Family with young children

A memorable and special family week in the bush.

A beautiful family reunion in the bush. Perfect for our purposes. The six ensuite rooms accommodated 9 adults and 4 children with ease. I would not feel comfortable sharing the facilities with strangers. We were unable to use the communal lounge/dining area, as the patio doors no longer open. This is really sad as it opens out onto a patio with views of the pristine bush, and it would allow airflow. Also, the huge tabletop is beautifully carved wood, but not usable without a solid covering of some sort. The communal outside lapa area is lovely and has a small splash pool. Due to the heat, this is a welcome relief. We enjoyed our evening campfires around the braai pit, kept beautifully clean by the staff member, who came in quietly at 5:00 each morning with a friendly wave as I was enjoying my morning coffee. We enjoyed our 3-minute walks to the river and meanderings along the Kruger Park fence. The kids and dads enjoyed their bicycle rides. Best of all were our daily visits from our warthog friends, mongoose family, and various buck. There was a huge kudu! The kids had a couple of exciting scorpion night sightings with their ultraviolet torches.

Horrible.

The place is deserted. Our bedding was very old and not fresh at all. The towels had a smell. Our friends who came with us refused to sleep there. The bed was dirty and full of small eggs. Never again. Our friends actually expect their money back. We have a young baby who slept in the room with us and she has a rash on her neck today.

Rustig.

Mooiste stil plek, waar jy kan ontspan. Naby aan die rivier. Bernadette is 'n sterretjie. Doen baie meer as wat van haar verwag word. Mens voel sommer tuis. Alles wat jy nodig het is daar. Bederf jouself en slaap hier oor. Veiligheid en die stilte is 'n juweel, met diere se geluide deur die nag. Was nie ons eerste keer nie, en ook nie die laaste nie. Baie dankie vir julle gasvryheid.

Most beautiful quiet place, where you can relax. Close to the river. Bernadette is a star. Does much more than is expected of her. You just feel at home. Everything you need is there. Treat yourself and sleep over here. Safety and the silence is a gem, with animal sounds throughout the night. Wasn't our first time, nor the last. Thank you very much for your hospitality.

Die natuurverblyf is mooi en rustig.

Dit was 'n baie lekker area, na aan die rivier ons het baie diere gesien daagliks — sebras, eland, bokkies, aardvarkies en die mooiste kameelperd. Alles is lekker naby mekaar en ons wil beslis binnekort weer gaan. Akkommodasie is veilig, netjies en kalm, ons het dit gelove, want daar was geen geraas van TV's ens. Bernadette is so vriendelik en haar ontvangs was regtig baie warm en ek sal beslis Serenity aanbeveel. Dit is ook naby aan die Crocodile Bridge om by die Krugerwildtuin in te gaan.

The nature stay is beautiful and peaceful.

It was a very nice area, close to the river we saw many animals daily — zebras, moose, goats, aardvarks and the most beautiful giraffe. Everything is nice and close to each other and we definitely want to go again soon. Accommodation is safe, tidy and calm, we loved it as there was no noise from TVs etc. Bernadette is so friendly and her reception was really very warm and I would definitely recommend Serenity. It is also close to the Crocodile Bridge to enter the Kruger National Park.

Baie gerieflike en netjiese kamer met badkamer. Alles silwerskoon. Lekker private stoepie met braaier. Alles is beskikbaar wat jy nodig het. Naggeluide was so mooi, en met diere wat kom kuier. So rustig. Bernadette is baie vriendelik, hulpvaardig en sal meer as 'n myl loop om haar gaste tuis te laat voel. Sal vir seker die plek aanbeveel.

'n Heerlike rustige kuier, het nuwe vriende ontmoet, gasvrou regte omgee mens, het my elke oggend ge-WhatsApp om te hoor of ek lekker geslaap het. Sal beslis weer soontoe gaan. Beveel dit aan vir enkellopendes. Dis veilig en jy sien baie diere.

Bernadette die gasvrou gaan absoluut uit haar pad om mens tuis te laat voel. Die kamers is skoon, netjies en baie gerieflik, die skoonmakers is baie vriendelik. Die gesamentlike kombuis is uitstekend toegerus en elke kamer (gas) het sy eie yskas-vrieskas in die kombuis. Tee- en koffiegeriewe in die kamers, gasstoof, mikrogolf in die kombuis. Pragtige grasdakstoep met klein swembad om af te koel. Diere soos Kudus, Vlakvarke kom soek kos. Het heerlik ontspan en as enkellopende vrou was ek nooit bang nie, ek het altyd veilig gevoel. Dankie Bernadette jy sien my beslis weer!

Bernadette the hostess goes absolutely out of her way to make you feel at home. The rooms are clean, tidy and very comfortable, the cleaners are very friendly. The shared kitchen is excellently equipped and each room (guest) has its own fridge-freezer in the kitchen. Tea and coffee facilities in the rooms, gas stove, microwave in the kitchen. Beautiful thatched patio with small pool to cool off. Animals like Kudus, Warthogs come looking for food. Relaxed wonderfully and as a single woman I was never afraid, I always felt safe. Thank you Bernadette you will definitely see me again!

Die instandhouding van die lodge word nie gedoen nie.

Die meubels is stukkend, die bed se matras is totaal lankal afgeleef, spinnerakke word nie verwyder nie, die french drain of septic tank loop oor en die ruik glad nie goed nie, die bedekte parkering is te min. Ek verkies eerder iets soos 'n chalet as om 'n huis te deel, maar ons verkies eerder om met ons karavaan te kamp en hierdie ondervinding het dit weer vir ons bevestig.

