With less of a focus on luxuries like television and other entertainment, our Safari Lodge offers a much needed break from the busyness and rush of your daily life. With a breathtaking view over the Mkuze River beneath, wildlife all around and great company, one can relax and enjoy a true Safari experience.

We cater for groups of up to 8 people. Our Safari Lodge has 4 en-suite double bedrooms, a Lapha and a Bar for socializing after a day out in the Reserve. Traditional home-made South African meals are prepared daily for our visitors.

Guests can enjoy a host of different activities within the borders of the Reserve including game viewing, fishing, hunting, birding and hiking. A refreshing swim can be enjoyed beneath one of the two waterfalls within the Estate. Over 20 species of wildlife including Warthog, Kudu, Duiker, Nyala, Bushbuck, Rhino and Buffalo (two of the Big Five) can be found rummaging throughout the bush at Pondwane. More than 380 bird species have been recorded in the area.

We look forward to welcoming you to Pondwane Private Game Reserve – our secret place in the Heart of South Africa’s Zulu Kingdom.
