Welcome to Komati Gorge Lodge

ONE OF THE MOST ALLURING LODGES IN MPUMULANGA

A winding river, majestic cliffs, imposing krantzes and rolling hills – all these await you at Komati Gorge Lodge & Wildlife Reserve – one of the most alluring Lodges in Mpumalanga. This untouched expanse of more than 2500 hectares with its thorn bushveld and highveld grassland offers an unparalleled experience to lovers of the outdoors. Whether your interest is fishing, hiking, bird-watching, wildlife, boating, walking or just relaxing in a beautiful, tranquil setting, you’ll find what you want, and more at Komati Gorge.
Wherever you look, you will see breathtaking scenes of natural beauty. Mysterious gorges, dense forests, cascading water, indigenous trees and flora and creatures of all kinds – from a brightly coloured butterfly to a stately kudu. All these creations of nature in one place. Come to the resort and experience the joy and tranquility of Komati Gorge 4 Star Lodge. It is less than three hours from Johannesburg on the Drakensberg Escarpment in Mpumalanga between Carolina and Machadodorp.
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 3 fly fishing dams 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. Some of these include Horse Riding, Rock Climbing and 4X4 Game drives, to name but a few. We are a 4 Star Lodge that also offer Spa Treatments and a select few massages to take off that edge, all subject to advance booking.

We have quite a variety of game and other small animals on the reserve and surrounding areas. If you are interested in bird watching, there is a Bird List available at the reception reflecting which birds you can expect in this area and which have already been spotted on the reserve.

We currently have two marked hiking trails. The road going past the Lodge into the gorge offers beautiful scenery and the occasional spotting of baboons, monkeys and a variety of buck.

There are several lovely places for you to go on a picnic. Guests often take the canoes up to the weir and picnic there.

If you love hiking, peace, beautiful bushveld, interesting rock formations, mountains, waterfalls, fishing, birds and wildlife then you will love your stay at this little gem. Stay at least 3 nights to really get around and don’t miss the river canoeing. Thanks Sandy, Ross and the team for a wonderful weekend.

Superb. 5 out of 5
