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.



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.





Important Notice:


Due to the current infestation with polyphagous shot hole borer or PSHB in various areas of ZA, we have to advise:


* Don't move firewood out of your areas elsewhere, buy your firewood closer to your final journey to ensure you don't transport pests. Rather "Buy it where you intend to burn it", and burn it all where you buy it. *





Nice stay and very quiet,had a great time thank you.




For anyone looking to get away from the busy city life I would highly recommend ikhaya lamadube Game Lodge. The staff is extremely friendly and the way they welcom you to the lodge is very special.

Thank you for an amazing weekend.





We were well welcomed...our chalete was neat and clean when we got there...

There staff is very friendly...

We really loved the Boma..

Thank u, we are definitely considering of coming back!




Very quaint, neatly kept accommodation. Everything you need! Friendly staff and great setting.




Ons sal iKhaya LamaDube enige tyd aanbeveel, dit was 'n belewenis! Almal is vreeslik vriendelik en behulpsaam en gaan uit hulle pad om dit so lekker as moontlik te maak. Alles is superskoon en netjies. Sal definitief wees soontoe gaan. Tienie en Gerd en span, baie dankie vir die al die moeite wat julle doen.




Rus vir 'n mens se siel.

As dit privaatheid, rus en vrede is wat jy soek is dit beslis die plek om te gaan. Almal is so vriendelik en gasvry. Beslis 'n plekkie waar ons weer sal gaan.





We were warmly welcomed. The lady on the reception was so kind and welcoming and the place itself was so perfect, we really enjoyed our stay, it was so amazing.And all the stuff was friendly and helpful.Thank you very much.




Thank you for the lovely "touches" you added. Chocolate for the guests, the beautiful decorated bed.  The lovely table settings.  The flowers in the room.

The kind attention of the staff, the pool towels that were supplied without even asking.

We really enjoyed our stay and will be back.

Thank you so much.




Ons was op hul hande gedra.

Wat 'n ondervinding, van aankoms tot vertrek. Skoon, privaat, vriendelik. Die spesiale aandag, toe hul hoor my vrou verjaar, met die oopmaak van die privaat boma, en nog. Baie dankie, ons waardeer en sien jul weer.




Second visit here and both times it was awesome. Clean and well maintained units, beautiful views and friendly staff. Units are far enough away from each other to provide privacy. Well worth the price, and they will see us again soon.





We had a very nice relaxing break at iKhaya. Everything was excellent with very friendly and helpful staff.




I decided to spoil my husband with a Birthday weekend breakaway.

We booked a weekend at the ikhaya Lamadube Lodge.

This was honestly one of the most romantic and relaxing breakaways we have had! The staff was extremely accommodating,friendly and professional.

We booked the safari tent and words cannot describe how magnificent the experience was. Romantic Bomb fire in our own private Boma, very well equipped kitchen and our love for outside showers! The safari tent was fully equipped with everything you need and so much more + super comfy and luxurious bedding that made us struggle to get out of bed the next morning :-)

Thank you Tienie, Gerd and staff for one unforgettable weekend!!!




I arranged this weekend for my son and his wife and their feedback is that this is a great facility for a break-away weekend, not too far away, and that they really enjoyed the time there.




Accommodation was very good; clean and had everything you needed. Private Boma was a treat. Attention to detail for a warm welcome. Throughout our stay small things here and there done by the staff for us was really appreciated. Would definitely recommend it to anyone.




We had a wonderful stay, saw many animals, and a relaxing family time at the Lodge. The chalets were very well equipped, the staff were very helpful and we lacked nothing. Thank you for making our time special.




A few days at iKhaya LamaDube Game Lodge made me aware of how beautiful our country is. sitting in our private boma, in front of a log fire with the stars as our blanket, is a surreal experience. the roar of a lion outside the lodge is enough to give you goosebumps and as we conversed in whispers, we became aware of the beauty of the setting.




