These are served at our licensed dining/bar area or around the fire in the boma under the African skies.

At the Baluleni Safari Lodge facilities include a licensed Dining/bar area and boma, full breakfasts and three course dinners are generally served in the dining area or outside on the patio.

Early coffee and home-made rusks are available for guests at the accommodation. High tea with savouries, snacks and cakes are served at the dining area. Guests also enjoy the swimming pool while relaxing with a cold drink in the shade.

No cheques are accepted; only bank transfers or cash. Bookings can only be confirmed once the amount due has been paid. Children are charged as adults.

Access to the lodge is via a 12 km dirt road and although it is at times accessible by a normal car, we recommend guest travel with a vehicle with a higher ground clearance. Once inside the gate, you are already in Big 5 and on your own game drive towards the lodge.

Although the area is a low-risk malaria area, we advise guests to take precautions. Should you have any concerns or questions about malaria in the area, please contact the malaria hotline.

I had mentioned to the owners that it was my wife's birthday, and they baked a cake and made a real effort to make her day special. The facilities are great, staff is friendly and courteous, service is customer oriented and nothing is too much trouble. This was a repeat visit, and we will back again!! Highly recommended to local and overseas visitors.Access road is a bit rough but nothing that e.g. a Golf or Polo or Corolla can't handle, but don't bring your low-profile BMW.Evenings are spent in the boma around a fire-place, which also gives it a great 'bush' experience.

It was very peaceful and restful at the Lodge. Had a very nice chalet overlooking little waterhole. Mathew the young game ranger was very interesting and informative We were however very disappointed not to see more animals and also that we would have had to go to main road and public entrance to get into the Park. Elke and Evern were very charming hosts but it felt a bit too personal - they virtually monitored your every move!Establishment Response: Thanks for the nice review. Due to the worst drought in 60 years in the area it was not possible to see that many animals, as we explained on...
