Crimson Bush Lodge is a 4* quality rated Lodge situated in the malaria free Dinokeng Game Reserve that hosts the Big 5. Elephant, Rhino, Buffalo, Lion and Leopard

It is a very private luxurious air-conditioned lodge, catering for couples and families who wish to break away from the hustle and bustle of work and life in the city to enjoy the ambiance of nature in the tranquil bushveld of Dinokeng Game Reserve a mere 40 kilometers from the city of Pretoria.

This exquisite lodge offers self-catering and B&B on request.

Crimson Bush Lodge comprises of two exquisitely decorated bedrooms offering two lavish and spacious en-suite bathrooms which includes a shower with a view of the bushveld, HD DSTV in each room and to top it all, languish in your own private spa-bath as you welcome the sunset, iced champagne in hand, candles winking as the shy stars appear, the soft whisper of the gentle breeze offering you the serenity of moonlight playing with the bubbly, wistful water.

Relax in the lovely decorated living and dining room with dining table seating 8 people,  and for the master chef a fully equipped kitchen with top of the range utensils, cutlery and crockery.

The kitchen, scullery and laundry is equipped with 2 fridges, microwave oven, dishwasher and for those rare moments you need to take matters in your own hands you will find a washing machine, tumble dryer, ironing board and iron at your disposal to save the day.

Life sometimes intrudes and may offer a rare moment when you miss reality, just tune into the HD DSTV for those late night movies, and catch up on current news and sports.

On a hot summer’s day, bask in the sparkling swimming pool or just lay next to the pool with your favorite book, soaking in the African sun, letting your body mirror the golden sun-kiss.

Book one of the late afternoon guided game tours through the park. The sun-set drive offers a view of the large variety of game, even see a few of the Big 5 and come back and settle around the open air camp-fire, hear the stories of the bush and the myths of Africa, live the mysteries of each other. Create happy memories with dancing flames of the fire, twinkling stars, playful moon in the vast African sky, bearing witness to your secrets and confessions in the bushveld or make use of the built-in braai on the covered veranda.

Relax on the large covered veranda with your favorite beverage and breathe deeply of the clean bushveld air as you enjoy the abundant birds calling, flying, falling, and chirping on your watch

At Crimson Bush Lodge you can experience the African bush and find peace, love and yourself!

This is Africa at its finest….

We had a lovely time at The Crimson Bush Lodge! The lodge deserves the 4 star rating (or better). We were there for a relaxing family couple of days but were spoiled by game visiting the waterhole just outside the fence. Was quite something to interrupt our card games by visiting Elephants, kudu, wilde beest and other game.

“I found this little gem while searching for a stopover retreat to finish off our Kruger National Park holiday before returning to Cape” – Angelique & Darius Joubert

I found this little gem while searching for a stopover retreat to finish off our Kruger National Park holiday before returning to Cape Town. It was simply an amazing experience from the first engagement to make our booking till we said our goodbyes. Crimson Bush Lodge is located within the Dinokeng Reserve just over 30 minutes north of Pretoria on the N1 Highway and 1 hour from OR Tambo International Airport