Baie dankie aan almal by iKhaya LamaDube wat ons verblyf so spesiaal gemaak het. Die akkommodasie is ten volle toegerus, jy hoef letterlik net jou klere, kos en drank saam te vat. Die res is klaar daar. Sal dit enige tyd aanbeveel.




Amazing and serene , that is what iKhaya LamaDube is. Once you enter the gates you step into aura of tranquility which is occasionally punctuated with the chirping of birds , the hyena laugh or roar of a lions. Form our stilted deck, we observed an array of animals peacefully grazing as the majestic giraffe nibbled on the high leaves.  From the moment we stepped into the reception with Cynthia,  the perfect chaperons, proffering us with a cooling cocktail and warm towels to ease the Dinokeng dust off,  and Gerd the perfect host. Our stay was indeed amazing and we highly recommend it!




Die gasvryheid is uitstekend. Baie netjies en skoon! Sal enige iemand aanraai om hulle te besoek!




Was really amazing. The cleanliness. You would expect spiders and creepy crawlies everywhere, but there was nothing. All the dishes were sparkling clean upon arrival. From the moment we arrived we were handed warm refresher towels and a welcome drink. The staff ran to us the moment they heard there were elephants and rhino nearby and directed us that way. We managed to see these just outside the lodge on the first day.




First breakaway for my wife and I online since we got married, and what an experience. Quite, beautiful and peaceful. It is really worth it and there prices are very reasonable. Each room haa there own boma, so you can enjoy a nice bush veld fire crackling in private.




Excellent Service! Neat and tidy. Will definatelty visit again.




Thank you so much for hosting me and Taryn and for the wonderful hospitality. Everyone was so friendly, accommodating and helpful... We loved every moment of our stay. Thank you again Tienie and staff!

 Daniel and Taryn



Tienie and Gerd and their staff are tops! Dinokeng is an enjoyable reserve, especially for birdwatchers.  Good conditions for stargazing, despite being not so far from a major city.




The lodge is located in the bush, so you have to drive 30 minutes on gravel roads. (1,5 h from Johannesburg Airport).

The place welcomes you with wooden african Cabins and Cottages as well as a rodavel and a pool cottage. Every unit has its own boma which is setup every day by the friendly staff to be used at the evening.

The cabins are very pretty and you feel very well as soon as you step in.

The kitchen includes everything you need for self catering and the view from the deck (especially the sunsets) is stunning.

We've seen Zebras, Wilderbeets, Giraffes, warthogs, impala when we had our breakfast on the deck or.

We also spotted a cheetah one evening we drove back to the lodge after a day trip... Just besides the road.

The hosts and all the stuff is very friendly which makes the stay at iKhaya LamaDube lodge so special.

Sitting at the booma in the evening and listen to all that animal noises arround is so stunning (if it's still daylight you're also lucky to see some of them).

Strongly recommend this place to everybody who's looking for a special place to relax and enjoy the nature.





We had a wonderful weekend at Ikhaya lamaDube game lodge. The accommodation in the Safari Tent was very cosy and comfortable. It was very private and had our own boma. We were welcomed by Phillip and Ntombi and their friendly service was outstanding. We went on a selfdrive through the park which was amazing. On our way out we met the friendly owners Tienie and Gerd and will definitely return soon. A magical weekend.




Stunning! Stunning! Stunning!

Was een van ons beste plekke wat ons nog ooit by was. Die plek is pragtig, skoon en so mooi geleë in die bosveld. Ons gaan vir seker weer terug soontoe. Die diens is uit die boonste rakke en mense is ongelooflik vriendelik en hulpvaardig. Love die plek!




This was the best weekend, the venue is perfect, and the safari tent was so beautiful and neat.... our welcoming at reception when we arrived was just so perfect, made me feel at was just what we needed to switch off for 2 days and get perspective. thank you once again for the visit we will surely come back ...




