Discover the spirit of Africa at a private wildlife reserve bordering the mighty Kruger National Park – includes breakfast, lunch and dinner, plus daily game drives

  • Daily game drives in the 20,000-acre private reserve will take you up close to the iconic Big Five living in this wild pocket of South Africa, potentially glimpsing everything from lions, giraffes and leopards to rhinos, elephants and buffalo.

  • Nestled among the dense African bushveld, this rustic lodges and chalets overlook a natural watering hole where the four-legged locals come to refuel, while private viewing decks take in the wild, untamed vistas unfurling into the distance.

  • Carved into the rocky hillside, two outdoor swimming pools offer great views across the African wilderness – the perfect place for a dip on a sultry afternoon. And when the sun goes down, relax around a fire in the traditional boma to a soundtrack of local wildlife before tucking into traditional dishes prepared over the flames.

  • Combine your African adventure with a relaxing spa treatment, picking from a menu of massages, body wraps, masks and exfoliations – perfect for a post-sun pick-me-up.

  • Overlooking the majestic peaks of the Malelane mountains, Bongani Mountain Lodge is set in the Mthetomusha Game Reserve, edging the southwestern border of the mighty Kruger National Park. For a change from wildlife-viewing from the back of an open Land Rover, hop down for a guided bush walk to follow in the footsteps of the San (Bushmen) people, who lived here over 1,000 years ago. Led by local experts, you’ll stumble across some of the 250 San rock art sites dotted across the reserve, while seeing some of the majestic creatures at eye level.
