We were here for 2 nights again after 2 years. And we again enjoyed our stay. Would come again next time. Great lodging and location. The houses are terrific with everything that you would need for a short stay. The wildlife is fun if this is an early visit in the country

Just was a stressful day since I arrived there, the owner doesn’t respect if you got kids or not, very tough, unreliable and terrible owner(man) was very rude with us and he doesn’t care if you stay or to leave or to come again or not. Will never be there anymore.

Response from BuyskopLodge, Owner at Buyskop Lodge
Responded 2 weeks ago
Good day Thanks for taking the time to review your stay. However, we would like to point out the following. There were an attempted break in to your chalet but nothing was stolen as our security guards were onto the perpetrator in a flash as they are trained to be. Unfortunately we are all facing increasing crime levels nowadays in South Africa but we do our utmost best to prevent any loss, as was successfully achieved. Your chalets were cleaned everyday, beds made & dishes washed as is the routine now everyday for every chalet. We believe your negative comments has much to do with the reprimand regarding loud music played at the swimming pools, which is not allowed at Buyskop Lodge...
