BREAKFAST & DINING
For those staying on a Bed & Breakfast basis a sumptuous breakfast is served on the verandah amongst the trees at the Main Lodge. Our breakfasts are known to cause our guests to "skip" lunch ...
You won’t lose out should you be doing an early morning safari as we provide you with a breakfast hamper to keep you going. As we are on the Lowveld Gourmet Restaurant Route we do not do dinners (why compete) and we encourage our guests to take advantage of the gastronomical delights awaiting you locally all within 5 kms radius of us. Summerfields as well as Olivers are just 2 award winning restaurants on the Lowveld Gourmet Restaurant Route.

As Blue Jay Lodge is centrally located in Hazyview, Mpumalanga, on the edge of Kruger National Park, an early morning game drive is within easy reach. Phabeni Gate is a mere 10 minute drive away and Kruger Gate a 30 minute drive away.
