Heerlik in die bos, mooi uitkyk vanaf swembad oor diere se drinkgat.

Hulle gaan opgradeer en verkoelers insit, dan is ek gou weer daar.

Lovely in the forest, nice view from the swimming pool over the animals' drinking hole.

They're going to upgrade and put in coolers, then I'll be back soon.

Hello Andre and Lillibet, thank you for such a lovely review. I'm glad that you enjoyed it, although I agree it was a very hot weekend. Renovations will start in March and one unit at a time will have aircons installed. I'll let you know when this unit is finished, so you can visit again soon. Kind regards Tammy.

Fantasties, romanties en lekker.

Die hele naweek was fantasties. Tamboti lodge 4 was amazing gewees. Die bed slaap lekker, die shower is lekker en ek is mal oor die uitleg van die hele badkamer. Die scenery is baie mooi en dan dis lekker om rond te gaan ry in die estate self, het baie diere gesien. Hierdie is beslis my gunsteling wegbreek vakansie in 'n baie lang tyd. Ek sal beslis weer terug kom.

Fantastic, romantic and delicious.

The whole weekend was fantastic. Tamboti lodge 4 was amazing. The bed sleeps well, the shower is nice and I love the layout of the whole bathroom. The scenery is very beautiful and then it's nice to drive around in the estate itself, saw many animals. This is definitely my favorite getaway vacation in a very long time. I will definitely come back again.

A lovely spot in the bush.

Unit 2 at Leadwood Tree Safari Lodge is ideally situated over looking an occasional river in the Hoedspruit Wild Life Estate. It has everything needed for a memorable break in the bush. The only shortcomings in the unit are the lack of airconditioning for the hottest summer days, and the accommodation for a third person is not at all great (a single bed against a windowless wall in the lounge - the third guest must also share the only bathroom which is inadequately separated from the bedroom by a wall that does not reach the ceiling and a concertina door that does not provide enough privacy). The unit is ideal for a couple, I would not use it with a third person again.

Oornag vir werk.

Vir 'n 2de keer was Leadwood vir ons 'n vinnige een nag verblyf vir werksdoeleindes. Die vervlyf is baie skoon, gerieflik en veilig. Die gasvrou baie behulpsaam en verskaf al die inligting vir hek toegang, ens. Ons verkies alleenstaande eenhede en ongelukkig kon ons die keer nie die een bespreek wat ons wou nie. Die lodges wat aan mekaar grens en vir 'n gesinseenheid gebruik kan word is egter nie so privaat nie en jy hoor jou bure (hulle hoor jou seker ook). Ons sal weer daar oornag as die regte eenheid beskikbaar is.

Overnight for work.

For a 2nd time Leadwood was a quick one night stay for us for work purposes. The accommodation is very clean, comfortable and safe. The hostess very helpful and provides all the information for gate access, etc. We prefer stand alone units and unfortunately we could not book the one we wanted this time. However, the lodges that are adjacent to each other and can be used for a family unit are not so private and you hear your neighbors (they probably hear you too). We will stay there again if the right unit is available.

Dear Karlien. Thank you for your lovely review. It is always appreciated, and thank you for booking with us again. My apologies about not having the Tamboti lodge 4 available for you. Hopefully it will be next time. Regarding the noise factor of the other 2 lodges which are adjacent to one another, we are aware of it and will be addressing this in the New Year, after builders and Festive season holidays. It is always a great pleasure having you stay.

Baie teleurstellend, derde keer gebruik en sal nie weer nie.

Dis die derde keer wat ek vir my maatskappymense daar boek. Derde keer wat warm water 'n probleem is. Die keer rapporteer Priscilla dat die drein van die toilet verstop is die dag van aankoms. Niks gebeur, die Dinsdag kry slegte behandeling en wil hulle haar invoice vir die drein ontblok. Beskuldig haar van vrouedoekies wat drein verstop, Priscilla is 'n nuwe mamma so haar siklus het nog nie weer begin nie, kan nie sy wees nie, wat sy ook aan hulle rapporteer het. Ons as maatskappy weier dus om die dreinontblok te betaal en sal nooit mense na hulle aanbeveel nie.

Very disappointing, third time using and won't be again.

