"the lodge is so beautiful; the property is really in the wild with amazing landscape and the garden a jewel!"


- Celine (TripAdvisor)




Mountain Lodge is the proud new Eco Lodge addition to the Kaingo Private Game Reserve family and is situated on a mountain plateau with a spectacular view over the majestic Mokolo river gorge. The essence here is privacy and exclusive use, and the lodge simply had to complement and enhance being out in the bush – not compete with it.


This exclusive-use lodge with 4 detached suites, accommodates a maximum of 8 guests at a time, in their own private bush lodge. The lodge’s unique position necessitated an ecologically friendly design including total reliance on renewable energy from the local solar electricity plant. Those seeking a digital detox will find it here! Set on the border of the Big Five area and the botanical area, which is home to general game, it offers a safe area where kids can play and roam at will, and guests have the freedom to walk and explore.


It offers superior exclusivity in understated luxury game lodge accommodation, warm hospitality and friendly service with tranquil views that will be savoured by even the most discerning nature lover. The classic camp layout is built using local stone and thatch that blend into the natural surroundings, setting the scene to give our guests the most memorable and unique bushveld safari experience! Accommodating only 8 guests it is perfect for families, groups of friends and special occasions that is best enjoyed in exclusivity. Your private staff of 5, including your own private guide, hostess, chef, butler and housekeepers will take care of your every single wish.

Lounge and Pool


An ideal place to relax with a good book or soak up the surrounding scenery, the lounge and pool deck are excellent vantage spots from which to take in the breathtaking views. Alternatively, cool off in the plunge pool whilst enjoying the infinite view of the valley at sunset, perhaps with an ice-cold G&T.




Breakfast and lunch are served in the elegant, open-sided dining room, which offers an enchanting dining experience. Décor is contemporary, understated and inspired by surrounding nature. The outdoor boma and patio is the favoured setting for dinner, weather permitting. Illuminated by firelight and starry skies, diners will enjoy diverse and tasteful cuisine conjured by a chef right before their eyes. Open fires are often used for cooking too, in true African style.
