Pondoro Game Lodge

Step out of the city and into the majesty of the South African bushveld at the award winning Pondoro Safari Game Lodge. At Pondoro guests can expect an intimate and luxurious safari adventure like no other, a truly bespoke experience.

At Pondoro Lodge you will have the opportunity to choose from 5 truly luxurious suites.

All our suites are air-conditioned and offer modern comforts in an exquisite African setting. Each suite has a private patio, lounge area, an outside shower and Jacuzzi built into the wooden deck in front of the suites facing the river.

Each suite offers complete privacy to compliment the romantic setting at Pondoro Game Lodge.

Pondoro Game Lodge has three tastefully designed chalets decorated in keeping with the African aesthetic and overlooking the Olifants River.

All chalets have en-suite bathrooms (with a shower and bath overlooking the river), air-conditioning, mosquito nets and a wooden deck.

Pondoro boasts an overnight Treehouse Hide Experience. The hide overlooks a spotlit waterhole in the middle of the bush and is a must for those with a taste for adventure. Your adventure will begin after dinner with a late night drive to the hide. You will be picked up again during the morning safari.

Dining at Pondoro promises a fusion of Traditional African Cuisine and modern European trends. Vegetarians are specially catered for.

To compliment the food, wine can be selected from our extensive wine cellar. Pondoro has won a Diners Club PLATINUM award for its wine list in 2009 and again in 2011. This award acts as a benchmark in the restaurant and wine industries in South Africa.

Our bar also stocks a selection of some of the finest Whiskies in the world; whether you’re looking for an exquisite blend or smoky single malt.

After dinner you’ll be able to relax with a Cuban cigar and enjoy a glass of Port or Cognac, should that be your fancy.

All meals are served on a wooden deck high up in the tree canopy overlooking the Olifants River.

An unforgettable bush dinner will await those who stay for a third night.
