Get regular updates from iKhaya LamaDube Lodge


This special lodge is situated in the heart of the Dinokeng Game Reserve, only an hours drive from Johannesburg International Airport, with the African bushveld on your doorstep. Each unit has a private bushveld boma where couples can have their own bonfire at night in privacy after viewing the spectacular sunset. The evenings hold a sense of anticipation as nocturnal species begin their activities.



6 delightful, private and fully equipped thatched self catering units. Great for partners to take a real break in their own private, romantic setting.


Boma: Enjoy a bonfire in your own private Boma under the African sky, and let the call of the jackal entertain you.


Laze around the outdoor pool or just cool off from the hot African sun.





The guided Game-drives at iKhaya LamaDube Lodge are for many visitors the highlight of their stay.


Enjoy your time viewing game in their natural environment and have a coffee- or sundowner stop along the way.









We are so privileged to have a Martial Eagle breeding site in Dinokeng Game Reserve. It seems this beautiful raptor is preparing for the breeding season.


According to an Ornithologist, this might be the only active breeding site in Gauteng.








Wonderful stay, exceptional quality of service, staff and management went out of their way to make sure everyone's stay and bush experience was one for the books.




Tienie en Gerd.  Duisend dankies vir 'n Wonderlike naweek! Ons het so Welkom gevoel en Spesiaal.  Ons ervaring was uit die Boeke!

Mag jul net meer sukses en Voorspoed

Adelene en Johan



Baie dankie aan iKhaya lamaDube Game Lodge! Ons het 'n fantastiese Valentine beleef! Dankie vir al dit moeite wat vir elke gas gedoen is, ons het dit baie waardeer. Dit was regte baie spesiaal!




If you want to escape the fast paced city life and truly want to enjoy the peace and quiet the bush has to offer I will highly recommend iKhaya LamaDube Game Lodge. For those who want a romantic weekend away, enjoy some privacy and would like to connect with a loved one, iKhaya LamaDube Game Lodge will not disappoint. Since iKhaya is located in the heart of the Dinokeng nature reserve you are awakened by bird song in the early morning and at night one can stare at the dancing flames of your bonfire (in your own private boma) while listening to the nightjars and jackal in the background. Or you might just be so lucky to get a visit from the resident monitor lizard right at your feet. The rondavel is highly recommended as it is tucked away, between trees, away from the other accommodation for some privacy. The rondavel is tastefully decorated, clean, comfortable with all the necessary amenities. An absolute bonus is the rustic shower. Once you roll up the canvas you can enjoy a truly bush shower experience. When we arrived we were treated like African royalty (staff were dressed in ethnic African clothes) and we received a tantalizing welcoming drink and hot towel. The friendly staff really went an extra mile to make our stay as comfortable and romantic as possible. Without arranging anything beforehand the rondavel was decorated with a romantic theme in mind, rose petals on the bed, fresh flowers in the room etc. On Saturday afternoon a romantic table was set for us at our private boma area. I must commend the staff and the hosts (Tienie and Gerd) for their kindness and friendliness. We have been traveling all over the country and have stayed at a couple of self-catering accommodation lodges and must say, we rate iKhaya LamaDube Game Lodge in our best top 5 overall. Gerd and Tienie were so nice they took some of the guests on a late afternoon game drive, unfortunately it started to rain and we got soaking wet, but what absolute fun it was ! So, if you are planning a romantic/quiet weekend away close to Johannesburg, which will not cost you an arm or a leg, iKhaya LamaDube Game Lodge is definitely worth a visit !

One can never go wrong with this place.

The friendly staff makes you feel at home.

A place to keep coming back over and over again.

Lovely place.




We spent a wonderful weekend in the Safari Tent. The Game Lodge is located in a quieter part of Dinokeng, so the evenings are filled only with the sound of owls, jackals and hyenas. The accommodation was very comfortable and we were made to feel like royalty, with a welcoming drink and hot towel on arrival, and a table in the private boma decorated for a romantic night by the fireplace. The Safari Tent gives the sense of being one with nature, while still having the benefits of a well-equipped kitchen, a comfortable bed and all other modern amenities. Our host, Gerd, went beyond the call of duty when our bakkie wouldn't start. Definitely worth a visit!




