Kusudalweni Safari Lodge Accommodation
The Main Lodge
The Main Lodge at Kusudalweni Safari Lodge & Spa is a spacious structure of warm, natural wood and thatch with ample verandas that wrap around our various dining- and entertainment areas. Here you will find a crystal-clear swimming pool, restaurant, curio shop, communal lounges and bar.
Stroll from your private luxury chalet down the meandering wooden walkways to enjoy a relaxing drink beside the pool as the heat of the day settles on the bushveld soil and take a moment to drink in the stark beauty of the African continent. Alternatively, get comfortable in the lounge and take advantage of the complimentary Wi-Fi or learn more about the wonders of Africa in our well stocked library.
At Kusudalweni Safari lodge & Spa we have 4 luxurious detached thatched chalets (3 x 1 bedroomed and 1 x 2 bedroomed family chalet), set individually at the end of meandering walkways that link to the Main Lodge. Each chalet is hidden from view by the natural bush surroundings and with this in mind, the locations of the rooms as well as the wooden walkways were carefully chosen to ensure that our presence here has the least possible impact on the environment.
Contemporary and luxuriously furnished the chalets are stylish with an understated opulence, our rooms were designed and decorated to allow for a decidedly unique Bushveld stay. Imagine a cool, calm oasis of crisp, white Percale linen, gentle air-conditioning and utter privacy where you can retreat to enjoy a refreshing afternoon rest, peaceful evening slumber or linger on your private deck over a glass of wine or a good book. Each chalet has its own private plunge pool/ Jacuzzi for your enjoyment.

Kusudalweni Safari Lodge Reviews
We have stayed at Kusudalweni Safari Lodge and had a wonderful time. Wish we could stay longer. The rooms are beautiful and so relaxing. This was perfect and is great for the whole family. Thank you Maria and Dave. – Reynard v
Maria, Dave and their lovely Golden Retriever Jessica made our stay in Kusudalweni unforgettable. They always made sure to make our days full of experiences and we really felt being cuddled all the time. Their chef Joy was simply amazing and the braai (bbq) quite an “Afrikaner” experience. Remove all the dust from a day safariing in the private jacuzzi overlooking the reserve was the icing on the cake… we already miss it! – MarkTorna
We stayed here with friends for 3 nights and had an incredible time. Maria and Dave have created a luxurious lodge in beautiful surroundings with a number of equally luxurious chalets in the grounds. Joy and Tiani created wonderful food everyday we were there. Elardus was great fun as a guide on the numerous game drives that we did and Leonard have us a nice bush walk. If you find yourself there you must take a visit to West and walk with his white lions, it’s an incredible experience. I wish Maria and Dave every success with this venture. Absolutely worth a visit. – Bovington-Smythe
