Makalali Private Game Lodge is nestled on 14 000 hectares of conservancy, Makalali Private Game Reserve. Four exclusive camps, each consisting of six spacious suites adjacent to a stilted Sala set amongst Jackalberry trees, are equipped with all the Modern Conveniences. Amenities on offer at each camp include a uniquely designed swimming pool, boma, air-conditioning, and an enclosed dining and lounge area.

Considered one of the Leading Pioneers In Ecotourism in South Africa, Makalali Private Game Reserve represents a conservation mission to expand South Africa's green frontier by re-establishing the ancient wildlife migration routes that linked the famous Kruger Park in the east to the lush Drakensberg Mountains in the west. In the process lion, cheetah, leopard, elephant, and rhino have all been reintroduced to the wild, making Makalali Home to over one Thousand Wild Animals including four of Africa's "Big Five".

Panoramic Escarpment Tours

Your journey start with a rapid climb onto and through the rugged yet picturesque plateau of the Drakensburg mountains and then descending down into the Lowveld plains. Pleaces of interest along your way, include the Blyde River canyon (gigantic gorge more than 20 km long, cut out of the escarpment) and Bourke's Luck Potholes (deep cylindrical cavities formed by swirling action of flood waters).

Informative Game Walks

Educational Walks (giving you insight into some of the local superstitions and uses of a wide variety of plants), birding walks (because we are a lot more quiet when we walk, calls can easily be heard and identified, especially in and around the lovely Makutswi river), or for fitness enthusiast, more strenuous walks, are all available daily for no extra charge.
