We love Africa. We love the African people. We love the African culture. We love the African lifestyle. We love the African bush & the African wildlife. And we also love 5-star luxury, fabulous cuisine, great wines and being pampered too!

South Africa is a huge and diverse country. Visitors who choose to visit remote game parks often have to spend many days of their precious holiday time travelling.

The Dinokeng Game Reserve [DGR] is the only Big 5 Game Reserve located in the north of the malaria-free province of Gauteng, and is only a 1-hour drive from OR Tambo International Airport and Johannesburg, and a mere 35-minute drive from Pretoria/Hatfield.

We set out to develop an intimate, luxurious boutique hotel set within the beautiful African bush, and also offering a magnificent restaurant and bar, all to cater for no more than 30 special guests at a time.

In Room Facilities:


Beautiful luxurious villa 100m2 with direct and private view to the bush. The traditional thatched roof villa consists of a large bedroom with a comfortable king-sized bed, convenient kitchenette with all you need and spacious bathroom with corner bath & step down shower. You can enjoy private splash pool with outside shower and outdoor sitting area.


Our luxurious suite is very generous in space 220m2 and consists of two ensuite bedrooms with king-size beds, desk and build-in wardrobe. Bathrooms are big and you can enjoy either corner bath or a spacious step-down shower. Both bedrooms share large living area with bar and kitchen. The outside area of the suite has a dining table with build in braai and also other comfortable sittings are at the other end. Enjoy the direct and private view to the bush from your swimming pool. Boma area with sitting space and outside shower is also part of the suite

Area Information:

The Dinokeng Game Reserve (DGR) is located in a beautiful area with many rivers in the northern part of the malaria-free province of Gauteng, in South Africa.

Property Facilities:

At Tiimm’s Bar you can relax in the intimate stylish environment or choose to sit out on our deck overlooking the waterhole while you sip a refreshing sun-downer.

Maatta’s Restaurant

Fine dining can be enjoyed at Maatta’s Restaurant where you can watch our experienced chefs preparing your meal using only the freshest ingredients and will savour our fine African & international cuisine. Alternatively, you may prefer to enjoy room service in your own private Suite or Villa, of course, the choice is entirely yours.


Outdoor sitting area with fireplace and barbeque (Braai)

There are few nicer feelings than being sat comfortably around a roaring fire listening to the calls of the Jackals and watching the bush and the braai [BBQ].

Swimming Pool

As well as your private pool at your Suite or Villa, our salt water swimming pool, located close to Tiimm’s Bar and Maatta’s Restaurant, is the perfect place to cool off during our warm summer months between October and April.

We had an awesome one nights stay and upgraded to the fully inclusive food and drink package with a game drive. Khabeer and his staff are extremely welcoming and friendly. Food was great and alcohol was flowing. The accommodation was first class and the en suite swimming pool was warm. Game drive great and drinks and snacks set up during the drive was a 5 star touch. It is more of a boutique lodge so you get the personal touch. The beauty is the close proximity of the reserve to Pretoria and Joburg. we will be back in winter when the grass is a little shorter. Cheers.

Dinokeng Game Reserve Reviews

Matsidiso Hashatse
28 April 2021

Love the location as it helps one to easily getaway from the buzz of the city without the long drives. Seeing animals and the picnic spots thay have. Secure fencing arond the lodges and animals roaming around the lodge. We need to see the Elephants, Lions, leopard. The landmark to crimson and the google map was accurate. A day visit to the reserve and the Restaurants.

Game Drives and self-drive routes were really cool. We enjoyed it and did not find it as bad as the previous reviews said.
The animals were a little scarce after the many rains, but we saw 9 Jackal in 2 days which is not something that happens often.
We will definitely be back.

I enjoyed it most because it was a quick break and not too far from JHB to travel and it does have the big 5.

The Nyani Lodge natural relaxation situation and Mongena Game Lodge the nature itself of animals. Location and directions were convenient and easy to get.
