Ravineside Lodge has much to offer. Remote and private, approximately 3 ½ hours from Johannesburg, nestled in the shadows of Entabeni Rock. You can kick your feet up in comfortable rustic wooden lodges on stilts with thatched roofs, with a picturesque view of miles of bush where wild animals roam free in their natural habitat. Enjoy traditional African cuisine, prepared right in front of you as you sit under the starlit, South African sky. Relax, as the friendly and helpful staff cater to your every need. Or spend the evening with a glass of wine, as you sit on your deck listening to the sounds of cascading water and birds calling in the distance.
Each morning, wake up to adventure! Whether it’s a game drive, a horseback safari, or a helicopter ride, there is so much to do and see. Let the knowledgeable rangers guide you through the majestic mountains, rock formations, beautiful waterfalls, and crystal clear mountain pools that make up the Entabeni private game reserve, and experience thousands of animals, large and small. For those who are really looking for an adrenaline boost, Ravineside Lodge also offers abseiling and quad biking.
When you come back to the lodge in the afternoon, feel free to let the sun warm your skin as you relax by the pool with a cold drink in your hand. As the sun descends, your ranger will escort you to dinner where you can enjoy international cuisine by candlelight at the Serengeti Restaurant, or the more traditional barbeque style that is so loved in South Africa under the Wild Fig overlooking the moonlit plains nearby. Don’t want to dine in the restaurants? Ravineside Lodge has the beautiful Serengeti Plain right outside its front door. On warm days meals may be served in the garden overlooking the breathtaking scenery, allowing you to enjoy the untouched beauty and exotic animals as you dine.
For those seeking to get away for a bit of romance, Ravineside Lodge has you covered. Take a tranquil lake cruise, where you can see hippopotami and other wildlife together. Maybe a guided walk through the bush or a special picnic prepared especially for the both of you. The staff is eager to know how they can help to make your experience at Ravineside Lodge memorable.
Have a big group? Look no further! Each of our lodges has 3 or 4 Luxury en suite bedrooms with an African ethnic theme. A private open-plan lounge and bar area extends to the open sundecks. So your party can socialize together surrounded by the scenic beauty of South Africa as you listen to the rippling sound of water far down in the valley.
So whether you are looking for a romantic getaway, an adventurous family vacation, or a team building event with your coworkers, Ravineside Lodge is ready to accommodate your needs
