About Us

Private, tranquil,

self-catering luxury

at its finest.

iKhaya LamaDube Game Lodge is a self-catering lodge situated in the Dinokeng Game Reserve. The reserve is known for being malaria-free and home to the Big 5 while being right on the doorstep of Johannesburg and Pretoria. Our lodge is a home-away-from home where romance, peace and serenity awaits you in a natural African bush setting.

We, at iKhaya LamaDube strive to provide our guests with a true atmosphere of relaxation, seclusion and absolute tranquillity.

A variety of private and intimate accommodation is available to suit individual preferences. Each of our eight units accommodates two persons only.

The lodge opens itself up to the opportunity for small groups of friends to book the lodge in its entirety, be it a small conference, wedding or just a getaway.

Our no young children policy creates an opportunity for our guests to unwind and relax while rekindling by the fire and spending some private, quality time together.

We can’t wait to share our piece of paradise with you and welcome you with open arms into the iKhaya LamaDube family!

– Tienie and Gerd, Your Hosts

From our guest book

Words cannot describe the experience, they do not do it justice. iKhaya lodge was magical, the staff were friendly and attentive, the atmosphere was peaceful and we had an amazing time at the lodge, and due to the rain we spent a lot of time at the lodge. The accommodation was comfortable and perfectly suited for the bushveld experience. The bed was comfortable and the kitchen well equipped. Attention to detail especially the small things ie the mosquito mats and welcome drinks. Complete privacy and peace. Will definitely return, even if it is just to sit on the balcony overlooking the Zebra, Antelope and Gnu drinking at the dam and absorb the tranquility and ambiance of what iKhaya lodge has to offer

It was amazing to join Tinie and Gerd in iKhaya!
It would be impressive to sit on the deck of the two new apparments and watch the Rhinos drinking water!
Thanks for the expeeriences.
best regards

Ek sal iKhaya LamaDube enige tyd aanbeveel. Alles is daar vir ‘n lekker kuier en is super skoon, netjies en die detail om alles besonders te maak is daar, wow. Personeel is vriendelik en behulpsaam en gaan uit hulle pad om dit so lekker as moontlik vir jou te maak. Sal definitief weer kom kuier. Tienie, Gerd en span, baie dankie.

01/12/2019 – Dirk

Baie mooi, privaat en perfek vir ‘n romantiese wegbreek.
Die eenhede is baie mooi uitgelê vir privaatheid en ontspanning. Die personeel is vriendelik en behulpsaam. Ons het die wegbreek baie geniet en sal definitief weer gaan.

24/11/2019 – Yolande

Vreedsame lodge met uitstekende persoonlike kliëntediens.
‘n Lodge wat die ekstra tree sal neem vir hulle kliënte. Vanaf die verwelkoming en kamer wat pragtig opgemaak is, tot die vuur wat reeds gepak was vir ons, sal ons vir seker weer hierdie lodge besoek en aanbeveel.

25/11/2019 – Elmarie

14/10/2019 – Karlien

My stay at Ikhaya Lamadube Lodge was out of this world. The hospitality at the lodge is really top notch. Friendly staff members who went out of their way to make sure our stay was perfect.

Cleanliness of our room was very impressive. I’m a hotelier by profession and not even hotels are as clean as the lodge.

Money paid for the Poolside cottage was worth it and given the chance I will come back again, again and again :-):-)

I’m surely going to recommend the lodge to all my family and friends:-)

Thank you once more for a beautiful fun weekend we had…

22/02/2021 – Lebo Ngoepe

 

Absolutely lovely place very peaceful. They staff is great and they make the place feel like a home.

The best part is the just being surrounded by nature and having my own private space and could hardly tell if they were other visitors around that for me ticks all the right boxes.

I would definitely come back for such a relaxing environment. Thank you for keeping your lodge clean and making it relaxing for us.

22/11/2021 – Neo Tladi

 

Happy with the stay, peaceful atmosphere and weather conditions were great, hospitality was great and can’t complain, had a lekker time and thank you again for the hospitality.

08/11/2021 – Lesley Motsoane

 

We had a fantastic stay and will be back.

The hospitality was fantastic and your staff were so friendly and polite. The lodge is beautiful and clean really more than a home away from home.

Thank you for making our stay wonderful we will be back.

21/10/2021 – Bev & Clinton Bacon

 

We spent a weekend there recently in one of the private units with its own swimming pool.

From the time of our arrival, (we were met by two of the staff); who were absolutely excellent in arranging everything we asked for (we forgot ice).

The unit was immaculately presented and extremely well furnished and thought out; the unit had everything we needed to enjoy our stay.

Will definitely be back…

21/10/2021 – Lucia van Wyk

 

Really enjoyed my stay at iKhaya LamaDube Game Lodge! The log cabins were stunning. Nothing better than sitting on the patio watching the sunset.

We came down there to plan a engagement for my brother in law. The staff was so friendly and helpful in making this happen. Will definitely be back.

