Wow

Garden Route-South Africa

Loved our stay. Beautiful spacious rooms that offers allot of privacy. Exceptional service, excellent food and great safari. The lodge have a small personal feel. Our ranger Mino was so passionate about his job, the wildlife and was so proud of Shamwari and what they do. We will be back.

Amazing place!

Swadlincote, United Kingdom

We visited Eagles Crag Lodge as part of our honeymoon. Everything about this hotel exceeded our expectations it was outstanding! The staff were all fantastic without exception and couldn’t do more for you! Our ranger James was so enthusiastic about the animals and was vet knowledgable about anything you asked him! The food at this place was amazing can’t really say much more! The breakfast was the best I have had in any hotel, buffet spread and you can order a cooked breakfast as well! The finish to the lodge is very high end and you can tell a lot of money has gone into the decor and furnishings, it’s all beautiful! We seen 4 of the big 5! Only thing we missed out on was the leopard unfortunately but they are hard to spot! We will be coming back to this beautiful place!
