Our Personal Opinion

We would definitely recommend Sediba if you are looking to spend a romantic weekend away. The suites are incredibly spacious and private. It was lovely to sit in our private Jacuzzi while sipping on cocktails; overlooking the game reserve. The staff are wonderful and treat you like royalty and not to mention the meals; wow - just amazing. 5 Star at its best!

We were a group of 5 people and really liked our weekend stay in Sediba. The lodge capacity is around 30 people and there were only 4 more people except of us. The service was really personalised, a lot of thanks to Felix, Salomon,Bee and cooks Peter and Nabuku. We loved all our meals which were very tasty and looking great, really did not expect this.

The rooms or rather houses we stayed in were really huge for just 1 person and nicely decorated, the surrounding is beautiful which can be enjoyed through the glass walls. Thanks for our relaxing weekend!
