African Rock Lodge in Hoedspruit

African Rock Lodge is situated close to the Kruger National Park in the heart of the African wilderness on the Hoedspruit Wildlife Estate. Upon arrival at African Rock Lodge you will experience a series of sensory revelations. You will enter one of the most beautiful pieces of nature South Africa has to offer and you will see the uninterrupted bushveld where some animals could be roaming around you.

As in nature, everything at African Rock Lodge exists in harmony to blend into the bush and you are immediately aware of a feeling of calm and renovating spirit. You will stay in a luxurious suite with a private patio; awake to the calls of the birds and enjoy a scrumptious breakfast on our outside patio. Each suite offers an en-suite bathroom with everything you can dream of, as well as Internet access and thorough cleanliness that one would expect of a luxurious bush lodge.

Have a drink in the lapa or our bar, take a plunge in our sparking pool, dine in the open dining room or in our boma and enjoy great walks to discover the surrounding nature. What you will find as an unexpected surprise is the unsurpassed hospitality of your hosts. Dinners can be arranged a day in advance.

Prepare yourself for conversation, kindness, helpfulness, generosity and a twinge of sadness when you must finally leave. Thrilling safaris and breathtaking tours, lavish settings and decadent cuisine combined with Gerard's and Yvonne's famous hospitality ensure that each and every guest experiences true African magic during their stay.
