Magnificent nature and fascinating landscapes

Experience the South African wilderness with all its beautiful/wonderful variety up close.

Come and join us on unique guided Safari Tours and be our guest on our private and very special place where humans and wildlife live together in harmony.

BALULENI means in one of the local languages “Where the water always flows” or modified by us, “Where the love always flows”, which we have made as our motto of our small, very intimate lodge.

Our Lodge is situated on the shore of the Olifants River, directly on an elephant path.

Far away from the noisy and fast moving world, you can enjoy the silence of nature and listen to the voices of the African bush.

Unhindered, without any fences, the South African wildlife is visiting this natural water source all year around, while you can watch the animals from your private terrace of your Chalet.

Somewhere in the distance you might hear a lion roaring or the rumbles of elephants. Maybe a breeding herd of elephants with their youngsters will walk past your terrace, while the colourful birdlife of South Africa offers you a free concert.

Make Baluleni Safari Lodge as the starting point for your activities – a little paradise inside the “Greater Kruger National Park, which is often referred by guests as “Heaven on Earth”.



We offer different accommodation options to suite your safari needs.

And while you are still enjoying your morning coffee, the monkeys already left the trees where they slept and happily greet the new day.

In the evening you have the opportunity to end the day with the other guests of our lodge with a drink around the campfire in our “Boma” under the stars.

The aim to give visitors a truly unforgettable safari experience by creating a home away from home atmosphere, in a small tucked away bush retreat. We created an authentic bush experience where people and animals live as one.
