About Majiki Lodge
Majiki Lodge is the main lodge of Safari Trails International and the base from which most activities are conducted. It is a restored 1820 settler home with an additional thatched dining and entertainment area. Majiki Lodge has five bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms.
The lodge is set on a beautiful game ranch which is host to over 20 species of game. There are no dangerous animals and guests are therefore encouraged to spend time walking in the veldt. Other activities on the ranch include game drives during the day or night, cycling, jogging and photography from well-appointed hides.
Majiki Lodge is also centrally situated between a number of private Big 5 reserves as well as the famous Addo Elephant Park in Port Elizabeth. From here one has the option of many activities including elephant back safaris, game viewing in Addo, guided tours in private game reserves, deep sea fishing, helicopter flips, visits to Port Elizabeth, or simply relaxing in our tranquil garden.
Majiki Lodge is also well positioned for small business meetings or workshops for the travelling businessman who does not want the noisy city environment. It is a great place to bring the family for a weekend of fun and relaxation.

On the wall there were many baseball caps of previous visitors one displaying the slogan "Let's get some blood". The only option for dinner that first night was impala. My sister, who I was treating for this visit, is vehemently anti bloodsports and was horrified by the... see more
My husband and I stayed here for 4 days over New Years this year, and we could not have been more pleased with everything during our stay. The owners of the lodge: Russell, Julie, and their two boys were some of the friendliest people you can ever hope to meet, and their hospitality made us feel at home right away. Our room had a very cozy Africa motif, and a large bathroom and tub. The whole lodge is spotless and the surrounding scenery is beautiful. We ate delicious food prepared by the chef Peter and had some excellent authentic South African cuisine.The lodge is on a 2500 acre game farm,... see more
Very nice place, clean and very neat, lovely food and friendly staff, we enjoyed our stay.
From the earlier reviews we expected a family run lodge on a reserve. Approach is by a very long rough track with plants scraping the bottom of the car, through a herd of cattle which included some very belligerent bullocks which could only be moved off the track by getting out of the vehicle. We finally arrived at a hunting lodge apparently run by 2 men (no family in sight). The owner was out with the other 2 guests who were there for the hunting & went out again with them very early next morning. Presumably that was why the complimentary game drive with B & B was not offered. This was the... see more
