A mere two hours drive away from Johannesburg, yet far from city lights; this is the ideal bushveld getaway for those who are too busy to take time out. The Ezingweni Safari Lodge and Day Bush Spa are situated in the southern range of the Waterberg Mountains, halfway between Bela Bela Warmbaths and Modimolle (Nylstroom) in Limpopo. The Lodge and Spa are owned and run by Cas and Monica Castelyn who ensure all guests receive individual attention, making their stay a delightful and memorable occasion and leaving them with a desire to return to the beauty of the bush at Ezingweni, place of the leopard.
What makes the spa so distinctive is that it floats on a pond near which lead to crystal clear river streams, embodying African luxury and sumptuous surroundings.
The therapists are seen as keepers of the water, capturing nature’s powerful healing essences through touch, smell and taste. The vast menu offers treatments ranging from Dermalogica facials to countless stress-relieving massages using Moya body products. There are signature treatments with names like African Journey or a couple’s Moonlight treatment in the blissful double room, with champagne, strawberries and scalp and hot stone massages. All the treatments are uniquely designed to suit guests’ individual needs.
The main lodge boasts a games room, conference facility, bar and restaurant which opens up onto a wooden deck overlooking the spectacular bush and surrounding mountains.
The lodge accommodation is self-catering and all suites include a private spa pool on an outside deck. The enormous open-air fireplace, close to the spa pool, allows for a magnificent bonfire under the stars as you listen to the night sounds of the bushveld.
Activities include game drives, quad and mountain biking, hiking trails, clay pigeon shooting, horseback riding, paintball and swimming in one of the many waterholes the river offers. Ezingweni hosts team-building or conferences for companies and is perfect for special celebrations. Packages are designed to suit each guest’s requirements, so whether guests seek relaxation, action, or an elegant wedding setting, Ezingweni will fulfil your dreams.
