About Mashudu Lodge
The Limpopo Province reflects the quintessence of untamed Africa! Ancient trees guarding vast expanses of mountains and bushveld, and hot, breathless afternoons, heralds the call of the nightjar, punctuating the cover of darkness!
Embraced by pristine bushveld, Mashudu Lodge comes to meet you with great hospitality! Ideally situated for that quick midweek or weekend getaway, conference or wedding. Only 1.5 hours from Pretoria, situated on the main road, breakaway quickly, without having to test any dirt or gravel roads! Under the beautiful warm African sun, Mashudu lends its visitor complete relaxation for body, mind and soul!
The Lodge is situated on 720ha of mountainous terrain with two seasonal dams; a true nature lovers dream. Our accommodation is in the form of ten Tented Chalets with twin outdoor showers that sleep up to six. Built in the bush, you will wake up to the sounds of the veld.
Our five double luxury rooms with en suite bathroom are within 50 metres of the restaurant, swimming pool and reception / curio area. These rooms are quite popular with representatives that need to be on the road bright and early.

The Limpopo province is a land of dramatic contrasts, characterized by hot savannah plains, mist-clad mountains, age-old indigenous forests, ancient mountain fortresses and the luxury of modern-day facilities. The present tranquility of the province belies a turbulent past, to which many monuments and museums attest.
The beauty and infinite variety of the Limpopo Province will not only delight all who visit, but will entice visitors back again and again! This is where you will find the Waterberg Biosphere, rich in beauty, fauna and flora, waiting to be explored.
Vaalwater, in the heart of the Waterberg, was established at the turn of the century, and is possibly best known for its game and holiday farms. These farms offer the visitor hunting, game watching, hiking and horse trails, elephant rides and much more. This is also the area where you will find Mashudu Lodge, just 15km from this typical Limpopo farm town.
Come and see Gods creation, come and live the Mashudu magic!
