Over Iketla Lodge

Our favorite
Iketla Lodge is prachtig gelegen in een privé-natuurreservaat nabij de Blyde River Canyon. De ongerepte Afrikaanse wildernis en inheemse flora zijn een paradijs voor meer dan 200 verschillende vogelsoorten en talrijke dieren. De lodge is een uitstekende uitvalsbasis om de Panorama-route te verkennen en beschikt over een zwembad en restaurant. De in Afrikaanse stijl ingerichte chalets liggen verspreid over het terrein, zodat uw privacy is gewaarborgd. In de directe omgeving kunt u diverse wandelingen maken, vogelspotten of wegdromen van het uitzicht op uw privé-terras.

De Panorama-route ligt in het noordoosten van Zuid-Afrika en loopt langs spectaculaire vergezichten en bijzondere natuurverschijnselen. Van watervallen tot een canyon, van diepe kloven tot panoramische vergezichten. Aan de Panorama-route vindt u al deze natuurwonderen in de meest groene kleuren. De route krijgt namelijk redelijk veel regen; in het plaatsje Graskop valt meer dan 1200 mm per jaar. 

"a real disappointment!"

We first stayed in Iketla three years ago, when the new owners had just taken over, and we loved it. So, despite the fact the prices had more or less doubled, we were really looking forward to going back. But, what a disappointment! It all started badly. We arrived a little early, and, instead of being told we could wait by the pool until our rooms were ready, we were made to feel extremely unwelcome and actually went away until we were "allowed" to check in. My husband, who was so looking forward to running on the trails again, read with dismay the new "rules" about no running in the bush (despite the owners riding their horses there...), exact times to walk, etc etc. In fact rules are foremost here now and the guests are pretty much tolerated as long as we abide by them. Dinner is at 7 o'clock sharp, and if you arrive 5 minutes before, you aren't allowed a drink. The dinner itself is a very regimented affair: the cook announces the dishes in an almost ceremonial way (and given the very ordinary fare this in itself is a joke!), and we were made to feel uncomfortable if we lingered over the courses, while the waitresses looked at their smartphones, obviously wanting to go home. We were the last to leave the dining room (at 8:15) and felt we had very much overstayed our welcome. Like three years ago, our flight home was late the next night, so we asked if, after checking out, we could stay by the pool or reception and chill before the journey back, as we'd done the last time. The employee said she would check with her boss, and this time of course the answer was no. It was all rather humiliating, and I suggest the establishment rename itself. A lodge is far too friendly a word for this place, and, as for "Iketla", meaning "relax", according to the website, well, I'll leave you to guess how inappropriate this seems!

"Prison camp"

We stayed here a few days for the famous Panorama Route. The cabins are great in a very nice setting. But the rules for e.g. diner are much too strict. And the German owner found it necessary to share his fascist/racist ideas with the guests, very uncomfortable.

"Not too good"

Our last night in SA we stayed at Iketla Lodge. After a 2,5 hour drive, we arrived at lunch time. However, they decided to close the kitchen and we could not get any food.. 'because it was quiet, we closed the kitchen'. How can you do that if you expect guests?? The room is amazing, great view and nice bathroom. One note, there is no curtain in front of the door (for the outside shower), which is pretty annoying if the sun rises at 04:30 am. The dinner is not that good, there is no menu except for a 2 choice, pre-defined menu where the only difference is the main course. There were 8 pieces of bread for 13 people. And please play some music in the restaurant. All together we were not satisfied and will not book this lodge again.

"Cozy Place - Perfect for Panorama Route"

Very nice cozy place which is hidden on the countryside. The lodge has everything you need for your stay: clean, comfortable rooms (incl. in- and outdoorshower, AC, safe, toilet etc.), a bar, small pool with deck chairs, open diningroom (great food for breakfast and dinner - optional for lunch) and a small souvenir shop. Regarding 2 aspects mentioned in other reviews: 1. Yes, the way from the mainstreet is a ca. 2 KM not tarred road - however this is no problem at all and can be managed with every car. 2. Yes, the rooms do have a bit a smell. But you only realize it at the beginning and it does not stick to your clothes. We can highly recommend this place.

"Nature with great views and very nice accommodation."

Iketla Lodge is very, very beautiful. The location and the views are one of the best during our long trip in South Africa. We loved the views of the outdoor shower ( there is also an indoor shower but we did not use ours ). Very nicely appointed rooms. Gardens very well kept, very good lounge with again: amazing views! If you would like to have lunch when you arrive, please don't forget to let this know in advance, as we forgot this so there was no food available when we arrived between one and two, with the first restaurant about half an hour away. Food at breakfast and dinner at the lodge is good. We have enjoyed our stay very much. The two lovely living doll ladies who will host you are so fiercely fabulously friendly, it is an experience in itself. Highly recommended!
