“Baluleni Safari Lodge”

Very enjoyable stay. Elke, the owner was friendly, eager to please and went out of her way to make our stay memorable. We were a family of 5 adults in two chalets – stayed for 5 nights! On New Years Eve, she lit up our paths so we could go on our own to each other’s chalets, just so we could spend more time together and celebrate the New Year together. Even though Evert was ill, she still managed to serve with a smile. Was also great meeting people from various parts of the world. We got to see the all elusive leopard with its kill on a tree which was amazing!!! We did self-drive into Kruger and she packed breakfast and lunch for us. Highly recommend this lodge.

“Amazing stay within a once-in-a-lifetime experience!”

Elke and Evert provide with no doubt the best time in the bush you could expect. Dining with all guests and staff like family, game drives with the most knowledgable guides and your days in a location that’s out of a movie scene. Wether you look for an exciting adventure or a pleasant and warm stay, Baluleni gather the best of both things. I wouldn’t hesitate in choosing them again, the Baluleni team makes every last penny worth!

“Great base for the Kruger area”

After quite a bit of research prior to going to South Africa we chose to stay at the Baluleni lodge for 3 nights. Elke and Evert are the lovely owners who have a passion for the wildlife in this part of the world and Jan was the fantastic guide who told us everything we needed to know on the various game drives that we did, including a full day in the Kruger park itself. To us it felt more like visiting someone’s home rather than paying to stay at business premises. The room we stayed in was comfortable and overlooking a waterhole and riverside trail, where baboons and impala passed by. Breakfast was always good and the evening meal at a table next to an open fire beneath the stars, with animal noises for background noise, was exactly the experience we wanted. On the game drives you stay with the animals as long as you wish and on the second evening we went out for a second impromptu game drive as word had reached us that a pride of 6 male lions were on a neighbouring property. The roaring noise they made in the darkness lit only by torchlight is something we will never forget. From Johannesburg to the Kruger area we used the Ashton’s service which is prompt and used by many tourists, and the Lodge picked us up and dropped us off at the Three Bridges restaurant at the start and end of our trip. Highly recommended.

“Lions around the lodge!”

What an amazing place. I stayed here for 7 nights and never a dull moment. I joined a package with a full day in Kruger Park, the panorama route tour and a visit to the Cheetah project. Staff was very friendly, accommodation clean and food always good.
Elke and Evert were very nice and always around for questions but are also a very nice company. The guide Jan was amazing, nice and very knowledgeable. We saw loads of animals from small to big ones. A highlight of course where the mating lions…
Even more exciting were the lions around the lodge at most of the nights when I was there, could hardly sleep, so exciting:-) Elke, Evert and Jan and all staff, thank you so much for these memorable stays. Hope to be back next year!
