Tshwene Lodge

Project Description

Surrounded by magnificent rock outcrops, Tshwene Lodge is a secluded oasis in the rugged valley of the Taaibos River. The Chacma baboon, after which the lodge is named, calls late at night to alert of pending danger. Rich in bird life, Tshwene offers peace and tranquillity for those seeking to get away from it all.


Tshwene Lodge is comprised of five luxurious suites, situated for exhilarating views of the valleys below and the hills beyond. Unwind in the comfort of a double room with bathroom en-suite, an indoor and private outdoor shower, and breathtaking African views. From your private wooden deck listen to the calls of a passing herd of elephant, or watch the African sun set the bush ablaze as it sinks over the horizon, in this malaria-free paradise. Watch the game on the mountainside from the comfort of your bed.

Main Lodges & Cuisine

Nestled within a rock outcrop, Tshwene Lodge is intimate and peaceful. The main facilities include two lounges, refreshing swimming pool, bar, dining room and outdoor dining boma, set on a huge wooden patio with magnificent views. All meals are prepared by our local chef for a delicious culinary experience.
