Big 5 lodge offers a unique and unforgettable African wildlife experience. This haven of beauty and tranquility offers fully-equipped, self-catering accommodation for 10 guests at an affordable price. Its unique layout allows an intimate bird and animal experience on the downstairs verandah. Here you can be entertained by the mischievous monkeys playing in the trees. The strikingly beautiful zebra and various antelope including kudu, timid impala and shy bushbuck regularly visit the lodge to drink from the waterhole. Greedy warthogs wait patiently for any scraps that might come their way. Upstairs on the wooden deck you can watch the animals discreetly from above or you can climb up to the viewing deck and marvel at the panoramic views of the surrounding bushveld.
The lodge is a 5 minute walk from the Crocodile River. It is here that you can experience the excitement of seeing Africa’s greatest wild animals, the Big 5. It includes the lion, considered the king of beasts, the leopard regarded as the silent hunter, the elephant described as statuesque but graceful , the rhino with its dominant nose horn and the powerful buffalo with its horns of steel. The lodge is named after these magnificent animals.
The thatched lodge is camouflaged under a canopy of trees offering peacefulness and privacy. It is ideally situated for day trips to the Kruger National Park as the nearest gate is only 18km away.
