About n'Kaya Lodge

With a capacity of only four exclusive suites, n'Kaya Lodge offers the discerning guest the very best in privacy and it is the ideal destination for a quiet, peaceful safari. n'Kaya Lodge boasts spacious double suites, each with private lounges and twin en-suite amenities. Shaded by tall trees, they look out over the camp's superb swimming pool and the Drakensberg Mountains beyond.

This lodge has recently undergone a soft furnishings upgrade and it has the flexibility of providing guests with either eight single en-suite facilities, or four spacious suites, each with a his and hers bathroom and a comfortable lounge area for private entertaining and relaxation. With all four suites built around an inviting pool area, this lodge also boasts an excellent bar, dining and lounge facilities and an outside boma area for evening dining.

The lounge, bar and verandah are decorated in earthy tones and indigenous woods. They allow guests to spend their time relaxing in between game drives, in total tranquility while catching up with some reading or sampling some of the lodge’s award-winning wines. At the end of each day, the focal point of the lodge becomes the enormous fireplace in the lounge where guests can listen to the crackle of the fire and the night sounds of Africa as the animals come to drink at the floodlit waterhole.

Safari: Guests can experience wildlife as they come to drink at the waterhole.
