About Mashovhela Bush Lodge

Unwind in the tranquil atmosphere of our intimate and unique Venda styled lodge surrounded by African bush.Tucked away in a steep valley, surrounded by impressive rocky outcrops, on the site of an abandoned Venda settlement, lies our small lodge which gets its name from the sacred Mashovhela rock pool, "Place where the drums beat". Be pampered by our warm and friendly staff that offer excellent, attentive and concerning service. Our 10 cozy rooms, restaurant, cocktail bar, conference venue, boma, swimming pool, arts and crafts shop where all built to minimize the ecological footprint and are run on a sustainable energy program.

Children are accommodated in our family friendly units. The call of bush babies, the hooting of Giant Eagle Owls and chirping of cicadas and frogs will break the silence of the night whilst you stretch out on our luxurious "king size" or twin beds.From your own private veranda surrounded by "magube" walls you can enjoy a cocktail under the African sun, whilst watching the Black Eagles returning to their nest.

                                              Very simple but absolutely meets the needs of a great value bush retreat. Attentive staff, beautiful landscape, soul lifting walks and hikes, comfortable beds, clean, cool chalets, great food. And despite being only 4km off the N1, tucked away in a hidden valley you feel as if you are deep in the bush with only the sounds of birds, insects, monkeys and baboons.

                                              We like the area for its outstanding biodiversity. Due to management changes we experienced some problems, but we were granted free beverages for the inconvenience. Generally good value for money.

                                              Service was superb. Great location. Very warm welcome. But...Not having a kettle or minibar in the rooms makes it less than ideal for traveling with toddlers. (I must add that we were initially booked to stay in a safari tent which is even less ideal for toddlers, but we were accommodated in a another room at no extra cost within 20m of arriving.)The place has lots of potential and is set in breathtaking surroundings, but the experience was a bit surreal at times. On NYE the main course of the dinner consisted of rump steak and a big bowl of yellow rice. By 9PM the already unimaginative music...