Baie netjiese akkommodasie. Ongelooflik stil en rustig. Staf is baie vriendelik en behulpsaam. Waarde vir geld.




It was a great experience! Thank you so much for the hospitality!




Our stay at Ikhaya was excellent! Stunning accommodation, friendly staff, flexible arrangements to meet our needs. The game drive was the best! Tracking down the lions and watching a "kill" was beyond what we expected to see. Thanks to Tienie who shared her passion for the "veld" and animals. At Ikhaya the game drive is highly recommended. It's an experience during which we could appreciate "koffie with a skop", the beauty of nature and the awesome animals of Dinokeng.




We loved our time at iKhaya LamaDube and will definitely be back. It was one of the most relaxing getaways we have had and the staff and owners were so accommodating and made our stay all the more pleasant. Thank you.




We had a wonderful stay at iKhaya lamaDube. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The highlight of our stay was a game drive with Philip. He is such an asset the the establishment and puts guests first. We will return!




What an awesome place, we loved our stay! Next time we will stay longer.




We had a great stay at the lodge. The staff were friendly and the accommodation brilliant.




Lovely accommodation and destination.




Definitely will recommend iKhaya LamaDube to anyone needing a break from the city's hustle and bustle.




Excellent service. Very clean and neat rondavel. Awesome experience of lion-kill. Will definitely visit again.




Baie dankie Tienie vir 'n wonderlike naweek wegbreek.

Vanaf 'n baie netjiese stylvolle verwelkomende kamer tot die diens en die rustigheid was als wat 'n mens voor kon vra.

Diens fantasties.  Kamer altyd vinnig weer skoon gemaak as ons uit was. Niks het kort gekom nie.

En die kersie op die koek toe ons uitboek en die leeus wag vir ons by die hek.

Dankie Tienie julle sien ons defenitief weer





We enjoyed our stay so much, if you want that quiet and peaceful environment this is a great place to visit, nothing beats the undisturbed bushveld with game roaming freely and having a great view of the waterhole that is visited by lots of game including: lions, wildebeest & elephants. The staff is friendly and the hosts are so kind & giving. Thanks Tienie & Gerd for a great stay. We had an unforgettable stay.




Thank you for a great experience, perfect  service and a wonderful stay! I will recommend you to anyone. I will definitely use your services in the future!!




Many thanks to Gerd and Tienie for a relaxed and even so exciting weekend and your hospitality during my stay! I definitely will come back again




Thanks Ikhaya and team for a wonderful stay. Small things such as hot towels and welcoming drink, chocolates and romantic table setting in our boma, subtle touches to make it special. We saw lots of animals from our deck and Sundays game drive an highlight with lioness sighting. We will definitely see you again.




We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the lodge. Our rooms had everything we needed and the private boma was our absolute favourite part. Hearing the lions roaring so close to the establishment while we were relaxing by the fire was an absolute highlight. We will most definitely be back!




Ons, ek en Gilbert het die rustigheid net buite die stad terdeë geniet.  Geen geraas en die bonus was al die wild wat net buite die hek in die gras gewei het terwyl jy jou eerste koppie koffie op die stoep geniet.

Tienie en haar man Gerd het vir ons die aand by ons eie boma kom hallo sê wat ons sommer tuis laat voel het.  Dankie vir 'n wonderlike 2 nagte van wegbreek ek kan iKhaya met hulle vriendelike personeel voorwaar aanbeveel.





Our stay at iKhaya LamaDube was so lovely, we are coming back in August and bringing our family with! What a lovely little slice of heaven so close to the city. We will definitely keep coming back!




I enjoyed it very much.  A lovely place.  Peace full. Game drive relaxed and enjoyable. Awesome, Awesome and Awesome....Can't wait to come again!!!!!