It's the third time I've booked my company people there. Third time hot water is a problem. The time Priscilla reports that the drain of the toilet is blocked on the day of arrival. Nothing happens, the Tuesday gets bad treatment and they want to unblock her invoice for the drain. Accusing her of sanitary napkins clogging the drain, Priscilla is a new mom so her cycle hasn't started again, can't be her, which she also reported to them. We as a company therefore refuse to pay for the drain unblocker and will never refer people to them.

Good day, Bok and Priscilla

Thank you for the response provided.

There was, unfortunately, no mention to our housekeeper about the blocked drain as this would have been handled with utmost urgency. We have just had all toilets and drains serviced by the plumbers, which is part of our routine maintenance plan every 4 months. When the units were prepared Monday there were no issues reported so we were not aware of the blockage only on the day of departure we were made aware of this. After inspection by the plumber, woman's sanitary products were removed and were found as the cause of the blockage.

The communication received by you was to advise of the technical issues regarding Netflix, even when arriving to see what could be the problem there was still no mention of the blockage or any hot-water issues.

We have addressed all the mentioned issues to prevent future occurrences, I hope that we might see you in the future.

Kind regards,
Tammy

Nice location, but overpriced.

Contact with owner was easy via email. Unfortunately, wifi was very bad and not working the first days. After the owner made some changes, the wifi was working. Another complaint was fixed by the owner. We hired the apartment for 3 persons which I would not recommend. Because you really have a small space, especially on colder days. For 2 people it is better. But for the price asked I would expect more space and a better view of the surrounding. Now due to the gated garden and the carport for all the properties not a lot of animals will roam around your garden. You have to go into the park to see the animals, which are easy to spot. And keep in mind that the double bed is extremely high. Like 1 meter high, so you need to climb in.

Good day Danielle,
Thank you for your review, it's always appreciated. The very good ones especially.
I am sorry that you felt the lodge was not suitable for 3 people but you did see the size and the photos of the lodge on the website before booking it. I too made you aware that a single bed would be added to the lounge area.
The Wi-Fi was not a problem the day you arrived as my guests, still used it when they departed. I'm not sure why you did not contact me sooner if you knew about the Wi-Fi problem and your connection still persisted for 2 days. As I stated I would have definitely made a plan for someone to come around and rectify it, during my 2 day's absence.
The animals do roam freely around our lodge as I too saw the giraffe hoof prints around the carport and pathway area, other animals had also been there. You were aware that you could go for bush walks, self-game drives, etc, and that we have all the plains game roaming freely throughout our estate.
We certainly offer more value for money in comparison to booking a small Rondavel hut in Kruger. Especially the amenities you receive whilst here. I too discounted your extra 2-night stay due to the inconvenience of the Wi-Fi and the blind which I also installed on the window for you.
Kind regards,
Tammy

Good day Lochner,

My sincere apologies that you feel so unhappy about the customer service you received from me regarding lack of communication.
Regarding the break in electricity, it was beyond my control as we are all aware of Eskom's dire problem. When there is no electricity we have no cell communication at all. However, I did come over to apologize for the inconvenience caused to you because of this, the apology in person was not accepted by you, though.
Without any extra costs imposed on you, I located you to a larger more comfy lodge, namely lodge 4 than the one you had originally booked namely lodge 3.
The small instant hot water geyser system was explained to you, as we try our utmost to conserve not only electricity but water as well in Hoedspruit.
A little bit of advice to you when you book at other establishments in the future, is to ask them permission to move their furniture around from outdoors to indoors before taking it upon yourselves to do so.
The manhole plate that is broken on the roadside curb has been reported to Estate management to be rectified again and I will continue to follow this up with them until it is done. However, there is a large white rock there as well which acts as a warning to be cautious.

My apologies once again for the inconvenience caused by Eskom's failures.
I'm sorry that you think I was lacking in communication, however, I tried to communicate as best I could via WhatsApp as well as in person.

Regards,
Tammy

Leadwood Lodge has a great location next to the river and in a quiet part of the Wildlife Estate. We stayed in lodge 4 which as south-facing is cool in summer but rather cold and dark in winter. The other units have much better locations. Would recommend it for future stays.

Perfekte verblyf indien jy werk in Hoedspruit.

