Description

Caracal Lodge offers self-catering luxury accommodation situated in the beautiful valley of Houtboshoek in Mpumalanga, only 48 km from Nelspruit and 100 km from the Kruger National Park. Caracal Lodge is a 300-hectare game farm comprising four luxury cottages.

The lodge offers various options of luxury accommodation, each with its own special features aimed at lovers of nature and wildlife. Figtree Lodge and Magtree Lodge are bush cottages for couples lit by gas and lamplight, with full self-catering facilities, while Kudu and Nyala Cottages are two-bedroom cottages, each with electricity and all amenities for self-catering.

We are situated in a beautiful valley with 360-degree views. The lodge is surrounded by beautiful grassy mountains, home to the mountain reedbuck, grey rhebuck, oribi and bushbuck, which occur naturally in the area. 300 hectares of unspoilt nature is home to the various species of game that have been introduced, including impala, livingstone eland, zebra, waterbuck, nyala, kudu, blue wildebeest, and giraffe. The shy Red duiker is often seen furtively feeding off the lawns of our two luxury bush lodges.

Take a hike or 4x4 drive around the ranch and enjoy the breathtaking views of the beautiful valley and view game at the same time. A babbling brook with crystal clear mountain water feeds the spectacular waterfall where you can enjoy a picnic, sundowner or a splash under the shade of the forest that surrounds it.

Caracal Lodge

Safari: Home to the various species of game, including impala, livingstone eland, zebra, waterbuck, nyala, kudu, blue wildebeest, and giraffe.

                      We are so happy we chose to go to Caracal lodge for a romantic getaway. We stayed in the Stone Circle Cottage. It has a wonderful outside shower which is exhilarating for the warm weather. We came from Middelburg, which is under 2 hours away from Caracal. Jan took us on a 4X4 drive to take a view of the farm and the surrounding areas, he was very professional and knowledgeable. We also explored the caves on the farm, which was a lot of fun. Jerry the giraffe walked with us to the waterfall where we had a lovely time cooling off under the waterfall. We would like to thank Donald for everything.... see more

                      15 July 2013

                      Stay was nice. The road leading to the Lodge is terrible and had some damage to the underside of my car, must have a SUV or Bakkie. Water used for bathing was very dirty as it was to cold for shower as there was only an outside shower. Personally I think it is a bit over priced for what you get.

                      We stayed in Kudu Lodge which was lovely and thoroughly enjoyed Caracal Lodge. We would highly recommend it to others.

                      3 nights was just not enough to fully enjoy the incredible hospitality, beautiful views and stunning accommodation! The lodge gets our two thumbs up and then some!
