Gqoyeni lodge is situated on an elevated peninsula overlooking the confluence of the Black Mfolozi River and the Gqoyeni Stream in an excellent game viewing location on the Sontuli Loop.
The lounge offers uninterrupted views of the sand banks and reed beds of the river which is a favoured drinking spot. The lodge accommodation consists of four, two bed reed under thatch units, each with a shower and toilet en-suite and these are linked to the lounge and dining area by wooden boardwalks. Visitor’s needs are attended to by a cook and field ranger. The caretaker cook will assist with the preparation of meals and the daily servicing of the accommodation.
The field ranger is available to take visitors on walks, these in the early mornings and late afternoons. The services of both the field ranger and caretaker are included in the tariff.

The water at Gqoyeni Bush Lodge is temporarily not fit for drinking. Please bring your own drinking water.
Gqoyeni Bush Lodge caters for only one group at a time, up to a maximum of eight persons, so for the period of your stay it becomes your exclusive home in the African bush.
Please note that this bush lodge does not have a perimeter fence and animals may be encountered at any time, be aware of this, especially when moving about after dark. Power is from generator for the fans and lighting whilst the fridges and stove use gas. The generator is turned off at approx 22h00. We suggest that you bring a torch for each room. Hyena in the evenings can be intimidating and monkeys scavenging during the day can be a nuisance. Do not feed any of the animals.
Visitors need to bring their own wood or buy wood from the Curio Shop.
