About Kenjara Lodge

Kenjara Lodge is a homely country retreat nestled in the heart of the Cradle of Humankind. The surrounding area was declared a Wold Heritage Site in 1999, an area of 48 000 hectares. Kenjara Lodge is small and comfortable and tastefully decorated in true African fashion, the perfect place for a break from the hustle and bustle of city life. What is better than comfortable accommodation, good food and excellent service?

We are just 30 minutes from Johannesburg, Midrand and Pretoria and 20 minutes from Krugersdorp and Roodepoort, making us easily accessible. Come and relax and unwind in the tranquility of our gardens and surroundings. Situated only 1 km from the Rhino and Lion Nature Reserve, you can fall asleep to the sounds of lions roaring. Game drives can be arranged in the park where you can see White Lion, Tawny Lion, Cheetah, Wild Dog, Tiger, Hippo, Rhino, Eland, Wildebeest, Buffalo, Sable and many other species. The retreat is the perfect venue for conferences, corporate brainstorms, teambuilding initiatives, weddings, family gatherings, birthday bashes, or just a romantic getaway.

Relax, that was one word we heard a lot, they make you feel really welcome and relaxed, everyone told us to not stress about anything (Check-out time, the bill, dinner or breakfast).We got discounted entrance to the Rhino and Lion nature reserve through them, had lovely dinner as well as breakfast. Our room was nice, neat and clean. We ordered Champagne in the room, the only disappointment was that we only enquired about the chocolate platter for R110, which they went ahead and put and charged us for a biltong and chocolate platter for R210. We enjoyed the platter but was a bit confused, and...

It was a bit of a shock to the system when we open the tap to shower and were sprayed with ice cold water. the shower head sprayed in every direction hitting me, the walls and the floor.There was no TV in the room and although I didn't need one it was advertised. The food and the service was great!They need to advertise in there brochure that the restraint is a sports bar.