Elona and Charl



Excellent stay. Gerd and Tienie walks the extra 100 miles for you. I lost my purse on a game drive of about 6 hours. without any hesitation they went back looking for it although not successful the same day, they came back with it on the next days game drive. Thanks again you special people.

Kind regards

Robbie and Alta



Great weekend away, our cabin was clean and very nice. I don't have any complaints, and all of our needs were met. We were very happy with the service. Will go again.




Dear Tienie and Gerd,

I would like to start off by thanking you for providing myself and Karla with a small discount on our accommodation, which meant that we were able to afford the little getaway within our budget. I cannot tell you how much this has meant to us both.

As a whole, our stay with you was truly amazing. Right from the moment we first walked into the office. Your staff were incredibly friendly and welcoming. We felt right at home from the first minute. Our cabin was also beautifully romantic and perfect for any couple's weekend away. I will definitely recommend your lodge to any of my friends and colleagues.

I wish you all the success in the world. Indeed, you have all the makings of a great establishment.

Kind regards,

Mohammed and Karla



Thank you very much for the opportunity to stay at the lodge. The welcoming was refreshing and unexpected. The staff was exceptional and we enjoyed every moment we were there. We rested well and enjoyed the game drive. We will see you soon again.




Thank you Tiene and Gerd for your hospitality. We really enjoyed ourselves. We enjoyed especially the animals that we could see along the fence. It really was a joyful experience.

Stephina & George




Dear Tienie and Gerd,

thank you once again for a wonderful stay at your lodge. We found everything superb as usual.

Keep well,

Albert and Elmarie



Great stay, thanks to Tienie and Gerd. Impressed by the room  welcome touches and Boma table preparation on the first night, A nice feature. The game drives were really worthwhile with good commentary by Tienie,

Will definitely return again for a peaceful weekend.




We really enjoyed our stay,The hospitality was amazing. We enjoyed game drive. Being so close to nature was refreshing for city people like us. It was a great vacation and we'll definitely come back again.




Thank you Tienie and Gerd for the great experience.  The game drives with Tienie - but also with Phillip- are amazing. Perfectly prepared with delicious food and bush cappuccino. You are very passionate with the animals. The cottages are so nicely decorated. Its a warm and welcome feeling to be in your lovely lodge.




Lovely room with everything needed to make this a peaceful and relaxing stay. Lovely staff. Thanks for a much needed breakaway




Wonderful experience in stunning location! Comfortable accommodation and friendly hospitality, cannot thank you enough for making my first visit to South Africa so enjoyable!

Hope to come back soon!




My partner and i spent three nights at iKhaya and had a fabulous time . The lodge provided us space to relax and unwind in fantastic surroundings. The accommodation was superb, detailed and attentive yet not overly fussy . We loved being able to look after ourselves .

We where taken by our host on two game drives which where exceptional , the bush was beautiful and we where fascinated with everything , from the fungi to the variations of grass, never mind the animals we saw .

This is an alternative lodge for like minded independant adults, who can handle themselves . A two hour drive from Gauteng  "put your big boy pants on" and make it a must stop in South Africa. Fabulous !




We had such a relaxing and amazing weekend!  The staff were very friendly and professional and they go out of their way to ensure that everything is in order.  This is the best getaway from the hustle and bustle of the city as well as the children.  An amazing place to recharge!  We'll definitely go back again.




This was really the best weekend away I have ever had. Tienie, her husband and her staff spoilt us rotten. The venue was absolutely gorgeous, the bed was super comfy, the kitchen had everything in it that we needed, and everything worked. The staff was extremely helpful and super friendly. Please thank Phillip and Ntombe (not sure of her name) from me for providing so much care to us. The game drives were a winner of note and we will definitely be back and will recommend you to anyone (already have actually)we know. Thank you again for a very special weekend. Once your new chalet is finished, I am definitely going to save up for a weekend in there!




We had a wonderful stay!

The staff were all friendly and did not hesitate to assist us.

They are such humble people and they truly made a mark in our harts with the manner in which they looked after us.

The Lodge is beautiful and I will advice anyone to visit!

thank you once again for a wonderful weekend!




