Activities at Phelwana Game Lodge

Bush Walks

Phelwana offers guests two walking trails. We are undergoing a project in which we are labelling trees with name tags. Each tag will explain the name of the tree which guests can cross reference using their own handbook. A Field guide will accompany guests on walks in the morning and evening.

Guests are welcome to bring their own bicycles and cycle around our reserve at their own leisure. As we do not have the Big 5, guests must be aware of the resident buffalos and hippos whilst travelling through the bush. We are custodians of the land and are in their space!


As we have three dams, Phelwana, Hippo and Nyala Dam, guests are welcome to test their hand at fishing. Our dams are host to very large Cat fish and Carp, which provide good fun in the surroundings of the beautiful Bushveld.

Game Drives

Game drives are offered. Please ensure with Reception for drives will be available in the morning and late afternoon. Refreshments and light snacks will be offered to our guests. Please ensure you bring your camera and something warm weather depending.
