Each of the six suites at Rock Lodge boast a stunning private deck overlooking the riverine valley below and a plunge pool to cool off from the African heat.  The suites all have large bath tubs to soak in while taking in the view of the beautiful surroundings and indoor showers.  Whilst three suites also have outdoor showers to add that little bit extra.

 

King size beds, separate lounge areas, air conditioning, mini bars and day beds also add to the luxurious feel of Rock Lodge.

 

Facilities

The main area at Rock Lodge is beautifully designed to make the most of the stunning location.  The wooden deck has a perfect view of the white face of Leopard Rock whilst the waterhole entices the wildlife out from the forest to quench their thirst.

 

Climb the rustic ladder to the roof and marvel at the truly breathtaking vista that awaits you.  Private intimate dining in your suite, admiring the view on the main deck or with newly acquired friends in the cozy dining room, at Rock Lodge the choice is yours.