Had a perfect weekend in iKhaya lamaDube Game Lodge. Tini's game drives are always a highlight - looking already forward to our next stay!.




We really enjoyed our stay,a very nature concentrated,wild,peaceful place to be at!friendly staff & employers indeed! We will surely visit soon again.




bsolutely incredible. From the moment we arrived, to be greeted with hot towels and my fav Amarula, Exceptional. The room was perfect for my mom and I and the braai area already ready for a fire was a real treat. The out door shower was so much fun. Thank you so much for an incredible few days next time will definitely be a lot longer. See you soon.




iKhaya lamaDube is an absolute winner, to the extent that my wife and I have become regulars. The Lodge is peaceful, the rooms always spotless and the private Bomas absolutely divine. Gerd, Tienie and the staff are super-friendly, unpretentious and really care about the wild and conservation. We have found no better place to wind down away from the hustle and bustle of Gauteng, at a really reasonable rate. You can't go wrong!




We had the most awesome time

Just relaxex and enjoy nature

Game drives with amazing sitings

Tienie and Gerd were wonderful hosts

Will definitely go back again




Our stay was awesome. From the time we made the booking we already knew the service would be excellent. It felt like we were at home as everybody carried us on hand and foot all our expectations were met. The staff is friendly and very helpful. The host were great and treated us like we were part of their family. We will definitely be going back there. Because it's in the little things they did that will keep us coming back. Thank you for everything guys




What an AMAZING stay!  We really enjoyed every second.

You all have such big hearts!

Thank you for making it a memorable weekend.

See you soon!




We had a great two days, stunning accommodation, great hosts, beautiful view from our cabin. Definitely going back.





We needed a place to reboot and the Lodge was exactly what we needed

The unit is cozy and romantic just for the two of us. The stay was so refreshing and relaxed. Thank you for the game drive.





Hi, we had a very nice stay in iKhaya LamaDube Game Lodge. Beautiful Lodge, nice pool and cool Game Drives! We saw lions, rhino, giraffe, zebra... and had a lot of fun with Tienie during our game drive.




We had such an amazing time and the attention to us as guests was great.




Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.  Tienie and Gerd really went the extra mile to make our stay unforgettable.

The lodge is not only a business but a passion which is shared with all.

I would highly recommend iKhaya LamaDube.




Good day Tienie and Gerd,

thank you very much for a very pleasant stay at your game lodge. It is always a pleasure to visit.

Hallo Gerd, und Tienie,

Vielen Dank uer den schoenen Aufenthalt. Viele Gruesse




Good evening, we needed a quiet place to relax and see nature. IKhaya LamaDube offered great service . We enjoyed our stay and will come again. Stay blessed.




Our stay at IKhaya LamaDube was such a pleasure. Gerd, Tienie and the rest of the staff made every effort to accommodate our every need. From the moment we booked till after we left they were wonderful hosts.

If you want to break away from the city rat race and you looking for a place to do absolutely nothing then this is where you need to go. Well equipped with everything you need, clean and comfortable.

I would go back here at the drop of a hat and experience more of what the area has to offer. Glamping as it should be done!

Edward & Emma




Hi, Thanks for the great weekend. Staff is amazing and so is the resort. I will be back again :)




Thank you for a wonderful stay. We enjoyed every minute of our visit and the bonus was definitely the Safari with the owners.

We will definitely visit again!




Visiting with Tienie and Gerd is always a pleasure.ᅠᅠThey are generous and gracious hosts and nothing is too much for them when it comes to making their guests comfortable.

This is a great place to just get away and let your hair down and relax.

Two days can feel like a two week break away as a result of the absolute peace and quiet of Ikhaya lamaDube.




Fantastic stay.ᅠᅠVery neat and comfortable unit.ᅠFrom arrival to departure it was an enjoyable stay.ᅠᅠFantastic hosts, Tienie and Gerd you are great.ᅠᅠSo much passion for the bush and the wildlife.ᅠᅠThe game drive was awesome and the well prepared breakfast stop en-route, thank you for the trouble in preparing refreshments and breakfast on theᅠᅠdrive.ᅠᅠWill definitely recommend to all.

