A full-board stay deep in Kruger National Park in a five-star boutique safari lodge with beautiful bush views – all travel and daily game drives included

The Mohlabetsi River’s name translates as ‘sweet waters’, an appropriate name considering the sublime views of its leisurely babbling currents from Nyala Safari Lodge, located on a private game reserve in Kruger National Park. Grab your khaki jacket and binoculars for twice-daily game drives, sinfully good bush dinners and restful slumbers in traditional rondavels with charming thatched roofs.

Just 40 minutes’ drive from the town of Hoedspruit you’ll find yourself immersed in the bush, with animals all around and your chance to spot some of Africa’s ‘big five’ right from the terrace – the lodge overlooks a watering hole where many animals stop by for a drink. Expert safari guides will take you out into the reserve to seek out elephants, rhinoceros, lion and leopard from the comfort of open-sided 4WD vehicles, designed to fully immerse yourself in the surroundings.

When you’ve finished exploring for the day, head back to the lodge for bush suppers around the fire with a drink to toast the day’s sightings. There’s a swimming pool for relaxing dips and big, cloud-like beds in your colonial-style room for a good night’s sleep.

Good to know


The hotel is just 15 kilometres from Hoedspruit but the drive will take at least 40 minutes due to speed restrictions within the park.
