Dinkweng Safari Camp is located only 3 hours from Johannesburg. We offer luxury facilities with the bush as your surrounding. Each self-catering lodge offers space and privacy with a rule of building averaging over 100m apart. These spacious 3 bedroom en-suite lodges are tastefully furnished, with private facilities including a braai area with its own fire pit, splash pool and extended viewing deck. the view from the deck overlooks the valley and incredible African sunsets. Dinkweng Safari Camp is a wildlife sanctuary in the UNESCO-registered Waterberg Biosphere in Limpopo Province. A wide variety of game can be seen on the property, including giraffe, zebra, kudu, eland, wildebeest, Nyala and many other animals. We also have breeding projects for rare game such as the Golden Wildebeest and Black Impala. All this game roam free in the same camp as the lodges so chances are good that you will spot them from your driveway or deck on a regular basis. Guests are free to walk anywhere on there own within the Lodge camp. Bring your own Mountain bikes or hire from the office. Guided game drives can be organized with the office for early morning or late afternoon. Dinkweng Safari Camp is a place to come and relax while enjoying the beautiful nature and peacefulness of the African Bush. The Lodge is not available for parties (matriculations parties, year end functions, birthday parties, bachelor parties or any other party ) as the noise disturbs the neighbour's and bush life. This is a place to relax and to enjoy nature, loud music is not allowed. NOTE: The main gate closes at 21h00

A lovely getaway place with beautiful Villas. The road via escort to the actual place is a little daunting but worth it. But it could be even better if the Wifi was a little more reliable and the food was better.

My wife and I visited Dinkweng for the first time. The accomodation is spacious and very clean. The drought is a challenge with very dry conditions. The food at restaurant is top class. We had a very nice dinner in the deck outside the bar area. Lodges 5 to 12 are well spaced and private. Lodge 7 has its own double carport - something that other lodges don’t have as yet. The deck is spacious with dining table to sit 8. The spa is unfortunately not up to standard - perhaps when it is high season is the treatment too notch. Staff assisted with initial problems with gas stove and were quick to assist. Unit 8 is evidence if active maintenance with all wooden doors, frames, and fence around deck having been sanded down, ready for a new coat of protection against the harsh sun. Nice walk to the deck with beautiful view. Read all the instructions you receive when your booking is confirmed. The 6.5 km from tar road to first gate is sandy with the rest if the way a steady (slow) drive. Our lodge did (for unknown reason) not have Supersport channels on first 2 nights. It was eventually fixed - only a pitty (or maybe not) that I could not watch the Springboks loose against Ireland in 2023 RWC. The kitchen is well equipt except for no place mats for tables and only one wooden board for hot braai bowl. A nice touch is spacious pantry where there is a picnic bag and blanket as well as two emergency lights for loadshedding. Every one of the 3 bedrooms are ensuite with both shower and bath.

Excellent accommodation and hospitality. The only snag with the trip is the last 20kms on the way are on gravel road which will require a bakkie or SUV. We were also lucky it didn’t rain as the road would’ve been difficult to manage.

Our group stay at Dinkweng was an absolutely lovely experience. From organising the trip, being facilitated to enjoying what the area had to offer - everything was more than we had bargained for; the staff was also friendly and patient. Each chalet was COVID compliant, safe, beautifully decorated, clean, well-maintained and offered comfort. Each room had it's own bathroom which accommodated the privacy of each person/couple. The surrounding views and the closeness to the bush (while swimming, you would spot wildlife only a few feet away and upon arrival we were greeted by a giraffe a few meters outside our chalet) was a unforgettable experience. The images online pale in comparison to the actual experience. I would highly recommend staying here.

Stunning views, beautiful relaxing accommodation and everything you need to have the perfect break. The only downside is the thatched roof with no ceiling - lots of spiders. The kids had a wonderful time, swimming the TV and wifi and the welcome pack with the activity books were greatly appreciated. Truly stunning with a wonderful relaxing atmosphere, just what you need to recharge your soul.

My first Bush getaway ever and the best. Isolated, with an amazing view and a private swimming pool, with friendly and patient stuff. Even though the last 10km gravel road wasn’t pleasant but got to the lodge and it was ALL WORTH IT.

Good day fellow Travelers My girlfriend and I went to Dinkweng for a romantic getway and we were pleasantly surpised with the professionality of the staff. We were treated like royals. We will definitely be back before the end of this year. Thanks to Nicole and Marnus for the great service!

The place is very beautiful and clean, with breathtaking views. However, the place needs to improve on the exit and entrance control. Guest can be spending when money when they need to go out of the lodge control system failure

My husband and I were celebrating our wedding anniversary and we stayed in Lodge no. 9 for a weekend. It was so peaceful and relaxing, even spotted some animals from our deck. The facilities were in a great condition and it is extremely spacious. It's the perfect place to go if you're looking for privacy and tranquility. Will definitely go back!

Maybe if the photos on the website were replaced with the actual photos of Lodge 5, people would reconsider staying at Dinkweng... The list of things that needs urgent attention goes on and on... A dilapidated thatched roof, spider webs around every corner, a cracked bath, worn toilet seat, broken lamps and other broken decor, a leaking swimming pool, dirty floors, dirty pots and pans, a fence that is a safety risk around the swimming pool... Not value for money at all and a total disgrace for the words "luxury lodge". The best part of the weekend was returning home!
