About Nabana Lodge

Unpretentious and casual, Nabana Lodge is set in a rural area, surrounded by banana farms. It is a tranquil haven with magnificent views over the eastern escarpment. Nabana Lodge is a household name not only to locals, but nationally, and no wonder as it is the second oldest business name listed in Hazyview. Ours is a small family run lodge where the emphasis is on giving our guests a memorable experience, exceeding expectations. We love and value children and cater for them in many ways.

Ours is a fully catered lodge and facilities include clean and comfortable rooms, a vibrant pub, free Wi-Fi available in public areas Thyme Restaurant, a sparkling pool amidst extensive gardens, a safe kiddies play area and a large parking area directly off the main road.

Rooms are 3 Star graded, en-suite with DStv, a ceiling fan, small safe, a coffee and tea station and microwave. All rooms overlook the escarpment with beautiful vistas to the east. Except one that has a double bed, all rooms have twin beds. Two of the units have interlinking doors giving easy access to children.

The Sportsman Bar on site is where locals, business travelers and tourists meet to share their experiences of the day and have an ice cold drink. For major sport events there is a large screen and the atmosphere becomes electric.

Thyme Restaurant is owned by Paul Shepheard, who is an internationally trained and experienced chef. Dine in the relaxed atmosphere on the deck overlooking the gardens or indoors in the pub. The menu is extensive, meals are very well priced and provision is made for our little guests with a children’s section. We cater for individual needs and can make breakfast packs for those explorers wanting to leave early. Our restaurant is open all day, Monday to Saturday, from 07h15 until 19h00.

Nabana Lodge is located directly on the R40 between White River and Hazyview with easy access into the large car park. Guests also have the option of parking their vehicles at the rooms. It is a safe environment being surrounded by one farm and with an electric fence as well as a night guard to ensure an easy night’s rest.

We are ideally situated on the Panorama Route with the nearest gate to the Kruger Park 23 km away. Sabie, Pilgrim’s Rest, and Graskop with its beautiful waterfalls, the Mac Mac Pools and God’s Window are also in close proximity. For the more adventurous, there are many activities in and around Hazyview to participate in – from extreme sport such as white water rafting and tree top sailing to hiking, golf, interaction with elephants and many, many more.

We look forward to hosting you - come enjoy our relaxed atmosphere

Had a nice time at Nabana. Rained all night - winter rain in Hazyview? Food superb. Best prawns we've had in a long long time. Will be back.
