Real guests • Real stays • Real opinions
Big 5 safari adventures do not get more personal, comfortable and memorable than a visit to Pondoro Game Lodge nestled on the banks of the Olifants river. The owners/managers Robbie and Lize Prehn were involved from the start in choosing the location and it is evident in every design feature and service that Pondoro is a labour of love. Pondoro only has eight thatched rooms, each beautifully dressed in African art and touch-me textiles, assuring a more personal safari experience. Experienced guides take small groups of up to eight on unforgettable game drives in Balule Private Nature Reserve - part of the world-renowned Kruger National Park - so, you are in prime position to explore South Africa’s incredible wildlife and landscape. Located in the heart of the bush, a Treehouse Hide, raised above ground with views of a waterhole, is also available for one-night stays. Back at the Lodge and the small Serenity Spa practices traditional South African treatments, while traditional African cuisine meets modern European flavours on the decked dining area, elevated above the river.
