"Having stayed at Sunbird Lodge before, we had no hesitation in booking our overnight stay prior to going into Kruger Park. Dave, ever cheerful, greeted us like old friends and showed us to our garden room. We like a room that opens onto the garden rather than in someone's home - Sunbird Lodge ticks that box. The gardens are spacious and the birds numerous. Our beds were comfortable, the bathroom adequate. We had meat to store and Dave reminded us of the freezer space available in addition to the small fridge in the room. Breakfast was full 'English' and delicious. We would recommend Sunbird to others.

"We arrived at the Sunbird Lodge when it was already dark, and had a little trouble finding the place, but the owner's warm welcome, help with luggage and a delightfully clean bed and room soon dispelled our travel frowns! Breakfast was exactly as we would have wished and our every need was met. We shall certainly stay there next time- no need to look any further for an overnight stop in Phalaborwa."


"Satisfied"

(South Africa) Mr de Jager | 2014-06-18 00:00:00.0

"Everything was fine with my stay. I would suggest this place to others and revisit again."


"Great staff & garden"

(South Africa) anonymous | 2013-09-15 21:18:01.0

"This establishment has two major assets: an impressive garden that makes you forget that you've scheduled game drive, and very friendly and attentive staff. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely be staying at Sunbird Lodge the next time we visit the Kruger."


"Sunny at Sunbird Lodge"

"Friendly"

(Australia) Mr Mason | 2010-07-24 07:28:37.0

"A must in Palaborwa"

(South Africa) Mrs Adcock | 2009-07-20 11:01:51.0

"Of all the guesthouses in Phalaborwa, we chose one (unbeknown to us) where the owner knew my uncle some 30 years back! We used Sunbird Lodge as a stop over from Mozambique back to Johannesburg and were hosted in Heron Cottage. Others in our group were hosted in two double rooms. Facilities were great with a lovely bar area and beautiful gardens. Our hosts directed us to a great pub and grill after two weeks of eating fish in Mozambique. We personally did not have breakfast as we made our way home, but others in our group stayed an extra day and said that the breakfasts were great. I would highly recommend this lodge for anybody looking at staying in the area. "


"Accommodating Accommodation"

"At the last minute I needed accommodation, for my family, close to the Kruger Park, and I was efficiently and politely dealt with by Sunbird Lodge. No sooner had they confirmed the booking. I then established I had incorrectly booked and needed to amend the dates. This was not only accommodated, but was also treated in the same efficient and polite nature, even assisting with a reduction in costs! The staff at Sunbird Lodge accommodated our late arrival, and every request we made, even to booking a table for us at the local restaurant. 5 Stars for a Lodge where the staff and rooms emphasize extremely on accommodation."


"Sunbird Lodge Stayover"

(South Africa) Mr Smitsdorff | 2009-07-18 13:58:07.0

"As a family we had a lovely stay. We were warmly received and were impressed by the neatness of the place. I don't think we would find the same quality at a better price. Our accommodation was lovely and spacious, and had all the amenities we were looking for as a base to the Kruger Park. We woul..."

"We found Sunbird Lodge on the Rooms for Africa website along with 5 other possible venues. We emailed questions to each and finally decided on Sunbird. Gosh, we made such a good choice as it fitted our requirements exactly. The accommodation and service was better than described, and Dave and Samantha's advice and assistance with all matters was faultless. It is a perfect base to travel daily into the park and had we realised this when we booked, we would have chosen to do just that and save on inflated SANPark accommodation costs. We hope to go back soon and meanwhile we will recommend it to all friends travelling to the Kruger."

"We have been warmly received despite having arrived at 21H50. The place is very nice and wouldn't mind going back again. We joked with the owner that our next visit to Kruger National Park through Phalaborwa gate shall be delayed so that we can sleep over. I recommend the place to anyone who wants a bushveld experience (1,5 km to the Kruger gate) with a close proximity to town (another 1.5km to Pick n Pay in a Mall). Talk about the best of both worlds. Words alone can't explain what we experienced, just book-in and experience it yourself. Sunbird Lodge, a place to be! "


"Hospitable, clean and have an excellent Manager"

(South Africa) Mr Digomo | 2008-12-17 09:14:59.0

"We were received with all the hospitality we expected. The service was just excellent. The environment was very quiet and breath taking."


"Sunbird was the best"

(Netherlands) Mr Snijder | 2008-08-20 11:25:01.0

"Sunbird lodge has very nice facilities and the owners provide excellent hospitality! We certainly enjoyed our 8 days stay at the Sunbird lodge! We were provided with all we needed, including restaurant reservations and tour bookings! Many thanks!"


"One of the best places to visit in winter"

(South Africa) Mr Tselapedi | 2008-06-19 11:08:27.0

The beauty of the garden and singing birds makes it a relaxing place for nature lovers and is centrally located to natural places of interest. We realized that our stay was short more with the warmth and friendly treatment we received from the owners. I would recommend this place to any tourist who would like to be away from winter in June/July but still be in South Africa. I was amazed that they still have mielie plants that will be harvested in July."


"A great stay!"

(Switzerland) Mrs Locatelli | 2007-12-17 16:22:26.0

"The Sunbird Lodge in Phalaborwa is the perfect place to overnight, before entering the Kruger National Park. The rooms are nice and clean and the Food was good! A beautiful garden is surrounding the guesthouse and we had the feeling to be very welcome."

"Resourceful Dave"

(South Africa) Mr Phayane | 2007-07-30 16:02:55.0

"Dave is the most resourceful B&B owner I have met. Most places that we visited whilst in Limpopo were recommended by him. The breakfast in this place makes you come back. The welcome is something to write home about. He really knows his story."
