  • Description
  • Facilities
Our tranquil and peaceful Lodge on the shores of the Olifants River, in the 40 000 hectare Balule Nature Reserve inside the greater Kruger National Park, offers the splendor of the natural Africa Bush with breath-taking sunsets, wildlife which includes the Big 5, bird watching, safaris, bush walks, boma-dinners under the stars, and is often referred to by guests as "Paradise" or "Heaven on Earth" Welcome at Baluleni Safari Lodge.

Enjoy a unique African Safari experience, go on guided open vehicle safaris, learn about the wilderness on a bush walk, listen to the sounds of the African Bush while dining under the stars, or simply relax at the Lodge by the pool side.

Our Lodge offers secluded and comfortable accommodation in five air-conditioned en-suite thatched chalets, two luxury en-suite tents with ceiling fans, and one air-conditioned en-suite thatched honeymoon cottage with full breakfast, high tea and dinners. These are served at our licensed dining/bar area or around the fire in the boma under the African skies.
Or
Choose our separate self-catering option offering the five bedroom River Cottage with deck, boma and pool and the four bedroom Family Cottage with lapa, braai and pool. Both view over the Olifants River.

At the Baluleni Safari Lodge facilities include a licensed Dining/bar area and boma, full breakfasts and three course dinners are generally served in the dining area or outside on the patio. However, our guests mostly prefer to enjoy a three course dinner under the stars around the fire in the boma. Guests enjoy sun downers on the patio or sharing a drink in the lounge while watching adventure wildlife DVD's. Early coffee and home-made rusks are available for guests at the accommodation. High tea with savouries, snacks and cakes are served at the dining area. Guests also enjoy the swimming pool while relaxing with a cold drink in the shade.

At the reception guests can arrange and depart for their three hour safaris in an open vehicle, an early morning Bush walk, a day tour in the Kruger National Park and other tours to different venues like Moholoholo, Cheetah Project, Panorama Route.
Our curio shop at reception offers a variety of the most sought after products made by local artists as well as signed copies of Elke's famous oil paintings and drawings. Guests also have access to internet and cell phone signal at reception.

Free secure parking and laundry services are available to guests.

18 Reviews on Baluleni Safari Lodge

Elke and Evert are charming, helpful and friendly and the staff are outstanding. The boma suppers create a lovely atmosphere. However, it is misleading to state that this lodge is in the greater Kruger National Park, as it is most inconveniently located, being a full hour's drive from the Phalaborwa gate, along a dangerous , potholed road filled with mining trucks bumper to bumper. This totally destroys any solitude that you may have gained at the Lodge. If your aim is to view game then rather stay in the Kruger park. The chalets are tiny, with no privacy at all, between the main room and the third sleeper; it is more accurate to state that a small child or only two people should be accommodated in the chalets. The Lodge does not border the banks of the Olifants river directly, but is set back from the river, so we could not view any animals coming to drink in the river anyhow. We paid for 4 nights but cut short our stay after two nights.

The place where we stayed at was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!!! Very friendly people welcomed us and the help was also awesome!!!! I would definitely recommend Baluleni lodge to visitors who want to relax and enjoy nature to it's fullest!

We thouroughly enjoyed our stay, it was very peaceful and gave us a very good opportunity to unwind from our regular craziness. :) There are plenty of animals to see, from the elephants that walked past, to the little monkeys that keep you entertained playing on the lawn in front of the house. Thank you to the staff for looking after us during our stay. I would have loved to go on a game drive.

Thank you Elke and Evert for going out of your way to make our weekend so enjoyable. What a pity we couldn't stay longer. The River Cottage has all you can possibly need to make your stay comfortable. All neat, clean and serviced. My biggest present was the cheetah on the riverbank on Saturday. We will visit again in the near future.

Very good relaxing and quiet location, thouroughly enjoyed four days on the banks of the Olifants River. Would reccommend to anyone looking for a quiet break. Evert and Elke exceptionally friendly and accomodating, very good hosts. Thank you both.
