Lindani lodges

This magnificent private game farm, spanning 3000 hectares in the heart of the mountain bushveld of the Waterberg, houses nine venues in varied habitats.  Each of these accommodation options has a unique character, based on its setting, special features and capacity, but all are comfortable, well-equipped and surrounded by nature.  What makes Lindani unique though, is complete privacy and the freedom to determine how you spend your day.

Open savannah bushveld gives way to towering sandstone cliffs, mountains with deep kloofs and perennial streams.  The farm is a diverse piece of bushveld, characterized by the huge variety of trees tucked into the sourveld koppies and ravines and the large open plains brimming with wildlife like zebra, giraffe and eland, as well as the endless vistas of the Waterberg mountain range stretching out ahead.

You can hike, bike or drive through the farm, amongst game including giraffe, kudu, waterbuck, eland, zebra, wildebeest, red hartebeest and over 200 bushveld birds.  Take a fascinating, meandering Tree Walk or order a gourmet picnic to be delivered to one of the private, scenic picnic-sites.  Passion and love for what they do that is infused into every element of what the team offers at Lindani Lodges.

Lindani is only a few hours from Johannesburg, (275 km from OR Tambo International airport) and is perfect for families who want a safe, private, beautiful getaway with plenty to do for the whole family, but the best thing about Lindani is that it is very affordable.  This makes Lindani a very popular option with those wanting to escape the city, so book early for your next bush-breakaway.

Activities

Guided Mountain biking, Hiking, Game viewing, Birding, Tree Walk, Rock art visits.
Rates vary between R300 and R500 according to activity.

The network of hiking and mountain bike trails allow you to get up close to the 230 bird species, impressive bushveld trees and veld flowers, while game drives are offered on an open landrover in the early mornings and evenings.  A dip in your own private swimming pool is welcome after a morning of tackling the challenging network of Mountain Bike routes or one of the numerous Green Flag hiking trails. If you prefer, you can relax on the stoep with a book or play board-games with your friends. At the end of the day, enjoy a braai under the starry skies with the fiery-necked night-jars competing with the sunset celebrations of the francolins. 

Accommodation

The unique lodges range in accommodation housing between four and eighteen people in comfortable, well-equipped, private houses each with its own swimming pool.  Motseng, the biggest venue sleeping , is cradled in the embrace of low mountains bordering on a wetland area around the Melkrivier River.  This is a perfect space for families or a large group of friends with its lovely, private en-suite rooms around generous communal areas with a games room.  Warthogs wander past and Cape Glossy Starlings call from the rocky amphitheatre behind the house, as you laze in the pool or on the deep verandahs.  You can get up close and personal to zebra and wildebeest on the Topsy Turvey Mountain Bike Trail or at the Flat Rocks Picnic Site.

The pristine environment; private, comfortable accommodation and activities are fabulous but what really differentiates Lindani is its heart. Sam and Peg Van Coller started the lodge in May 1998, renovating the first farmhouse, and have a long history with the dynamic, passionate team driving Lindani.  Their energy and love for what they do is evident in every detail, from the helpful Martha Moatshe in reception to the gourmet picnic hamper prepared by Dikeledi Moshidi and Johanna Maema in the Farm Kitchen, to every ounce of knowledge about the bushveld trees and the San rock art that experienced guide, Solly Nkhumane shared with us.  Passion and love for what they do that is infused into every element of what the team offers at Lindani Lodges.
