Boom African Rock Lodge We stayed here for two nights. What a magnificent place to stay. Good atmosphere, in a laid back area. Great hospitality, very good food. Don’t look any further, this is the place to be in the neighbourhood of Hoedspruit.


We’ve enjoyed our stay! We will most definately return – we’ve enjoyed our one night stay recently, the breakfast was nice and the room well equipped – thanks to the owners, Gerard & Yvonne for making us feel welcome! Regards Gerhard & Annamarie Esterhuizen

Great hosts and a comfortable place We stayed here for 2 nights. Yvonne and Gerard are great hosts, and a bit quirky. Gerard can tell you everything you ever wanted to know about South African car licence plates. The lodge itself is very cozy, with a bush decor. It’s very clean, and housekeeping was in […]

Warm and hospitable We stayed at the African Rock Lodge for 4 nights, having read the rave reviews and were not disappointed – in fact we were very impressed by the friendly hospitality provided. Yvonne and Gerard’s experience in running a highly successful B & B in Joburg shows, but it’s their genuine pleasure taken […]
