A destination of outstanding scenic beauty, an African Eden. Situated in the Waterberg, 2.5 hours from Johannesburg, Kaingo Game Reserve is the malaria-free, safari holiday you’ve been searching for.

Reminiscent of a traditional African safari camp, Kaingo Elephant Lodge offers the luxurious safari accommodation experience. Built from natural stone with thatch roofs, the luxury game lodge has an 'olde worlde-Africa' atmosphere while being completely contemporary. All comforts are catered for in the plush suites and throughout this carefully appointed luxury safari lodge, with surrounding nature inspired decor accent colors. Just 28 guests can be accommodated at Elephant Lodge, and the focus is on personal attention, superb service and complete comfort.

The 12 suites are set in a large natural garden that blends into the surrounding bush veld savanna landscape. The garden paths connect the suites to each other and the main lodge area. Elephant Lodge is set among tall shady trees where you can enjoy a botanical experience of trees, Cycads and natural plants. The large pond and surrounding grazing attracts a wide selection of birds and antelope.
Each en-suite room has an African wildlife theme and can accommodate two people, in either a double or twin beds dressed in white linen and African throws. There’s air conditioning for summer and heated under-blankets to keep the cold at bay on winter nights.

Everything and more than you’d expect in a luxury safari lodge is here - including lock-up safe. Earthy colors, leather and dark wood finishes give the suites an understated elegance. For families there are side by side inter-leading en-suite rooms for a memorable holiday.

The Lodge is situated in the center of the reserve and is a true oasis surrounded by bush and mountains. Our Gem of the Bushveld is an ideal retreat for the more refined traveler who prefers both privacy and exclusivity.

Kaingo is home to over 50 different mammals, including Lion, Elephant, Buffalo and Leopard as part of the Big Five. It is home to several endangered and rare species too, such as Tessebe, Brown hyena, Pangolin, Honey badger and Sable. Several nocturnal species can best be seen at night including Aardvark, Serval, Bush baby and African wild cat.
