Highlights:

  • Access to the exclusive Black Rhino Game Reserve as well as the Pilanesberg National Park
  • The solitude of the lodge.
  • Over 354 bird species to be spotted
  • A malaria-free experience and opportunity to see the Big 5

Description:

Lush Private Lodge is the newest addition to Black Rhino Game Reserve and stands out for its understated style and natural finishes, which emphasises the beauty of the surrounding wilderness.

The malaria-free park is a wilderness Eden, surrounded by the hills of a volcanic ring-dyke complex and containing both Kalahari and Lowveld biomes. Almost every animal species endemic to Southern Africa can be found here.

Lush Safari Lodge is family-owned and managed, offering luxury accommodation, dining, and a unique safari experience.

Tucked into a wooded hillside, Lush Safari Lodge comprises five luxury suites that provide the privacy of home, while the main lodge ensures you are well taken care of. It is the ideal safari destination for the sophisticated traveller, with a solid reputation for warm African hospitality, flawless service, and a stunning setting.

Lush only accepts children aged 12 and up, unless the Lodge is booked exclusively for a family or group getaway, in which case guests of all ages are welcome.

With exclusive traversing rights across 55 000 hectares of untamed bushveld, Lush guarantees guests an authentic and memorable safari experience, including the chance to see the Big Five, the endangered African wild dog, and a wide variety of other game species.

Accommodation

Each luxuriously appointed suite includes a king-sized bed (which can be converted to twin beds), a full bathroom with a freestanding tub, an open-air walk-in rain shower, an expansive wooden platform, and a plunge pool.

You can choose from three bush-facing and two mountain-facing suites. Covered walkways connect each and extended fold-back glass doors immerse you in nature even when you’re in your suite.

A refreshment station with bar fridge and coffee machine and a range of deluxe botanical-infused body products round off the suite amenities.

You can also indulge in the luxuriousness of full-length bathrobes of terry cotton, a hairdryer with two speed and three temperature settings and personally adjustable air-conditioning.

Outside is a private splash pool and deck, with cushioned loungers and two-seater table.

The multi-level guest hub includes a welcoming bar area, dining room, and sunken sitting room. The open-plan interior leads to a wraparound viewing deck where you can relax in the inviting outdoor living area or tuck into the delicious cuisine in the social outdoor dining space.

A traditional Boma is located near the main guest hub and is ideal for al fresco dinners with a central firepit and cosy barbeque evenings.

A breakfast bar with beverages and buffet options allow guests to help themselves or they can lounge on the viewing/dining deck with tables for meals, coffee breaks, and sundowners.

Wi-Fi is available for free throughout the lodge.
