The Lodge on the Rocks

The central living areas are set against a backdrop of massive boulders that form part of the design of the structures. The Leopard’s Lair includes a teak bar, lounge and communal dining area. The adjacent library is a cosy retreat for those wishing to spend a quiet moment learning more about the history of the area.

Outside, the natural rock pool and sundeck is a cool contrast to the warm granites that surround the pool. Refuge can also be taken at midday in the nearby pool boma area where ice cold drinks are served. At sundown the cave-style boma is illuminated by lanterns as guests sit around a traditional fire while recounting stories of the days activities.

The design of the 7 lodges is A-frame granite under thatch, which ensures they are cool in summer and warm in winter. The seven lodges, each with en-suite bathroom and private balcony, resonate African creative flair. Included is a honeymoon suite, as well as family rooms for those with small children.
