iNsingizi Lodge and Spa

Bring the african bushveld to your room with iNsingizi's African-themed chalets...

Inspired by nature, iNsingizi’s African-themed chalets brings nature literally to the doorstep of your room, providing fully-catered accommodation.

Boasting nine beautifully appointed en-suite chalets that can sleep a total of 32 guests.

Set in spectacular surroundings, iNsingizi’s three tailored accommodation options make it the ultimate destination for business conferences, wedding guests, spa retreats, weekday getaways, or weekend escapes.

From the plush comfort of your private retreat, embrace the tranquillity of iNsingizi’s setting as you watch the sunset sink behind the valley’s krantzes and listen to the soothing sounds of nature.

These free-standing suites either nestle in the surrounding bush or overlook the verdant vegetation of the valley, dam and krantzes below, enabling guests to observe the property’s prolific bird and wildlife from the privacy of their own personal viewing deck.

Rest assured when your stay with us is over, you’ll head home refreshed, recharged, and revived.

Ceiling fans or air-conditioners (depending on your choice of chalet) for balmy summer evenings, and electric heating or electric blankets for chilly winter nights, complete the picture to ensure a homely stay.

We look forward to welcoming you at iNsingizi!
