We spent the long weekend at Lengau Lodge and had a wonderful time. The chalets (or rondavels as they call it) were beautifully appointed, brand new and contained everything one would want. The food was amazing and they took cognisance of any dietary requirements and even changed the planned menu because we did not like the option. Loek and Ilse are very hospitable and because the lodge only has 3 rooms, catering for 6 guests at a time. It is very intimate and you get personalised service. On our last evening we had a "family dinner" with Loek, Ilse and their son who was vising from the Netherlands.This was a real highlight as we had a great opportunity to swap ideas, stories and have a good laugh.
They offer one game drive per day and one has the option to go on additional drives at a very reasonable rate, which we did. The game drives were scenic and we had amazing sightings of the Elephants and other game. Well worth visiting and we will be back. The cheese sandwiches on the morning game drive hit the spot everytime - thanks Loek and Ilse - for a new lodge you have managed to get it right.
Heerlijk genoten in dit prachtige gebied. Geweldige natuur, de mooiste ontmoetingen in Grietjie gehad. Onder andere leeuwen families en statige neushoorns. Ook speelse, nieuwschierige olifanten vlakbij het 'waterhole'. Vanaf hier ook een prachtige aansluiting op het Krugerpark en andere mooie uitstappen. Daarnaast super service, de gastheer en gastvrouw (echte levensgenieters) gaan tot het uiterste voor de mooiste ervaringen voor hun gasten. Ik zou Lengau Lodge aan iedereen aanraden. Ik ben absoluut van plan om nog eens terug te komen.
Delicious enjoyed in this beautiful area. Great nature, the best encounters in Grietjie. Among other things, lion families and stately rhinos. Also playful, curious elephants close to the 'waterhole'. From here also a wonderful connection to the Kruger Park and other beautiful excursions. In addition, super service, the host and hostess (real bon vivants) go to the extreme for the best experiences for their guests. I would recommend Lengau Lodge to anyone. I definitely intend to come back again.

Zeer gastvrij ontvangen op een prachtige plek midden in het big five gebied. Een paar dagen verbleven op deze kleinschalige lodge met veel persoonlijke aandacht van de gastvrouw en gastheer. De rondavel is voorzien van alle gemakken zoals airconditioning en een mooie badkamer. De buitendouche maakte het helemaal bijzonder, douchen onder de prachtige Afrikaanse sterrenhemel! Het eten viel goed in de smaak, heerlijke 3 gangen diners welke met veel zorg bereid zijn. Het ontbijt na de ochtend game-drive was elke keer weer een verrassing en erg uitgebreid. De dag dat we op de lodge besloten te blijven, konden we gebruik maken van een lunchkaart. Dat was ideaal, konden we de hele dag heerlijk bij het zwembad blijven en werden goed verzorgd. Het zwembad is groot genoeg om regelmatig baantjes in te trekken en daarna genoeg mogelijkheden om met een boek op één van de vele zitjes uit te rusten. Het uitkijkdek was ook prachtig, vanuit daar had je mooi uitzicht op de omgeving en op de water drinkplek voor de dieren bij de logde. We hebben regelmatig de warthogs kunnen zien drinken en baden, heel grappig om te zien! De game-drives zijn ook absoluut de moeite waard. In het park zijn veel dieren te zien, zebra's, giraffen, kudu's en we hadden zelfs het geluk om tweemaal leeuwen te spotten! In de ochtend koffie en een sandwich mee en 's avonds een heerlijk drankje als sundowner bij de rivier. Dit is absoluut een plek om nog eens naar toe terug te gaan. Een prachtige lodge met vriendelijke eigenaren en heerlijk eten. Het is voor ons de perfecte vakantie geweest!
Very warm welcome in a beautiful place in the middle of the big five area. Stayed a few days at this small-scale lodge with a lot of personal attention from the hostess and host. The rondavel is equipped with all conveniences such as air conditioning and a beautiful bathroom. The outdoor shower made it completely special, showering under the beautiful African starry sky! The food was good, delicious 3 course dinners which are prepared with great care. The breakfast after the morning game drive was always a surprise and very extensive. The day we decided to stay at the lodge, we could use a lunch card. That was ideal, we could stay all day by the pool and were well cared for. The swimming pool is large enough to regularly swim laps and afterwards plenty of opportunities to rest with a book on one of the many seats. The viewing deck was also beautiful, from there you had a beautiful view of the surroundings and the water drinking place for the animals at the lodge. We have regularly seen the warthogs drink and bathe, very funny to see! The game drives are also definitely worth it. In the park you can see many animals, zebras, giraffes, kudus and we were even lucky enough to spot lions twice! In the morning coffee and a sandwich and in the evening a delicious drink as a sun downer by the river. This is definitely a place to go back again. A beautiful lodge with friendly owners and delicious food. It has been the perfect vacation for us!
We were lucky enough to stumble across this lodge in an internet search for Private Game Lodges outside Kruger National Park. Their attention to detail started right at the beginning when we contacted the owners enquiring about a booking. They could not have been more helpful and replied to my ridiculous number of questions willingly. We were contacted nearer our visit with a wonderful information booklet that was, not only informative, but a really lovely touch and made us really look forward to our visit. We stayed at Lengau Lodge for the last 3 nights of our 10 day trip to Kruger. The accommodation was absolutely beautiful. Each Rondavel is individually decorated and the finishing touches were just beautiful. They all have a private terrace that overlooks the watering hole and private outdoor shower, which was so lovely to use. The food was just amazing ( Thank you Ilse). I am quite a fussy eater, but i ate everything! It was better than any high class restaurant that I have been to, I just wish I had taken more photos to do it justice. You will never go hungry! They also went out of their way to feed our 2 fussy children. We went out on 2 game drives per day, which were all so special. Loek was very informative about all the animals and made you feel at ease, even when a herd of Elephants passed right in front of the truck! The sun downer drinks by the river were also such a special experience. The rest of our time was spent relaxing around the beautiful swimming pool, or spotting game from the amazing viewing deck. The Lodge is close enough to Kruger that you can easily do a day trip into Kruger, but we managed to see plenty, including Lions, so this isn't necessary. The only bad thing about this Lodge, was having to leave. We had such and incredible 3 days there and will definitely be returning. Thank you Loek and Ilse.
