the heartbeat of Africa



The Lookout Safari Lodge is located within the malaria free Dinokeng Big 5 Game Reserve, a short 30 min drive from Pretoria, Gauteng, South Africa or approximately 70minutes drive from OR. Tambo International Airport. The name of the lodge originates from the view offered from the central lodge area which overlooks a natural dam which attracts various game species, including the Big 5, allowing the guest to enjoy game sightings from the comfort of the lodge area.

The Lookout Safari Lodge is designed around a central entertainment area raised on to a high platform ensuring unsurpassed views over the bush. The entertainment area offers a seating and viewing area, dining area for 10 and a fully equipped kitchen and built in braai. The fire pit next to the swimming pool and entertainment area allows for evenings spent under the stars around a crackling fire. And in the daytime guest can soak up the summer sun lounging next to the splash pool.

If game viewing is no longer an option the lounge also offers DSTV facilities.

The Lookout Safari Lodge offers 4 luxury non – smoking self-catering tented chalets, each uniquely designed to cater for privacy and to maximise the bush experience for the visiting guest. The en–suite chalets are ideally suited for a couple’s romantic weekend getaway. Each chalet has a small equipped kitchen and a patio dining area as well as its own private bushveld boma and braai/barbeque facility, providing the opportunity to enjoy the perfect camp fire under starry lit African skies.

The Lookout Safari Lodge can also be booked in its entirety by small groups or friends, being it a family gathering for a special event or an executives’ “bos beraad” or “lekgotla”.

Guest visiting the Lookout Safari Lodge has the optionality to view game in the comfort of their own vehicle through selfdrive game viewing routes offered by the Dinokeng Game Reserve or to book a game drive which is conducted in an open safari game viewer vehicle.

Notwithstanding the Big 5 roaming the area, the Lodge and its surrounding area is a birders paradise, ideal for bird watching.
