ABOUT THE LODGE

Nestling in the shadows of the Waterberg Mountains, near Bela-Bela, Itaga Lodge is located in the greater Mabalingwe Nature Reserve - a Malaria free area of Limpopo Province and home to the 'Big 5'. Lions are contained in a separate high security, fenced area. Visits to the Lion Enclosure are subject to availability and must be pre-booked and paid directly at the lodge.

It takes only 2 hours to reach Itaga from Johannesburg and just over an hour from Pretoria, travelling via the national Polokwane road.
 
Itaga has earned a proud reputation as an exclusive but affordable luxury lodging establishment offering 8 tastefully appointed, air-conditioned / heated en-suite, African themed chalets. The rooms have private pergola covered patios and guests have a choice of either shower & bath, or shower only. Most rooms also feature a screened outdoor 'bush shower' for that exhilarating 'Out of Africa' experience!

The thatched central complex has a romantically appointed dining area; an intimate lounge with feature fireplace; a cocktail bar with viewing deck overlooking the floodlit waterhole; a cozy open-air bush boma; an all day tea & coffee refreshment station for the convenience of our guests; a DSTV loft lounge and library; a gift, curio and fashion goods boutique; a swimming pool with large sundeck, and indoor / outdoor conference facilities catering for up to 16 corporate delegates. The elevated 'upper deck' offers stunning views across the plains and the quiet solitude of this private location makes it the perfect place to witness sensational sunsets, whilst savouring the moment with a sundowner cocktail.

For the safety of our guests (and the protection of our Marula trees from mischievous elephant), the area surrounding the camp is encircled by an electrified game fence.
