This spectacular lodge has just five rooms which means you get a very personal service in a 5-star setting. It's perfect mix of intimacy with a luxurious safari experience.

It's worth noting upfront that the rates include accommodation, meals, local drinks and morning & afternoon game drives, which makes things a whole lot simpler and let's you relax into it.

The five luxury suites are elegantly furnished, each with doors opening onto private a private deck. There's air-con to keep you cool and spacious bathrooms with both indoor and outdoor showers.

The lodge is surrounded by the trees of an old Tambuti forest within the Black Rhino Game Reserve - this is pristine African wilderness at its best, just 33km from Sun City.
