For a family safari holiday in the bush choose the Ethnic Delight Safari package. The lodge is a bush retreat in the Balule Nature Reserve.
Classic Greater Kruger Safari Experience
Enjoy a three night and four day stay on the Ethnic Delight Package in this 4-star green oasis in the bush. The lodge is nestled under age-old trees with a panoramic view over the bush and onto a well-frequented waterhole.
With only six African Rondawels and two Family Lodges, you will enjoy the intimacy and privacy of a small camp. The rooms, with al fresco showers, are decorated using indigenous themes inspired by local tradition and culture. Gourmet meals are served in unusual surroundings, reflecting the spirit of your safari adventure in the Balule Nature Reserve.
Whether sipping sundowners on a game drive or relaxing beside the sparkling pool, guests soon discover that the accent is on comfort and unobtrusive attentiveness. The lodge is centrally situated and thus an ideal base from which to explore the area. The magnificent Panorama Route and the Blyde River Canyon are nearby as well as the Orpen and Phalaborwa gates for the Kruger National Park.
