What our guests have to say
Tshwene Lodge is an amazing, peaceful and special place to unwind and relax. Staff were very attentive to our needs and ensured we had the best stay. Food was delicious and we had fantastic animal sightings with our game ranger, who was professional, cheerful and knowledgeable. Will definitely be returning.
Liane WTshwene Lodge
Just had the best “Girls Wine Weekend” at Country House – chilled and relaxing with a hearty indoor fire each evening and the best linen and duvets for the chilly nights. The staff and service was excellent, and Jennifer, the GM, went out of her way to make our stay amazing. She even sorted out our itinerary for a day of wine tasting in the beautiful Plett Winelands! We will be back!
Lyndsay SCountry House
Everything about this hotel is exceptional. The rooms are beautiful, spacious and very clean. The staff are friendly and attentive without being overly intrusive. The breakfast is delicious. The beach is a two minute walk away and there are tons of restaurants nearby. A tranquil retreat that I cannot recommend enough!
Freya SThe Old Rectory
To put into words the experience at The Outpost is close to impossible – it is something that has to be experienced yourself. The lodge is absolutely stunning, the views from the rooms spectacular and the service out of this world. The warmth and friendliness of the staff makes me truly proud to be South African.
Anneke EThe Outpost