Ek het baie lekker hier gebly terwyl ek werk gehad het om te doen in Hoedspruit. Dit is slegs 10 minute vanaf die dorp maar dit voel of mens iewers diep in die Bosveld is. Ek sal graag weer hier bly wanneer ek in die omgewing is, vir werk of vakansie.

Perfect accommodation if you work in Hoedspruit.

I had a great time staying here while I had work to do in Hoedspruit. It is only 10 minutes from the town but it feels like you are somewhere deep in the Bosveld. I would love to stay here again when I'm in the area, for work or vacation.

It was very pleasant.

I requested an extra bed in the lounge area of chalet 2 and when we arrived there it was in the adjacent chalet which my sister had booked. This was a bit unsatisfactory as we had made plans according to original arrangement. The coffee in the glass container was hard and could not be used even though we noticed that there was milk placed in the fridge.

Leadwood Tree Safari Lodge 's response

Good day Sandra
My sincere apologies about the bed being in the additional second bedroom
I took it for granted that you would not mind spending the night in the room with her, perhaps I should have double checked with you, as she booked after your request for it to be put in the lounge. Again my apologies
I have a new housekeeper as my long standing lady passed away suddenly. So yes she should have checked up on the coffee in the container and she should have place the milk in the fridge. This is unacceptable and it would have been nice if you could have brought it to my attention as I could have rectified the above urgently for you.
Be as it may you did not bring it to my immediate attention ,but I will address the above with my new housekeeper.
Kind regards

Unfortunately the couple that had booked Tamboti nr 5 ,same as your booking did request to stay another night as they enjoyed their stay so much.
However the lodge that i located you to is are not smaller ,as it has a larger lounge area.The bathroom is probaly half a meter narrower that is all . You also agreed to stay in Lodge 4 as you were only staying 1 night .
I understand you were disappointed but , i try to keep all my guests happy.
I did offer you you a discount if you wish to book again,in fact I offered for you to have an extra night free if you are to return for the experience.
I am sorry you were disappointed ..
I hope to see you again in future

Glad nie tevrede met die plek nie.

Glase is vuil, die asblik was nie skoongemaak nie, daar was ou naartjieskille, en die bed - my man kon nie eens daarop slaap nie, te hoog en onprakties, en die oggend se stortwater was net warm vir een persoon. Die bank het gevoel asof goggas op jou loop wanneer jy daarop lê.

My apologies for the shower.
We will be changing the geyser to one that holds more warm water! However, we will still keep the rustic openness of the surroundings.
Our large communal pool has to be repaired due to a huge crack at the base.
This is why there is barely any water left in it.
It is winter and most people don’t swim in winter days which is why we have scheduled the repairs to be done in this season.

Ons het net een nag oorgeslaap, op pad Kruger Wildtuin toe, maar dit steeds baie geniet.

Dit was 'n heerlike ervaring en ons sal graag volgende keer langer by Leadwood Lodge wil oorbly. Goeie verblyf, vriendelike ontvangs, stil en rustig, pragtige ligging.

The most amazing place in the bush!

We were on holiday and stayed for 10 nights at Leadwood Lodge. Our lodge was perfect for the 3 of us, and Tammy's hospitality was more than we could have asked for. You are completely surrounded by the bush here with an awesome swimming pool to cool you off. Whether you enjoy a bush sunrise, or sundowner, Leadwood will have you covered. Can't wait to get back there!

Luuksheid vir 'n baie bekostigbare prys.

'n Groot lodge met alles wat 'n mens nodig het. Baie ongerepte natuur om jou en die bosveldstilte vir jouself. Baie goeie sekuriteit met jou eie sleutel vir die hekke van die kompleks. Naby aan lekker eetplekke en wildreservate. Baie bevredigend.

Privaat en rustig. Ideale plek om weg te kom van alles.

Ons was slim om die huis met die swembad te kies dit was vreeslik warm. Die buitestort was heerlik. Die kombuis is stampvol met alles wat jou hart kan begeer. Dit was 'n plesier om ons etes daar te maak. Ons het lekker gebraai en al ons etes buite geniet, lieflike tafel onder dak. Die huis voel asof jy in die middel van nêrens is, pragtige naggeluide maar tog is jy net 'n paar kilos van inkopiesentrums en restaurante af.