Dear Gerd, Tienie, Fantastic staff & Ludwig

Thank you again for the stunning stay we had at your establishment. iKhaya Lama Dube is definitely our favorite place.

Everything is PERFECT as always. We look forward to our next stay.

Thank You again for everything and always going that extra mile to ensure our comfort & happiness:)




Thank you Gerd and Tienie for the wonderful stay. We had a weekend of pure relaxation and your staff went out of their way to make it so.

Our stay included an unexpected additional person  and our hosts made a plan to accommodate this person.

The lodge was superb. It Was neat, clean and welcoming and had every necessity.

The animals around the lodge included sable antelope, a rare sighting indeed.

On my partners birthday, the staff created a romantic and beautiful setting in the boma, which was most appreciated.

We will definitely go back to iKhaya because of the superb value for money.




We had an amazing experience at iKhaya LamaDube Game Lodge. The staff were extremely accommodating and prepared to go the extra mile to ensure we had a good stay. The owners, Tienie and Gerd were helpful and always answered the phone when we called for advise or assistance. They were very knowledgeable about the animals as well as the reserve. We even had a romantic setting on our patio in celebration of our wedding anniversary. An enjoyable experience and we would definitely be back.




It was very lovely. Great setup as well. I'd definitely come back there over and over again.




Our stay at iKhaya lamaDube was absolutely perfect! The cottage was beautifully prepared on arrival with our fire ready for lighting in our private boma. We were welcomed by professional staff, who were extremely helpful and friendly. We had a romantic table laid out for us on our second night! The service is exceptional and we'll definitely be back the first chance we get!




Good day

The accommodation was superb, clean and a great getaway.  We had our German visitor with us who absolutely loved the tent.  In fact so much he will be returning with his fiance. Regards




Good day

Brilliant stay and awesome service.

Will definitely be back.  Beautiful view from unit 2.




We stayed in the little rondavel, which was very private & so relaxing. Everything you need is there &

Adelaine & Phillip (staff) really went out of their way to make it even more enjoyable for us. They are really a big asset to the place.

We have already recommended the place to a few people




Dear Gerd & Tienie and staff, what a fantastic place to stay. All the cottages are beautiful. Service is great. Certainly come back once!





Absolutely loved our stay.  The staff were amazing and so friendly.  Nothing was too much trouble.  The peace and quiet was just what we needed.  The boma really adds to the bush experience and we loved the romantic dinner setting on Saturday night.  The log cabin overlooking the watering hole was great and we managed to see game coming and going.  We definitely will return to stay.

Thank you so much




Amazing lodge, great value for money, short trip from Jhb, staff were exceptional and owners were super friendly! Cabin was awesome with private boma. Would recommend to anyone wanting a peaceful getaway in the bush.




Thank you for a great stay. We had everything we needed, felt like home.  The staff was so friendly and very helpful. Will defiantly come back again!




We stayed for four nights in our lovely cottage. All facilities for self catering are present, all cottages have their own boma. The staff is friendly and helpfull. The place is very clean with superb beds. Especially the support of the owners Tinie/Gerd has to be aknowledged. Without their support we would not hae terieved our lost luggage.

Plain game is roaming in front of the cottage, the privacy of the place has to be mentioned. Driving in Dinokeng is rewarding!




We are in love with iKhaya lamaDube and it is our place of choice, when we visit the reserve. The owners are passionate about nature & wildlife and it shows.The accommodation is perfection.

The staff are FANTASTIC and little Ludwig, is the best host, giving a royal welcome with a shiny wet nose and wagging tail:)

Thank you for our wonderful weekend, we will see you very soon.

Pat & Sash



Wonderful place, with amazing staff and service. Will definitely be back for another wonderful, weekend break.




We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at iKhaya LamaDube Lodge. Accommodation was clean and well stocked with the required appliances. We enjoyed the welcomed arrival along with the cool wet towel and cold refreshing drink at reception. Great for that hot day. Staff were also very welcoming, polite and professional during our stay. We will be back.




