Tandane, Mkhiwa and Emtomeni Camp

The lodge consists of three camps - Tandane, Mkhiwa and Emtomeni. Each camp has six luxury suites, a plunge pool, private viewing deck, dining area and boma. All the camps are private, yet within easy access of one another and are all situated on the banks of the Makhutswi River.

Tandane Camp
Tandane means "place of love". The centre consists of a unique thatch-covered main building, an open kitchen and entertainment area. This is Makalali’s conference venue and ideal for conferences, private dining, weddings, gala events, etc. The use of flame torches creates a mystical and fiery African ambience at night.

Mkhiwa Camp
Mkhiwa means Sycamore Fig and is named after the large fig tree which stands over the main area creating some welcome shade.

Emtomeni Camp
Emtomeni, Mkhiwa’s sister camp, means Jackelberry tree. This camp is able to accommodate groups who require more than six rooms at a time. However each camp can still run separately with its own dining area, to create that personal touch.
