Guests receive a warm African welcome as they step into the cool, open-air reception area of the expansive Main Lodge.
The sounds and smells of the bush are carried in on the breeze, wafting gently through full-length glass sliding doors into a spacious thatched restaurant. An enormous wooden deck steps down into a large Infinity Pool which provides one-of-a-kind views of the Lowveld’s rolling hills and valleys.
Our Luxury Safari Tents blend gently into the natural setting on the hillside, creating a peaceful and romantic atmosphere.
Pitched atop a 45m2 wooden deck, our twelve permanent safari-style tents offer breathtaking views over the bushveld. Roll up the side panels of your tents, and fall asleep to an African breeze that carries with it, the calming sounds and smells of nature.
All of the air-conditioned tents feature King-sized beds (or 2 ¾ beds on request), an en-suite bathroom with a shower, a mini-bar (stocked on request) with tea and coffee making facilities.
A maximum of two adults can share a luxury tent.
Regrettably, no children under 12 are permitted in the tented accommodation.
Families with smaller children can be accommodated in our Superior Rooms and Luxury Suites.
Tucked elegantly into the trees and natural environment of Muluwa, the eight Superior Rooms are both private and generous in size, with private decks that offer the perfect place to greet the sunrise each morning.
Our eight 40m2 Superior Rooms accommodate a King-sized bed (or 2 ¾ beds on request). The spacious en-suite bathroom provides both shower and bathtub facilities. An open plan lounge spills out onto the private wooden deck. For those unable to pull themselves away from Africa’s beauty, outdoor showers are a feature of all Superior Rooms. Air-conditioning and a mini-bar (stocked on request) with tea and coffee making facilities complete the in-room facilities.
Superior Rooms accommodate a maximum of 2 adults and two children under the age of 12.
(Children are accommodated on sleeper couches which are on request and subject to availability).
Our most beautiful accommodation offering at Muluwa Lodge is our two Luxury Suites, each with their own private plunge pool, providing an extra splash of luxury.
Elevated on the hillside, both of the 45m2 fully air-conditioned Luxury Suites offer a King-sized bed and an elegant en-suite bathroom with both a shower and freestanding bathtub. An open plan lounge offers a mini-bar (stocked on request) and opens onto a private wooden deck boasting an additional open-air shower and a private plunge pool.
Luxury Suites accommodate a maximum of 2 adults and 2 children under 12.
Twin bedding is optional. (Children are accommodated on sleeper couches which are on request and subject to availability)
For those looking for only a taste of the outdoor experience, the estate upon which Muluwa Lodge is situated has a crisscrossing network of dirt trails, providing short walks which take guests through the scenic Lowveld landscape, allowing them to mingle with the resident on-site wildlife.
Mpumalanga is both one of the best and most beautiful mountain-biking spots in South Africa. A wealth of trails provides tracks of varying difficulty, giving both novice and expert riders something to perfectly suit their riding ability.
Whatever your preference, the treasure trove of bike trails available in the area allows avid riders to enjoy the bushveld scenery from the saddle.
Muluwa Lodge offers some gentle on-site biking opportunities thanks to a network of dirt tracks on the property. Perfect for an early morning pick-me-up before breakfast.
On the banks of the Estate’s dam, not far from the main building at Muluwa Lodge, is the MAC Hide. The Hide gives our guests a secluded hideout from which they can observe the resident wildlife congregating at the watering hole. The luckiest visitors get to see the awkward split-like stance taken by the giraffe as its head has to travel almost 6 metres down to enjoy a drink.
Water attracts not only big game, but throngs of bird-life too. The Hide is a bird-watcher’s paradise as the area’s feathered visitors drink, bathe and fish at the Dam.
What better way to end off a day of game viewing or visiting Mpumalanga’s many sights than from our sunset hill, which has an unbeatable view over the Lowveld.
Guests do however, need access to a 4×4 vehicle to access this area.
Muluwa can assist with setting up a surprise, or prepare for a special occasion upon request.
If you are in search of something faster than the gentle strolling pace of a hike but slower than the thundering speed of a mountain bike, you are in luck.
Short and technical, long meandering and everything in between, Mpumalanga offers a host of trail running options suitable for everyone from novice to expert.
