If it’s wildlife you’re seeking, that’s exactly what you’ll find here at Kwa Maritane Bush Lodge. Located deep in the heart of the 55,000 hectare, malaria-free Pilanesberg National Park, Kwa Maritane Bush Lodge is the perfect base from which to enjoy the rich diversity of indigenous flora and fauna of Africa – including the Big Five. Our highly experienced field guides will drive you into the Park in the cool air of the early morning or late afternoon to evening when the animals are out and about, to ensure that you won’t be disappointed. Learn about the stunning diversity of fauna and flora, including the Big Five and over 360 bird species. You can also relax in the game viewing hide, connected to the lodge by a 150m tunnel, and enjoy a front row seat as the animals drink at the waterhole.
Rejuvenate your mind, body and soul in our magnificent Spa. Indulge yourself with treatments such as Thabayadiotso, our signature treatment, or be pampered with a pedicure while watching the game feeding on the plains in front of the Spa. Whether it is a full body massage, in which the masseur uses Mountain Aloe Oil, or a soothing, deep cleansing facial using warm volcanic milk, the professional therapists will simply spoil you. There are four treatment rooms, including one suite suitable for couples looking to share the experience. There is also a manicure and pedicure lounge, a rasul chamber, relaxation area and hydro pool
