    Fugitives' Drift Lodge

  • THIS PLACE IS ENCHANTING... breathing life back into ones soul with unending sceneries tied in with a great staff- especially the story telling & historian linguistics of our guides who have an unmatched skill, of bringing alive the Events that unfolded through the valleys and Mountains here at Rorkes drift area so many years ago. No wonder a head stand was the first event of our stay. Enjoy yours... Read More

    Fugitives' Drift Lodge

  • Superb location, exceptional hospitality, delightful experience in every way. Andrew is a gracious host and the setting, service and warmth combined for a memorable stay and dining experience. The House is also situated on one of the prettiest viewpoints overlooking the valley towards Uniondale in Plett. It's a favorite stop along the Alkantmooi MTB route (for the cyclists out there) and the freshly baked carrot cake is a must.... Read More

    Fairview House

  • Excellent game lodge in a private reserve. A real treat of a place to stay. Staff are excellent; always there to assist but without being in your face. The 2 game drives are brilliant and led by knowledgable guides who clearly care for the animals and love what their work, (but who wouldn’t!) Food and drink are both of a high standard. Breakfast, lunch, dinner, even afternoon tea are... Read More

    Leopard Mountain Lodge

  • Thank you, we had the most wonderful stay. We stayed with friends in the Burchells cottage with breathtaking views of the Spioenkop reserve. The surroundings are just incredible and we enjoyed every moment. The interior was lovely, we enjoyed all the amenities and the wonderful fireplace for the cosy evenings. The outside ‘stoep’ was our favourite place for afternoon drinks. The old-world charm of the main lodge area with... Read More

    Three Tree Hill Lodge

  • If there was a way to give six stars, this place would deserve it. The staff is super nice, we had an amazing time on our camp drives, both because of the landscape and our amazing driver (thanks, Alex! ♡) When we were shown our rooms, saying we were baffled would be one hell of an understatement. A more traditional African "setting" with all the advantages of modern life.... Read More

    Leopard Mountain Lodge

  • Top class and definitely the best lodge in the area. Great for honeymoon couples as well as families with slightly older kids. This seems to be a popular destination for tourists looking for an upmarket 'all in one' venue ( sea, beach and bush). Highly recommend!

    Makakatana Bay Lodge

  • “Everything was at it’s best, the rooms were clean, beds comfortable oh don’t want to talk about the pillows. Good was nice, their breakfast is excellent. Love everything about this place ”

Family Holiday Treasures Worth Seeking at Our South African Safari Lodges

When it comes to family holidays in South Africa, deciding where to go can be tricky. Some of us just want to laze around the poolside at a safari lodge with a mandatory mimosa in hand. While others much prefer to stay active and venture out on guided safari walks or frolic with resident dolphins in the bay. And then there’s always that one family member who simply wants to be left...
