We can also cater for groups between 20 and 60 guests using 20 to 30 rooms (luxury rooms and guesthouses) and the main lodge as conference and entertainment space.

Mackouwkuil’s 13 beautiful, thatched guestrooms, and the 12 newly upgraded luxury rooms are tucked away amid the bushveld behind the main lodge. All 25 rooms accommodate one or two guests and are furnished with elegant African wooden beds with superior linens, writing desks, and comfortable occasional chairs, complemented with striking photography of local wildlife. All rooms have air-conditioning, Wi-Fi, safe and en-suite bathroom with amenities, fluffy towels, and a hair dryer. Luxury rooms are also fitted with bar fridges and all rooms have their own coffee stations.

We make sure you enjoy the serene 24-hour wildlife setting with its sights and sounds, and you can relax, knowing you will not be distracted by a television in any of the rooms.


Boasting unparalleled views right on the water, our four luxury tents have been described as “6-star”, each with private decks. The tents are situated a short walk away from the main lodge and are connected with safe walkways to the rock pool and fire-pit areas which offer a most unique African setting. All tents are twin-bedded, air-conditioned and equipped with modern en-suite bathrooms, each with outdoor showers. Combined, the tents can host 6 (single) to 10 (sharing) guests and our 2 mountain guesthouses can jointly accommodate another 4 to 6 guests, each in their own room, ideal for executive retreats and planning.
