Take time out from your busy schedule, book a weekend away at Makhato 84 and in a short while you can be sitting around a glowing fire, listening to the sounds of the bushveld and breathing in fresh air under the milky way.
Makhato 84 is a bush lodge located in the Sondela Nature Reserve in the Limpopo Province, which is just outside the town of Bela-Bela. It is approximately 90 minutes from Johannesburg International Airport and Sandton. The lodge is one of few units with an undisturbed view and with the perk of having no neighbours nearby. Sondela offers a variety of wildlife interaction, nature walks, horse and quad safaris. At Makhato 84 you are guaranteed to see Njalas (which are exceptionally tame and love all kinds of fruit), giraffe, blouwildebeest, zebra, warthog, meerkat and many other species - right there on your doorstep!
