About Kanya Lodge

Kanya Lodge is the ideal lodge for a quiet getaway from city life, a privately owned lodge inside the Mabalingwe nature reserve situated 28 km from Bela Bela and 140 km from Pretoria.

Tucked away in the bush with four en-suite bedrooms, you can sit on the patio and watch game come right up to the lodge. A private pool, a boma and an open braai facility completes the picture, plus there are bush showers so one can really experience nature. We welcome our guests, but we do request the highest respect for Nature, the animals and our property. Kanya Lodge is unfortunately not available for parties (matriculation parties, year-end parties, bachelor parties, etc.), and no music is allowed, as it disturbs the bush life and the neighbours.

Spoil yourself at Kanya lodge for a relaxing and peaceful getaway to the bush that will be memorable..

Safari: Do game viewing in your own vehicle or arrange a game drive in the morning or late afternoon. You can also stay at the lodge and watch animals as they roam freely on the reserve and lots visit the lodge daily.

      From the time we engaged with Chloe a few months ago, all bookings and arrangements where friendly and professional. The family from Australia and my immediate family had a great time. The lodge is fit for a king.

      We loved the lodge, comfortable with all everything you need. We saw a lot of wild animals, only a couple of meters from the braai area. I have not seen the stars at night as bright as this in years! We would love to revisit this facility again in future!
