"Hi there, Gwalagwala is an absolute fabulous stay especially if you like to experience the bush to its fullest. We were welcomed by Roxy and Nardia who spoilt us rotten with their drinks and chats. Nardia especially a thumbs up. Collen was a great companion with regards to the bush. The first game drive in the car was fantastic and we could ask questions and received loads of information. The bush walk the next day was a bit long for my parents who joined us, but nevertheless, wonderful to experience. The game drive in the morning was the best with the spotting of the cheetah, lions and herd of lions. A excellent place to go to and thank you to Dorian and Ann for their quick responses via email!"

"We really did enjoy Gwalagwala. An intimate setting, with attention to detail, and a relaxed attitude, that is very inviting. We will recommend it to our friends. Our stay was too short to really experience everything on offer, but our brief sample was enticing, many thanks. Dinner was a little average, but you are not selling yourself as a cullinary experience so not really a problem."
"Will be back."

"We spent three days in a very relaxed environment. We were very well received from the first minute. The lodge is quite small which get you toknow the other guests and staff very well, without interfering with privacy. The game drives were very good and we managed to see the big 5 on a nearby game reserve. In Gwalagwala we went for bushwalks with our guides as well as gamedrives to focus more on the Gwalagwala reserve. The bushwalks gave us opportunity to see the small things like antlions, scratchmarks from a leopard and close encounters with giraffes, well presented by the excellent guides."
