About Pondoro Game Lodge
Pondoro is on the banks of the Olifants River inside the 50 000-hectare Balule Nature Reserve. There are no fences between Balule Nature Reserve and the Kruger National Park, which means all the animals move freely between Balule and the Kruger.
Pondoro Game Lodge has been operating as a commercial lodge for the past 22 years. We invite guests to indulge in the ultimate luxury when selecting anyone of our luxury suites during your stay. All our suites are air-conditioned and offer modern comforts. Each suite has a private wooden deck, a lounge area, a Jacuzzi and an outside shower for those who are adventurous at heart. We have three luxury chalets overlooking the Olifants River. Each chalet has an African theme, an en-suite bathroom with a shower overlooking the river, air-conditioning, mosquito nets and a wooden deck. Please note we do not accept children under the age of 12.
Meals are an extraordinary culinary experience where traditional African cuisine fuses effortlessly with modern European trends. To complement the food, guests can select wine from our extensive wine cellar. We cater for vegetarians and we serve all meals on a wooden deck high up in the tree canopy overlooking the Olifants River. An unforgettable bush dinner will await those who stay for a third night.
Regular Big 5 sightings include lion, elephant, rhino, buffalo and leopard. There was a reintroduction of African wild dogs in the Pondoro traversing area. Morning and evening game drives are in open game drive vehicles. All guides have more than five years’ experience. Pondoro has rights to traverse on more than 10 000 hectares that includes a network of more than 350 km of bush roads. All game drive vehicles are four-wheel drive and this means that we can follow the Big 5 off road into the bush to get a closer view if necessary.
Safari: Strict vehicle limits at sightings ensure the exclusivity of your game viewing experience.
Spa: Serenity Spa at Pondoro Game Lodge offers an indulgent escape from the wild, where one is surrounded by elegant décor and cascading waterfalls to create a relaxing ambient environment.
