Willinga Lodge is situated in the secure village of Kosmos overlooking Hartbeespoort Dam on a large property with secure off road parking for guests.
Hartbeespoort Dam is situated close to Pretoria, Johannesburg, Sun City (all 1 hour) and Lanseria Airport (30 mins). There is a wide variety of things to do in the area.
For example there are several African flea markets, the De Wildt Cheetah Centre, historical sites, golf courses and art galleries.
One can go hiking in the Magielesberg, horse riding, quad biking, bird watching or fishing. Many beautiful wedding venues nearby.
A large outside Jacuzzi is located under the trees overlooking the dam, and is available to all guests. A salt-water rock-pool, with stunning views of the mountains, and a thatched lapa overlooking the dam is located next to one of the braai areas. (In winter the Jacuzzi is not on. Air too cold. We start with that from mid September)
In one part of the garden is a waterfall with koi pond. The tropical garden has a collection of more than 20 varieties of hibiscus. Because of this you can observe the sunbirds feeding on the flowers.
A general lounge with a fireplace for winter, and a TV (Mnet and DSTV for those who can't do without their sports fix) is also available to all guests.
Gourmet kitchen available for self catering. The breakfast area leads out onto a large sun deck with an uninterrupted view of the dam and the surrounding mountains.
All six of our suites are built utilising the views to the maximum, whilst maintaining your privacy, four suites with glass and thatch and two newer very spacious suites.
Each suite has its own private entrance. All suites have a fridge, and a kettle including coffee and tea making facilities. There are braais on the terraces of the suites.
The Bali Suite is decorated in a tropical look with queen size bed. The lounge area has a ceramic fireplace. The two-seater spa bath in the ensuite bathroom overlooks the tropical garden. Through the French doors is a private patio with braai and views.
Green Bird Suite:
The Green Bird Suite has a majestic queen size bed, full en suite bathroom with shower and bath, ceramic fireplace and never ending views. A hospitality tray and fridge are provided, and a braai can be held on the terrace.
The Island Suite has a private terrace, with outside shower and braai. The queen size bed is draped with a romantic mosquito net. A two-seater Jacuzzi bath overlooks the dam and a ceramic fireplace is built in for colder nights.
The romantic Lombok Suite overlooks the pool & Hartbeespoort Dam. French doors open onto a terrace under the trees, with a braai. There is a queen size 4 poster bed and lounge area with ceramic fireplace. The 2 seater Jacuzzi bath has a magnificent view.
Hidden behind waving palms and over the waterfall the Palm Suite is decorated in Indonesian style with a queen size bed. The suite overlooks the dam and has a two-seater private Jacuzzi bath with a view, and a fireplace is built in for colder nights.
Yellow Grape Suite:
The Yellow Grape Suite has twin beds (which can become a king size bed) and a full en suite bathroom, with bath and shower. A fridge and hospitality tray are provided. The braai is on a private terrace, and on a clear day you can see forever.

The total Willinga Lodge Experience was absolutely outstanding. From the warm welcome, to the hospitality, the breakfast, everything. The owners also went out of their way, to assist us, in our special requests. The accommodation itself, is of a high standard, and the suites with their own styles, make it a total new experience every time you go there. It will never be the same. I will definitely stay there again.
