Reviews from previous Awelani Lodge guests
“The lodge is well located, it’s a quite place for holiday and leisure. Several attractions within and outside the lodge. There is a need to improve customer service and especially when it relates to making movement of guests flexible within and outside the lodge beyond office hours. Otherwise we will recommend the lodge to others,” wrote bilisi on their TripAdvisor page.

Chalet well equipped and spotlessly clean with aircon. Big swimming pool and Lapa area. And only 12 kms from the Pafuri Gate to Kruger Park.”
