at Phelwana Game Lodge
(These are included in full board
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
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.
