See what our guests have to say about our lodge and service:
Dear everybody at Balule. 1000 thanks for a magnificent, unique, amazing and unforgettable vacation.
Greetings from Henrik and Henriette. (And thanks for a lovely birthday dinner).
Even though we only got to see 4 1/2 of the "the Big Five" (The leopard was missing, but we saw 2 cheetahs) this stay has been a great success. Your kindness and helpfulness has indeed contributed to making it 14 good days. Great thanks to all of you. Kindest regards
Marianne, Mette and Hans.
What an amazing camp you have here, and what a great care and … you provide to us guests. Thousand thanks for a week of pampering on a high level.
Preben and Birthe.
Thousand thanks for 14 amazing days, filled with super experiences, good food, good wine, amazing surroundings and friendly staff. We have experienced a hostility and a feeling of belonging, which we do not often meet other places. Thank you for making this vacation one of the best vacations we have ever had. Thanks!
Steffanie and Thomas.
Dear everyone at Balule. There is no doubt that this stay has been our absolute greatest vacation experience ever. The combination of beautiful nature, exciting experiences and magnificent ambiance in the camp makes it very difficult to leave this place. We are honored to have been a part of Mombergs’ (the baby hippo) first days. What an experience! Thanks to everyone - guests and staff - for an unforgettable week.
Lotte and Emilie.
This has been an amazing week filled with exciting experiences, nice meals, evenings with great atmosphere - not at least it was great to hear the rush of the river all the time. A great thanks to all the staff.
Jørgen, Susanne, Niels and Liselotte.
Dear everyone at Balule. This is the 5th time at Balule and I am still convinced that this is the best place to have my vacation. Coming back? Definitely! (or whithout doubt)
Warm greetings from Ruth.
Dear everyone. An amazing stay has come to its end - unfortunately. I could stay at this place much longer. Unforgettable, life changing and beautiful experiences. In 3 words; I’ll be back!
Balule seemed beautiful and exciting on pictures and paper. It gave us great expectations. But this peacefulness and harmony, with pampering and experiences has to be seen, it can’t be read. Elephants playing in waterholes, seeing Big Five in one day, the exciting excursion to Drakensberg and the great service in each and every trip. That we felt like one big family the last evening in the Boma was such a beautiful feeling that it can’t be described. Thanks for everything!
Tove, Poul, Bodil, Søren and Frode.
Father and son traveled to South Africa with great expectations - these were met in full.
We saw Africa from its best side. The population, the nature and - last but not least - Balule. Place, staff and service were top notch.
We are traveling up north now with the memory of an amazing vacation. Thanks to everyone who contributed.
Thousand thanks for an amazing week at Balule River Camp. Thanks for lovely trips, lots of animals and good food. It has been a week with good experiences and lots of relaxation. Now I can go home to the everyday life with beautiful memories and lots of energy.
Dear Balule, Staff and others
Thousand thanks for a lovely week. I have never had an experience that in any way can match what I have experienced here. It has been amazing. There is no doubt that I will visit Balule and South Africa again. All my love
To everyone who makes Balule to what it is;
We would like to thank all of you for contributing to making our stay here completely unforgettable. We have seen, heard and experienced more than we ever could have imagined. And not only the wilderness and the nature, but just as much the people have been an important part of our experience. Thank you so much!

When we left we expected to travel out into nothing. But it turned out that we actually traveled into the very middle of; experiences, peacefulness, presence, luxury, good food, exciting animals, good company.

Dear everyone at Balule J
We have had a completely unforgettable week here at the camp. Amazing food presented by ‘the singing chef’, daily trips into the bush together with the guides where we have seen ‘The big 5’ twice, seen a lot of baby animals and learnt a lot about the African nature. There is an amazing ambiance at the camp and the employees have in their own individual way contributed to that we always will commemorate this amazing vacation.
Regards and thanks Marianne and Poul
Dear every fantastic employee.
A thousand thanks for an unforgettable week here at Balule. We struggled to find something negative, but we couldn’t. Everything has been amazing. Hugs and thoughts with the wish that you must continuously feel well.
Jessie and Ninette
It has been a wonderful week. We have enjoyed every minute. The food, the game drives, the pool, the guides etc. etc. We are especially pleased with the warm welcome of the lion on our entry to Balule. The leopard was not so bad either J We all hope to be back sometime and we will defiantly tell all our friends about Balule. Warmest regards to all in Balule River Camp. Ps. the champagne Brunch and the bush Braai were fantastic.
