A step back in time almost. A very colonial style hotel with wood paneled library and oriental rugs everywhere. A fantastic setting with the lake, a nice pool and very pleasant bar for the evening G&T. Close to kruger for the game drives and Gods Window and other scenic attractions within an hour. Would definitely return.

Room was clean, comfortable and had all amenities you would need. The little...

The Lodge is in a lovely location with a pool and view over a lake in the distance. Food was good and service friendly. One small problem: the kettle, which worked at reception, would not work in the bedroom where there was electricity, perhaps because it was too powerful for the sockets there.

We decided on a last minute booking at Hulala where I had last stayed 25 years ago . great to see that some things don't change but just get better. We enjoyed the birdlife and outdoor activities. An ideally situated location for exploring the Lowveld.

i cannot fault Hulala for excellence in food , service and rooms. A real effort was made by both staff and management in respect of all interactions with us. This is a boutique hotel but with a personal feel which suits both family and business guests. My only small quibble is that on Christmas Day where an extra R320.00 pp...

I stayed there many times before. The breakfast was not good with flies climbing on the food and nobody to look after the food. Waiters are not trained well and misunderstand requests and that was imbarrising with a partner.

This lodge offers 2 options of day or sunset boat cruise. The cruise is an hour long with snacks served on board but drinks are own expense. Enjoyed spectacular views and the serenity!! The cost is reasonably affordable.

I really appreciated the location of this lodge because it is on the river side. The room was a big one with nice African style furniture. The only negative point is that the central heating was off and it was quite cold in the room. The restaurant serves very good food and the service is really good as well.
