Experience Nature Like Never Before
Top Weekend Getaway Idea: A Magical Bushveld Picnic
Are you aching for a relaxing or invigorating adventure? While life is fun, we so easily get caught up in the same routine – not only during the workweek but also in our off time. We visit the same places or people each weekend and do the same activities. And even though these can be enjoyable, there are times when you need to shake things up a bit. So, where do you start? How do you up the ante on your adventures? Hear us out: what about taking a walk on the wild side and booking an unforgettable bushveld picnic?
Escape your regular routine and the doldrums of everyday life with a refreshing getaway that treats all your senses. Nestled at the foot of the Waterberg in the bushveld region of the Limpopo province, and only 200 kilometres from Johannesburg, Zwahili Private Game Lodge & Spa is the oasis you’ve been looking for. And, while we pack a fabulous picnic, we also have so much more on offer for our guests.
Before we get ahead of ourselves, let’s dig a bit deeper into our decadent bushveld picnic basket. When staying at Zwahili Private Game Lodge & Spa, guests have the option to book a stylish bushveld picnic excursion that allows them to enjoy a lovely light meal consisting of roast chicken, layered garden salad, yoghurt with fruit, freshly baked cornbread and flavoured, ice-cold mineral water in a setting unlike any other.
Our experienced guide will transport you to a picnic spot of your choice – enjoy your magical meal in the shade of a majestic Marula tree close to the lodge or venture into the bushveld to enjoy breathtaking views of the plains and nearby watering hole.
Do as Much – Or as Little – As You Want
In addition to hosting the quintessential bushveld picnic, we also offer a host of other activities and experiences for our guests. In fact, you might want to consider extending your weekend getaway with a couple of days to fully lose yourself in a world of luxurious wonders.
Explore the natural landscape with thrilling game drives or get closer to nature by joining one of our exhilarating guided bush walks. The surroundings boast an abundance of stunning wildlife, spectacular views and even ancient cave paintings.
Stay in Style
Back at the lodge, guests will find everything necessary for an absolutely unforgettable stay. The rooms are lush, gorgeous and exceptionally comfortable. Each room features its own private viewing deck, and the Executive and Presidential suites even boast their own pools.
Dine Like Royalty
Aside from our popular bushveld picnic, we also offer a full culinary safari experience. The divine cuisine available at our restaurant tastes as incredible as it looks. Our Head Chef will take you on a taste journey with a blend of flavours inspired by Africa meeting classic Western culinary tradition.
Weather permits, we also serve Boma dinners under the beautiful African night sky. See the stars in all their glory, while basking in the warm glow of a campfire, while feasting on an array of delicacies that will satisfy the most discerning palate.
Alternatively, guests can also arrange with us in advance to have a private, romantic candle-lit dinner for two set up on the deck of their suite.
Treat the Body, Mind and Soul
Turn your weekend away into the ultimate experience of relaxation and rejuvenation by booking a treatment (or few) at our world-class African spa. Enjoy a soul-surrendering full body massage, a revitalising head massage, a sensory hot stone treatment, or pampering manicures and pedicures.
If you’re looking for the ultimate weekend getaway, book your bushveld picnic with Zwahili Private Game Lodge & Spa, and get ready to be swept away on a luxury safari adventure.
