About Caracal Lodge

Caracal Lodge offers self-catering luxury accommodation situated in the beautiful valley of Houtboshoek in Mpumalanga, only 48 km from Nelspruit and 100 km from the Kruger National Park. Caracal Lodge is a 300-hectare game farm comprising four luxury cottages.

The lodge offers various options of luxury accommodation, each with its own special features aimed at lovers of nature and wildlife. Figtree Lodge and Magtree Lodge are bush cottages for couples lit by gas and lamplight, with full self-catering facilities, while Kudu and Nyala Cottages are two-bedroom cottages, each with electricity and all amenities for self-catering.

We are situated in a beautiful valley with 360-degree views. The lodge is surrounded by beautiful grassy mountains, home to the mountain reedbuck, grey rhebuck, oribi and bushbuck, which occur naturally in the area. 300 hectares of unspoilt nature is home to the various species of game that have been introduced, including impala, livingstone eland, zebra, waterbuck, nyala, kudu, blue wildebeest, and giraffe. The shy Red duiker is often seen furtively feeding off the lawns of our two luxury bush lodges.

Take a hike or 4x4 drive around the ranch and enjoy the breathtaking views of the beautiful valley and view game at the same time. A babbling brook with crystal clear mountain water feeds the spectacular waterfall where you can enjoy a picnic, sundowner or a splash under the shade of the forest that surrounds it.

                              What an amazingly peaceful stay, being away surrounded by nature the sound of birds being absolutely closed off in the stone circle lodge was the most amazing experience. With though power gas stoves and LED lights it was truly a comfortable and pleasant stay. We will definitely be going back in the near future

                              We enjoyed our stay very much. The lodge itself is set in beautiful surrounding and is really very lovely and comfortable. We had a good stay.

                              What a great breakaway place to enjoy the quiet and peaceful nature! Loved the waterfall and Gerry the friendly giraffe!

                              The stay was so lovely. I will recommend the place to people and I will certainly go back. The room was nice and cosy. The walks to the waterfall were absolutely great and it was very pleasant just to be in nature. I found the decor to be interesting as well.
