This lodge is head and shoulders above the rest because of the fantastic family who will host you. They are a lovely family - cheerful, considerate, helpful, warm, well-informed, often checking that we were completely happy and that all our needs were met. The lodge is superb, the gardens are stunning, with many mature trees, the rooms are fabulous, the food is delicious and healthy, and there's a pool to cool off in. The main house is out of this world - really awesome! We felt instantly welcome and really at home here. Highly recommended!

Jill and the staff seemed to anticipate our every need and were one step ahead of us to ensure we never lacked for anything. The entire trip from the time we were picked up at the airport until we were dropped was beyond our expectations. There was so much to see and do and we never saw it all. Therefore we have rebooked to see some more but we are bringing a few friends to enjoy the wonderful hospitality provided by Mafigeni. Thank you All for such an awesome experience.

My wife Felicia bought me a trip to Africa for my birthday, and it was the best birthday ever, thanks to the great folks at Mafigeni. From the time Alec met us in the airport until he dropped us off 10 days later, we were treated like royalty. The lodge is beautiful, the food is AMAZING, and the staff incredibly accommodating. 
The trip started as a photo safari, and the 2 days we spent in Krueger National Park with Alec and Raven were incredible. We saw so many magnificent animals, took hundreds of great pictures, and had a lot of laughs! Alec is so knowledgeable about all of Africa, but particularly about African wildlife, and Raven is just delightful.