Once again we had a wonderful stay at iKhaya. The service was exceptional. Our Log Cabin was clean and had all the necessary equipment. Overall it was the quite weekend away (with no problems) we looked for.




Absolutely enjoyed the facility. I have and already been recommending my peers to your lodge and I personally look forward to seeing you again, in fact, I will be arranging a booking at the end of the month for later this year with 2 or 4 friends. If the cottages had a TV set it would be even more enjoyable. Thanks a lot.

It was a very nice stay. Thank you very much for your warm welcome and especially for the long-hour search for the lions! Your lodge is perfect a place to relax.




iKhaya lamaDube was a wonderful get away, the little units are lovely and private and the unit we were in had a wonderful view.

The units were so beautifully set up and presented.

Thank you for the wonderful stay and hospitality that you gave us at iKhaya, we had a wonderful time.





Good day Tienie,

We appreciated the stay at iKhaya lamaDube Game Lodge in December. As you saw, my wife had that small accident at home just before coming to you, so the complete rest was welcome. I would have appreciated some more time to catch up with some bird watching, but that will have to wait for another time.

We appreciated the facilities, and would love to come again some day.

Regards Mike



Dear Tiene and Gerd,

For the second year in a row we have started the new year at the Ikhaya LamaDube and, once again, it has been a memorable one, full of fun, relax and good company.

thank you very much to your and your staff for the great hospitality again.

Manuela, Andrew, Michaela and Claudio



Very friendly and very helpful staff. The Lodge was very cozy, clean and well equipped. We enjoyed our second stay at the game resort very much and can definitely recommend it.

We wish Gerd and Tienie all the best in the new year 2015




Thank you for your hospitality!ᅠ Game drive was amazing!




We were impressed right from the start at the reception. The log cabin we stayed in was just what we needed with our own private lapa where we could listen to the wild animals at night while enjoying our own camp fire. We have been on many game drives, BUT Gerd gave us the best one ever!!! This lodge is highly recommended.

Thank you for your hospitality. Henk & Ronell



Thank you very much for a wonderful visit to your lodge. We found the accommodation and service of world class standard. We enjoyed every minute and will like to return soon. With our very best wishes, Albert and Elmarie

Dear Tienie & Gerd,

Thank you sooooo much for a wonderful weekend - it was great! And the game drives definitely memorable :) I shall spread the word amongst my friends and colleagues.




What a fabulous place! Marc and I are so glad that we've found a little gem right on our doorstep!

The little personal touches were great! The private boma, with the set table is so romantic and the stilted accommodation is incredible!

As for the game drives, I doubt any other game drive will be comparable! It was something different to a very formal game drive! Tienie and Gerd, you are such incredible hosts and we have already recommended Ikhaya Lama Dube Lodge to a whole bunch of people!

Wanda & Marc



Tienie & Gerd

Thank you for an amazing anniversary weekend (7-10 August 2014) You really went out of your way to make everything special for us.ᅠᅠAlso want to thank you for the special game drive on 09/08/14. That was fun, specially with Tsepho the ostrich!!!!! Can not wait to see all the photos Tienie took. We will definitely be visiting again. Give Ludwig a hug from me.

Thanks again for everything.

Yolandi & Duncan



Most enjoyable stay we have ever had in the Dinokeng Game Reserve. This was my 5th time to this area and I can truly say that the peacefulness of the area and camp made it most enjoyable. The Safari Tent Camp was awesome and the game drive the longest and best we have ever had. Thank you Gerd and Tienie. We will definitely be back and will surely recommend iKhaya LamaDube Game Lodge to friends and family.

Kind regards, Riaan & Marni




It was an absolute awesome weekend - we loved it.ᅠᅠThe place is immaculate and the hosts were incredible.ᅠᅠWe had a lovely game drive and loved spending time with the lion.Well done iKhaya LamaDube!!!!ᅠᅠWe will definitely be back.

