Accommodation

GREENFIRE GAME LODGE ǀ Luxury accommodation in Balule Private Game Reserve

9 deluxe suites, sleeping up to 18 adult guests

Greenfire Game Lodge is a dramatically revamped ecotourism destination located in Balule Private Game Reserve. The 50 000-hectare reserve is one of the unfenced private reserves that fall within the Greater Kruger, which lies adjacent to the iconic Kruger National Park. Game roams freely between the two vast wilderness regions so you’re guaranteed incredible Big 5 wildlife sightings.

The luxury safari lodge is best known for its striking contemporary architectural design, isolated location and magnificent views over the seasonally-dry Mohlabetsi River. No effort has been spared to deliver an exclusive safari experience where the ultra-chic facilities of a modern safari lodge blend seamlessly with its stunning natural surrounds.

The suites lie nestled in a riverine forest, and are carefully positioned on the escarpment so they feel completely private. Floor-to-roof glass-fronted interiors lead out onto private decks with panoramic views of the Balule bushveld. It’s an eco-conscious lodge so there is no air-conditioning but the suites are cleverly designed to keep cool and warm in different seasons.

Children 12 years and older are welcome at Greenfire Game Lodge.
