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. 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 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 wildebeest are commonly seen. The Estate 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. There have been regular sightings of leopard on the estate and guests have been warned against allowing small children to play outside in the evenings and at night.

Safari: The animals on the Estate roam freely among the Lodges. So, you can stay at the Lodge and let the animals come to you or you can drive/walk to go and find them. The big five can be seen in nearby Kruger National Park. (20 minutes to Orpen Gate).

      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.
