With oversized patios and views into the Park, your elevated tent & private patio is both spacious and indulgent, with all the amenities youโ€™ll need for your stay with us. There is no better place for relaxation in the African bush.

Each of the custom-designed tents have en-suite bathrooms, and can comfortably sleep a family of four.

The use of canvas and natural timber materials gives each tent a true safari feel. The interior palette takes inspiration from the tones and textures found in the surrounding natural environment.

The ambience of the tents and main areas is created through a carefully curated fusion of raw timbers and canvas textures with the authentic charm of Siswati tradition. Each area of the lodge is designed to create a feeling of being connected to nature, whether indoors or outdoors. The deck, restaurant, boma and oversized infinity swimming pool are cleverly positioned through their open architecture and proximity to the lodgeโ€™s fence line to allow guests to find their quiet space while a herd of elephant or buffalo amble past to the river that lies adjacent to the fence line.
