Luxury self-catering with wildlife on your doorstep

We’re delighted you’ve clicked through to our booking page and invite you to take a look at our availability on the table below. For the purposes of pricing, we divide the year into three.

Peak season 1: June, July and August
This is our winter season, but it’s the best time for game spotting in nearby Kruger National Park. The dry season in these parts typically lasts from May until September, meaning that the vegetation thins, making wildlife easier to spot. Also, the lack of water drives the animals to seek it at watering holes and from rivers, so they tend to congregate there in larger numbers. Those early morning game drives can be a bit chilly, though, so pack a fleece to wear until the sun warms up.

Peak season 2: mid December to mid January
This period coincides with the southern hemisphere summer. January is on average the warmest month, with temperatures hovering around the late twenties to early thirties. If you’re looking to spend time in the sunshine, take a dip in the pool or of course, celebrate Christmas or New Year in style, then we can accommodate you.

Standard season
The rest of the year we classify as our standard season. There’s no bad time to come to this area, with plenty to do whatever the season or the weather. The “shoulder season” of May and September gives you the benefit of weather that’s usually dry yet without the higher peak season prices or crowds.

If you’d like to make a booking, enter your chosen dates and click the search button. You’ll see availability and pricing; the rate shown is per unit and not per person. If we are showing as fully booked, it’s still worth getting in touch as we are friends with other private owners at the resort. Drop us an email at and we’ll see what we can do.

Payment needs to be made in full prior to your arrival as, regrettably, the Lodge cannot take payment on our behalf. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause but as a private business, much as we’d like to, we are unable to make exceptions. Our terms and conditions explain our policies more fully.
