Makweti Safari Lodge is an experience for the discerning wildlife aficionado. Timelessly African, it embodies the eras of Livingstone and Hemingway, while standing as a model of modern, environmentally sensitive taste.
The Lodge caters to no more than 10 guests, with five luxury suites that blend seductively into an ideal safari landscape.
This landscape is a natural home for Africa’s “Big Five” – elephant, rhinoceros, buffalo, lion, and leopard. Makweti has no fences, so the Big Five, zebra, wildebeest, and a host of other iconic species wander freely through the Lodge’s surrounds. Often, these wild “owners of the terrain” come for refreshment to the stream-fed waterhole just 80 yards from the open lounge and viewing deck.
Beyond the waterhole, Makweti’s luxury suites and dining room command panoramic views across a gorge-defined valley, toward infinite blue hills beyond.
These views, and many other enchanting vistas, extend across one of Southern Africa’s largest private game reserves – a wilderness expanse of some 40,000 hectares. For Makweti’s guests, the reserve stands open in its entirety to wonder-filled exploration.
Makweti’s location is moreover malaria-free, with a temperate and invigorating climate.
Makweti Safari Lodge was founded in 1995, and its management and staff embody decades of experience in creating memorable stays for a discerning international clientele.
