A Conservation Entrance fee will be charged to overnight guests: R150.00 per Adult per night and R75.00 per Child per Night (4-12 years)

A minimum 3 night booking is required for peak season periods like school holidays, Easter etc.


African Spirit Game Lodge accommodation is intimate and consists of 4 quaint, fully serviced chalets. Each comfortable and stylish chalet accommodates 2 people with an en-suit bathroom, air-conditioner, mini bar, ceiling fan, tea/coffee facilities and a private veranda from which to enjoy the tranquility of the bush veld. The paths are well-lit and connect the chalets to the main lodge. One stretcher bed can be added per chalet for a child. Please note: There are no TV's in the chalets.

Our main lodge features a comfortable and relaxed dining room, cozy TV lounge, bar with viewing deck, open fire place attached to the lodge and a swimming pool with a thatched gazebo, offering our guest a welcome retreat after a day in the African bush.

Our meals are your typical South African cuisine which ensures that you will never go hungry and will enjoy every bite that is carefully prepared by our cooks.


Our self-catering units both have, fully equipped open plan kitchen/dining room areas with electric stove, microwave oven and fridge/freezer. All linen, bedding, bath towels, kitchen utensils, crockery, toilet paper and a limited quantity of firewood is supplied. Selected satellite channels and a decoder is available. If guests prefer full DSTV, they can bring their own card and decoder if "married". Please note: guests must bring their own food, charcoal, firelighters and toiletries. We do not have an open restaurant on the premises. Please buy last minute supplies like cigarettes and ice in nearby towns of Hluhluwe and Mkuze.

Guests can spend time relaxing in their own privacy or indulge in any of the activities offered in our area.

Guest Comments

Ons het elke oomblik by African Spirit Game Lodge geniet en indien ons weer in die omgewing is, sal ons definitief weer daar gaan bly. Dit is baie rustig en die chalet is baie netjies. Ons het elke oomblik van die game drive geniet en die warm handdoeke wanneer jy terugkom was 'n verrassing.

We spent one night in the 3 bedroom self catering unit. Our only complaint is that the stove top was painfully slow...took an hour to cook a batch of scrambled eggs !!