18/10/2021 – Jamie Lee Waldauer

 

iKhaya LamaDube is an exquisite break away lodge in a tranquil atmosphere.

The unit is well equipped. The staff reception is making you feel like a VIP guess. The room service is a spoil returning to your unit after a day of game viewing. The roaming animals outside the lodge was very special.

Thank you for a special memory made

16/10/2021 – Sunelle du Toit

A tranquil, safe, private and beautiful location and so close to the City. Staff (Cynthia) professional and friendly. The Villa in which we stayed was clean and neat with the perfect ambience created, attention to detail is noticeable.

Nice to sit on the deck and watch the variety of game passing by. We also went for a self drive and were lucky to see the rhinos.

We had a great stay!! Have already send photos to friends and recommended your facility.

07/10/2021 – Ria & Rudolph Waldauer

What a wonderful stay we had! The staff are incredibly welcoming and the accommodation super. Loved the private boma and beautiful views from our own private deck. Will recommend this place to anyone.

20/09/2021 – Lani Uys

Photos do not do justice to the place, its beyond amazing. Well stocked for self catering. A real tranquil place. Staff that does beyond the call of duty. From arrival to departure we felt at home.

Thank you iKhaya LamaDube. Until the next 5star experience.

07/09/2021 – Jerry Chikawa

This has been an amazing stay for me and my partner. The experience was incredible from communication before the actual arrival date. We were at ease knowing what we need to do before hand.

The reception process was top class. Our suite was really luxurious, well prepared for us. The stay for the whole weekend was really pleasant.

Thank you so much for such a memorable stay.

02/08/2021 – Motlatsi and Robert

We stayed at the Luxury bush villa for 3 unforgettable nights during July 2021.

This lodge is exceptional. From the location to the views, to the staff, to the owners, everything is perfect. The villa is large and very luxurious. You have a great view and you can see the animals from your terrace at the waterhole.

The place is very safe and clean. This is an amazing place and we will definitely be back soon.

27/07/2021 Jonanda van der Merwe

We had a wonder stay. Everything was outstanding, and the owners were very accommodating despite us having to re-schedule our dates at the last minute. The suite was well equipped and beautifully presented, staff were exceedingly helpful.

21/06/2021 – Darryl Harbour

We live in JHB and wanted a breakaway from the city noise etc. We searched and came across iKhaya LamaDube. What a wonderful place. We were met with such professionalism and grace.

We were taken to our SafariTent and a full walkthrough of the place was given. We were blown away by the staff’s friendliness and the place of course.

I can recommend this place as a great go to if you want to escape the city and go to the bush!

Keep up the good work and we will definitely see you again soon!!!

12/06/2021 – Angelique Burr-Dixon

The place is home away from home. We got to relax and our eyes were feasting on the amazing nature and its animals.

We were welcomed with warm hands, the lodge was spotless. The staff is warm and always ready to help. The place my wife called pure serenity. Thank you again and not forgetting the owners who are always willing to put their visitors first.

We were spoiled to an African dance snacks and drink. Wow and wow. Next time am staying at what used to be the Rondavel (Now: Hideaway Cottage)

10/05/2021 Solomon Makota

Was absolutely n fantasiese wegbreek tussen die bos en stilte. Personeel is vriendelik. Ek kan nie wag vir n vlg nie. Verseker n aanbeveling..

10/05/2021 – Hans Nel

iKhaya LamaDube is a wonderfully situated place ideal for a relaxing getaway. We appreciated the discreet but attentive staff who took care of our needs while we enjoyed the peace and tranquillity of the lodge.

We had a thoroughly relaxing time during our stay there and can highly recommend iKhaya LamaDube if you are looking for the same. Thanks to Tienie and Gerd for their warm hospitality. We will definitely be returning.

09/05/2021 – Byron de Goveia

We had a great stay once again. The luxury villas are a real home away from home and the staff went above and beyond to see to everything we needed. One of our favourite places to breakaway to.

13/04/2021 – Chris Reeder

07/04/2021 – Thelma Maboe

What an amazing special romantic venue, very private for those wanting to spend a romantic break away.

The unit is spotless with amazing views of the open bush and a lot of different animals.

Thank you to all the staff for making our weekend one to remember. The welcome drink as well as the Romantic candle table setup for us to use when we wanted.

We will definitely be back !!!!!!!!

15/03/2021 – Monia Steyn

What a wonderful Hide away gem.

We had an amazing time and our accommodation was fantastic, everything was so clean and prepared for us on our arrival.

The little details of our table had been set outside and our flowers on our bed, plus the gowns and slippers made us feel so special.

The staff were so helpful and caring and our little pool put the cherry on the cake.

Thank you for a wonderful visit,

08/03/2021 Louise and Carl Booysen

What a lovely experience we had at iKhaya LamaDube Game Lodge. We were made to feel special since we set our feet in the reception area. The cabin was absolutely spotless and we felt safe at all times. We would love to revisit at some time.

Thank you to all the staff.
