To get your bearings, Greenfire Game Lodge is located within the 50 000 hectare Balule Nature Reserve which lies adjacent to the greater Kruger National Park area. It’s smaller lodge than most, and therefore more intimate, nestled in a totally natural setting along the seasonal Mohlabetsi River - a huge draw for the local animals, and a bonus for you when it comes to game viewing.
Walk out along one of the decks or take a dip in the pool, and it won’t be long before you spot a few elephants of all sizes and elegant-looking kudus moving slowly through the surrounding bush.
The setting is hard to top, but its the staff that really make this lodge exceptional. They are friendly and accommodating but without being too attentive which can sometimes be a bit disruptive when you’re trying to spend some time to yourself. During meal times and game drives at Greenfire Game lodge, it’s fair to say that no effort is spared and the service is always on point.
Besides the Big 5, you’ll come across an abundant collection of birds and smaller mammals as the qualified rangers guide you through the reserve, explaining the intricacies of the bush in detail. They’ll also take the time to visit you during dinner at the boma to make sure you are comfortable, and perhaps even stay a while to share a story or two by the fire.
