About Blyde River Wilderness Lodge

Surrounded by the tranquil Blyde River and the majestic Drakensberg mountains, this thatched lodge is set in a private reserve, in an area famous for its panoramic scenery, bird-life, fauna and flora. Nestled on the banks of the Blyde River, it offers travelers a unique bush experience whilst soaking up the beauty of the natural surroundings.

Blyde River Wilderness Lodge is situated along the famous Panoramic Route of Mpumalanga / Limpopo Province and is just a 50 minute drive to the Kruger National Park - Orpen Gate.

Places of water are places of life. Not only are the water courses of the Blyde River Wilderness Lodge well populated with hippo and crocodiles, the reserve is home to giraffe, nyala, impala, wildebeest, zebra, bushbuck, duiker, steenbuck, waterbuck, bushpig and warthog. The towering Northern Drakensberg escarpment provides a canvas for nature to capture a masterpiece with each sunrise … this is your opportunity to escape and invest in peace.


A blend of Contempory and African decor compliments the beauty of the lodge’s surroundings as well as being set amongst large majestic Jackelberry and Fig trees, whose shade cascades over the pristine lawn areas. Stylish rooms lead on to the Blyde River and include ensuite bathrooms and tea trays. Scrumptious breakfasts are included and candlelight dinners by arrangement. Enjoy sundowners at the pool with the sounds of the bush to keep you company or take a stroll on the reserve with the resident giraffe, zebra and impala.