We were smart to choose the house with the pool, it was terribly hot. The outdoor shower was lovely. The kitchen is packed with everything your heart could desire. It was a pleasure to make our meals there. We had a nice barbecue and enjoyed all our meals outside, lovely table under the roof. The house feels like you are in the middle of nowhere, beautiful night sounds yet you are only a few kilos away from shopping centers and restaurants.

Het op pad en terug van die Krugerwildtuin af by Leadwood oornag. Baie aangename ervaring. Ons is sonder dat ons daarvoor gevra het (of enigsins meer moes betaal het) na 'n groter eenheid geskuif, net omdat dit beskikbaar was. Sal in die vervolg baie eerder by Leadwood Lodge bly en inry wildtuin toe elke dag as om in die wildtuin te bly. Tammy is uiters behulpsaam en vriendelik, 10/10!

Goeie verblyf vir gesin wat meer as een aand daar wil oornag.

Dis 'n baie mooi, goed toegeruste eenheid vir 'n gesin wat meer as een aand wil oornag. Dit is 'n moderne woning met al wat nodig is tot die gaste se beskikking. Stilte en rus na 'n lang dag op die pad. Geskik vir gaste wat die bos-avontuur soek. Die aanwysings na die lodge was egter nie baie duidelik nie, aangesien die lodge weg van ander woon-eenhede tussen die bome is. Daar is ook nie 'n pad tot by die lodge beskikbaar nie en ons moes ons bagasie oor 'n grondpaadjie deur die bos tot by die lodge dra. Vir ons as seniors was dit baie ongemaklik.

Good accommodation for a family wanting to stay for more than one night.

It's a very nice, well-equipped unit for a family that wants to spend more than one night. It is a modern home with everything needed for guests' disposal. Silence and rest after a long day on the road. Suitable for guests looking for forest adventure. The directions to the lodge, however, were not very clear, as the lodge is away from other residential units between the trees. There is also no road to the lodge available and we had to carry our luggage across a forest path through the forest to the lodge. For us as seniors it was very uncomfortable.

Thank you for your review it is always appreciated .
Regarding directions. Very clear directions were sent to you on sms and on WhatsApp .
Unfortunately we do try to retain the eco system and keep the surrounding bush as natural as possible , there is only 30 meters to walk to the lodge decking from the car park area .
I’m sorry that it was a bit of a disappointment for you with the luggage .
Take care.

Teleurgesteld.

Oulike plek met potensiaal. Ons het in Lodge 1 gebly. Lyk soos die foto's, behalwe die plek kort opknapping, bv. stukkende loopvlakke op die paadjie en in die storte. Geen verwelkoming, dus wonder jy waar jy moet heen as jy daar aankom. My grootste ergernis is dat elke kas of vol ander mense se goed gepak is, of toegemaak is met kabels. Daar is nêrens om jou klere uit te pak nie. Ek dink ook dis onvanpas om vroue produkte en onderklere in die laaie te vind. Ek het nie betaal om binne mense se huis te bly nie. Die kombuis se asblik kan nie oop of toe nie. Tammy het verduidelik toe ek kla dat ek hom maar moet ruk tot hy oopgaan. Die geiser het gebars en die kaste beskadig en hulle kon nog nie dit vervang nie. Daar word ook daaglikse skoonmaakdienste geadverteer. Dis nie die geval nie. Ek het met Tammy gereël en dan sit ons maar en wag tot die meisie kom, nadat daar gesê is sy kom op 'n spesifieke tyd. Wanneer sy wel daar was, word net die skottlegoed gewas. Geen beddens, vloere of badkamers was aan die kant gemaak nie. Die een skuifdeur kan nie meer oop nie. Toe ons vir Tammy kontak het sy verduidelik dat hulle 'n termiet probleem gehad het en die deur nou nie meer skuif nie. Op sig self nie 'n probleem nie. Dis net omdat daar geen lugversorging is nie, soek mens die deure oop. Die plek was lekker sentraal geleë en daar is heelwat wild te sien sommer vanaf die stoep. As jy nie omgee om tussen ander mense se goed te bly of jou tasse gepak hou sal jy dit hier geniet.

