About Aves Lodge

Aves lodge is situated 15 km outside the lovely town of Cullinan in the De Tweedespruit conservancy, 30 km east of Pretoria and a mere 90 km North of OR Tambo International Airport. The lodge is on a 25 hectare property and built as a wooden cottage with enough space for your long holiday or your short breakaway. Aves, which is the scientific name for birds is definitely your one and only choice if you appreciate the tranquility while enjoying the bush in your own privacy. Dogs and kids, friends and family are more then welcome.

Our spacious cottage caters for up to eight people. It includes four bedrooms with two double and two with two single beds, two bathrooms, one with shower and toilet and other one with bath and toilet and an open plan kitchen. A living space with fireplace, gas stove and DStv. The kitchen is fully equipped for all your self-catering needs. Outside you can enjoy the wood braai and boma and as of June 2010 also a private plunge pool.

Relaxing and enjoying the stunning view from the spacious wooden deck is highly recommended. For your leisure we offer a gas heater, gas braai, hammock and large outside dining table. For the more adventurous amongst us, there is a 4x4 quad bike which you are welcome to use as long as you respect the fact that Aves is situated in a conservancy and the quad is used to tour the property only, no racing and understand that the use of it is on your own risk.

For your relaxation and stress relief we offer spa treatments in the privacy of your own deck but must be pre-booked, Exploring the area will lead to birding, ballooning, mine tour, walking with lions, horseback safaris, self-drive safari and micro light flying. Cullinan is a beautiful town with nice little restaurants and shops to explore.

We enjoyed the quiet of Aves Lodge. Andre was there to greet us and show us around and then we were left to our own devices. Some maintenance needs to be down around the place to keep it like it should be. It would be nice to have some game to view.

We loved the short distance from Pretoria and staying in a bush veld. On the way home Cullinan is a lovely stopover for browsing and a cup of coffee .
