The lodge is only a three and half hour drive from Johannesburg and only half an hours drive from the Malelane Gate of the world-famous Kruger National Park. African Rest is an ideal base from which to explore Big 5 country as well as the scenic wonders of Swaziland and the attractions of Mozambique.African Rest is peaceful and secluded, with beautiful scenic views and bushveld surrounds that makes for an ideal home base that is peaceful but not too far from the madding crowds. A warm, friendly welcome is always assured. The lodge offers accommodation in individual double en-suite rooms as well as self-catering chalets and there is a beautiful pool to cool down from the hot Lowveld sun.Our stylishly decorated on-site restaurant offers a superb eat-out experience and guests can enjoy the finest food, prepared with love and perfection, to tickle your taste buds.

  • "Not Impressed with SafariNow"

    15 January 2018

    "Upon arrival African Rest was not aware of our booking. I had to show them my confirmation of booking and then they prepared a room for us. So I think the problem was with the booking agent (SafariNow) and not African Rest."

  • "Great service"

    19 June 2017

    "I can highly recommend a stay at African Rest Lodge! The manager, Sipho, did an amazing job making us feel at home. We got an upgraded room, which was clean and was more than we needed. The Lodge and pool area were well maintained and beautiful. Dinner was offered to be brought to our rooms and tasted divine! All in all a very relaxing and enjoyable stay!"

  • "Lacks personal touches"

    01 July 2016

    "Room was clean and fine for just sleeping over but lacks personal touches. No mirror or plug in room. No chair to sit on in room, basically just a bed and a cupboard. The kitchen and lounge is an open area, but the lounge contains two single beds and a TV against the wall, no chair to sit on to watch TV. Although self catering, I would not recommend it if you wish to make your own food, no microwave, only a small bar fridge, two pots only, no pans or utensils."
