Mufasa Lodge is a property providing self catering in Phalaborwa for tourists visiting the Valley of the Olifants region.

About Mufasa Lodge

Mufasa Lodge can be found in the beautiful town of Phalaborwa in the Limpopo Province which borders the northern side of the Kruger National Park. Phalaborwa is one of the few safe towns left where you can still leave windows and doors wide open allowing the uniquely smelling bushveld air flowing into your room.

Mufasa Lodge is situated 4 kms from the Phalaborwa entrance to the Kruger National Park as well as the Kruger Park Gateway Airport. Restaurants, shopping centers and commercial outlets are within walking distance from Mufasa Lodge.

Relaxing in the lush green garden filled with tall indigenous trees, shrubs and cycads, one can hear the soft sound of water trickling down a small waterfall into a coy filled pond. The bright starlit sky peaking through leaf filled trees during night time makes your stay at Mufasa Lodge the ultimate experience of relaxation and satisfaction.

Awakening to the pleasurable sound of birds in the morning, one can watch an abundance of bird life feeding from seed filled feeders and drinking water from strategically fitted water features. Each unit overlooks the garden through glass sliding doors.


This neat and cozy guest house is run by the dedicated and warmhearted owners Robert and Hannetjie Hoffmann who have resided at this establishment since 1985.

Mufasa Lodge offers:
Two thatched chalets (41m each), both with a kitchenette, dressing room, bathroom and small loft.
One flatlet with a living room, kitchenette, bathroom and bedroom.

All self-catering units are furnished with a double and single bed. The loft areas of both the chalets are furnished with mattresses. All self-catering units are fitted with a lounge suite, TV, fridge, microwave oven, electrical frying pan, crockery and cutlery.

Please Note
There is a 5,5 kw generator and thus has its limitations. When load-shedding occurs, guests are able to use a lamp-light provided to them. The generators guarantee power for water and hot water to show during load-shedding. The generators can not supply power to the air conditioners in the chalets.
