Thutlwa Safari Lodge


Thutlwa Safari Lodge is a luxury, exclusive-use, self-catering, lodge situated in the heart of the Black Rhino Game Reserve within the Pilanesberg National Park. Strategically designed to accommodate a group of friends on a breakaway, or families – including those with young children – Thutlwa Safari Lodge affords its guests the opportunity to experience the magic of a South African safari – without a stiff itinerary or the restricting parameters one can expect from a publicly accessible lodge. If you’re looking to enjoy some downtime in the bush, with access to Big 5 game-viewing at your leisure and on your own time, the luxurious Thutlwa Safari Lodge is the perfect space that invites an exclusive escape.

With groups and families in mind, the lodge sleeps a maximum of 8 adults in 4 standalone luxury (80m2) thatched-chalets. Each unit boasts a beautiful en-suite bathroom that features a double shower, a stone bath and of course for the real nature-lovers, a private outdoor shower – enjoy the sights and sounds of the bush ‘on-tap’.


Enjoy your time in the reserve how-ever you choose! Daily game-drives can be tailored to meet the specific needs of your group, allowing you the flexibility to come and go as you see fit. The exclusivity of the lodge means anyone in your group can join-in on a drive; age-restrictions and time-limits do not apply. All game-drives are conducted in an open safari vehicle that is limited to 10 passengers.
