Balule Nature Reserve
We recommend you try any of these highly acclaimed lodges while in the Hoedspruit area:
Sausage Tree Safari Camp
The elegant, tented suites at Sausage Tree Safari Camp are pitched under the shade of a grove of sausage trees, which overlook a dry riverbed. The main reception rooms offer inviting spots for guests to relax with a good book. A spacious deck leads out to a sunken pool, the perfect spot to cool off in the heat of the day.
Located in an exclusive private reserve within the greater Kruger National Park, Naledi offers its exclusive Bush Lodge, with three secluded suites set in atmospheric Kruger bushveld, overlooking a dry river bed and a waterhole. The reserve also holds high natural densities of Africa’s Big 5.
Nyala Safari Lodge
Nyala Safari Lodge is a family-friendly safari lodge situated in the Balule Private Game Reserve and Mohlabetsi South Nature Reserve, in the Limpopo Province of South Africa. The reserve forms part of the greater Kruger National Park, with no fences between Balule and the Kruger Park. Nyala Safari Lodge offers self-catering accommodation, including 2 game drives per day, with an accredited and fully qualified ranger.
Tsakane Safari Camp
Tsakane Safari Camp focuses on providing a classic walking safari experience and, therefore, our camp, accommodation facilities, catering and hospitality services are designed to complement your experience as a whole. We believe walking safaris are about establishing an intimate relationship with nature.
Greenfire Game Lodge
Greenfire Game Lodge is isolated and in a totally natural environment. A small luxury game lodge where no effort is spared, and the experience is personal and relaxed. Besides the Big 5, we are especially proud of the abundant bird life and smaller mammals attracted by the riverine forest and open plains.
Masodini Game Lodge is ideally situated in the 50.000-hectare Balule Nature Reserve, part of Greater Kruger National Park, to offer you a true feeling of Africa. A bush-lover's paradise within this 'Big Five' Conservation area, the Lodge itself is surrounded by fever trees and evergreen african date palms creating the perfect oasis. Masodini Private Game Lodge is THE place to explore wildlife in a private reserve. Watch the Big Five from our open game viewing vehicle and follow the animals through the bush. An experience you'll never forget. The wonderful bush lodge comes with an exceptional viewing deck, a well-stocked bar, a fireplace (boma) where you can enjoy your dinner under a star filled sky and a well known cuisine - offering a taste of the African bush feeling.
