Jozini Tiger Lodge & Spa

Country: South Africa

Destination: Kwazulu-Natal - Elephant Coast

Property Group: Dream Hotels & Resorts

Style: Nature Lodge

Number of Rooms: 70


Jozini Tiger Lodge & Spa respectfully resembles a traditional Zulu stronghold set on a hilltop above the shores of Lake Jozini, in the far northern reaches of KwaZulu-Natal on the Elephant Coast.

We’ve taken meticulous care to create a sanctuary off the well-trodden tourist path gently co-existing within the natural surrounds, whilst tastefully paying homage to the local culture. Be it a business trip, honeymoon or family getaway, you’ll be drawn here to this accommodation at Jozini, not just for how you’re treated, but for how being here makes you feel. The atmosphere is relaxed and effortless, backed by a high level of top-notch service and personalised hospitality.

At Jozini’s heart is an open-plan restaurant (where youll eat well) ensconced in a wrap-around viewing deck – the perfect place to find a spot in the sun and enjoy the views over the dam. As for our rooms, the amenities are sound. The furnishings simple and elegant – think private balconies, natural wood furniture, with subtle African touches throughout. Whether you’re here for business, a honeymoon, family time, or a spur-of-the-moment weekend break, there’s a key to that perfect room awaiting you at reception.

From our private Mangwanani Spa, to our fully-equipped gym, and rim-flow pool, Jozini Tiger Lodge’s facilities will complete your stay. We also offer extensive conference and banqueting facilities, and are particularly well-known for hosting corporate conferences, international tour groups and team building events. Weddings and honeymoons also top the list of our specialities.

Jozini Lake has become a household name for Tiger fishing, and as we are well-positioned amongst St Lucia, Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Game Reserve, Ndumu Game Reserve and Tembe Elephant Park, a day of game viewing, walking, birding, and picnicking is an easy feat. However, if simple relaxation is all that you seek, you’ll be looking forward to our leisurely afternoon safari cruises across the lake to meet the resident hippos.

Royal Thonga Safari Lodge

Country: South Africa

Destination: Kwazulu-Natal - Elephant Coast

Property Group: Dream Hotels & Resorts

Style: Safari Lodge

Number of Rooms: 14


For holidaymakers planning a self-drive into southern Mozambique from KwaZulu-Natal, this is the perfect opportunity to add Royal Thonga Safari Lodge to your itinerary. This four-star establishment is the crown jewel of ‘the garden province’, quietly nestled within the perimeter of the game-rich Tembe Elephant Park.

The trip is a three-and-a-half hour's drive from the King Shaka International Airport and we highly recommend an extended stay. Aside from the bounty of birds, butterflies and wildlife, Royal Thonga Safari Lodge is a treasure trove of outdoor activities that will occupy even the most adventurous visitors.

Choose from 4x4 game drives, seek out the Big Five, enjoy guided walks through the Sand Forrest, and that’s just the start. Trips to the local village, the nearby cashew farm and butterfly tent must be included, too. For that perfect beach day, Royal Thonga is right on the doorstep of Kosi Bay, where families and friends can embark on loggerhead turtle tracking tours, snorkelling excursions and whale watching boat trips.

Of course, if you want to put your feet up and unwind, Royal Thonga Safari Lodge is just the place to do it. Crafted with natural timber and thatch, the lodge emulates a local Thonga village building style, with focus on with luxurious touches. There is a swimming pool, on-site restaurant and plenty of quiet corners to enjoy a moment to yourself.

The ambience is warm and soulful and each of the 14 villas, including our two family chalets, have been thoughtfully positioned to ensure total privacy. Rooms are well-appointed with quality furnishings and en-suite bathrooms complete with indoor and private outdoor showers. Private decks with seating offer a front-row seat to the glorious surroundings. It really is as good as it sounds!

Day-visitors are also welcome at Royal Thonga Safari Lodge, and wheelchair facilities are available.

Avalon Springs

Country: South Africa

Destination: Cape Winelands

Property Group: Dream Hotels & Resorts

Style: Hotel

Number of Rooms: 82

Avalon Springs Resort has long become a “hotspot” for annual family holidays in the Western Cape. Just two hours’ drive from Cape Town, guests will find themselves frolicking in this watery arena of steamy pools, while enjoying all the benefits a resort-style holiday has to offer. The service is top-notch, the atmosphere effortless, and the accommodation plentiful, ranging from hotel rooms and chalets to self-catering studio apartments and even wheelchair-friendly garden suites.

While soaking up the mineral-rich waters is a remedy for the body at this family-friendly resort near Montagu, the surrounding views are just the right remedy for the soul, stretching out far beyond the glorious vistas of orchards and craggy mountains.

The on-site Cogman’s Restaurant and Avacabana Bar ensure that you’ll never go hungry (or thirsty) during your stay, with other facilities including a children’s play area, a cafe, lounge and private spa. Avalon Springs offers more great activities such as hiking along the nearby trails, teeing off on the putt-putt greens and swinging a few rounds on the tennis court. The main draw of Avalon Springs is of course, the natural hot springs, the town of Montagu just down the way, offers a treasure trove of activities, restaurants, quirky padstalls, and lively locals.

While the levels of luxury enjoyed are much improved since the first recorded discovery of the springs, bubbling out from crude hollows in the rock at Cogman’s Kloof, they are as natural and perfect as they have always been.
