The Venda Village Lodge is an authentic traditional village re-created by internationally renowned artist Noria Mabasa. This artistic wonderland of sculpted walls, seating areas, figures and entrances breathes the mystical spirit of Venda.

Sculpted sun-baked courtyards open up to en-suite African style huts in our Venda Village Lodge, see Standard Rooms. Luxury suites, Mwedzi and Duvha, offer a romantic and secluded stay with private plunge pools and patios overlooking the animals grazing on the plain below.

Hamasha Bush Camp offers self catering accommodation for 8 people and is nestled in an amphitheatre of high cliffs, with magnificent views through the gorge to the north.
