Main Lodge

Makalali Main Lodge is a newly built 5 star lodge, It’s central area is strikingly designed with rustic structures that effortlessly redirect the outside elements indoors. It also features a chic library; a quiet space to reflect or retreat with a book.

Guests can enjoy an array of African cuisine in the main dining area, with its characteristic dual aspect fireplace that connects the bar lounge and dining area; perfect for keeping the night chill at bay and enjoying an intimate dinner. The outside area is distinctively designed around the natural surrounds with a spacious deck area built around indigenous trees, overlooking a watering hole.

Makalali is the ideal place to see wildlife interact and take in the scenery. Equally spectacular is the large crystal blue rim flow pool. Its comfy chairs and sun-loungers create an inviting ambience, paired with a signature Makalali drink, it concludes the day beautifully.

Enjoy an evening under the Africa night sky from the elegantly designed boma area and listen to the wildlife come alive.
