About Ruwilthu Lodge

This exclusive break away is situated in the Waterberg Biosphere in the heart of the Limpopo Bushveld, a two-and-a-half hour drive from Pretoria on the N1. The lodge is situated 30 km from the town Vaalwater, between Modimolle and Lepalale.

The lodge enjoys a panoramic view over the entire landscape of the beautiful bushveld, and various viewpoints are available on different hiking routes which will astonish nature lovers. The quiet surrounding will let you relax and forget about the rat race.

The silence of the bushveld, with its beautiful sunsets, will accompany you into the early night life of nature where you can relax next to the fire.The lodge features five en-suite bedrooms, sleeping two to four persons per room, with all linen and towels supplied.

The outdoor Jacuzzi provides hours of pleasure while enjoying the bushveld view. While relaxing in the Jacuzzi, the full moon and the sounds of the bushveld at night will give you that instant romantic atmosphere, while the swimming pool will keep you cool during the hot summer days.

A lounge is available with a pool table. Unfortunately, no DStv is available at this stage, but you are welcome to bring your own DVDs, as a TV and player is available. For the smaller ones, there is a playground with a swing and a clean sandpit available where kids can keep themselves busy.
