About Warthog Lodge

Warthog Lodge offers you the best way to experience amazing African wildlife in the malaria-free Mabalingwe Nature Reserve - the playground of a multitude of Africa's finest animals and birds.

Self Catering Accommodation

Decorated with a distinct African flavour, this self catering house is fully equipped. Sleep under the finest Egyptian cotton. Enjoy breathtaking views from the deck. Go on game drives in your own private Land Rover (at an additional cost per day). Get greeted in the morning by a sounder of Warthog and experience the magic of your own open air boma lit by a glowing fire and the Milky Way.

Warthog Lodge consists of a main house with one bedroom, the lounge and dining room, kitchen, scullery, pantry, guest toilet and main deck area. This bedroom has a king size bed accommodating two people and is en-suite with an outdoor shower.

The stay at Worthog lodge was truly amazing. The view from not only the patio, but also the boma is special. What made the weekend though was good...
