Emdoneni Lodge is situated on a small game farm, with sand forest vegetation. Nature lovers can enjoy the abundant bird life on the premises or walk with wildlife, which include zebra, wildebeest, impala, nyala, red- and grey duiker.
Guests can enjoy a balance of sophistication and comfort, air-conditioned, intimate and comfortable en-suite rooms allow you to escape the heat of the day. Join us in the evenings for true SA cuisine at the buffet restaurant or in the Boma, which adds a different atmosphere as you eat under African night sky. End of your evening with a nightcap in our cosy bar or a chat in front of the fireplace.
Emdoneni provides a central, comfortable and affordable base from which to explore the culture, great lakes, game parks or other adventures of Zululand, the options are endless…
Join our experienced guides for an up-close-and personal tour to our famous Cat Project to learn more about South Africa’s endangered wild cat species. Come and be mesmerised by the beauty of the caracal; enchanted by the playful serval; astonished by the speed and agility of the cheetah; and delighted by the African Wildcat.
Emdoneni Lodge actively welcomes children of all ages.
Children are allocated to a specific ranger who enjoys interacting with younger guests. Drives and activities are tailored to suit children’s interests and attention span. Game drives and walks are designed to ensure that the kid’s safety is taken into account and that they experience activities they might not normally enjoy in the city. Baby sitters and child minders are available (additional cost). We try not to use modern technology in our activities offered but rather to teach children to love nature and what it has to offer!
We pride ourselves in offering superior service to our guests and the sharing of local knowledge, which enables guests to explore the most of Zululand. Emdoneni is a nature lover’s paradise and offers the visitor a chance to experience Zululand at its’ best… an experience to remember…
From all of us at Emdoneni Lodge – Salani Kahle!
