SANParks Roodewal Bush Lodge in the world-renowned Kruger National Park is a private self-catering bush lodge rented out exclusively to 1 group of 18 guests at a time. Roodewal Bush Lodge is a secluded lodge situated 44 km north of Satara, on the banks of the Timbavati River.
Riverine plant life, like Natal mahogany and jackalberry trees, create a picturesque view from the braai area, only to be crowned by the brightness of the stars at night. The unique quality of this camp is due to the extreme privacy of each individual sleeping unit, making it ideal for celebration parties, corporate think-tanks and small intimate wedding parties. Not only is the whole camp occupied by the party making the booking, but the units are spaced to offer privacy to each guest or family occupying that unit. Another special feature is the private viewing deck, built on stilts and overlooking the Timbavati River.
Accommodation is offered in one 6-bedded cottage and three 4-bedded cottages. The first family cottage contains 2 bedrooms, each with an en suite, 1 with a bath and the other with a shower. The other 3 bungalows each contain 3 single beds, a loft with 2 mattresses, a shower en suite, and a small fridge. Solar panels provide power for lights and fans only. There are no electrical plug points available for appliances in cottages.
The living area comprises a fully equipped kitchen, dining room, bar, lounge, and a braai and viewing deck. The kitchen is equipped with a gas stove and oven, a fridge-freezer, and cutlery and crockery. There is no electricity, and a generator is used for lights at night. Gas braai facilities and wood braai facilities are provided.
Where nearly 2 million hectares of unrivaled diversity of life forms fuses with historical and archaeological sights, this is real Africa.The world-renowned Kruger National Park offers a wildlife experience that ranks with the best in Africa.
This enormous and magnificent park is one of the most popular public-entry game parks in the world. Its density of permanent game is unrivalled with hundreds of different species; 507 birds, 336 trees, 147 mammals, 114 reptiles, 49 fish and 34 amphibians.
Few visitors leave South Africa without visiting the Kruger National Park or one of the private reserves along its borders but it is also frequented by locals in their own vehicles, as you can drive yourself around and stay overnight in one of the many public restcamps. There are also a few exclusive private lodges that have been granted concessions within the Kruger National Park.
The far north of the park is the wildest and most difficult area to access and because of this, it has alluring qualities for the real adventurer.
With greater ecological co-operation across African borders, several countries bordering South Africa have agreed to take down some fences, and those between Kruger and Mozambique’s Limpopo National Park and Zimbabwe’s Gonarezhou, have been demolished to create the Greater Limpopo Transfrontier Park. This unique political innovation is creating a colossal wilderness area.
