"Just got home from a wonderful three night getaway at Bananien Lodge. The lodge was warm, clean, cosy and centrally located which made it easy to do day trips to all the wonderful natural attractions. We loved the fact that the cell phone signal wasn't great and that there was no TV as we bonded as a family with our two teenage girls. We will definitely be back!"


"Relaxing "

Linda Chetty | 23 May 2017

"I loved the serenity and peace of the place. The stove can was a bit annoying as it switched off every time it went over a certain temperature. It took me two hours to fry 1 dozen samosas. "

"Well located"

(France) Nicolas Heyer | 10 March 2010

"The place is very well located in a green park with a lot of space and the lodges are also comfortable. We were a little bit disappointed that the pool was not clean. After a long day on the road we expected to relax in the fresh water."


"More than the eye beholds"

(South Africa) Caroline Ovenstone | 9 January 2010

"We were welcomed and well accommodated at Bananien. The setting is lovely and the nature amazing. The units themselves are tired and in need of an upgrade. The kitchen is tiny ! That said, the atmosphere is great and we enjoyed our stay."

"We where there for the annual Sabie Experience. So our stay was about getting up at 5am out by 6am and only back at 4pm eat, out for the race briefing and back to sleep at 9pm. Not quite the holiday fib we where going for.

All we ask is for quite clean space where we can make food and sleep and the what is gr8 of the other places like Mary Pebbles is that they have a place to wash the bikes after each day. As maintenance is very important this is a nice feature that we did not have.

Over all we where happy with what we got. "

"Met ons aankoms was ons regtig vriendelik ontvang. Die bly plek is uitstekend. Ons het vir die motor fiets rally daar oornag en is deur die eienaar met goeie raad voorsien aangaande die omgewing. Baie dankie vir julle. Sal weer van julle gebruik maak in die toekoms.

"Lovely affordable weekend retreat"

(South Africa) Kerrie Austin | 5 September 2007

"Very basic rustic small log cabins set in a charming garden on the road between Sabie and Hazyview...expect some road noise. Well situated for touring the Panaroma and Kruger Park. Don't forget to bring your own bath and swimming towels."

"Weekend stay"

Anonymous | 28 May 2007

"The lodge was cosy and everyone was friendly - we thought it was a central location to see all we wanted to see - e.g Pilgroms rest, Gods window, macmac, lisbon falls etc

There was a little noise from the road. But in general it was comfortable and what we needed. ThankS!"


"Rest assured"

(South Africa) chris rsa | 28 May 2007

"Our stay at Basnaniem Lodge was excellent. We really enjoyed the comfortable lodge's clean environment and the friendliness of all the staff. I would suggest Baninien Lodge as a base for the Mpumalanga region to anyone. We are planning our next trip already.

Thanks again"

"We enjoyed the quiet surroundings and the sound of the water in the river. A special thanks to Jacque, Maggie & Pieter. When in the area we will use the lodge again and will recommend to friends. If possible a microwave oven should be available in the cabins. "

We arrived way too early, and Maggie let us stay and use the pool until our rooms were ready, which was so nice. There is so much to see in the surrounding areas, and this made for a great base. For our first 2 nights in South Afirca -this lovely accommodation set the standard for everywhere else to meet. Will definitely stay here again when we come to SA next."

"The lodges are very clean and neat and the scenery amazing and peaceful. We really enjoyed our stay. It is quite central for sightseeing. Just some little things to consider. When you think of a lodge you would expect tea and coffee to be available. Just enough for the period of your stay for the morning. Hand soap would be a nice to have. I do understand that people steal the towels and if that is the case then charge them a deposit for the towels payable back to the person if towels are still on the premises. Maggie was very friendly and accommodating. We will be back"
