Nkala Safari Lodge

If you’re after the ultimate in secluded safari destinations for a family or group getaway, look no further than Nkala Safari Lodge, Black Rhino Game Reserve. This luxurious, self-catering complex offers every amenity you need to ensure your stay is sheer comfort without imposing on the serenity of the pristine Pilanesberg wilderness. Its thatch finish, earthy-toned décor, and minimalist, contemporary design make for an aesthetically pleasing bushveld base that blends perfectly with the natural landscape. Nkala Safari Lodge can accommodate up to 10 guests in four private chalets. Each chalet features air-conditioning, a king-size bed, en-suite bathroom, outdoor shower, separate toilet, ample built-in storage, plus sitting area. While the communal chalet has a fully-kitted kitchen, dining area, TV lounge, bar, barbeque boma and refreshingly clear pool where you can soak up the pure tranquility of the African bushveld in the shade of the surrounding Tamboti trees. With daily Big 5 game drives included, Nkala Safari Lodge is an ideal base from which to explore the world-renowned Black Rhino Game Reserve and adjacent Pilanesberg Game Reserve.

Black Rhino Game Reserve lies along the west perimeter of the Pilanesberg National Park; it is a mere two-and-a-half hour’s drive from Johannesburg and approximately 30 minutes’ drive from Sun City in a certified malaria-free game area.
