Set on the cool riverine banks of the Olifants River in the 40,000ha 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 5 Suites and 3 Chalets all tastefully decorated with African décor. Suites have en-suite bathrooms, air-conditioning, mosquito nets, lounge areas, outside shower, and private wooden decks with rock-pool-style plunge pools. African-meets-modern cuisine is served on the main deck high up in the tree canopy. The award-winning wine cellar complements meals and the Serenity Spa where you will be treated to the sounds of cascading waterfalls.
