WELCOME TO THOKOZANI LODGE We are offering accommodation in charming houses nestled in a subtropical garden with huge old trees. Enjoy a drink on the terrace while watching the sunset or sit under the stars and listen to the sound of the bush crickets or the call of the wood owl. As a native German, I bought the Thokozani Lodge with my wife back in 2009 and we emigrated directly to South Africa. In previous years, we explored Southern Africa extensively, by travelled through Namibia, Botswana and South Africa. Through our experience with the cultures and the beauty of the Fauna and Flora we took the decision, to make South Africa our new home. We can now, enjoy the nature and wildlife at our doorstep close to the Kruger National Park. The Thokozani Lodge was built in the typical African architectural design with thatch roof in 1926. The Jatinga street where the lodge is situated, was named after the English officer’s that settled down after finishing their service in India. The lodge was built in a crescent shape and was known as the “halfmoon cottage”. Through the years numerous renovations was done, but the old charm has not been lost. All of the rooms and the stoep areas, are facing West, to assure a beautiful sunset.

We will definitely book here again. The place is beautiful with large trees and gardens, and peaceful atmosphere. Holgar is an excellent host. It would be a suitable venue for a small event as there is a large open space and even a swimming pool.

Easily reached from Jo'burg airport, not having to drive quick in a rush to get there. Lovely accommodation and the breakfast was good, similar to what might be served in Europe. It has a nice swimming pool too.

This is an exceptional lodge tended with great care by the owner who personally looks after the guests and is always happy to share his knowledge of the area. The pool is especially lovely and is surrounded by beautifully maintained gardens. Wonderfully tranquil.

Kruger National Park, South Africa1 contribution
What a lucky find we made. We stayed 4 nights before entering Kruger. The host and staff could not have been better. First off, I've not seen such a wonderful setting in ages; such beautiful grounds. We spent hours with a tree book just walking around to identify all the plantings,..then to the pool. We had a small problem with vehicle, but the host made everything perfect. We are in Kruger now, but plan to extend our visit and return to Thokozani and tour the beautiful region. Thanks Holger and staff!

Pretoria, South Africa1 contribution
Being told that I booked for three people just on my arrival when in actual fact the booking was for four people dampened my mood and spirit - if it was possible, I could have checked out immediately. Nothing could ever fix that irrespective of how it is presented - because it makes me look like a liar and further it removes the same trust I had with the establishment.

Johannesburg, South Africa1 contribution
The place is like a diamond in the rough. If you’re looking for a quiet, safari like getaway, this is the place to be. Right in the heart of nature. For us who stay in the busy city of Johannesburg, we definitely felt the fresh ambience of nature and it got us recharged and ready to get back to city.
