ABOUT Awelani Lodge

Conveniently located just 12kms from the Kruger Nationa Park’s Pafuri Gate, Awelani Lodge provides the ideal base for those wishing to explore the northern part of Kruger and surrounds.

A range of accommodation is available including self-catering bungalows and chalets, as well as safari tents and an authentic camping option. The tents are not equipped for self-catering but have electricity and flush toilets.

Set in a wooded 1700 hectare conservancy, you’ll get a true taste of the bush at Awelani with various opportunities to walk or bike around, allowing you to discover the vast tree life featuring Baobab, Lobombo Ironwood, Mopani and more. The purpose-built birdhide and waterhole attract a variety of birds making for excellent bird-watching.

Enjoy exploring the area with game drives, cultural activities or picnicking at the Pafuri Picnic Site on the Luvuvhu River. Cave braaing and star-gazing are both popular activities at the lodge. The onsite restaurant provides all meals for those not in self-catering accommodation, with the swimming pool offering a great way to stay cool in the African heat. There is also a pub, perfect for socialising and enjoying a cold one.

Conference & wedding venue available.
