THE AFRICAN VILLAGE HOTEL
Dramatically situated on a hilltop, this thatched luxury lodge offers a true African experience. Luxury en-suite rooms are clustered around a swimming pool and lapa area with breathtaking panoramic views of the surrounding hills and far off horizons.
This lodge has the feel of a majestic tribal kraal of a more primitive long forgotten Africa. Enjoy traditional country hospitality and exquisite buffet meals overlooking the mighty Vaal River. Each sunset gives the phrase “sipping a sundowner" new meaning and with the Fish Eagle’s last cry, you would not want to be any place else.
