Sheltered beneath a canopy of trees in the African bushveld just two kilometres from Askari, on the Plumari Private Reserve, Warthogs Bush Lodge is an intimate, rustic lodge that is superb for a relaxing getaway from city life. It is also ideal for exclusive bookings, family gatherings, small conferences and weddings. With warthog, kudu, blesbok and rooihartebees strolling by, you’ll find it hard to believe that you’re so close to the city.
The bush lodge can accommodate up to 20 guests in 10 thatched chalets that are comfortably furnished, have private wooden decks, and luxury en-suite bathrooms with semi-outdoor showers. There is also a tented lodge with six tents, and two tented stands, each with four tents. These have kitchenettes, braai areas and ablution facilities. Two caravan sites with ablution facilities complete the accommodation options. The lodge facilities include two pools for cooling off on hot days, a traditional hut-shaped dining area, and a convivial boma for enjoying a good bottle of wine around a roaring fire with friends and family.
There are plenty of outdoor activities to choose from such as trail walks and runs, and mountain biking.
Warthogs Bush Lodge is excellent for small conference groups and has a conference room that can seat up to 20 delegates. Its close proximity to Johannesburg and Pretoria also makes Warthogs ideal for day conferences and there is a thatched lapa with canvas sides that can be set up in theatre style for up to 180 delegates.
Spa treatments can also be booked at Askari Lodge.
