Your Stay

Nyala Safari Lodge offers a simple luxury safari experience on the banks of a seasonal river in the Balule Nature Reserve. Hosts are warm and hospitable, creating a relaxing and memorable safari experience. Because the lodge has only five thatched chalets, you are guaranteed an intimate and personalised safari experience. Ideal for multigenerational groups, romantics and corporate travelers, Nyala has it all covered.

There are plenty of relaxation spaces on site, which include the sun loungers around the pool, the boma area, lounge and bar area. There are also various spots along the wooden viewing decks with seating overlooking the wilderness and waterhole.

Each of the five thatched rondawels offers something different, but all have indoor and outdoor showers, mosquito nets, air conditioning, soft lanterns for ambiance, canvas blinds, and fine linen.
