Mbidi lodge offers a truly unique experience for those who love the African bush.

The Lodge provides a choice between self-catering chalets and camping. The accommodation units are thatched roofed, connected with demarcated paving paths and are situated under magnificent shade trees, where a Lion, Tiger or cheetah will welcome you as a neighbour.


All units are within close distance to the restaurant and bar, as with car parking.
