Makalali Private Game Lodge, place of rest, was an old cattle farm when it was bought in the early nineties.
Makalali Private Game Lodge provides a dining experience that is relaxed and informal. Our chefs produce a line up of dining experiences, from dinner in the bush to a ‘boma dinner’ under the stars. We pride ourselves on going ‘the extra mile’ and creating exclusive settings, whether it’s for a romantic wedding, a conference, or private dining event.
Restocking and regeneration of the veld were top priorities, but so was creating a lodge with a difference. The innovative design was conceived by Sylvio Rech who envisaged a lodge built under the giant trees that guard the river. Makalali Private Game Lodge offers a range of activities from rafting, abseiling, hot air balloon rides, golfing excursions, to visiting the Cheetah Breeding Project.
