Kurhula Wildlife Lodge is a beautiful place overlooking a river and run by very nice people. We had excellent dinners and breakfasts (thank you, Kim !). We took a pleasant morning walk with a very knowledgeable guide.

About
Description
Kurhula Wildlife Lodge is situated on the banks of the always flowing Olifants River in Balule, Parsons Nature Reserve. Balule Private Nature Reserve borders the Kruger Nation Park. Most of the fences between the ...More Kruger Park and bordering private nature reserves have been removed so animals can move around freely. From Kurhula Wildlife Lodge you can acces the Kruger Park for a day trip via the Phalaborwa ((1 hour drive) or Orpen gate (1.5 hour drive). Kurhula Wildlife Lodge is particularly valued for its high personal service, excellent home cooked cuisine and beautiful surroundings. Our aim is not to show our guests the Big Five, but to educate them about the synergy between animals, flora and human being. The best of ‘in the heart of nature’ in combination with western comforts, contributes to a unique experience! Less
