"“Bush feel Luxury!”"
We where greeted by Joe as we arrived, he was extremely friendly and showed us around before showing us our room. The room was very pleasant, with a lot of space and a nice and big Bathroom with separate Toilet. The view from the room was absolutely breathtaking and the whole area/Lodge gave off a very peaceful atmosphere. We got there on a very hot day and immediately jumped into the pool, which was at a perfect temperature.
We hadn't planned much for Dinner, and when we asked Joe and Magrit, they gave us a few recomendations. We chose the most recomended one and Joe imidiately got on the phone to the resturaunt, made a reservation and we even recieved a discount at the resturaunt for having stayed at Abangane.
The breakfasts where perfect. Everything one could need was there. One morning we left early and went to the Kruger Park. Magrit packed us a picknick basket, which we took with us on the day and there was so much food in the basket, we could barely dent it during the whole day.
My only suggestion to guests would be to take precaution with the road from the main road to the lodge. This (at the time we stayed there) was a sand road and did manage to scratch the bottom of our low car here and there. Nothing serious, but definitely not made for lower cars, although a low car would still manage to easily get to the lodge.
The whole experience was extremely pleasant and we can't wait to go back!
"“Can highly recommend this place”"
We have been there for 3 nights and really enjoyed our time there. Margret und Joe are really warm, friendly and wonderful hosts. They will help you to find good restaurants in the area and also arrange safari trips for you. The lodge is beautiful, especially the view from the terrace and pool. The breakfast was the best breakfast we had so far and also if you have to leave really early in the morning for your da trip Margret provides you a really delicious lunch box. The rooms were clean and we just can highly recommend this place for your stay in South Africa!
The hosts give a warm welcome for the visitors and are very helpful with practical advices for trips.The rooms look out over a valley. The garden is wonderful and nice decorated. There is a swimmong pool. Excellent breakfast. The Lodge is central located for visiting the Panorama-Route, Krugerpark, restaurants and shops.
"“A Kruger Retreat”"
A well located and comfortable guest lodge, extremely well run,clean and relaxing. Joe, his wife and staff could not have been more welcoming, and made our stay very relaxing.It would have rated five stars if it was not for the long drive up to the property which was challenging. Great for Kruger Park.
This was our second stay, and our first with Joe and Margrit who took over from Klaus and Ridwan, lived everything about it, the rooms are very well kept, breakfast good, afternoon coffee/tea and Margrits home made cakes lovely. They are a lovely couple and will go out of their way to help you, see you soon Abangane
"“If I could give 10 stars i would”"
Absolutely idyllic location, Johannes and margrit are such wonderful and open hearted people they will make your stay so special. And margrits baking is to die for. Another advantage is of course that it is located really close to Kruger and blyde river canyon. Go here its beautiful.
"“Great Hotel & Amazing Views”"
The room was very affordable with great views and close to Kruger National Park & The Senic Route. The property was great but the lodge owners made the stay extra special. They even invted the guests to their local country club to watch the hippos exit the lake in the evening. Highly recommended for anyone not opting to stay in the Kruger reserve.
"“Very nice rooms, super friendly owner”"
The owner Joe & Margrit gave us a very warm welcome. The rooms are big, very clean and very well equipped. Breakfast was great. Coffee/cake is available for free during the afternoon. A well equipped self-service bar doesn't leave any wishes unfulfilled. We felt very comfortable there during our stay and can definitely recommend it. The owner are Swiss and thus also speak German.
"“Lovely place to relax”"
We (7 guests) recently stayed with Abangane for 3 nights, and the response from everyone was that it was an excellent experience. Friendly and helpful owners, a perfect setting, good service and attention to detail where it matters. Next time we will stay an extra day and use this to relax around the pool. Thanks again from all of us at 2Africareal.
Thank you very much, Margrit and Joe.
A wonderful place to stay. There was a warm welcome through the owner Joe with all the information needed. The room is spacious and clean, the beds are very good. There is a wonderful swimming pool with a stunning view over the country.
We had an excellent breakfast, cold and cooked and a real coffee. There is a honesty bar with different drinks and some very nice wines. Margrit, Joe's wife, bakes cakes every day, it's a must to try them, they are delicious.
