South Africa calls our hosts back home as they travel to Limpopo. Fez and Anesu stay in 5-star chalets that were converted from traditional Venda huts. They then explore the diverse and abundant wildlife and cosy up to crocodiles and hippos in a beautiful lakeside lodge,  Bambuu Lakeside Lodge, and get up close and personal with some of the biggest land mammals in the world.

Fez and Anesu then go mountain biking, clay making, do some serene yoga in nature all before an adrenaline rush on the big swing that flies through one of the most picturesque places in the whole of SA!

Bambuu Lakeside Lodge

Enjoy the luxury of a Private Game Reserve but at a fraction of the cost. Bambuu Lakeside Lodge is sprawled out on the banks of its own private lake. Its reflection in the calm waters is a promise of the luxury, peace and tranquility and is easily accessible from the Main Road between Hazyview and Sabie.


Guests can start their day off with a delicious breakfast. Enjoy your meal while appreciating the view of the still waters below. The more active guest can enjoy our on-site hiking trail or nearby activities such as abseiling, river rafting and biking. The closest gate into the Kruger National Park, namely Phabeni Gate, is a mere 25km from the lodge. We are also situated on the famous Panorama Route where guests can enjoy landmark sightings like God’s Window and one of the only green canyons in the world, namely the Blyde River Canyon.


After a day of adventure, return to the tranquility of the lodge to unwind with a drink at the bar, or to take a cooling dip in the infinity pool. End the evening off by watching twilight darken the sky and reveal a clear and star-filled night.
