We have been to many game lodges in SA, but this one is definitely the best we have seen. Rooms are extremely spacious and very close to the wildlife, you can invite rhinos to your patio. The guests have exclusive use to the whole lodge, which make you feel really at home, and spoiled by the wonderful staff. Christie and... More

We (a family of four including children ages 10 and 13) came to Pitse (in August 2013) primarily because we had a great experience with Haydn and Christie, the married couple who now run Pitse, at a different lodge in another reserve in South Africa some six years ago. We so enjoyed their company and were so impressed by their... More

With just a minister, his wife as photographer and witness, Ranger Haydn as witness and his wife Christie as caterer, wedding day planner and maid of honor helping my wife get dressed.... The staff of Paulina, Pieter and the rest singing to us afterwards... An elephant walking by during the day and... More

Pitse is perfectly suited to a group who wish to take an entire lodge. The rooms are extremley comfortable, food very good, and the timings and... More

My family stayed at Pitse in February 2013, and I cannot rave enough about the experience we had! Pitse is an EXCLUSIVE lodge, meaning your party is the ONLY group at the lodge during your stay. I was floored when we pulled up and the whole staff was lined up to greet us with refreshments and hot towels. It was... More

Pitse Lodge brought us the most personalized safari experience ever! Managed by a very dedicated young couple, Kirstie and Haydn, this lodge is situated in the South of Welgevonden. As this is a very specific area of Welgevonden, we recommend a stay combined with a lodge more up North in the park to get a good notice of the diversity... More

We had a wonderful time at Pitse. The Lodge is really designed to give each booking individualized attention and the staff tailored everything to our needs and preferences. We visited with young children and the excellent chef made delicious meals that the whole family could enjoy at times appropriate for both young children and adults - the food and service... More
