Makweti Safari Lodge

Makweti Safari Lodge

Map
R33 past Vaalwater, Johannesburg, , South Africa

The owners originally built Makweti as a vacation house, but then decided to turn it into a safari lodge with a major commitment: to provide high luxury in raw nature, for a maximum of 10 guests. Secluded in the bush are five chalets, each with a viewing deck, fireplace, bathroom (with hot and cold running water), and frothy netting looped over the bed. Dinner is at tables set with feathers, nests, and local artifacts. The Malawian chef takes pan-African exotica, such as ostrich and crocodile, to epicurean levels, serving it with just-picked greens, native fruits, and estate wines. Forays to see raptors, bush babies, and white rhino are customized; many take place in response to the call of the hunting lion.
