About Lodge 603 Hoedspruit Wildlife Estate

Three-bedroom six sleeper luxury self-catering thatched Lodge has a plunge pool and air-conditioning in the main bedroom and lounge with TV. The main bedroom and lounge both have air conditioners that help to make it comfortable throughout the lowveld summer. The second bedroom opens onto an enclosed outside shower area. The third bedroom is upstairs in a loft and opens up onto a balcony above the outside dining table and braai area with it’s own stone fireplace. The kitchen has all the basic equipment needed for casual self-catering, including a driepoot potjie, a microwave oven and a fridge/freezer. A comfortable indoor lounge in the thatched double volume is furnished with a television and overlooks a wrap around view of pure, unspoiled lowveld bush.

The Estate has great wildlife populations that roam freely among the bush lodges. Giraffe, waterbuck, warthog, large herds of impala and buffalo are commonly seen. There are no predators on the Estate, which is perfect for walking, driving and mountain biking among the game. There are two elevated thatched hides overlooking water holes on a perennial stream that runs from the main gate in the west and flows due east towards the Kruger National Park. South of this stream the reserve extends for a further 5000 hectares of wildlife game protection area. At night the nocturnal wildlife is just as plentiful. The whoop of the black backed jackal is as loud as the millions of stars in the Milky Way are bright. If you sit outside at the fireside with the lodge lights dimmed you can expect regular visits from porcupines and warthogs while locating the bark of the male impalas in the dark. The Buffalo can be extremely short tempered and dangerous and should not be approached on foot. Exercise caution when moving past them in your vehicle.

We went looking for somewhere to relax after a long international flight where we could sit on the stoep, have a braai and look at the passing animals - 100% success with lodge 603. Very well appointed, lovely quiet bush setting, plenty of animals and nice bush walks in the estate, lots of local restaurants plus the Kruger Park, Graskop etc, all close. Both Graham (in Joburg) and Paola (in Hoedspruit) made it all very easy for international visitors - highly recommended

Spent a week at Lodge 603, and had a wonderful time. We've been to Hoedspruit Wildlife Estate a few times now, and really love it there.  Unfortunately Portia at Safarilisious is less than useless, and the power in parts of the estate was off for 34 hours.

We enjoy staying there. Everything was just perfect. There are just a lot of ants in the kitchen but we clean everyday.I will definitely come back and recommend for other people. It is very nice and clean.

Ons het baie lekker gebly! Die diere was pragtig en baie. Ons het diere gesien wat jy nie maklik op ander plekke sal sien nie soos byvoorbeeld 'n luislang, reuse slakke en ons was so naby aan die kameelperde dat jy amper aan hulle kon vat. Die wild was volop! Dit was baie stil en rustig in die reservaat en ons het die swembadjie baie geniet. Ons het die gazebo oor die swembad gesit sodat die son ons nie dood brand nie. Die diere het tot teen die gastehuis gekom en ons kon hulle vanuit die huis geniet. Die winkels was baie naby aan die gastehuis vir wanneer ons iets nodig gehad het....