Hi Tienie,

I had a pleasant stay. Everything from check in to check out was superb. The game drive was awesome as it was a first time experiance for my fiancee'. She couldn't stop talking about your place and how everything fitted well with nature. Your staff offered great service at all times, definitely it will never be the last time we come to iKhaya LamaDube.

We had an awesome time.

Tienie, I should say that I learned a lot from you regarding birds, animals and their behaviour.

Thank you, Solomon



iKhaya LamaDube is a lovely, tranquil setting... You can't believe you are in Gauteng. The hosts are super-hospitable and really went the extra mile to make our Wedding Anniversary special! I highly recommend iKhaya LamaDube to couples who want to get away from the hustle and bustle of it all. Tienie's game drive was unforgettable!

Regards, Stuart and Anel



Liewe Gerd en Tienie baie dankie vir die heerlike tyd wat ons by julle kon deurbring ons het dit baie geniet en kon lekker rus agv die stilte daar. Julle is liewe gasvrye spontane mense. Ons het julle geselskap baie geniet. Sal weer daar kom draai! Groete Faantjie en Anwyn



Gerd & Tienie,

Our stay was very enjoyable. The accommodation was clean and tidy. As hosts, the two of you were fantastic. The impromptu game drive on the aturday morning was great, as was the game drive in the afternoon. I am sure you will see us again in the future.

Regards, Johan & Ilza



iKhaya LamaDube is one of our favourite holiday destinations and we have spent two great breakaways in the luxury tent and we have been to the Big 5 house twice as well.ᅠᅠTienie's attention to detail is awesome and we would definitely recommend Ikhaya and will return as often as possible.ᅠᅠWe love the boma and the tent is so romantic. Usually we don't return to a holiday destination as we love exploring new places, but Ikhaya is an exception to that rule.ᅠᅠWe were impressed with the abundance of wildlife that we saw on our way to the Lodge.ᅠᅠHearing the call of the jackal and lions roaring during the evening just adds to the wonderful experience.ᅠᅠIkhaya will always have a special place in our hearts.




Hallo Tienie

Soos ek reeds in die e-pos gese het, het ons dit regtig baie geniet.ᅠᅠDie wildsrit was die kersie op die koek!

Dit is ook duidelik dat jy jou hand op alles hou!

Ons hoop om gou weer by julle 'n draai te maak.

Roelof en Elmarie



To: Tienie and Gerd, Thank you so much for the woderful place, we enjoyed being there the place is awesome, the quietness so lovely what a place to be as for the game drive we loved it. Keep up the good job GOD BLESS YOU

From Isaac and the team.



Dear Tienie and Gerd,

Thanks for your exquisite hospitality during our stay at your property, from Dec. 31 to Jan. 2.

The log cabin was perfect, cosy, well equipped and perfectly cleaned. We really appreciated all the attention to the smallest details.

The place is so peaceful and relaxing that we will definitely organize other gateway with you in the next future.

Thanks for everything and all the best for the new year!

Well done and thank you very much!




Baie dankie vir die wonderlike tyd by iKhaya LamaDube Lodge, dit was regtig n besonderse tyd en ek sal dit verseker vir almal aanbeveel.

Groete en voorspoed,

We really enjoyed our stay at your Lodge. The game drive was Superb, facilities clean and out of this world. we hope we will be back soon with other couples. keep the good work. Thumbs up for you. May God bless you.




Ons het baie lekker gekuier, die verwelkomings drankie was "to die for", die personeel was baie vriendelik en behulpsaam, so was ons slaapplekke baieᅠᅠkeurig en smaakvol.ᅠᅠDie kuiertjie by ons privaat Boma was onvergeetlik.ᅠᅠDie wildsrit was natuurlik ons hoogtepunt, Tienie en Gert het dit uit en uit die moeite werd gemaak met hulle spesiale bederf op die rit.ᅠᅠSal defnitief weer daar gaan kuier.




Dear Guys

This was one of the best weekends we had. The staff and crew were absolutely amazing. The cherry on the top was the guys dressing up our private Boma for my proposal/engagement, It was awesome and yes was the answer.

