The location was wonderful. It felt great to be out in the wilderness. The accommodation was quaint and I felt like I was on a very comfortable safari. The tent chalets were clean and very comfortable. The bathrooms were also very comfortable. I loved the fact that the shower, whilst it has privacy, it was in the open and i...

Butjani lodge is a gem near Cullinan. My husband and I stayed there for the weekend because we wanted to visit Cullinan and the mine. Butjani was a highlight of our great weekend. The location is a gorgeous country setting and John and Penny are the loveliest hosts. We really enjoyed the accommodations, the meals, the scenery, the wildlife sightings...

John and Penny, the hosts, made such an extraordinary effort to make this weekend extra special. Glorious food, 5 Sparkling wines paired with our special brunch, a lovely game drive with a stunning sundowner sunset. Great dinner and breaksfast. The permament tented rooms are nicely setup, clean and comfortable under a thatched roof, on stilts, with a permanent full bathroom...

John and Penny were amazing hosts. The accommodation is rustic, comfortable and the place is very well taken care of. The bathrooms (and outside shower) are a highlight. The staff are very helpful and always willing to accommodate any request where possible. I'd recommend this place to anyone and will certainly be back.

An hour away from Joburg and closeby to the cultural and quaint town of Cullinan, this is a hidden gem for those wanting a quick getaway! The rooms are neat and clean, uniquely designed as "tented lodges". The pool area is world class and all one needs or wants for a family weekend away. The catering is wholesome and delicious...

Two things stand out in this lovely peaceful place: the people and the food. The food is on another level, really really good, freshly prepared and delicious. Beautifully presented. The people, staff and owners, are really kind and thoughtful, nothing is too much trouble. We missed the proper star gazing evening events with the astronomer organized by the lodge, and...

Butjani Lodge far exceeded our expectations! We were there during the winter. The tents were warm and toasty with all the comforts of home. The hosts, John and Penney were were friendly and knowledgeable. I felt like I was visiting with long lost friends. The food was fantastic! We were able to see wildebeasts, giraffes and zebras at very close...
