Figtree Cottage
Yolandi Human, South Africa - 23 December 2013
This was an amazing experience and would like to recommend it to any nature lover! The views are incredible and the quality of the bedding and utensils in the cottages are of the highest range. Hospitably is great and they attend to all your needs. Would certainly go again! And this time in Magtree Cottage
Perfect getaway

We are so happy we chose to go to Caracal lodge for a romantic getaway. We stayed in the Stone Circle Cottage. It has a wonderful outside shower which is exhilarating for the warm weather. We came from Middelburg, which is under 2 hours away from Caracal. Jan took us on a 4X4 drive to take a view of the farm and the surrounding areas, he was very professional and knowledgeable. We also explored the caves on the farm, which was a lot of fun. Jerry the giraffe walked with us to the waterfall where we had a lovely time cooling off under the waterfall. We would like to thank Donald for everything. It was really lovely and Caracal would see us again soon.

Stay was nice. The road leading to the Lodge is terrible and had some damage to the underside of my car, must have a SUV or Bakkie. Water used for bathing was very dirty as it was to cold for shower as there was only an outside shower. Personally I think it is a bit over priced for what you get.
Highly recommended

We stayed in Kudu Lodge which was lovely and thoroughly enjoyed Caracal Lodge. We would highly recommend it to others.

3 nights was just not enough to fully enjoy the incredible hospitality, beautiful views and stunning accommodation! The lodge gets our two thumbs up and then some!
Absoluut ongelooflik!

Baie baie lekker! Die uiteensetting van die plek is baie netjies,oulik en iets besonders. Die gaslampies gee 'n lekker romantiese 'vibe' en die swembad is uniek! Wat my stom geslaan het is die kameelperd met sy eie persoonlikeid! Jerry die kameelperd groet jou,as hy wegloop en jy roep hom kom hy terug! Waar in jou lewe! Ek sal defenitief terug wees die keer nie vir huweliksherdenking nie maar met ons kiddies.Hulle sal hul gate uit geniet. Die werkers is ook vreeslik gaaf,behulpsaam en een verstaan tot afrikaans.baie baie beindruk.

We stayed in the Figtree Lodge for two nights and had a very pleasant time. The oil lamps gave a very old world atmosphere, the setting is stunning and the tame giraffe was a treat! Walk to waterfall and caves beautiful. Truly a gem and would recommend it for a tranquil escape. 11km dirt road forces you to stay in, so take everything from salt and pepper (there are 2 braais and wood) to wine. Splash pool should be great in summer.
A little bit of heaven on earth

By far one of the best places we have ever been! How lucky we were to have found it. The lovely lodges are beautifully decorated. The environment is breathtaking. Giraffes, zebra's, horses, ostriches, turkeys and lots more are walking freely on the land which was a dream for the children. Many many thanks to Karen & Donald for making our stay one we will remember for ever!

Great for a quick bush breakaway! Enjoyed it thoroughly.
Easter at Caracal Lodge
irene Zvitambo, South Africa - 12 April 2012
My friends and I always have an annual Easter ritual getaway and this time we decided to try out Caracal Lodge, a decision I'm happy to say we have NOT regretted. The Lodge was amazing! The views stunning! And the hospitality, out of this world! What a high standard of excellence the owners have. We have now made this our Easter gateaway home.

A stunning lodge. The views from the lodge were magnificent. Not forgetting our breakfasts on the deck with views of giraffes and impalas. We enjoyed the picnic by the waterfalls and the game drive. This is the place to stay if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. The owners are friendly and go out of their way to make sure you're comfortable. Hats off to them. We enjoyed ourselves and we are making this our yearly getaway spot!

Comfortable and elegant self-catering accommodation in a delightful wild garden setting. Lovely scenery nearby. Unfortunately we didn't have time to go on a game drive.
Leigh Goodall, South Africa - 03 January 2012
It really is a truly awesome lodge. The scenery is breathtaking! We saw giraffe and zebra. It's the perfect place to go to reconnect to nature and yourself! I would recommend it to anyone that needs to escape the city life!

Caracal Lodge
Caracal Lodge offers self-catering luxury accommodation situated in the beautiful valley of Houtboshoek in Mpumalanga, only 48 km from Nelspruit and 100 km from the Kruger National Park. Caracal Lodge is a 300-hectare game farm comprising four luxury cottages.

The lodge offers various options of luxury accommodation, each with its own special features aimed at lovers of nature and wildlife. Figtree Lodge and Magtree Lodge are bush cottages for couples lit by gas and lamplight, with full self-catering facilities, while Kudu and Nyala Cottages are two-bedroom cottages, each with electricity and all amenities for self-catering.

We are situated in a beautiful valley with 360-degree views. The lodge is surrounded by beautiful grassy mountains, home to the mountain reedbuck, grey rhebuck, oribi and bushbuck, which occur naturally in the area. 300 hectares of unspoilt nature is home to the various species of game that have been introduced, including impala, livingstone eland, zebra, waterbuck, nyala, kudu, blue wildebeest, and giraffe. The shy Red duiker is often seen furtively feeding off the lawns of our two luxury bush lodges.

Take a hike or 4x4 drive around the ranch and enjoy the breathtaking views of the beautiful valley and view game at the same time. A babbling brook with crystal clear mountain water feeds the spectacular waterfall where you can enjoy a picnic, sundowner or a splash under the shade of the forest that surrounds it.
