Blyde Private Lodge

Blyde Private Lodge is a 8 sleeper self-catering house situated in the Blyde Wildlife Estate. The Blyde Wildlife Estate is located on 700 acres of bushland along the beautiful Blyde River, and the lodge is hidden away in the typical bush vegetation for privacy.

The fenced estate offers plenty of game to be seen, including kudu, zebra, giraffe, wildebeest, impala, waterbuck, nyala, warthog, bushbuck, and hippo. The fencing as well as 24-hour access control provides great security and safety to guests.

Blyde Private Lodge contains four en-suite bedrooms with direct access to the wooden deck and swimming pool. Features include three living areas, a modern kitchen that is well- equipped for self-catering, and a dining room area. In addition, a double garage is also available for guests' use. We also offer a service of game drives through the Kruger Park for an additional agreed fee.

    "I try to be fair, but we were rather disappointed. We booked this house for 4 nights in November 2016. We have chosen Blyde Private Lodge because we needed a 5 bedroom house and the Reviews were excellent. Unfortunately the reality was different. We had only 4 bedroom available. The 5th bedroom was used by the maid (Wilhelmine was a darling, it was not her fault!). The pool did not work, a shower in one bathroom did not spend any water. We spend time to fix it. The interior of the house is very simple. Naked bedrooms, not even a chair in them. But the Price is low, so I won't complain the poor interior. But when I got home from the holiday, I complained the missing bedroom and the pool. I did not ask fo any compensation, but Matome offered one and we both agreed for a 20 percent reimbursement, what means R1680. What followed then, is the reason, why I write this Review. The next 6 weeks nothing happend. Matome's explanation: Very busy during december. Ok I thought, be more patient. Since then, I wrote about 12 more emails. The excuse this time: He can not transfer SA Rand into another country. He will advise Safari Now to do so. This was the last statement I got, nearly 2 months ago. I do not get any reaction any more. I will never stay there again. I love South Africa. We travel there almost every year. This is the first time I feel betrayed."

  • "Great place"

    25 March 2013

    "We had a most enjoyable, but too short stay, at Blyde Eco Estate. The Lodge was very private, comfortable, spacious and well equipped, with a lovely deck and pool with the most stunning view of the mountains and sunsets. There is a club house in the Estate with dining facilities. Great place to stay to explore the area."
