If there were 6 stars, I'd give it!! We (4 families) stayed at the Motseng lodge, and it was amazing. A truly brilliant self catering stay with everything we could have wanted. The Mountain Bike trails were some of the best we have ever experienced.

Hard to believe that a week has passed since we were at Maroela Cottage at Lindani (10th to 13th August). What a peaceful setting with the watering hole not even a stones throw away from the cottage. Saw so many animals nearly all day long. The cottage was delightful well appointed with everything you could possibly need loved the gas... More

We started our South African holiday at Lindani, and stayed in Mareola. The service was second to none and we were so grateful for the kindness shown to us by Glenys and Sooli. We arrived having had our car broken into in Pretoria and without the help of these two lovely people I don't k ow what we would have... More

This is a wonderful place, so comfortable and thoughtfully stocked with everything needed to make the visit enjoyable. It is so peaceful and yet there is lots to do if you are energetic, like walking and mountain biking, but the tranquility of sitting and watching the resident warthogs and hundred birds is so restorative and enjoyable. The service from all... More

We spent the weekend raising awareness for the Waterbergs Wild Dogs. The Waterberg is the last place within South Africa outside of protected areas where these wonderful carnivores still reside in very low numbers. They do pass through Lindani every now and then. We put up posters throughout the Waterberg to encourage the public to report sightings. Motseng Lodge was... More

Our family of 3 has been visiting Lindani for several years because it provides us with the perfect bush place to unwind, relax and regroup. All we have to take is our food. The accommodation is always neat, the linen fresh and the private pool sparkling. And when you see the renowned garden fresh flowers that greet one as you... More

My greatest hesitation in writing this review is that it will be more difficult to get a booking due to increased popularity- but fair is fair! The perfectly kitted houses in a most beautiful setting, the friendly staff ( a pleasure to deal with Naomi, Martha and Johannes) , the extra TLC touches like fresh flowers and set-up braai wood...

We've been going to Lindani for donkeys years now, and its still the place that best understands what a bush lover wants. Silence, solitude, space to walk in, and being surrounded by nature. We can only hope it never changes.

On a recommendation from friends we decided to try out Lindani Lodges and stayed at Molope tented camp. What a perfect place and we had the most wonderful weekend at Lindani.
