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

Accomodation

Each and every iKhaya LamaDube unit has been intricately, intentionally and personally designed by iKhaya co-owner, Tienie Graf.

Not only has her design eye lent itself to every aspect of the lodge but its effect has been soulful, calming, and extremely comfortable, without ever detracting from the incredible structures.

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

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.

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…
