Pakamisa Private Game Lodge

Fully hosted and catered lodge

The name Pakamisa means "to lift up" in Zulu - and we assure our guests their spirits will soar in this African Shangri-La. We offer discerning visitors luxury accommodation, comfort and security with top class European cuisine amidst pristine African wilderness.

Pakamisa Lodge is majestically positioned in the spectacular mountainous region of northern Zululand in KwaZulu-Natal. The hotel is some 30km southwest of the small town of Pongola and is situated in the middle of its own extensive and private game reserve.

Superbly located on the high plateau of the Pakamisa Mountain, the lodge affords breathtaking views over the evergreen valley and plains of the Pongola River and the surrounding mountains.

Far away from any stress or hectic pace, our guests appreciate and enjoy the exclusive, intimate atmosphere - especially as accommodation is limited to a maximum of 16 guests.

The unique Italo-Spanish architecture and style of the Pakamisa Lodge blends the finest of European and African ambience.