Disappointed.

Cute place with potential. We stayed in Lodge 1. Looks like the photos, except the place needs renovation, e.g. broken treads on the path and in the showers. No welcome, so you wonder where to go when you get there. My biggest annoyance is that every closet is either packed full of other people's stuff, or covered with cables. There is nowhere to unpack your clothes. I also think it's inappropriate to find women's products and underwear in the drawers. I didn't pay to stay inside people's house. The kitchen bin cannot be opened or closed. Tammy explained when I complained that I should just jerk him until he opened. The geyser burst and damaged the cabinets and they haven't been able to replace them yet. Daily cleaning services are also advertised. That's not the case. I arranged with Tammy and then we just sit and wait for the girl to come, after being told she would come at a specific time. When she was there, only the bulk was washed. No beds, floors or bathrooms were made on the side. The one sliding door can no longer open. When we contacted Tammy she explained that they had a termite problem and now the door no longer moves. On sight itself not a problem. It's only because there is no air conditioning that you look for the doors open. The place was nicely centrally located and there is a lot of wildlife to be seen right from the porch. If you don't mind staying among other people's stuff or keeping your bags packed you will enjoy it here.

'n Baie lekker en netjiese wegkruipplek vir die natuurliefhebber.

Dit was lekker om so 'n stil en rustige plekkie naby aan die dorpie Hoedspruit te kry. Baie netjies, skoon, en privaat.

A very nice and neat hiding place for the nature lover.

It was nice to find such a quiet and peaceful place close to the village of Hoedspruit. Very neat, clean, and private.

Lieflike eenheid in die bos.

Ons was aangenaam verras deur die pragtige, ruim eenheid. Dit is baie mooi en smaakvol ingerig met alles wat 'n mens moontlik kan nodig hê, teen vier-ster-kwaliteit. Dit was duidelik dat Tammy moeite gedoen het om dit besonders te maak. 'n Mens het egter beslis lugversorging nodig in die somerhitte - die waaier was ongelukkig nie voldoende in Desember se smeulende temperatuur nie. Ons was ongelukkig onder die indruk toe ons na die opsomming en foto's gekyk het en ons verblyf bespreek het, dat die twee eenhede aan mekaar geheg is / reg langs mekaar is en die swembad deel. Ons het dus aangeneem dat die gebruik van die swembad in ons eenheid ingesluit was. In die geweldige hitte was dit vir ons 'n groot teleurstelling dat dit nie die geval was nie. As ons dit vooraf besef het, sou ons die ander eenheid bespreek het wat toe nog beskikbaar was. Dit sal beslis help as dit duidelik so in die opsomming gestel kan word. Tammy was egter baie vriendelik en akkommoderend en het ons toegelaat om in die swembad te swem voor en na die ander gaste weg was, wat ons baie waardeer het. Sy was 'n baie aangename gasvrou en baie behulpsaam - sy't ons kom ontmoet net voor ons weg is en ons het lekker gesels wat 'n positiewe persoonlike "touch" aan die ervaring by Leadwood Lodge bygevoeg het. Die eenheid was lieflik, en daar was net 'n paar kleinigheidjies wat ons sou voorstel wat kan help om 'n mens se verblyf in die toekoms nog beter te maak: - Ons sou 'n klein asblikkie in die badkamer of kamer waardeer, sodat 'n mens nie net die kombuis-asblik het om te gebruik nie; - Daar was 'n paar hondehare op ons duvet - nie erg nie, maar tog 'n bietjie onverwags en effens steurend vir my wat nie 'n hondeliefhebber is nie. Toe ons na die ander eenheid gaan kyk het, het ons gesien dat die honde op die perseel heen-en-weer in die eenheid rondgeloop het terwyl die vrou wat daar werk die beddegoed omgeruil het, wat dit verklaar het. Regtig oulike honde, maar as hulle net buite gehou kan word wanneer daar skoongemaak word sal dit hiermee help. - 'n Bolaken op die bed sou wonderlik wees, want dit was 'n warm duvet, so ons kon nie daarmee slaap nie, en het die duvet-oortreksel afgehaal om dit as 'n bolaken te gebruik. Dit sal nog 'n bonus wees as daar ook 'n koeler duvet in die somer is; - 'n Bietjie meer pakplek vir mens se klere sal help. Die kas het net 'n hangdeel gehad met omtrent 4 hangers. Daar is 'n laaikassie, maar dis volgepak met komberse en ekstra benodigdhede. - Dit sou wonderlik wees as 'n muskietnet voorsien kan word vir die bed. Muskietgaas by die deure en vensters kan ook help, maar lugversorging kan die nodigheid vir muskietgaas wegneem. - Ek weet meeste plekke voorsien dit nie meer deesdae nie, maar ek waardeer dit altyd as 'n klein handdoekie saam met die groot handdoeke voorsien word vir wanneer ek my hare was. Behalwe vir hierdie paar kleiner dingetjies was dit wonderlik, en ons sal beslis weer daar kom bly as ons of in die winter kom, of die ander eenheid bespreek, of beide eenhede saam met familie of vriende. Baie dankie Tammy!

