Be Part of the Herd
A Relaxing Stay


Situated in the heart of the reserve, Illanga Manor House was imagined in the typical Cape Dutch style. Like an oasis in the middle of the desert, its welcoming green lawns and lush setting belies the surrounding landscape. The lodge has 11 spacious rooms that have a feeling of yesteryear, yet are completely modern in their offering. With a convivial home-away-from-home feel, the lodge has many spaces to congregate and relax – from the large and inviting swimming pool to the intimate bar and the little library. Ilanga features the rich history of the area and the Anglo Boer War throughout, making it a historians dream.

With its thatched roofs and wooden accents throughout, the lodge is warm and homely. Each suite has a shower and bathtub, as well as luxe toiletries and a hairdryer. A private bar fridge, as well as coffee- and tea-making facilities, and a large flatscreen TV complete the package. WiFi is available throughout the lodge at no additional cost. Cellular phone signal may be limited at times.

With two set game drives daily – one early morning and one late afternoon – guests have the opportunity to get up close to some of nature’s rarest animals, as well as experience epic sunrises and sunsets. Chilly morning drives are made cozier with luxe blankets, piping flasks of coffee and a few rusks too. Sunset drives are brisker and invigorating, ending with a bush-side sundowner stop, where your tipple of choice and a selection of snacks will help you unwind and take in the beauty of the land.
