Waterbuck Lodge


Adjacent to a water estuary in the southern part of the reserve, this is a haven for game and birds, with guests able to spot them en-route to the nearby waterhole.

There are just 4 generously-sized air-conditioned suites, ensuring that the lodge is quiet and private. The lodge itself houses a library, dining room, large viewing and sun deck as well as a boma and a swimming pool, with both game drives and escorted bush walks available on the reserve and further afield. 


Our Thoughts

As the name suggests, water is a major feature at this small but perfectly-formed lodge. As well as sitting next to an estuary it also has a waterhole, and it is a real haven for bird-watchers. A very good value property, perfect for the first-timer.

Flanked by a charming swimming pool and a lounge bar, the dining area offers rich banquets and extraordinary service, enchanting you with a memorable wildlife viewing while enjoying Waterbuck culinary specialities.
