Why Lush Private Lodge?

Tucked into a wooded hillside in a Black Rhino Reserve, a private concession in the malaria-free Pilanesberg National Park, Lush Private Lodge offers guests a unique safari experience.

Experience Situated only a 2-hour drive from Johannesburg & a stone’s throw from the renowned Sun City resort, Pilanesberg is not only home to the coveted Big 5 – lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo & rhino – but hosts over 7,000 animals, more than 350 bird species as well as the rare black rhino & African wild dog.

Since Lush is set in a private concession, it means one thing: Guests can enjoy private game drives in this exclusive-use area as well as the national park, which means that they’ll have the best of both worlds. Being in a private reserve means that you can go on guided bush walks to get even closer to nature.

Children 12 years & older are welcome at Lush.

Stay Lush Private Lodge has 3 bush-facing suites & 2 mountain-facing suites – only distinguished by their views.

Nestled between trees & designed with absolute comfort in mind, the suites boast private decks with splash pools, cushioned loungers & 2-seater tables. En-suite bathrooms feature large freestanding bathtubs & walk-in rain showers.

Communal areas include an inviting bar lounge as well as an open-plan dining & lounge area with a cosy fireplace.

Activities Lush offers a wide range of exciting safari activities, including open 4x4 game drives with a qualified ranger, guided walking safaris & sundowners in the bush.

Optional activities like hot air ballooning & golf at Sun City can also be arranged. Guests who prefer a little more relaxation time, can spend time at the pool, unwind with a good book or play a board game in the lodge’s comfortable bar lounge.
