How would you like to experience the best-kept secret of Carolina? Traveling to one of the most luxurious Lodges in Mpumalanga like Komati Gorge Lodge is nothing special, but after all the unexciting scenery between Machadodorp and Carolina, the sight of our 4 Star Lodge nestled in a breathtaking mini canyon is a surprising sight indeed.

From the towering red rock faces, the abundant aloe plants and the wildlife that roams the reserve, this 4 Star Lodge is surrounded by breathtaking things to see and can offer you more than just luxury accommodation. Our rooms, suites and cottages are individually and stylishly decorated to suit our guests’ needs and they are all serviced every day. They are all thatch-roofed and equipped with all kinds of commodities for your convenience.
This 4 Star Lodge is one of the only Lodges in Mpumalanga that has a fly fishing dam on the property and about 12km of the Komati River runs through the reserve. There are quite a few designated spots for fly fishing along this stretch of the river and, chances are good, you will catch a nice big trout or yellowfish during the course of your stay with us.

Unlike all the other Lodges in Mpumalanga, Komati Gorge Lodge has over 10 outdoor activities for your entertainment.