The staff is very nice and friendly. It's a place to come back
"“Tolles Quartier mit familiärer Atmosphäre”"
Wunderbarer Blick von der Terrasse, auf der auch das Frühstück eingenommen wird. Schöne und bestens ausgestattete Zimmer (5 Zimmer). Freundliche Gastgeber, die für eine sehr persönliche und familiäre Atmosphäre während des Aufenthaltes sorgen. Ausgezeichnetes Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis. Guter Ausgangsort für den Besuch des Blyderiver Canyons und des Krüger-NP.
"“Afrikan Lifestyle mit Schweizer Qualität”"
Die Abandgane Guest Lodge liegt oberhalb von Hazyview in einer alten Bananenplantage mit Blick über die Stadt in Richtung Sabie River und dem Krüger Nationalpark. Das schweizer Gastgeberehepaar kümmert sich um das leibliche Wohl und die Planung der Tagesausflüge. 10 Minuten zum Krüger Nationalpark empfehle ich die geführte Safari zu den Big5. Der schöne Sabie River Sun Golfplatz ist nur 300m von der Lodge entfernt. Abschläge über Hipos und Krokokodile inklusive. Greenfee ca. 15€ (ein Schnäppchen). Auch die Panoramaroute zu den Wasserfällen, den Potholes und dem Blyde River Canyon ist von der Lodge aus ideal als Tagestour durchführbar!
This Guest Lodge is a great value. Possibly the most elegant yet down to earth place I have stayed. The friendliness and hospitality is top notch. You soon feel right at home. Joe and Margrit are excellent hosts and see to your needs. The breakfast selections were delicious.
Located just minutes from the restaurants and shops in Hazyview, yet feeling as remote and relaxed as you could ask for, this is a quiet oasis after your day's activities. Whether relaxing by the pool or enjoying the view from the veranda outside my well appointed room, I was happy I discovered this retreat. I hope to visit the area again, and Abangane will at the top of my list.
"“Eine herrliche Erfahrung und genau am richtigen Ort”"
Klein aber fein - was für ein Glück, dass die Lodge nur 5 Zimmer hat. Damit bleibt alles sehr familiär. Wir haben das sehr geschätzt und würden jederzeit wieder kommen. Die liebevolle und ruhige Stimmung ergibt sich auch durch das aufmerksame Management-Paar (Joe und Margrit) welche sehr sorgfältig am Werk sind. Was für eine schöne Abwechslung im Vergleich zu grossen Hotels und vollen Resorts. Und abends noch einen Drink am Pool beim Zuhören der Grillen und Frösche - einfach herrlich.
"“Go there - feed your soul!”"
I've just returned from my 5th stay at Abangane Guest Lodge and I am already looking forward to the next time. Yum breakfasts, comfy beds, fab views, bird choirs all day and super welcoming hosts and staff. The proximity to the Kruger Park and Panorama Tour is great. I love it there!
"“Wunderschöne Lodge mit einem traumhaften Ausblick”"
Wir verbrachten leider nur 3 Nächte in der Abangane Lodge. Die Zimmer sind gemütlich, sehr sauber und haben alle einen schönen Ausblick. Ich habe immer mit meinem Rücken in fremden Betten Probleme, aber habe in diesen Betten schmerzfrei und fest wie ein Stein geschlafen. Das Frühstück ist super lecker und mehr als reichhaltig. Der gute Kaffee schmeckt bei Aussicht gleich noch besser. Die Gastgeber sind sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit bei der Tourenplanung. Von da aus kann man ganz bequem Ausflüge, wie zum Blyde River Canyon und alle Wasserfälle, Gods Window usw. machen. Unbedingt auch Zeit für den tollen Infinity Pool und Aussicht einplanen. Wir kommen wieder!!
The Abangane Guest Lodge was the perfect haven for our trip to Kruger National Park. It's ideally situated for both Kruger and the Panorama Route. The lodge itself is breathtaking - gorgeous views, clean, safe and lovely rooms, a wonderful pool and most importantly the nicest people. The hosts were beyond helpful, organizing a guided trip to Kruger for us that was a phenomenal experience (with a great guide named Martin) and always making sure we were having a good time and that we had any and everything that we might need. Would definitely come here again and highly recommend it!
"“Paradise in the Kruger”"
Wonderful stay in guest lodge in which the food,service and vistas were second to none. The Rooms were spacious and had all amenities.....although may be a little dark. Close to the Kruger and also many good restaurants. Breakfasts were wonderful.....our particular favourite Was Margrits homemade muesli!
