Experience Private Luxury in the African Bush

A scant two-and-a-half hours from Johannesburg lies an undiscovered corner of heaven. A private escape set in indigenous bushveld surrounded by rolling hills, where the loudest sounds are the soothing tones of bountiful birds. The hustle and bustle of city life is a million miles away.

A place where your only decisions are to relax by the pool, which mountain bike trail to take, whether to fish or kayak in the sparkling lake, play golf on your own private golf course, when to take a game drive and what to have for sundowners.

A place of refined luxury where you can relax with family and friends, knowing your every wish is catered for.

It’s called Babirwa Golf and Bush Lodge and nothing comes close.
