About Butjani Lodge
Butjani Lodge is an intimate eight bedded bush lodge 45km North East of Pretoria on the Dinokeng tourist route. Easy access from both Oliver Tambo International and Sandton and a twenty five minute drive from Cullinan.
Butjani Lodge is situated on a private nature reserve with plains game and a perennial river on the property, the lodge offers a perfect bush getaway. Our rates include dinner bed and breakfast and a warm welcome from your hosts Penny and John McDonald. Come and share this little bit of paradise with us where you will leave feeling totally relaxed and experience something special.
En-suite luxury tented accommodation in tents under thatch, on a raised deck. Single or double accommodation available. Look across the bushveld from your bath, or spoil yourself with an outdoor shower under the stars. Sip champagne on your deck as the sun sets on the western horizon. Relax in your own private chalet or join other guests at the lapa.
As the sun sets, head off for a game drive and sundowner in the bush. The evenings see guests gather around the boma for drinks around the fire rounding off the day with a hearty three course dinner, carefully prepared to satisfy your every need.
On-Site Facilities & Activities
Mountain biking or bush walks amongst the game are a must. A leisurely walk down to the Elands River, bird book and binoculars in hand is a popular activity. As the reserve is home to no dangerous animals you can stroll amongst the game in safety. Relax by the poolside at the comfortable lapa which is equipped with a lounge, bar and dining area.
For those colder winter days, come into the fold of the indoor lounge and dining room and curl up with a book next to the fire or head off to the TV room to watch your favourite DSTV channel.
Astronomy evenings are held at the lodge on a regular basis. Join Terry Leaver, an extremely knowledgeable guide who will assist you in unraveling the mysteries of the universe. Trace the paths of the constellations across the sky or find south by using the Southern Cross. Butjani’s clear night skies make this an ideal opportunity for your "eye on the sky".