A wonderfully private getaway - with easy access to the Self Drive Routes. Loved the private bomas and the special table setups with silver under-plates and wine goblets.




Thank you, we had a lovely relaxing time.  Room was beautiful and clean.  No children around which makes a huge difference.  Thanks again we will definitely be back.

Tanya & Paul



We decided to celebrate our 11 year Wedding Anniversary at Ikhaya LamaDube Game Lodge and it proved to be the best decision. Tienie and her team are simply amazing. We had a romantic table setup with Champagne to celebrate on arrival and even a romantic table the second evening. We loved every minute of our stay there and would return in a heartbeat. Thank you Tienie & Team




A big thank you to two of the most wonderful hosts on this planet •„ Tienie and Gerd : you always go the extra mile.  Your staff, Phillip, Nthombi and Judea make staying at Ikhaya such a pleasure.  For true bush lovers, the tented unit is par excellence and the sounds of the bush just add to this amazing experience.  In the whisper of the wind, one can hear the lions, hyena, cheetah, wildebeest etc.  Awake early in the morning to be treated to Rhino, Wildebeest, Giraffe, Warthog walking past on the fence perimeter (to mention a few).  Wow!!   A great battery recharge in the midst of nature.  We love this place and will be back .. Again.  Vielen Dank,

Jackie & Anton



The staff at the reception was welcoming and very friendly.  The individual Boma setup is very nice and makes you feel relaxed. The bush veld is such a calming place to unwind. The accommodation itself is very spacious in the environment you find yourself, it was clean and neat. The decorations on the bed was welcoming as well as the bottle champagne.

I will recommend the lodge for anyone looking to break away and get some much needed soul rest.




We spend 16 nights in the safari tent of Ikhaya LamaDube inside the Dinokeng Game Reserve. We had a fantastic time largely thanks to Tienie, Gert and all their super friendly support staff. They treated us as VIPs and went out of their way to make our stay special.

The safari tent was nothing like you expect from a tent but instead pure luxury. The kitchen, dining area and bathroom are all outside the tent which makes for a special bush experience. The bed and seating area are in the tent which allows you to hear all the animal sounds during the night and makes for comfortable temperatures at night following hot days. Each accommodation has a private boma in which we had a fire going every evening. Every morning the boma and fire place were cleaned and new twigs and branches set up ready for fire making in the evening. The wood can be purchased on location for a very reasonable price.

It was also possible for us to have our washing done and it as returned to us the next day in such an immaculate way we still miss the ladies.

Dinokeng is a relatively new and upcoming big 5 game reserve close to Pretoria. A high clearance vehicle is preferable as some of the roads are a challenge.

All in all we had a fantastic time at Ikhaya LamaDube and Dinokeng and would recommend it for all needing to relax and rejuvenate in the bush.

Many thanks,

Albert and Patricia.



we enjoyed ourselves. place was clean and well kept. it was very peaceful and staff was very friendly





Excellent stay, we enjoyed our weekend break and had n very good rest. The staff was very friendly and we were offered much more than what we were expecting. The boma was our favourite space!! Thanks for the great time!





We sincerely enjoyed our stay! Even with the power outage we had an amazing experience.

Also many thanks to the staff members who are extremely friendly and helpful!

Will definitely visit again and recommend to friends and family!!




We had the most amazing holiday at Ikhaya lamaDube game lodge.  Our family occupied most of the accommodation and everyone was extremely happy with their unit.  The personal touches everywhere were wonderful.  We felt right in the bush everywhere around the lodge, the bomas were delightful.  The staff were absolutely fantastic and were so informative to chat to.  Tienie and Gerd were a real pleasure to liaise with, from start to finish, going beyond our expectations.  The best game park holiday ever !! Thank you so very much.  And a huge thank you to Tienie and Gerd for bringing something which we left behind by mistake all the way to Lanseria airport - we are all so grateful to you. Hope to be back one day.




