Maroela Cottage, with its own waterhole is an absolute delight. We enjoyed the animals of all kinds coming to drink, warthogs galore (with their babies), monkeys, baboons, giraffe, kudu, impala, zebra, bush buck... the list goes on. Birding was fantastic. We walked over 20km on the farm roads and saw a wide variety of game and birds. Words cannot describe...

My husband and I were blown away by Lindani in the Waterberg. We stayed in spacious Skebenga with some Danish friends (four adults, two children) – choosing the self-catering option, which I FAR prefer. Having stayed in many five-star Safari lodges around South Africa, I can honestly say Lindani was – by far – the best value for money. The...

We spent two days at Maroela Lodge as a family of four adults and loved every moment. After watching warthog and a troupe of mongoose, who visited the waterhole infront of our little cottage, we walked out across the reserve encountering zebra, wildebeeste, implala with young, kudu, red heartebeeste, waterbuck, eland, baboon, vert monkeys and blesbok. In the evening I...

We visited Lindani for the 20th time, and stayed at Skebenga. Once again we arrived at a very clean house, and everything worked. We caught some carp at the Skebenga Dam, just watch out for the crocodile!

I've just returned from my 32nd visit to Lindani. Why do I keep going back?Lindani focuses my attention sharply on the things that matter in life. Firstly, it's a wonderful place to connect with friends and family and the fact that the lodges are so cleverly appointed means that we don't get in each other's hair. Then, for a nature...

On arriving to these special, private, well decorated lodges you might find flower arrangements from the owners gardens, suggestions for food from their caterer or advised hikes or bike ride trails. Be careful not to run into a giraffe or zebra as you bird the lovely lakes and streams. People from the US would do best with ordering from the...
