About Mhondoro Game Lodge
The paths to the main game lodge and between the chalets offer tantalizing glimpses of the waterhole situated just in front of the game lodge.
The main game lodge has a large viewing sundeck where guests are welcome to bide away the time. The crystal clear swimming pool is blessedly cool and inviting on hot summer days under the African sun.
The central dining room, bar, outdoor boma and gym are all situated in or around the main game lodge and are easily accessible from the chalets. The nearby chalet houses with a well stocked library and entertainment centre that also serves as an exclusive venue for small corporate retreats.
Mhondoro Lodge Accommodation
Four luxuriously appointed private game lodge chalets are located along the ridge overlooking the waterhole and adjacent plains with the Waterberg mountains in the distance. A maximum of 10 guests may stay at the game lodge, ensuring personal attention and care from your hosts at all times.
Each chalet has its own elegant sense of style and décor, designed to make you feel pampered, spoiled and special. Large double sliding doors exit onto your private viewing sundeck where you can relax and watch Africa pass by below you.
The en-suite bathrooms have a choice of indoor shower, hippo sized bath or a secluded outdoor shower where you can pelt yourself with steaming hot water.
Mhondoro Lodge Cuisine
Dining is an experience at Mhondoro. Breakfasts, after your early morning game drive, are either full English breakfasts at the lodge or 'bush breakfasts' in the wild. Picnics en route or lunches at the lodge are available for those arriving mid-day.
Afternoon tea will be served shortly before your afternoon game drive. Four course dinners range from superb international cuisine served at the lodge's dining room to braai's served in the open air boma around a wood fire under the African skies. Mhondoro boasts a wine cellar fully stocked with the best South African wines.
Mhondoro Lodge Activities
Driving through the reserve in the 4 wheel drive game viewing vehicle, after your arrival at the main gate, you will be treated to your first sighting of the reserve's permanent residents: Impala, Warthog, Giraffe, Rhino, Kudu, Eland, Elephant and many others.
Your hosts are knowledgeable and friendly and will keep you entertained throughout your early morning and afternoon game viewing drives. Their love of the bush is infectious and you'll soon find yourself eagerly waiting for the next animal anecdote or tidbit of information.
Guests are treated to snacks and a welcome drink at the Main Gate boma and are then transferred directly to the Lodge. Sundowners and snacks are served on the evening game drives. The rangers usually choose magnificent spots such as atop a mountain ridge where you can stand and stare at the majestic beauty around you and enjoy a fine South African chardonnay. Hot beverages and snacks will keep you warm on the early morning drives.
