Gwala Gwala

This intimate Lodge is located in the Central Lowveld region of the Limpopo Province, and is close to the Kruger National Park. Gwalagwala is on the banks of the Klaserie River, in a riverine forest.

Gwalagwala offers luxury, tented accommodation, and as the Lodge was built to accommodate only 12 guests in 6 tents, you are guaranteed of personalised treatment. Each tent is built on a wooden platform raised in the trees on sturdy stilts. The lodge does have electricity, and each tent has an en suite bathroom and private deck. All accommodation is also equipped with fans, heater, tea/ coffee making facilities, hairdryer, and fridge.

The central Lodge area is home to the tree-house pub, breakfast veranda (built up in the trees), swimming pool, and thatched lounge area – an excellent spot from which to view the passing wildlife, and numerous bird species.

Dinners are often enjoyed around the fire in the traditional Boma, where you can also enjoy the night sky, and the calls of the wild.

Activities are varied, and there are early morning guided walks, Big 5 game drives on a neighbouring Private Reserve (either morning or afternoon), game drives at Gwalagwala, and bird watching, from hides, and just around the Lodge.

This is also a lodge where you are encouraged to relax, and take in the surrounds. It is also ideal as a base from which to explore the scenic beauty of the area. You can visit the Kruger National Park, go hot-air ballooning, go to the Moholoholo Animal Rehabilitation Centre, enjoy the delights of the Panorama Route (Blyde River Canyon, Bourke’s Luck, Three Rondavels), and even try some white water rafting.
