About Rra Ditau Bushveld Lodge

Rra Ditau Bushveld Lodge is a warm-hearted bush retreat, renowned for its peace and tranquility, offering exclusivity and personal attention. Rra Ditau means ‘Father of Lions’ in Tswana, and the lodge is situated on a 50-hectare malaria-free nature reserve at the foothills of the Waterberg Mountain Range, directly across from Marakele National Park.

Healthy appetites are well catered for in our à la carte restaurant. We also offer a friendly bar, swimming pool, big screen satellite television and free wireless Internet connection throughout the lodge. The lodge is ideal for family get-togethers, children’s parties and corporate functions. For a perfect evening, you can either sit around the fire on our large open-air deck and take in the atmosphere of the bushveld or dance under the stars.

The lodge features a range of luxury thatched chalets with en-suite bathrooms. Some of the chalets are equipped for self-catering and all of the chalets are serviced daily. Additional self-catering facilities are available for all guests in our boma kitchen, and each chalet has its own private braai area or boma. Chalets also include a fridge, bedding, towels and tea and coffee-making facilities.

Local activities include game-viewing, bush walks, bush braais, hiking, 4x4 trails, microlight flights, tree trails, fishing, golf, Marakele Predator Park and bird-watching. An additional special attraction not to be missed is the Vulture Restaurant. Here you can view vultures at close quarters whilst they scavenge on animal carcasses.

The house was big and sitting outside at a large table with 5 guests great. Apart from that we nearly got electrocuted each time we switched on the light, had sparking lamps, and a toilet that did not flush. It was raining a lot and the roof leaked on pillows and in the lounge. The lodge really needs a renovation and modernisation.

The  management give us a warm welcome. The staff was  friendly and available to assist us. They made our stay more comfortable. The rooms are separated from each other wish make the stay more enjoyable. We book as family trip of 12 people. The swimming pool was always clean and ready for us. If you like nature and quiet place, definitely Rraditau is a place to go.

We were received with a friendly smile and shown to bungalow no 8. Bungalow was very clean and comfortable, had a well equipped kitchen and great braai area. Had a great dinner at a reasonable price. Sat at a table in front of the log fire made just for us. Very pleasant stay. Will be back.