The maintenance of the lodge is not done.

The furniture is broken, the bed's mattress is totally worn out, cobwebs are not removed, the french drain or septic tank is overflowing and the smell is not good at all, the covered parking is too little. I prefer something like a chalet to sharing a house, but we prefer to camp with our caravan and this experience has confirmed that for us.

Ongelooflik mooi. Wat 'n ondervinding.

Daar is ongelooflik baie wild. Dit is baie naby aan die rivier so 'n mens hoor ook die seekoeie in die aand. Rustig en veilig.

A relaxed and stimulating break away to remember.

Serenity Du Bois Lodge, tranquil in the lush Lowveld, nestled in Marloth Park is a real pleasant break away. Bernadette, the owner and host at Serenity du Bois, made us feel welcome when we booked in. The atmosphere is not just relaxed but also stimulating. It provides a sense of freedom amongst the animals in the park. We enjoyed the quietness, the silence and most of all the comfort within the lodge. It was really relaxing to stay here and we will recommend Serenity Du Bois to anyone who wants to visit Marloth Park.

Ons het ons kuier geniet. Die dame wat ons kamer elke dag opgemaak het was baie vriendelik en behulpsaam. Net 'n paar punte (ons kla nie, maar net ter inligting): Ons het in kamer nr. 1 gebly. Die bed kan dalk vervang word, daar is geen spasie met 'n spieël en 'n muurprop om hare te versorg nie, die koue kraan van die wasbak in die badkamer lek, die een bedlamp werk nie (flikker).

Nie aan te beveel nie.

Ons het die Du Bois Lodge nie as 'n 3-ster ervaar nie. Gesamentlike kombuis vir alle gaste. Sou meer van 'n yskas in kamer gehou het. Kamers baie donker. Linne stokoud en nie wit nie. Kamers het nie bedkassies en bedlampies nie. Geen kaste in kamers nie. Lang stok aan 'n draad met 4 hangers in ons kamer. Handdoeke was geskeur en het nie skoon geruik nie. Ons moes vra vir toiletpapier in ons kamers. Geen plek om tas op te sit nie en geen plek met spieël om by te sit en grimmeer nie.

Not to recommend.

We did not experience the Du Bois Lodge as a 3 star. Shared kitchen for all guests. Would have liked more of a fridge in room. Rooms very dark. Linen very old and not white. Rooms do not have bedside tables and bedside lamps. No closets in rooms. Long stick on a wire with 4 hangers in our room. Towels were torn and did not smell clean. We had to ask for toilet paper in our rooms. No place to put a suitcase and no place with a mirror to put on makeup.

Ons het baie lekker gebly en baie diere gesien. Almal was tevrede met die ligging want dit is so naby die rivier. Die kombuis het alles gehad waaraan ons kon dink om te gebruik en die nagapies en muskeljaatkat wat daar woon het almal se harte gesteel.

Ongelooflik rustig na die stad.

Ons was vir 2 jaar nie met vakansie nie en moes werklik 'n plan maak om net 'n bietjie weg te kom. Die ideale geleentheid was toe my 55ste verjaarsdag en ons het weggebreek. Was rustig, weg van stad se geraas, TV, ens. Ek en my man het elke oomblik geniet en sal verseker weer terug gaan. Alles is ten alle tye skoon gehou.

Incredibly peaceful after the busy city.

We haven't been on holiday in 2 years and had to make a plan to get away for a bit. The ideal occasion was my 55th birthday and we got away. It was peaceful, away from the noise of the city and TV etc. My husband and I enjoyed every moment and will definitely return. Everything was kept clean at all times.

Ons het absoluut heerlik gebly by Du Bois Lodge!

Ons het selfs duikertjies met die hand gevoer op ons eerste aand daar! Nick en Bernadette is wonderlike mense en het ons baie tuis laat voel! Die lodge is binne stapafstand van die Krugerwildtuin se heining en die plonspoel is fantasties in die warm dae. Ons sal beslis weer gaan!

Fantasties, voel sommer dadelik tuis!

Weereens was dit fantasties om by Du Bois Lodge oor te slaap. Ons het dadelik tuis gevoel met ons aankoms en dadelik soos ou vriende met Nick gesels. Nie net het Nick ons kom verwelkom nie maar die bosbokkies het sommer ook nader gestaan. Die kamer was gereed, pragtig, skoon en gesellig. Beslis sal ek dit aanbeveel vir individue en gesinne.

Fantastic, feel right at home!

Once again it was fantastic staying at Du Bois Lodge. We immediately felt at home upon our arrival and immediately chatted with Nick like old friends. Not only did Nick come to welcome us, but the ibex also stood closer. The room was ready, beautiful, clean and cozy. I would definitely recommend it to individuals and families.

Ons het lekker gebly. Al wat 'n erge pyn was is dat daar net een braaier vir 7 kamers is. Die gaste wat eerste by die braaier kom in die aand braai, die res... "oh well".

Baie netjiese en gerieflike akkommodasie!

Akkommodasie was netjies en gerieflik. Die eienaars het baie moeite gedoen om ons tuis te laat voel. Dit voel of jy in die bos is, want jy kan nie die huise langs jou sien nie. Bosbokkies en vlakvarke het kom kuier by ons stoep! Dis naby aan KNP en ons het elke dag die park besoek. Ons kan Du Bois Lodge beslis aanbeveel!
