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 2½ 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.

Verified reviewexcellent

We stayed in Kingfisher which was everything we hoped for. The only negative is both bathrooms are en-suite which is not practical for an 8 sleeper but you do work around it. The view is spectacular and the house is perfectly situated on the bank of the river leading off a beautifully manicured lawn. The private bonfire pit overlooking the river is a real treat and the staff are very friendly and helpful. The perfect get away!!
