Tanamera Lodge is nestled on the malaria-free slopes of the Sabie River Valley, offering luxurious accommodation and breathtaking Lowveld scenery. Being centrally located, guests are able to explore the Lowveld Panorama, including sights such as God's Window, the Blyde River Canyon and Pilgrim's Rest. We are 4 Star graded and offer beautifully decorated rooms with personal touches and attention to detail. Each chalet is complete with a tea and coffee selection, a log fireplace to keep you warm over wintry nights, and ceiling fans for hot summer nights. With the Kruger National Park's Phabeni Gate just a short 30-minute drive, our visitors may easily access this world-renowned Big 5 reserve on self-driven or guided safari tours. This is a birder’s paradise and home to birds such as the Narina Trogon and Purple Crested Turaco. Activities in the area include abseiling, white water rafting, microlight flights, elephant encounters, horseback riding and much more! We outsource spa treatments from massage to reflexology to manicures and pedicures, all brought to you in the privacy of your own chalet. A couple's massage is ideal for a romantic getaway.Our five magnificent Luxury Chalets are fully serviced and offer king-size beds with mosquito nets, stone baths, waterfall showers, fireplaces and plunge pools. In addition to this the two Honeymoon Chalets offer open-door outside showers on private decks with outstanding valley views and a sitting room and dining area. Each Chalet is secluded, private and surrounded by the unspoilt indigenous bush. Tanamera is perfect for romantic getaways. The main lodge area is tastefully decorated and comprises a dining area, a lounge and a comfortable bar area. You can step down onto our main deck where there is a rim-flow pool and absorb the exceptional views over the cascading Sabie River Valley. Meals are served in our main lodge area, on the candle-lit deck, or privately in your chalet or on your deck. Rates include dinner as well as bed and breakfast.

We just spent 3 nights at Tanamera and absolutely loved everything about it! The setting is gorgeous, the main lodge and decor is tasteful and welcoming and the staff is over the top helpful and accommodating. Ian was always checking in with us and chatted with us about the lodge, the area and his expertise. Susan, Precious and Joyce spoiled us with such graceful dining and room service, always with a smile and gentle way. The food was also delicious! Chef Davey is amazing! The rooms were tasteful and so comfortable with views over the river valley, even from the bath and toilet! Such a relaxing and beautiful place, we didn’t leave the property one of the days we were there!
Highly recommended!!!

Tanamera will definitely see us again. Friendly staff, with delicious food. It peaceful and private, one of the best romantic getaway destinations we've seen. The staff even washed my car before leaving without any questions asked - nothing is too much for them.

We were on our honeymoon and they paid attention to that by putting rose petals on the bed, fresh flowers and a postcard in the room. Very nice! The dining room in colonial style is very stylish and cosy. Excellent breakfast, nice diner and very friendly staff. Very big room with bath and luxurious shower, a fireplace and a mini fridge. Nice terrace with a stunning view and plunge bath, but due too the bad weather we couldn't use it.

A load of excitement as you meander down this dirt road surrounded by trees, and all of a sudden, you are there. The views are just out of this world and one of the best we have ever seen. The rooms are well laid out, but the furnishings made it feel like a hotel rather than a lodge. A solar heater for the plunge pool would help take the bite off. The staff were friendly and helpful, dinner was a disappointment, but fortunately, breakfast ticked all the boxes.

Responded 18 Jan 2022
Good day Patrick P Thank you for your review. Unfortunately due to our position of the lodge, with all the bluegum tree around, we do not have the space to put a solar heater for eight swimming pools and thatch roofs are not capable of supporting a solar heater. I am surprised that you feel that the dinner was disappointing as we seldom get criticisms with regards to our food. Kind regards, Ian Burger General Manager

We visited the lodge for a romantic getaway. Yhe rooms are spectacular with a romantic fireplace, beautiful verandah overlooking stunning views of a valley with our very own private plunge pool. The beds were super comfortable and the bathroom was beautiful with a romantic batch and amazing shower. The food was excellent and there was so much for us to see and visit during the day in yhe area. Absolutely stunning. Thanks so much for making our anniversary so memorable. We will certainly be back. This place is unlike anything we have ever stayed at.

I was phoned and offered a better room than the one I have booked a few months ago. After travelling on a dirt road, we were warmly welcomed by Ian and Marita. Bongani immediately offered to take our luggage to the room. The service we have received from all the staff was exceptional and all our requests were fulfilled without any delay.

The room was specially prepared for us with flowers and bubbly. The view down the valley, from the veranda is magnificent. The rooms is spacious and luxurious. We have spend most of our time in the splash pool on the veranda due to the nice sunny weather.

The restaurant was very nice and the food delicious.

I really cannot find fault and can recommend the lodge to all and sundry.

The staff were very professional both over the phone and on site. They upgraded us to the honeymoon suite once they were notified that it is our anniversary weekend.
Upon arrival we were met with awesome views and friendly smiles.

Our room was decorated with roses and candles and a nice bubbly on ice. The rooms are very private and very spacious.

The food was absolutely amazing! The food and service was something one would expect from a top restaurant.

The views are breathtaking and the pool is a really nice addition.

They have security guards on site patrolling the area, which gives a nice and safe feeling.

I would certainly visit Tanamera again without doubt.

It is A lovely relaxing stay, The Views are absolutely beautiful. Philip, Ian and the team are very warm hosts. Thank you. Food was delicious. Such a treat to sit on your private deck and have breakfast. The room we did find a bit tired looking and could do with a revamp also did not like the smell of smoke from the fireplace in the room. Overall a very pleasant stay.

Tanamera is hidden gem overlooking sabie river. We enjoyed staying in our private luxury cabin with a river view . Dinner nights are spectacular, 5 star service with a 3 course meals served on the deck during favorable weather conditions. Overall food presentation & taste for both dinner and breakfast was exceptional. However, the portion size was a bit small especially for an African man like my husband. None the less they did increase the portion the following day after we told them. Special thanks to Princess and Precious for great service, we really felt at home. The owners Janice Lowe and her husband, they really made us feel at home. We will definitely return

Stayed for 2 nights at the river view chalet, great setting for a relaxing break. The lodge is close to several towns to experience some of the best scenery in the area. The staff really make you feel welcome and go the extra mile to make the stay special. Thank you Ian and your team.