From the reception till the end of our stay was wonderful. We were treated with such hospitality by all. Thank you




he accommodation was first class. We really appreciated the personal touches and certainly did not feel like we were camping (glamping),as the tent's double bed and living area were as comfortable as a 5 star hotel room, with all the necessary amenities.

The staff were excellent and nothing was too much trouble.

We will definitely return.




Dit was 'n heerlike naweek! Baie dankie vir al julle moeite!




Very nice and clean. Staff very friendly and helpfull. Will definitely return in summer.

Ludwig went out of his way to make us feeling welcome. Say hi to him.




Service and welcoming the best we ever had, will recommend to any persons for holiday, thanks great experience will definitely be back.

Accommodation wold class.





What an amazing weekend. The service was excellent. The accommodation and surroundings were absolutely perfect. We will be back as often as possible. Don't look any further, if you want an unforgettable breakaway, iKhaya LamaDube is the right choice.




It was amazing, will definitely come again




Loved every second there. The tent is one of these most stylish and comfortable tented accommodation we have stayed in so far. The staff is friendly and very helpful. We will come visit again.




Thank you Tienie and Gerd for the warm welcome and exceptional stay. The cottages were ideal.

Both families thoroughly enjoyed their stay with the personalized service.

We will return

Thank you and keep well




Good day,

Sent my parents to you for the weekend and they really enjoyed their stay. Loved the quietness and that they were able to just relax in the cosy little log cabin.

Thank you




Tienie en Gerd.  Duisend dankies vir 'n wonderlike naweek! Ons het so welkom en spesiaal gevoel.  Ons ervaring was uit n prentjie mooi verhaal :-) Die privaatheid, rustigheid, romantiese eenhede en romantiese atmosfeer het toe gedra tot die perfekte verlowing.

Die staff wat daar werk is ook uit die boonste rakke.  met baie vreindelike en warm harte het hul graag gehelp.

Ons sal verseker binnekort weer die weg breek gebruik.


Gerhard en Chantell



Really enjoyed our stay. Neat. Owners went the extra mile. Thanks for a lovely week-end.

Hannes & Anne-marie



We stayed in the cottage, reception was warm and welcoming. The owners are very hospitable and willing to assist with any needs required. We went for a Self-drive through the bush all day on the Saturday and afterwards stopped at the local watering hole down the road who serves craft beer brewed on premises. We arrived back at our cottage and the staff had set up the boma for a romantic evening, table set with candles and champagne glasses and fire pit prepped (a very welcomed surprise). Went on the Sunday morning for a game drive with the owners, they are passionate and knowledgeable about the bush. In all a Lovely weekend Break.




On arrival we were greeted by the most amazing staff. The treatment was 5 star and the tented accommodation was absolutely beautifully decorated and attention to details was their priority. Hearing the lions roar early hours of the morning, and so close was one of our highlights. Without a doubt one of the best bush chalets we have been to. Thank you



My clients really enjoyed their stay thank you very much




enjoyed my stay. very serene and peacefull.




We had a fantastic stay,enjoyed every minute of it. Very comfortable bush stay, the staff were very friendly and helpful and had an amazing "bush drive". When u need a break from the busy city life, then ikhaya lamadube is the place to go.




The best set up you can ask for, the price is reasonable , I loved the game drive out of this world, the time we were there we could interect with other guest and we enjoyed each other's company so much, the service is excellent.




Our stay was fantastic, i must say your establishment was a good choice, we had a great time, thank you. Definetely referring to friends and family.




