Errday Meals from Nando's South Africa

Experience five star bush luxury just an hour out of Joburg

Designed to make you feel at one with nature, this bush oasis ticks every single box and then some. We fell in love with Kigelia Game Farm and the best news is it is just an hours drive from Johannesburg. So pack your bags, grab your besties and head into the wild.


Kigelia sleeps 8 adults comfortably, it is the ideal destination for a girls getaway, a bachelorette, an escape with your besties or even a family vacay. Both inspiring and well designed the lodge is exclusively yours throughout your stay. You will have access to the entire lodge, your own kitchen, (that Martha Stewart would approve of) swimming pool, enormous lounge and dining area, and private game drives upon request. Self-catering is the name of the game, so for those who want to hibernate and be extra COVID-19 compliant this truly is the perfect chunk of the South African bush.


The lodge space is tremendous and is anchored into the landscape. It’s visually striking, so you’ll appreciate the way the dwelling is designed, on one side are two bedrooms separated by a walkway to the other final two rooms, all blending in seamlessly with curved manicured pathways, swing deck chairs,remarkable gardens and a beautifully arranged boma.

As nighttime approaches the surrounding bushveld glints as the moon touches it and you soon give yourself permission to let your hair down and relax in total privacy. Marvel at the stunning vistas surrounding you with 180 degree views. Oh and listen out for the hums of the buffalo, who might just pass you by while you sleep.


You will leave this serene space with a new lease on life, appreciating the simple things, being in nature, reunited with your loved ones, hysterical laughter alongside the fireside whilst roasting marshmallows and the purest form of star gazing. Your family and friends will fully benefit from this experience, we guarantee it.


Kigelia Game farm is situated on the border of the Dinokeng wildlife sanctuary and you can book direct through their Airbnb listing
