Set in the Grietjie Private Nature Reserve, part of the Greater Kruger Park, Adonsonia Lodge is a small family run Bed & Breakfast offering an affordable stay in the African bush.
Originally built as a farmhouse, the house has been extended over time adding 3 spacious rooms, all with private bathrooms and their own entrance, while still retaining the sense of a family home. Following a substantial renovation all rooms and bathrooms have been refurbished and redecorated and we now look forward to sharing our little piece of paradise set in the unspoiled African bush. With a maximum of 4 visitors at any time you are ensured of personal attention and service.
With a variety of trees and shrubs we have many birds visiting our garden including African Green Pigeons, Woodlands Kingfishers and even on occasion Ground Hornbills. Our resident Bushbuck graze on the lawn or rest under the bushes and a troupe of mischievous Vervet monkeys sleep in the trees surrounding the lodge, providing amusement in the afternoons and a wake up call in the morning! Elephant, giraffe and other game is regularly seen in the dry river bed at the end of the garden or in the grassy area behind the lodge, and we have chosen for minimal fencing so that you truly feel close up and personal with our animal visitors.
A large shady thatched porch offers a place to sit and relax and enjoy the stunning views over the koppie with regular wildlife sightings, while a splash pool provides a welcome place to cool off from the midday heat. There is also a guest living room with a small library and a collection of interesting objects found in and around the lodge, inviting you to discover more about the bush and it's inhabitants. In the evening meals (provided on request) can be served under the thatched lapa or on the patio under the stars, and when it gets cooler a large firepit provides a warm and comforting place to sit and listen to the sounds of the bush.
