Vaalkrans Lodge

An Authentic African Bush Experience

Located on the banks of the Gxetu river is the Vaalkrans tented safari lodge that combines luxury accommodation with an African bush experience, perfect for the explorers at heart. Enjoy the warmth of South African hospitality and traditional cuisine, while immersed in the Eastern Cape bushveld, for an experience of a lifetime.


Unforgettable Lodging

The newly built main lodge, with its contemporary style inspired by nature, is completely eco-friendly and off the grid. It offers a spectacular place for elegant local dining, lounging around the magnificent fireplace, and soaking up the tranquility of the wilderness right on the waters edge.

Luxury Tents

Our eco-lodge includes nine simple yet sophisticated high-quality tents, designed to give you a luxury experience immersed while in the African bush. Each tent is equipped with either a double or two single beds, an ensuite bathroom with shower, plenty of cupboard space, plug points, heating and other necessary modern amenities. Nestle up under the covers with a hot water bottle and let the sounds of the evening hum you to sleep for an exclusive tented safari experience.

Unique Dining

Meals are served in the main lodge where clients are invited to indulge in South African delicacies at the large wooden dining table. End off a spectacular day in the wild with a nightcap at the bar or grilling marshmallows over the fire at the lapa.
