Greenfire Game Lodge  

Situated in the Balule Nature Reserve - Greater Kruger National Park

Situated in the 35 000 hectare privately owned Balule Nature Reserve adjacent and unfenced to the Kruger National Park, the Greenfire Game Lodge is isolated and intensely close to the magic of Africa.

A small luxury Game Lodge where no effort is spared and the experience is personal and relaxed.

The diversity of vegetation within the reserve ensures that good game sightings are guaranteed, and besides the “Big 5” we are especially proud of the abundant bird life and smaller mammals attracted by the riverine forest and open plains. Our qualified staff will explain the intricacies of the bush in detail.

Your Hosts

Adrian and Kim are your hosts and assisted by competant and friendly staff to asssist them. All of the staff at this Balule lodge are highly trained and qualified and will ensure that you get the maximum from your experience.

If you really wish to spend your time on an African safari with a small international group, and you relish the thought of an environmentally educational and adventurous experience where 'roughing it and loving it' are the order of the day, then this adventure lodge is your only choice.

Game Viewing

Guests can enjoy early morning game drives in the Balule Game Reserve, or the Kruger National park, during which they may encounter animals such as Impala, or Buffalo, and where there are Buffalo, predators such as Lion are not far away. You may even be lucky enough to see a hunt in progress.
