Immerse yourself in Mdluli magic


We invite you to join us in experiencing this uniquely African lodge. It is a privilege to wake up
to the sweeping vistas of the Kruger National Park. There aren’t many other places on Earth more captivating. Come see Africa’s Big 5, and leave knowing your visit has a far-reaching positive impact on the vitality of the Mdluli Community.

Head out for an early morning game drive, when the roads are quiet, the big cats are hunting their prey, and the nocturnal animals are getting ready to turn in for the day.

Return to the lodge for a refreshing dip in the pool as you watch a herd of elephant amble past, just 50m away.

Climb to the top of the expansive rock formation, sit back and let the magic of the African sky take your breath away as the sun sets over the Park. This is the peacefulness of the African bush, with nothing but the sound of crickets chirping in the distance.

Enjoy open air dining under the highway of stars, the smell of the potpie simmering, while sharing stories and laughter around the crackling flames of the boma fire.
