The Hide

Our bird hide is an escorted walk, or short drive from the homestead and overlooks the water hole which is a magnet for the local birds. This allows guests a quiet moment to get close to over 260 species of birds on Makongo Hills. Allowing the viewing of secretive species and providing bird photography opportunities.  

The Pool Deck

Relax after your morning drive on our pool deck with views into the valley; enjoy an early morning coffee break; a refreshing plunge into the pool in the warmth of the day; or cocktails in the evening watching the sun set.

The Lapa

The braai is an essential South African experience that is best enjoyed in our outdoor Lapa.

Makongo Hills staff will grill your meat on an open fire while you enjoy drinks and the sights and sounds of the bush. This makes for an unforgettable evening.

The Homestead

Flowing directly onto the main lawn our lounge is a great centralised gathering space.

Share in the thrill of a herd of wildebeest having a midday rest around the pool deck; or warthog on their knees grazing the lawn; or visits from Zebra and their foals. A daily show for you to view from the Lodge.

The Dining area has a permanent tea/coffee station and fresh water cooler. Also used as an alternate dining area for those rare days of inclement weather

All Rooms have Wi-Fi.
