drop-TTHE LODGES – 6 LUXURY SUITES, TWO HONEYMOON SUITES AND TWO FAMILY SUITES – ARE COMPLETELY SEPARATE. Sheer indulgence greets you at the door and each lodge has a spacious living area, a well appointed bathroom with underfloor heating, a wooden viewing deck, a fireplace, wi-fi, plantation blinds, a ceiling fan, a mini bar and satellite TV.

Each lodge has been themed according to a character in the Emily Moon story, featuring rare artefacts and found-items collected from the length and breadth of Africa.

Lodge Suites

These lodges are completely private and connected by leafy wooden walkways. The six luxury suites sleep 2 adults while the family suites can accommodate 2 adults and 2 children. Each lodge has its own deck with spectacular views of the Bitou River valley.
