The luxury bush lodge is the perfect, quiet escape for anyone in search of private solitude while visiting Africa. Hidden deep in the Balule Game Reserve, away from the prying eyes and constant chatter of the nearby, often overcrowded Kruger, IsiLimela is a bush lodge oasis, and our guests will find that our lodge is a haven of peace and quiet.

Our lodge embodies rustic Africa, but with all of the modern amenities to ensure that you enjoy pure comfort and relaxation while staying with us. For those in search of a safari holiday, they will find that our lodge offers a number of opportunities to safely explore the reserve and spot all of the various wild animals living in their natural habitats.

When it comes to a relaxing holiday, it doesn’t get much better than booking a stay at a luxury bush lodge in South Africa.

While staying at IsiLimela, you can look forward to this:

Luxury Accommodation

In every sense of the word, your stay with us is one highlighted by the fact that we offer truly luxurious accommodation and superb hospitality in the heart of the African bush. After your time on safari, you can retreat to the sanctuary that is your bedroom, and laze about on your bed, read a book by the pool or take a walk around the lodge, occasionally spotting animals and their foot prints as you walk.

The chalet accommodation is kitted out with air conditioning (a necessity in our part of the world), 4-poster beds, and a fire place (ideal for those cooler winter nights). Those who prefer to stay in our luxury safari tent can look forward to an authentic African camping experience but with the added benefit of air-conditioning, and an en-suit bathroom.


Our accommodation also includes an outdoor shower for those adventurous guests who want to experience the thrill of showering outside beneath the African skies.

Game Drives and Bush Walks

No holiday in the African bush would be complete if you didn’t have the opportunity to go on a safari game drive or a bush walk. Both of these exciting activities are available to our guests and these trips are perfect for those who are not keen on driving themselves. In the company of an expert guide, guests can expect to learn a lot about the animals and plants that they come across, while also enjoying the stories their guides share.

Wildlife Interactions

Although these activities are not on offer at the lodge, we can arrange for you to enjoy this kind of experience at the nearby Moholoholo rehabilitation centre or at the Jabulani Elephant Interaction centre. You can also pay a visit to Jessica the Hippo and feed her a bottle of her favourite beverage.
