About LookOutSafariLodge - “The Heartbeat of Africa”

The Lookout Safari Lodge is located within the malaria free Dinokeng Big 5 Game Reserve, a short 30 min drive from Pretoria, Gauteng, South Africa or approximately 70 minutes drive from OR. Tambo International Airport. The name of the lodge originates from the view offered from the central lodge area which overlooks a natural dam which attracts various game species, including the Big 5, allowing the guest to enjoy game sightings from the comfort of the lodge area.

It is designed around a central entertainment area raised on to a high platform ensuring unsurpassed views over the bush. The entertainment area offers a seating and viewing area, dining area for 10 and a fully equipped kitchen and built in braai. The fire pit next to the swimming pool and entertainment area allows for evenings spent under the stars around a crackling fire. In the daytime guest can soak up the summer sun lounging next to the splash pool.If game viewing is no longer an option the lounge also offers DSTV facilities.

The Lookout Safari Lodge offers 4 luxury non – smoking self-catering tented chalets, each uniquely designed to cater for privacy and to maximize the bush experience for the visiting guest. The en–suite chalets are ideally suited for a couple’s romantic weekend getaway. Each chalet has a small equipped kitchen and a patio dining area as well as its own private bushveld boma and braai/barbeque facility, providing the opportunity to enjoy the perfect camp fire under starry lit African skies.

The Lookout Safari Lodge can also be booked in its entirety by small groups or friends, being it a family gathering for a special event or an executives’ “bos beraad” or “lekgotla”. Guest visiting the Lookout Safari Lodge has the option to view game in the comfort of their own vehicle through selfdrive game viewing routes offered by the Dinokeng Game Reserve or to book a game drive which is conducted in an open safari game viewer vehicle. Notwithstanding the Big 5 roaming the area, the Lodge and its surrounding area is a birders paradise, ideal for bird watching.

Safari: Experience the bush and free roaming game through open safari vehicle excursions or from the luxury of the lodge viewing deck, overlooking the waterhole - Game drives can be booked with informed guides.

Wedding Venues: We do not cater for weddings but the wedding party can stay in perfect harmony with nature away from the hustle and bustle of the preparations at one of the wedding venues in close proximity.

Family friendly: Can accommodate children over 12- Two of our rooms can be converted into family suites with a sofa bed or pull out beds for children to share a room with their parents.

Romantic: The four luxurious open plan suites with a freestanding bath and outdoor veranda offers an elegant bush experience. Blinds instead of walls can be retracted to create an open space where you can enjoy your downtime and soak in the surrounding bush.

                  Beautiful, clean and spacious chalet!Although the place was fully booked, we never heard or saw any of the other people and we were sitting outside our chalet all the time!It was so nice to be able to have a nice braai on our own at our chalet and not to share any facilities with other guests.Will definitely stay there again, without a doubt!

                  From the moment we drove into LookoutSafarilodge, we felt so special. The setting is beautiful, private with a very close feel to nature. The Bush Chalets are breathtaking and very romantic! The Chalets were beautifully decorated, clean and absolutely stunning. The outdoor shower was something different and we woke up every morning with a view of the bush. Derek, the Lodge Manager is a very special person and attended to all our needs, with nothing too much trouble for him. We absolutely loved the place and will definitely return.

                  Lookout safari lodge is perfect for that peaceful/private/romantic getaway with units that are a perfect combination of luxury and wilderness by being able to open up the 'walls' for an ultimate bush experience. Not forgetting the amazing service by the grounds keeper(derek) who will attend to any of your needs in a positive manner. This is really a true gem in in the bush

                  We had a WONDERFUL stay at the beautiful Lookout lodge! We can confidently say it is one of the best places we’ve been to in the South African bushveld. A stunning location allowing such a connection with nature but with all the necessities and beautiful finishings to allow for true relaxation! The lodge manager, Derek, was so attentive and friendly, making our stay very welcoming! The lodge owners facilitated easy communication and made booking etc a breeze.We will definitely be back! We would highly recommend The Lookout Lodge to anyone wanting to escape from the city and reconnect with...

                  The dam was originally named Pienaars Rivier Dam and meant for the water supply to the immediate land owners. It still supplies water but visitors are able to row and fish on the dam. Bass, carp, kurper and barbel can be caught.
