Just 5km away from the Royal Bafokeng Stadium, one of the stadiums that hosted the 2010 Soccer World Cup, Kedar Heritage Lodge, Conference Centre & Spa offers 60 elegantly finished rooms, 3 Executive Rooms, 1 Royal Suite and 1 Presidential Suite. 7 conference rooms, an open air Boma with a stage and a Chapel for an elegant bushveld wedding. Some 20 years ago, Recreation Africa purchased a portion of Boekenhoutfontein, the historic farm of President Paul Kruger. Over the years, adjoining land has been acquired, culminating in the consolidation of an area of some 700 acres, which has been game fenced and populated with a wide variety of game, including eland, blesbok, impala, bushbuck, nyala, kudu, zebra, blue wildebeest and giraffe. Invaluable environmental work has been done to remove alien vegetation and restore the wetlands which attract prolific birdlife. With a Spa in an idyllic setting, jutting out over a natural wetland lake teaming with fish and birdlife, it is sure to enhance the spiritual and physical relaxation you expect from a Spa in the country. The Heroes bar allows guests to partake of sundowners whilst watching the sunset over the natural bush. Other facilities include a large swimming pool, game drives, Paul Kruger Country House Museum Tour, Team building area, and open air conference areas. All this, just one and a half hour’s drive from Johannesburg and Pretoria, and only 15 minutes from Sun City and the Pilanesberg Game Reserve - home of the “Big Five”.

My daughter, granddaughter and I enjoyed our 4 days at Kedar Lodge in March 2024. I enjoyed the many historical sites, memorabilia, and information scattered through the gardens. Our rooms were very comfortable and looked out onto the bush where there were lovely birds. Giraffe and various buck including black impala welcomed us at the gate each day. I was most impressed with both Sarah and Robert Forsyth whose dad really established Kedar as a heritage lodge. They went out of their way to help get my cell phone to me which I had inadvertently left in Johannesburg. This was real dedication as far as customer service was concerned! Edward was also most helpful during our stay. Sarah took time to chat to us about the Lodge's history and her family's involvement in keeping South African history relevant. We were able to visit the Pilanesberg three times as it is only 30 mins away. What a pleasure! We had supper in Heroes Bar each evening and found the meals satisfactory. I wasn't well one evening and delicious soup and bread were brought to my room at no extra cost. We can highly recommend Kedar Heritage Lodge!

What an extraordinary experience! I was facinated with the vast amount of information and memorabilia of the Anglo-Boer War, Bafokeng, Tswana and Mzilikazi history and then had the delightful opportunity of lazing and dozing in our room with a view of the wetland! Driving through the game reserve with various types of antelope to the Paul Kruger farm next door was a bonus and the historic farmhouse made history had come alive. If you are interested in history this is a must!

Just spent 4 nights at Kedar Lodge. Staff are very friendly and the resort is easy to like. It doesn't have the corporate image of hotels but its individuality and the history available at the location is excellent to remind us of earlier times. Our main reason for staying here was to access Pilansberg Nature Reserve. It is about 30 minutes away and access is very easy and very reasonably priced (even for us international visitors)

I like the location of the property including the fact that it is in the bush. I had a nice sleep and felt stress free when I was there. The breeze and the trees are marvelous. The art and the statues are awesome. I enjoyed my stay.

I attended a Heritage Symposium last week, and arrived early to explore the area before the start and enjoy the venue. The Kedar team of employees are remarkable, everyone was welcoming, friendly and helpful. The kitchen team produced a feast for a group during the symposium. The lodge itself is special for a variety of reasons. The original Paul Kruger buildings are on site and you can arrange a guided visit. They have many creative memorial art tributes to a broad array of historical people and events. They have a range of antelope, zebras, wildebeest and giraffe, I really enjoyed my afternoon game drive with Alfred. Only 25 minutes drive from Bakubung gate I also took the opportunity to explore the Pilanesburg Game reserve. Thank you to everyone at Kedar Heritage Lodge for a memorable week.

We stayed one night to attend a function. The hotel is a real treat as i am a "hobby historian" and the public areas are interwoven with one huge private collection of Anglo Boer War memorabilia. Well worth a visit. Reception check in and out was very good, fast and efficient. The rooms were well appointed, large and very comfortable with a nice seating space on the outside stoop. All have aircon, fridges, TV (not that we watched anything), tea/coffee making facilities. Bathrooms have bath and shower with plenty of power and hot water. Restaurant was excellent with wonderful selection on the buffet for both lunch and breakfast. Food was very tasty. We had a Braai (or barbeque) in the evening in the BOMA around the open fire. Again the food was very good and a nice selection. If you enjoy history the hotel is well worth a visit or two. This was my fourth trip.

Situated near Pilanesberg and Sun City, perfect one day attractions. We did the Zipline 2000 and it was an awesome experience. A thing to improve is training the staff to know more about activities to advice guests for day activities.we learned the hard day to obtain day passes due to the lack of information from reception.

We had a very bad experience at Kedar. One of our packets was stolen from reception and an item was stolen from my suitcase. We left our luggage at reception at the receptionist's insistence. When I reported that our items were missing, the staff were quick to take offence - are you saying we stole it? - and were keen to blame us for the disappearances - maybe you left your things in your room? I then contacted the owner, Sarah, whose first reaction was "How do I know those things were ever there?" She asked me to send her a list of everything that was in the missing packet - which had mysteriously surfaced at reception with several items missing. I did so and I have not heard from them again. Their complete lack of care and customer service shone through in this incident, as well as in the food that was presented to us for dinner.

Dear Valued Guest, Please keep in mind that we phone you three times to report that your plastic packet was left on a couch in our reception, which we then locked away in the safe. We have your packet, as discussed telephonically, with all of your items. Please come collect it at your convenience, since the sweets, coffee, rennies, piece of unwrapped biltong, cotton wool, etc are safe in our care. You mention that you thought a toothpaste was taken from your suitcase, we will happily replace it with a new toothpaste. Looking forward to your next arrival. Most Thoughtfully, Sarah Ripley Forsyth, General Manager

I booked my sister a spa experience yesterday and her feedback was disappointing. The spa didn't have slippers, in this cold weather, on a concrete floor. Secondly, her picnic lunch was not prepared "due to the weather", and she was taken to the restaurant and left there forever without being attended to, only to be told later that she was supposed to have joined the buffet but couldn't anymore because it was now full. All I wanted was for her to enjoy her birthday but it wasn't to be.