Thank you guys again for an awesome weekend


Wayne & Jacky



Hi Tienie,

Our stay with you was awesome (as usual). We absolutely love coming there it's like our second home. As you know we brought with us two friends from Cape Town. they have never been to the bush before and were amazed at your knowledge, passion and energy for the Dinokeng Game Reserve, you now have some new visitors. Phil and I have always found that coming to stay at Ikhaya gives us the destress and energy to cope in the City for another couple of months. We cannot wait to come and stay again at your wonderful lodge. See you soon and much love to you from us.

John and Phil. xxxxx




Thank you so much for a lovely weekend. We enjoyed the game drive and theᅠᅠway you interacted with your guests. The pool cottage was very nice and the room beautifully decorated.

We will definitely come back, and this time I will be healthy with no

From Veronica and Thomas



Frik and I had an exceptionally good weekend at the lodge. The kitchen is well equipped, the lapas around each unit makes it a very private and great "kuier plek". I am in the customer service industry and want to salute both you Tienie and Gerd on the extra mile you walk for your clients!ᅠᅠThe cherry on the cake was the seeing of the 2 lion but we were very glad they did not catch Sipho!

Elize and Frik



We had a great few days, peaceful and quiet, good accommodation, nothing was too much trouble, good game viewing but no lions and elephants but we heard the lions, great value for money, we will be back.




iKhaya LamaDube is a Home away from Home. Tienie and Gerd you are excellent host's and made us feel so welcome. Coming from Botswana we have been on many Game Drives but our game drive with yourselves was priceless and gets top marks! The accommodation is amazing so much detail and so in tune with nature all your hard work is so appreciated. We will certainly be recommending you to other couples who need a break from their kids, time to unwind, reconnect with nature and reconnect with each other. Thank you so much we had such a enjoyable stay and are so grateful for your excellent hospitality.

We had an amazing time, you guys are the best. We will always come back :-) Thank you for everything, Cindy and Venessa




Our stay was the best. We felt closer to the Lord our creator. The game drive showed us that we really need to get involved in the saving of wild life in South Africa, rather the whole world. Your hospitality is out of this world, we felt so welcomed and our stay makes us proud to know people of your calibre.

Holiday of the century!!!!!!!! we have recommended friends and relatives....

Tienie you are the BOSS.




Good day

We had a wonderful holiday at iKhaya LamaDube, we enjoyed our Big 5 chalets and they are very beautiful! We loved the pool and the Game drive was just perfect! The whole group was very excited and are looking forward to come back in the near future to relax and enjoy nature.

A million thanx again on behalf of the group, please do inform us of any other future specials that you might have.

Kind regards,




Thank you so much for everything !!! It was the greatest weekend ever.ᅠ I will recommend iKhaya to anyone.ᅠ If you want a breakaway in the bush with a personal touch, iKhaya is the place to be!!!




Hi Tienie and Gerd,

We really had a fantastic time with you at iKhaya. Your lodge is certainly relaxing and the detail from the flowers on our bed to the fun on the game drive was a great experience and made us feel truly welcome.

We look forward to joining you again in the future.

thank you for a lovely, peaceful and nature escape. my husband and i will definitely make a yearly visit there. it was mind challenging to be surrounded by nature and away from all the technology we live with daily. we got to spend time and talk and get to know each other better after four years of marriage, i loved the shower in the morning and the fact that its out door. most of all i loved how you welcomed us and even walked up to our lodge and came to greet us in the morning, and the fact that you had the room beautifully decorated for us. Thank you and see you next year. I’m telling everyone about it and the two lions we saw on our way there. it was really beautiful. Thank you.




Hi Tienie and Gerd,

I cannot say enough thank yous to you guys for making my birthday so very special. You have definitely gained some more customers from that weekend. My guests loved the place and some are planning their birthday's with you also. Your lodge must be one of the best we have ever found and when leaving makes us feel sad to go home.

You really do have some of the best accommodation we have stayed in and the ambience at iKhaya LamaDube is second to none.

we love and miss you and will be back very soon, once again thank you for the best birthday weekend ever.
