Dawson's Game and Trout Lodge


A unique African experience

Dawson’s Game and Trout Lodge, a unique African experience in the Kruger Surrounds and Panorama Route area, offers exclusive luxury in individually styled rooms. Rich décor creates an African ambience with elegant bathrooms and cosy fireplaces. Accommodation is offered in eight individual colonial styled rooms. Each room offers en-suite bathrooms with elegant bath, spacious shower and heated towel rails, private balcony and fireplaces for cold winter nights. There are also two luxury farmhouses, the larger can accommodate 14 guests and the smaller accommodates 4 guests.

The culinary experience at Dawsons Lodge will tickle all your taste buds and you will marvel at the chef’s innovative talent while you sit back and soak up the atmosphere, savoring the taste and aroma of exquisite cuisine. Breakfast and lunch can be served either in the privacy of your own room, on the patio or enjoyed in our dining room. For a romantic lunch, our chef will prepare a sumptuous picnic basket that can accompany you on a self-drive outing to any secluded point on the reserve.

Finally, for a truly African experience, dinner can be taken in the traditional African-style boma, around an open log fire. Dawson’s lies at the transition of these two areas, “where the Highveld Springbok meets the Lowveld Impala”. Where dramatic mountains with perennial streams form the Komati River and the backdrop of wide-open grassland teeming with herds of buck indigenous to Southern Africa. A truly peaceful and rejuvenating experience to indulge the senses and soothe the spirit.
