Cozy comforts and great game!It's what memories are made of...
Winter is a terribly dry season here in Southern Africa. The bush is sparse as there’s no rainfall to keep the vegetation fresh. It’s a challenging time for the animals that call Nyala Safari Lodge and Nyala Sands home, as they have to spend their days searching for food, staying close to our waterholes and dams which become a focal point for game. If you sit on our decks at Nyala Safari Lodge and Nyala Sands you’ll get great views of waterholes where a steady stream of game comes to drink throughout each day.
And there’ll always be a mug of hot coffee, tea or chocolate on hand to beat the chill!
We’ve got some great South African wines on hand too, offering you the chance to sample the very best of our legendary vineyards. Designed to complement the wonderful, home-cooked meals we prepare for you, we hand-pick our wines to give you the perfect cross-section of vintages and flavours. Or try our famous Amarula cream liqueur as a nightcap or in a cup of coffee!
Our beautiful thatched chalets are perfectly designed to stay cool during our warm winter days and make you snug as a bug during our chilly nights, making the coldest months of the year an absolute breeze. They’re also a great place to relax with a good book during the time between game activities, with their verandahs and decks offering views of the surrounding bush.
Finally, there’s very little to beat a winter sunset here at Nyala Safari Lodge and Nyala Sands, when the sky turns a deep orange and the dramatic peaks of the Drakensberg Escarpment become nothing but silhouettes. It’s what memories are made of.
