Klaus who showed us around. The place met our expectations fully (we chose the guest house because of the photos and travel reviews of previous guests). The view is magnificient and so is the food. The price of the 3 course dinner compares well with prices of other restaurants, of the same standard (if...

We spend only one night in this BB on our way from Johannesburg to Orpen Gate. We felt we should have spent another day there as it is a beautiful BB.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The very prestigious Abangane Guest Lodge is located on a 22 hectare portion of the original “Farm de Rust” situated on the Sabie Road in Hazyview. Since opening, Abangane Guest Lodge continues to maintain its exclusive 4 star environment. The Lodge is highly regarded for its peaceful, tranquil surroundings and its ability to provide the highest quality of service. Guests marvel at the sheer expanse of the luscious surrounding bushveld, picturesque gardens, panoramic views across the valley, the majestic mountains in the distance and the promise of a glorious sunset. Abangane is an exceptional and exclusive lodge. At sunrise and sunset Zebras, Impalas, Giraffes and many more can be seen grazing on the neighboring private game farm. The sparkling blue infinity pool with its breathtaking view over the valley adds to the serene ambiance. Nighttime is magical with lanterns that invite you for a walk through the lush gardens while you take in the sounds of the evening. Most evenings you will be blessed with the haunting cry of the Fish Eagle heard high above the hilltops. Abangane Guest Lodge is the ideal gateway to the famous Kruger National Park. Three access gates are located nearby, the closest being the Phabeni Gate reachable within a leisurely 15 minute drive. The Blyde River Canyon with the famous God’s Window and other spectacular attractions are easily accessible from Abangane Lodge. All just a day trip away. Some of the best restaurants in the area are a short drive from the Lodge as well as a comprehensive, well equipped shopping centre a mere 2 km away. Discerning travelers will find quick access to most amenities and resources they may require. A wholesome continental or full English breakfast can be enjoyed in the Lodge dining room or on the open veranda. The abundant birdlife welcomes in the day as you plan your activities over freshly brewed coffee or tea. After a day of adventure and wonderment you are welcome to relax and enjoy a sundowner poolside, or relax under the gazebo in our tranquil surroundings. Should you not feel like dining out a delicious candlelight dinner could be prepared for you. This would be by prior arrangement. ... more   less
