The property is well designed and all you need for some R&R. Make sure you bring along ALL you need - as the access road is not great at all - especially if using a rental vehicle.

Except for the fact that Miles and Jean are wonderful hosts, this is the cleanest, best maintained accommodation I have EVER stayed at. The staff was also very friendly and helpful. Would return any day.

We spent 5 nights during the 2nd week of Feb here. It is a lovely property out in the wild perched on a hilltop overlooking the bush with fantastic views that seem to go on for ever. We stayed in a modern well equipped chalet which was superbly finished with attention to every detail and need. Miles and Jean are...

Had a wonderful stay at isiLimela Game Lodge, saw a rhino on the sunset game drive and had beautiful views of the mountains and stars. The rooms are amazing and the outdoor shower was a treat! Would definitely recommend isiLimela for a relaxing escape to the Lowveld.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Overlooking the bushveld and Drakenburg mountains, isiLimela Game Lodge self-catering chalets are located 42 km north of Hoedspruit in the Parsons Nature Reserve, which lies on the northern bank of the mighty Olifants River, and forms part of the 40,000 ha Balule Private Nature Reserve. This small and exclusive self-catering bush camp is ideal for bush lovers to use as a base, to explore the natural beauty of the Panorama Route and the surrounding attractions the area has to offer. Alternatively, just chill out to the sights and sounds of the bush, or do absolutely nothing but stare at the views of the Drakensberg Mountains and bushveld. isiLimela Lodge is situated in the eastern lowveld which has a subtropical climate with hot, wet summers and warm, dry winters. The lodge is owner-managed and the infrastructure is all situated on land owned by the lodge. The owners subscribe to the conservation objectives set out in the Parsons Nature Reserve constitution and have adopted a policy of non-interference with nature, and aspire to live in harmony with nature and minimize their impact on the environment. ... more   less
