Award-winning lodge in Balule

Set on the cool riverine banks of the Olifants River in the 40,000-hectare Balule Private Nature Reserve inside the greater Kruger National Park, Pondoro Game Lodge offers its visitors comfort, sophistication, elegance and a truly unforgettable African safari.

Enjoy daily morning and evening safaris in open vehicles that will venture off-road and seek out the Big 5 and other plains game. The vehicles are limited and only two are allowed at a sighting, so exclusivity is ensured. Plus: you'll have the expert guidance of Pondoro's rangers and trackers. 

This small, exclusive lodge has five Suites and three Chalets, as well as a Treehouse Hide, all tastefully decorated with African décor. Suites have en-suite bathrooms, air conditioning, mosquito nets, lounge areas, outside showers and private wooden decks with rock-pool-style plunge pools. African-meets-modern cuisine is served on a main deck high up in the tree canopy. The award-winning wine cellar complements meals, and the Serenity Spa is yours to enjoy, while treated to the sounds of cascading waterfalls.
