The main lodge is built from natural rock with teak decks overhanging the dramatic Makweti Gorge. Rare African art, stylish furnishings, rich woods, leather and woven textures create a rich elegance. Secluded suites, individually decorated with antique treasures and plush furnishings for the discerning. Amenities include indoor and outdoor showers; Victorian bathtubs, log fires and private decks with sweeping views of the bushveld make this a popular honeymoon destination.

Safari: Delightful safari experiences at Makweti are assured by an astounding diversity of wild species, including the “Big Five”; by natural densities of wildlife; and by superbly qualified guides.

Spa: The joys of a spa are not only for city slickers; inward relaxation is essential to a good safari. Africa’s wild giants do not move at our frenetic pace, so we hardly need add that we offer our guests a most soothing massage.
