Get ready to experience your newest passion...

Nyala Safari Lodge is all about making you feel at home, so that you feel part of the incredible environment around you.

About

If you prefer to opt for an exclusive, self-catered option (available over weekends only for groups of a minimum of 10 people for 2 nights) then our wonderful kitchen becomes your own private hub and the heart of your home away from home, where lifelong memories are made along with hearty meals!

Luxury Chalets

Our five thatched chalets, known as rondavels, are designed in the traditional way and can accommodate a maximum of 14 guests at any one time. Constructed to be refreshingly cool in summer and warm in winter, the décor is designed to echo the wonderful colours and textures of the wilderness, with splashes of colour inspired by the traditions and heritage of the local Shangaan people.

Our chalets are celebrations of African culture and the incredible wilderness which surrounds the lodge. Plush cotton linen and hand-woven textiles complement traditional artwork and carvings, creating an air of authentic, practical “barefoot” luxury in each chalet. Soft white mosquito nets around our comfortable bedsteads and soft lighting add touches of colonial charm and romanticism.

Facilities

Our facilities have been designed to offer you everything to make your African safari experience exceptional, from our fully equipped kitchen where meals are lovingly prepared for you to our indoor and outdoor dining areas, our cosy lounge and bar and our tempting splash pool surrounded by beautiful shade trees and rolling green lawn, all overlooking the seasonal Mohlabetsi, whose name means “sweet waters” in the local vernacular. A waterhole in front of the lodge means there is always the chance to spot animals as they come down to drink from our shady viewing deck.

If you prefer to opt for an exclusive, self-catered option (available over weekends only for groups of a minimum of 10 people for 2 nights) then our wonderful kitchen becomes your own private hub and the heart of your home away from home, where lifelong memories are made along with hearty meals!

Dining

Besides offering food for the soul, Nyala Safari Lodge also offers sustenance of the traditional variety, with hearty, home-cooked breakfast/brunch after the morning safari drive and wonderful, indulgent dinners. Meals are served either in the indoor dining area or outside, under the vast African skies which at night are like black velvet embroidered with millions of glittering diamonds as the stars of the Milky Way reveal themselves…

Traditional dinner delicacies like braaivleis and pap (the South African version of barbecued meat and grits) and potjiekos (a stew prepared in a cast-iron pot) are regularly prepared over open fires in our boma, while guests relax around a crackling fire with drinks in hand, sharing stories of the days’ adventures with their guides.

Vegetarians are well catered for with some of the finest fresh local produce used to create mouthwatering meat-free alternatives. And our range of delicious desserts are fitting finishing touches to the Nyala bush-dining experience.

For groups on our weekend, exclusive self-catering option, meals can either be prepared in the kitchen or the boma. Nyala’s staff are on hand to assist in getting fires started and are in attendance to tend to daily housekeeping and kitchen cleaning duties. Tea and coffee is provided, as are two game drives per day and use of all the lodge facilities.

Hand woven textiles and colourful soft furnishings are inspired by the culture of the area and the Shangaan people.
Natural, organic materials like local wood and stone, as well as hand carved artefacts keep the lodge grounded in its surroundings, bringing the outside inside, creating synergy between the lodge and its wild environment.
The use of pith helmets as wall ornaments and classic campaign-style furniture on your chalet verandahs is a nod to the likes of Livingstone and Stanley and also recognises that a stay at Nyala is part of your very own African adventure.
The spirit of the early pioneer explorers is alive and well at Nyala Safari Lodge, with decorative touches paying homage to a time when the journey was almost as exciting as the destination.
