Welcome to Thandolwami Bushlodge & Spa, set in an enclosed area of 100-hectares within a wildlife reserve just 35 km outside the town of Hoedspruit.

This family friendly lodge is a haven for wildlife enthusiasts.  Keep your eyes peeled for giraffes, ostriches, impalas, antelopes, and sable antelopes that roam freely in the area.  The enclosed area is home to a main lodge house, three chalets, a bush house, and a luxury king room.

Each chalet and room is air-conditioned and features an en-suite bathroom, a bar fridge, and a tea and coffee station.  The bush house is located further away from the main lodge and is equipped for self-catering - breakfast and dinner are possible at the main house restaurant.  It contains 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, and an open-plan kitchen, dining and living area, as well as its own private pool area and braai area.

Wi-Fi internet access is available.  Various local and international meals that are sure to satisfy your taste buds can be enjoyed in the central thatched dining area, overlooking a sparkling 7 m by 15 m swimming pool.  The swimming pool overlooks a waterhole, where you can spot various animals coming for a drink.

Relax around the lodge fire pit with a drink and enjoy the stars and sounds of the African night.  Our 24-hour staffed reception is always available to assist you with any needs or requests you may have.
