Reviews for The Yellow Hornbill

"had an awesome weekend"

Loved that it was near to all the amenities. Lisa was very helpful.

review by Samantha Adams

"Real nice"

With a family of 7, from ages ranging from 5 to 75, a last minute call, resulted in us staying at the Woodlands Lodge and not at the Yellow Hornbill. And what a stay it was. We had a troop of warthog at our watering hole almost every single day visiting us. It was really a peaceful and relaxing stay indeed. Will highly recommend it to anyone who loves the bush and just wants peace and quiet. The game drive inside the estate was also a great adventure, it was really enjoyable.
