December Safari Deal – Mjejane River Lodge!

Mjejane River Lodge
is an exclusive lodge situated within the revered Mjejane Game Reserve. This private Big 5 Game Reserve is incorporated into the southern Kruger National Park.
Perched on the banks of the Crocodile River and surrounded by thousands of hectares of raw African wilderness, it is here that the paths of predators and prey cross…
It is here that you are assured of a breathtaking wildlife experience.

December Safari Deal: Mjejane River Lodge

From the first friendly welcome, to your journey of discovery through the African bush, to a starlit dinner around a dancing fire, Mjejane River Lodge is a truly unforgettable destination.

This is an experience that speaks to the soul and mind.  From the moment you breathe the fresh Bushveld air to the time you witness a pride of lions strolling past, or when an inquisitive elephant herd joins you for sundowners by the river – it’s magic!

Enjoy:

*Morning game drives in the Kruger National Park and afternoon game drives on the Mjejane Reserve.
*A refreshing dip in the Swimming Pool.
*Dining under the stars with a roaring fire in the Mjejane Boma.

December Safari Deal: Mjejane River Lodge - Suite  

Experience the thrill of searching for the Big Five on a reserve with 11km of river frontage and a private bridge over the Crocodile River for direct access to the Kruger Park.   You will hear the sounds of the African bush and its deafening silence – a silence that may suddenly be broken by the whooping of hyaenas…  the reverberating roar of a lion…  the loud grunting of hippos…  the majestic trumpeting of elephants…   or the haunting cry of the fish eagle.  Your senses will awaken as never before to soak up a host of new experiences that will feed your soul.

There are 10 standard rooms and 7 luxury rooms overlooking the serene waters of the Crocodile River.   All rooms have en-suite bathrooms, hair dryers, tea & coffee stations, mini-bar fridges and private patios.

Attractions nearby include the beaches of Mozambique, the Kingdom of Swaziland, scenic Panorama route, fabulous golf courses, agricultural tours, elephant encounters and chimpanzee sanctuary.
