Experience excellence at iNsingizi Game Lodge & Spa

Insingizi game lodge

It was a beautiful warm and clear spring day when a group of us drove out to iNsingizi Game Lodge & Spa. The views of the countryside in the Natal midlands were spectacular.

As we neared our destination, we felt that unmistakeable peace and stillness that only comes from being in the bushveld. So, we were already relaxed and looking forward to a morning of pampering. 

On arrival, we were warmly welcomed by Jenna with a glass of Champagne and then were led off to change into gowns and slippers, in one of the chalets.  

These lovely private en-suite rooms with their own decks are set amongst the bush.

First was the foot massage in an open thatched area with a peaceful view of the bush before us and another glass of Champagne in our hands. The massage lasted 45 minutes and as we sat in comfortable loungers, some of us even dozed off.

Next, we were led to another thatched area tucked away in thick bush and open at the sides. This was for a full body massage with only the sounds of the birds for company. 

By this time, we were so relaxed and we glided to the pool area where we were served a delicious lunch of chicken pie with phyllo pastry, a vegetable quiche and lovely fresh salads, followed by iNsingizi’s famous brownies and cream.

Unfortunately, then it was time to make our way home and as we returned to the reception area we were offered a glass of Amarula and a square of fudge. Our only regret was that due to commitments at home, we couldn’t spend the night.

While any trip to a spa is a wonderful experience, this was doubly so being in the bush with the smells and sounds that only the bush can offer.

iNsingizi is also a conference and wedding venue with a chapel overlooking a dam, and various reception rooms available for different numbers of guests.  There are nine beautifully-appointed en-suite chalets as well as a self-catering guesthouse, which can sleep up to 20 guests.

Jenna and Nadia are so welcoming, accommodating and professional – an absolute pleasure to deal with as are the ladies in the spa. We had a truly memorable experience.  Thank you so much iNsingizi!

About us

Actually, Home Food and Travel offers a lot more than just reviews of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities.  We also visit great destinations, receive advice from interior designers and stop to smell the roses and taste the coffee.

Our team of journalists are seasoned travels and love visiting the myriad of exciting places around South Africa.  Whether it is off the beaten track or in the heart of the top attractions of the country, we’ll be there,

Home Food and Travel advice on finding the right accommodation

So what is the right accommodation?  Well more often than not, it’s your travel budget that dictates the type of accommodation that you choose. 

Expensive is not always better.  Our team at Home Food and Travel will tell you that they have camped in areas with limited ablutions and had a wonderful holiday.  They have also spent a night in a five star hotel only to be disappointed because their expectations exceeded the experience.

The reason for your travels will also affect your choice.  A business trip requires different amenities to a beach holiday. 

Our articles, reviews and experiences can certainly help you make your decision.

Restaurants with a good mix of service, food and ambiance

To my mind a great restaurant offers three things – excellent service, great food and a wonderful ambiance.  Of these, service is the most important. 

No matter that the food is delicious and the setting delightful, poor service can ruin the occasion.  However, great service combined with mediocre meal and a plane jane restaurant can still be a pleasant night out.

We’ve eaten in restaurants that are really dirty but with incredible food and couldn’t help but give a rave review.  We’ve also hardly noticed what we ate because the setting was just amazing.

However, the best restaurants come with the best of service, food and ambiance.

Spas are the ultimate relaxation aid

How do you know when you have had a great spa experience?  The answer, of course, is when you doze off on the treatment table. 

Well that’s our theory anyway.  It also doesn’t take a grand location with enormous facilities for a spa to be really good

A small, personal spa that is owner run can result in the best massage you have ever experienced.  However, the grand spas in five star hotels offer unsurpassed facilities in an environment that just makes the stress in your shoulders and neck melt away before you even finish checking in.

Adventure!

You don’t have to be an adrenaline junky to enjoy an exciting experience.  In fact, what are commonly termed adventure activities usually have incredibly high safety standards and unblemished safety records.

Ziplining, bungy jumping and shark cage diving are all very safe.  It’s just that our mind tells us we are craaazzzzyyyy to be doing this.

On the road to great places of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities

If you’re driving, be safe and make use of all the wonderful farm stalls that populate South Africa’s open roads.

If you overhear somebody asking a lot of questions or see someone taking photos of empty bedrooms chances are it’s one of our Home Food and Travel team members.

We’re out looking or those great places of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities.

See you on the road!
