About Zandibela Private Game Lodge
Zandibela Private Game Lodge, bordering on the Baviaanskloof in the Eastern Cape and the Western Cape, offers wide open spaces, absolute peace in beautiful surroundings, with a variety of activities on offer - all an easy drive from the bustling town of George on the Garden Route. Zandibela is a place where you can relax and recharge tired bodies, reconnect with family and friends and enjoy as much adventure as the mood takes you, with all the luxurious comforts of a five star establishment.
A winding bush track takes you through the gates and to lodge, situated on a hilltop with views across the valley and onto the hills of the Baviaanskloof. Blending effortlessly with the landscape, the natural architectural style and building materials ensure that the focus remains on the beauty of the vast surroundings.
Inside the lodge you will experience understated luxury in a true African environment. The interior reflects natural colours, materials and textures and also incorporates classic décor and furniture with an occasional warmer colour palette for contrast.
Zandibela offers eight natural stone lodges with air-conditioning, high ceilings and thatch roofs. All lodges have two en suite bedrooms, spacious lounges with wood burning fireplaces and decks offering expansive views to the horizon.
We invite you to enjoy all that Zandibela has to offer: cool down and relax in the pool whilst enjoying spectacular views of the dam where game gathers in the late afternoon. Enjoy a drink as the sun sets or make conversation with friends and other guests in the cosy bar.
Savour an unforgettable meal prepared by our highly creative cooks. For a down to earth dining experience we invite you to gather around our boma for a traditional braai (BBQ).
No matter what you do at Zandibela, we’ll ensure you leave relaxed, recharged and invigorated. Often it is the simple things that mean the most. To experience absolute silence and savour a view that stretches to eternity is a unique gift and memory to be cherished forever …
