Thokozani Lodge is a small country style Guest House that offers you a pleasant, private and family atmosphere.

The charming thatched houses are nestled in a wonderful subtropical garden with huge trees and palms, which is a paradise for a wide variety of birds (we spotted over 90 species). The big swimming pool cools you down in the heat and makes your swim enjoyable. Deck chairs and a thatched sun shelter are provided for your convenience.

Feel free to walk around the farm. You can walk down to the banks of the White River and enjoy pure African nature. Watch the birds, lizards, mongoose, rock and water monitors or simply lie on the rocks and dream. For the more energetic, there is horse riding, golf, tennis, squash and other activities nearby.

When you have had enough of the sun or it rains - no problem! Come to the house, sit under the sheltered veranda or enjoy the lounge. Here you can read, listen to music or just relax. Help yourself to free coffee or tea. There is also a selection of games and a billiard room.

Enjoy the sunset, sip a drink on the terrace and watch bats hunting in the dusk.

At night you can sit around the fireplace under a million stars. Listen to the sound of the Bush Crickets or the call of the Wood Owl.

On request we will serve you with a delicious continental breakfast.
