About us

Tswalu Grove Safari Lodge is located on a small game farm only minutes from Gold Reef City. The lodge offers the fortunate guest an opportunity to return back to nature, to experience the free-roaming game or hike in nature all without travelling the long distances we are so used to if we wish to get out of the rat-race for a weekend. It really offers the best of both worlds, close enough to the city, yet far enough to make you forget all about it.
For the owners, this lodge should mean a return for each and every guest; a return to nature, to once again hear the heartbeat of Africa, to feel her in the grass under your feet, to hear her in the sound of birdcalls. It is a place of rejuvenation, a place to find your soul again, to experience the luxury of time. Owner operated and managed, their slogan reads: “A truly African experience set in thatch and stone located just 15 minutes from JHB CBD”

Experience life on the farm

When guests visit our lodge, we encourage them to interact with farmlife. Whether it be to bottle-feed an orphan, treat any of our hand-reared animals or partake in the daily feeding regime, we love for them to join in. This platform provides the perfect opportunity to teach our guests more about nature. We so often look at the obvious, like the different species of game, that we forget about the insects like dungbeetles, that indicate how healthy the environment is, the birdlife around us and even the snakes! Like man, each of them have a role to play in the sustainability of our natural environment.
