Welcome to Mhangela Lodge

Mhangela Lodge is located in the Grietjie Private Nature Reserve which is part of the Balule Reserve and thus it is part of the open system of the Greater Kruger National Park. Geographically the lodge is in the Limpopo Province in the Northern part of South Africa, bordering

Mozambique and Zimbabwe including most of the Kruger National Park. You can reach the lodge by car from Johannesburg International Airport or via plane directly to Hoedspruit or Phalaborwa airports. 

The lodge offers 3 luxury suites for guests wanting to experience the African Lowveld bush and the Greater Kruger National Park. Mhangela offers 2 game drives daily in the “BIG 5” reserve.

The kitchen is international and exquisite and offers as well vegetarian and vegan options beside the fish and meat specialities. All suites are individually decorated and open to the big wild bush garden overlooking the game reserve. The Mhangela* lodge itself has been carefully renovated considering ecology and conservation. Mhangela lodge has a comfortable and earthy feel and offers a luxurious but calming and relaxing atmosphere. You can select between an “all inclusive package” consisting of all meals, house wines and soft drinks as well as 2 game drives per day with an experienced field guide on the open game viewer (recommended) or you select a B & B option and add your meals or game drives/ bush walks individually.

* Mhangela means in Shangaan & Tsonga – languages in Limpopo and Mozambique – Guinea Fowl
