The central guest facilities at this 5 star lodge includes rim flow swimming pool, gourmet restaurant, casual lounge and bar, a spacious entertainment deck with outdoor cocktail bar, cigar lounge, Amani Spa and conference facility.

The Lodge acts as a central gathering spot and social environment for guests, as well as the point from which all activities depart and return. Guests can enjoy two guided game drives daily, which are conducted in the Pilanesberg Game Reserve’s Wilderness Area during the morning and evening in an open 10-seater game viewing vehicle. These outings take three to four hours, with a sundowners stop at sunset, and a coffee stop in the morning.