Lovely unit in the woods.

We were pleasantly surprised by the beautiful, spacious unit. It is very nicely and tastefully furnished with everything one could possibly need, at four-star quality. It was clear that Tammy had put effort into making it special. However, one definitely needs air conditioning in the summer heat - unfortunately the fan was not sufficient in December's smoldering temperature. We were unfortunately under the impression when looking at the summary and photos and booking our stay, that the two units are attached / right next to each other and share the pool. So we assumed that the use of the pool was included in our unit. In the tremendous heat, it was a big disappointment for us that this was not the case. Had we realized this in advance, we would have booked the other unit that was still available at the time. It would certainly help if it could be clearly stated that way in the summary. However, Tammy was very friendly and accommodating and allowed us to swim in the pool before and after the other guests left, which we really appreciated. She was a very pleasant hostess and very helpful - she came to meet us just before we left and we had a nice chat which added a positive personal "touch" to the experience at Leadwood Lodge. The unit was lovely, and there were just a few little things that we would suggest that could help make one's stay even better in the future: - We would appreciate a small trash can in the bathroom or room, so that ' one does not only have the kitchen trash to use; - There was some dog hair on our duvet - not bad, but still a little unexpected and slightly disturbing for me who is not a dog lover. When we went to check on the other unit, we saw that the dogs on the premises were walking back and forth in the unit while the woman working there was changing the bedding, which explained this. Really cute dogs, but if they could just be kept outside when cleaning it would help with this. - A topper on the bed would be great as it was a warm duvet so we couldn't sleep with it and took the duvet cover off to use as a topper. It would be another bonus if there is also a cooler duvet in the summer; - A little more storage space for one's clothes would help. The cabinet only had a hanging part with about 4 hangers. There is a chest of drawers, but it is packed with blankets and extra necessities. - It would be great if a mosquito net could be provided for the bed. Mosquito netting at the doors and windows can also help, but air conditioning can eliminate the need for mosquito netting. - I know most places don't provide this anymore these days, but I always appreciate it when a small towel is provided with the big towels for when I wash my hair. Other than these few minor things it was great, and we will definitely stay there again if we come either in the winter, or book the other unit, or both units with family or friends. Thank you so much Tammy!

Uitstekend, behalwe dat die kode nodig om die reservaat te verlaat nie betyds aan ons deurgegee is nie en ons uitgaan drasties vertraag het.

Soos hierbo aangedui was slegs die vertraging by gebrek aan die vooraf verskaf van 'n uitgaankode 'n groot frustrasie.

Excellent except that the code needed to leave the reserve was not passed on to us on time and delayed us leaving drastically.

As noted above, only the delay due to no exit code being provided was a great frustration.

Hi Johann
Ek vra verskoning vir my Afrikaans, maar ek gaan probeer.
Ek is so bitter jammer oor die uitgang kode, as ek sou geweet dat julle so vroeg wil ry, sou ek vir julle baie vroeg die uitgang kode na jou toe gestuur het.
Dit was een van die dae wat ek my foon in die kamer gelos het en dit nie hoor lui nie.
Meeste van ons gaste vertrek omtrent so 10:00 se kant.
Once again, I really do apologize for the code problem.

Mooi bly
Beste
Tammy
