WELCOME TO MDLULI SAFARI LODGE
Mdluli Safari Lodge is the story of one man’s vision for the land, and for the Mdluli people. Today this land is significant for many reasons. We invite you to be part of our story – a tale of the wonder and beauty of the Kruger National Park, the authentic charm of Siswati tradition, and a deep-rooted commitment to conservation.
The lodge is located inside the south-western region of the Kruger National Park, a 5 hour drive from Gauteng and accessible via a private road from Numbi Gate – the closest gate from Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport.
The lodge is fully fenced, and monitored 24/7 through an external control centre.
Cool down from the hot African sun in our iconic infinity pool – just meters from the fence. The pool overlooks a watering hole, where we regularly have elephant, zebra and impala – and if you’re lucky, a rare sighting of the herd of sable antelope.
50 Luxury Tents – Welcome to the tranquility of your luxurious tent.
With oversized patios and views into the Park, your elevated tent and private patio is both spacious and indulgent, with all the amenities you’ll need for your stay with us. There is no better place for relaxation in the African bush.
Each of the custom-designed tents have en-suite bathrooms, and can comfortably sleep a family of four. The use of canvas and natural timber materials gives each tent a true safari feel. The interior palette takes inspiration from the tones and textures found in the surrounding natural environment.
The ambience of the tents and main areas is created through a carefully curated fusion of raw timbers and canvas textures with the authentic charm of Siswati tradition. Each area of the lodge is designed to create a feeling of being connected to nature, whether indoors or outdoors.
The deck, restaurant, boma and oversized infinity swimming pool are cleverly positioned through their open architecture and proximity to the lodge’s fence line to allow guests to find their quiet space while a herd of elephant or buffalo amble past to the river that lies adjacent to the fence line.

Muffins, rusks and warm drinks are offered in the restaurant before the early morning game activity.
