About Komati Gorge Lodge
On the banks of the Komati River, at the base of a miniature Grand Canyon, this small village of thatched dwellings provides affordable luxury in a most dramatic setting. Only 2˝ hours from Gauteng, situated near the village of Dullstroom, Komati Gorge Lodge is a convenient stop over point from either Gauteng or KwaZulu Natal en-route to the Kruger National Park. However, to really appreciate the beauty of the surroundings and to experience Africa at its best, a 2 night stay at Komati Gorge Lodge is recommended.
Awarded a four star grading by the Tourism Grading Council of South Africa and a Superior Accommodation rating by AA Travel, this untouched expanse of 1200ha with its thorn bushveld and highveld grassland offers an unparalleled experience to nature lovers. The biodiversity creates a perfect environment for the prolific birdlife and a wide range of indigenous trees, shrubs and wild flowers. Game on the farm includes zebra, blue wildebeest, eland, kudu, blesbok, warthog, duiker and many more.