It was me and my husbands 29 anniversary and we choose to spend it at iKaya IamaDube Game Lodge.  It was a wonderful weekend.  They spoiled us from we arrived until we left on Sunday.  Thank you everyone who made it special for us and I will return to your lodge anytime.  Thank you

Pieter and Sophia



We received a very warm welcome on our arrival and our accommodation was extremely comfortable (Rondavel) Tienie was an outstanding hostess, going the extra mile, particularly when she found out that we were celebrating our wedding anniversary. She had the staff set us a beautiful candlelit table and  provided free wine and champagne on ice. IKhaya Lamadube Game Lodge is a small, intimate facility, ideal for a quiet romantic break.




My husband took me for my birthday weekend to iKhaya LamaDube. He couldn't have chosen a more peaceful and romantic place. We immediately felt at home, thanks to the genuinely friendly and happy staff. Our log cabin was cosy and private and offers stunning views of the bush (wildlife-watching in your pyjamas) and some incredible star gazing from the deck. The owner's love for nature, wildlife and what they do shows throughout the lodge and they will bend backward to make your stay and game drive absolutely amazing. Can't wait to be back!




From the minute you get to iKhaya you feel the heart beat of being in the bush. One is greeted with 5star treatment. The staff are wonderful. Accommodation , especially the tented unit has everything you need. The staff are always on hand to assist. Sounds of the bush soo close you can almost touch it. Thank you again Gerd and Tienie and your wonderful team for always going the extra mile. Would recommend iKhaya to anyone.

Kind regards,

Anton and Jackie



Lovely place, we had a great stay. The staff gave us a warm welcome, very friendly people and helpful as well. The owners were very kind, they took us on a game drive, great experience. When we got back the staff already prepared a lovely set-up at the boma, very romantic. We stayed at the rondavel, i recommend it. Its nestled between the trees, it has that bushy feel to it. We had a wonderful time. Thank you Tienie Graf. I recommend Ikhaya LamaDube to anyone who’s thinking of visiting Dinokeng Game Reserve.




Close to the Cities and at the same time far out in the bush.

The lodge has everything waht you need and the staff is very friendly and attentive.

Good value for the money.



Awesome private place in the bush. Very very nice place, Loved everything about it apart from having to leave.




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 !

Danie & Yolandie



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.

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.




We enjoyed our stay after a good treatment by the lodge's staff members and would love to visit again.




We had such a wonderful time, it was a true break to stay at iKhaya lamaDube.

Had a lovely time at iKhaya. Staff members are friendly and go out of their why to accommodate you. The Cabin was clean and more than we expected with the lovely deck. The separate bomas is definitely one of the top 3 reasons we will come again. The game drive was a wonderful experience, even though we did not see any of the big five, we had a great time. Overall we had a great time and will (and already did!) recommend it to our friends. iKhaya you will see us again!

The stay was absolutely amazing.ᅠ Very quiet peaceful and comfortable venue. perfect get away location.

The hosts too were very welcoming.

Will definitely visit again.




The Place was beyond our expectation. Its a beautiful place , quiet and peaceful, with friendly staff. The cabins are beautiful and have everything you need to make your stay feel at home.We had a lovely stay.




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 welcoming drinks and hot towels were definitely a wonderful thing to have when you just arrived and we were very impressed with that.

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









Thank you for a great stay! The log cabins are really something special. A sincere thank you for the willingness to assist with accomodation on such short notice. All staff are super friendly and helpful! We appreciate it and will definitely visit again!




Excellent stay, excellent hosts. Couldn't have asked for better. Thank you very much for a great weekend. The game drive was so nice. Gerd went through a lot of trouble to ensure we see a lion and more.




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.

We can't wait to arrange our next visit.

Thank you for making the stay so Memorable.

Regards, Paul & Ilse



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!

Kindest regards, Manuela & Andrew



This is the 2nd time we have been at Ikhaya... & we will always go back again. Such a pleasant place to stay & lovely people working there! Thanks again & see you again...

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.

Good Day,

We had an amazing time.The experience was once in a life time.

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.

Rodney and Liesel, Francistown, Botswana



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.

Lindsey and Marc



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.
