Thobeka Lodge is a rustic self-catering lodge crouched under large broad leafed trees. Each room is connected by wooden walkways that lead to a fully fitted kitchen, hot showers and toilets and a swimming pool.

We offer double rooms, dormitories and family rooms, built according to the Zulu culture. Each room is separated by a rustic wooden walkway allowing you the privacy and space to kick back and enjoy uninterrupted relaxation time and includes comfortable beds, mosquito nets and a fan for those warm lazy afternoons and balmy African evenings.

Our self-catering kitchen is well-stocked with cooking utensils, crockery and fridges as well as tea, coffee and sugar. We provide hot showers and toilets as well as a laundry service at a small fee so you can put on some clean clothing after enjoying a hot revitalising shower.
