Ekuthuleni Lodge (a place of peace) is set in open bushveld where the giraffe like to browse and are often seen. It has wonderful mountain views from each bedroom and living room building and has been designed to maximise the enjoyment of this special setting. The living area is an open plan kitchen, dining and lounge area opening onto a covered deck which faces east and is shady and cool in the afternoons. There is a walkway to the boma set under a spreading acacia tree where you can sit around the fire to chat with friends after a day in the bush. Each bedroom is in its own separate building and each has a deck facing the Lebombo Mountains. Each bathroom has an outdoor shower - but made private by a wooden fence enclosure. The equipped kitchen has a gas stove and fridge/freezer and a housekeeper comes in daily.
