Spectacular lodge luxury
Pel’s Post is a small, private retreat accommodating eight people on the bluff of a hill with spectacular views over the Luvuvhu floodplain. Do as much (or little) as you like at the fully equipped lodge before exploring the glorious, remote surroundings.
A family or group safari is all about having a comfortable base with excellent facilities to spend time together. A lovely shared central space with private pool and bar brings visitors together from breakfast to evening drinks with a view.
Rooms with a view
Each of the four spacious open-plan suites exudes luxury and clever design. The retractable remote-controlled walls reveal a private open terrace with 180 degree views to enjoy from the bath, a double daybed or outside shower.
Perfect for group and family safaris, Pel’s Post provides a private Guide and vehicle so that you can determine the day’s rhythm. Have a picnic overlooking the Lanner Gorge, explore on foot, have sundowners at the confluence of three countries – the choice is yours.
The Lodge allows you to unplug from modern life. The striking architecture is environmentally friendly and off the grid. The only noise is the bush. Relax and enjoy the facilities whilst your private chef conjures up delicious meals served in front of the amazing view.
Explore Makuleke from the back of an open game-viewing vehicle, on foot, or both combined. Expansive floodplains are surrounded by riparian bush studded with ancient baobab groves. Shady glades with springs offer respite from the heat, whilst lala palms erupt along the seeplines at the river margins. Your guide is at your disposal.
Makuleke is home to the Big Five, with particular concentrations of elephant and buffalo in great herds during the dry season (April to November) when they congregate around the two perennial rivers. The carnivorous hunters follow in numbers.
Best for birding
With 350 recorded bird species locally, Pel’s is a birder’s paradise. The sub-tropical wilderness here attracts less-common species not often found elsewhere in the Kruger, notably the Pel’s Fishing Owl after which the lodge is named.
