We really enjoyed our stay in Turaco. The staff was super friendly and attentive, the room beautiful and clean, the patio and garden wonderful to sit after a long day of Safari in nearby Kruger. Food was great, simply nothing to complain about. I would recommend to book the organised Safari trip with a ranger which they offer. If you are lucky you get to see monkeys and warthogs in the garden.
After our vacations in Kruger NP, Turaco Lodge is now, for us, the best stop (almost 2 nights) . before flying home. This is the third time that we enjoy Turaco Lodge and the Marloth Park. We, my wife and me, love Turaco Lodge : very enchanting place, with beautiful and comfortable rooms. It was amazing the dinner that we enjoyed every evening. Another fantastic thing are the animals visiting the place. Genets and bushbabies are common visitors in veranda.
We had a really good time at Turaco loge. Especially the Safaris made the whole stay perfect. We booked half board. We can recommend to do this because there are not many restaurants around. The guest hosts did everything to make our stay memorable.
Paradise home away from home

The overall feel of the lodge is so homey and wonderful. Its definitely a home away from home. The staff was so friendly and welcoming. They were VERY knowledgeable about the area and the park, they even gave us some pointers where to stop when driving back home. Breakfast and dinner was homemade with love and tasted delicious! It's always a treat to have local cuisine. I will definitely be back!
Home away from home with great food, comfy bed and brill safari tours

New owners Marcel & Lizzie were as lovely and caring as Manager Maggie. We felt at home and even my last minute info about vegan diet was respected and great ZA dishes like stew were served for me next to delicious meat as the others told me :) . Place is cosy and the terrace really offers encounters with Empalas and bush babies, if you're lucky. The tour guide Tiaan gave us the best safari tour, more than we could wish for (he is the bird expert) . Rooms are big, bed is super comfy, common area is just perfect to chill and have a cold drink with other guests. It was the best thing for us to start our ZA journey! Just like staying at friends you haven't met before
Perfect Start to our South Africa Tour

I went to Turaco Lodge with two friends aged 30-40yrs old. We had a warm welcome by Danielle and Tony. The place is in good location (20min by car to Kruger park) and has clean facilities. The rooms we booked had good breakfast included. Recommendable place to stay if you intend to visit Kruger park.

We had a perfect time during our stay in Turaco Lodge. Tony and Danielle are such an incredible couple and hosts. We already miss the delicious dinner and spending some time together talking about our day at Kruger Park. Can't wait to go there again
Feel among friends on your safari in South Africa

From the first mail contact until our departure we felt very welcome. Two Adventure seeking and naive German tourists drive through the bush...The rooms are new, very clean and decorated in beautyful African style. Food is homemade and very good (especially Danielle´s homemade icecream!). Nice South African wine, cold beer and soft drinks, coffee and tea in the room. Kudus, Zebras and bushbabies in the garden, Giraffes and Gnus on the road when you go for a walk through Marloth Park, Elephants, Rhinos and Hippos in sight while you are sitting on a bench in Marloth Park, sipping a nice glass of wine or a cool beer. What else do you need? We had dinner together with the other international guests and our landlords so we learned a lot about South Africa, the history, the political and social situation and other things. Tony organized whatever we needed: tours through Kruger Park and Marloth Park, recommendations of certain sites and even a very prompt car exchange since our car broke down. We felt save, welcome and definitely will come back! And we will recommend to all our German friends, even to those who do not speak English. Danielle and Tony will manage. Many thanks

Tony and Danielle were amazing. Always concerned about your trip, always trying to help and make your experience better. The room is really comfortable, with a big bed, nice shower and TV. The dinner and the breakfast are really good, with all fresh food made by Danielle everyday. I wish I could stay more, it was a nice experience, nice conversations at the table and the opportunity to meet new people from anywhere !

We crossed the Mozambican border late at night & arrived at Turaco to a delicious cold supper in our rooms. Danielle really didn't have to do that but we were so grateful. In the morning, we saw just how beautiful the lodge was! And had a hearty breakfast before getting on the road again. We had a lovely chat to Tony about the bush before we left. Informative! Such a welcoming place, would highly recommend it!

Enjoyed 2 great days in Kruger Park. Tony and Danielle arranged a night tour and full day safari for me and my friend on only two days notice which was fantastic. Staying at the lodge was very comfortable and Tony and Danielle were so kind and amazing hosts.
