About Saragossa Game Lodge

Saragossa is a private game reserve tucked away between mountains and rolling grassland in Mpumalanga’s Elands Valley. It is located between Johannesburg and Kruger Park – ideal for international visitors to start or end their journey in South Africa and for locals for a relaxing getaway.


The lodge, the heart of the reserve, is surrounded by dams, streams, savannah and bushveld. The original homestead, built in the 1920s, was recently restored to preserve its old-world atmosphere and original charm. In keeping with the grand colonial style of the lodge, all suites and rooms are decorated with the same understated elegance of bygone years.

Up to 18 guests can be accommodated. All rooms have King size beds, Egyptian cotton bed linen, bathrobes, a mini bar, coffee and tea making facilities, a hairdryer, a safe and ceiling fans. They all have a private entrance leading into the garden and pool area.

The Suites:
The garden suites are suitable for single or double occupancy. Each has a comfortable and spacious lounge with a fireplace and private patio, a bedroom and an en-suite bathroom equipped with a shower and bath. All suites and patios overlook the gardens around the lodge.

Lodge Rooms:
Our lodge rooms are designed to accommodate one or two guests. They consist of a spacious bedroom and a modern bathroom with shower and/or bath.

Honeymoon Suite:
The honeymoon suite is a spacious, beautifully designed room with a freestanding bath overlooking the dam. It also has a bathroom and shower, a walk-in wardrobe and a braai / fireplace on the private terrace.

Freestanding Villa:
The freestanding villa is situated in the middle of the bushveld, a two minute walk from the lodge. It has two bedrooms with twin or double beds, a spacious, beautifully designed lounge with a fireplace, a large kitchen and dining area, a private heated pool, a sundeck, outdoor shower and firepit with magnificent views of the mountains.

Lodge Features

The leisure rooms include a cosy lounge, a bar with an open fireplace, a cigar lounge and whiskey bar, a wine cellar and a dining room. The spacious veranda looks out onto grasslands where animals come to graze. The lodge features a large heated swimming pool with Jacuzzi seats, a pool bar and a scenic wedding and events venue (Lapa).

We at Saragossa seek to be in harmony with ourselves, our land and our fellow human beings. We treat our environment and resources with respect. Most of our produce is cultivated organically and we aim to be self-sufficient. We protect the environment by using solar power, combating invasive alien vegetation, recycling waste and rehabilitating endangered flora and fauna.
