Nkala Lodge welcomes you with a stylish communal reception area opening out onto various outside braais, seating areas and a pool.
The huge reception area consists of a lounge, dining area, bar and fully equipped self catering kitchen (with a creative young chef always eager to help with food preparation and cooking). All staff at Nkala are friendly and well-trained.

Outside the reception area are six spacious free-standing sparkling clean stone and thatch suites. Each suite is equipped with amazing amenities, uniquely decorated with thoughtful touches each with its own private patio, overlooking the tranquil bushveld landscape.

The highlight of this lodge is certainly the resident game ranger, Ella. She loves to share her knowledge of the local animals with you - whether she takes you out on a game drive or joins you at the lodge's look-out deck by the watering hole. Nkala Lodge has access to both the Black Rhino Game Reserve and Pilanesberg National Park.

A unique stay in the Pilanesberg not to be missed!

Room tip: not applicable - consists of free standing suites

A bush experience without comparison- the staff are efficient yet unobtrusive, Golden’s cooking is exceptional, Ella’s guiding outstanding.
Each room is private with attention to detail at every turn.
10 Star service and Lodge yet you’re made to feel like family.

A trip of a lifetime with beautiful surroundings, lodgings that are uniquely divine with attention to detail. Ranger showed us 4 of the big 5 and not from afar! This lodge is certainly a BUCKET LIST ITEM

Only 2 hours drive from Jhb yet felt like a million miles away. A bush weekend yet the lodge does not feel like all the other lodges - very tastefully done, stunning decor yet feels like home. Def coming again! My husband loved the the outdoor shower - I loved the bed linen. And best of all - saw the big 5 in one drive - magical x
