Sediba Game Lodge is situated in the magnificent, malaria-free Welgevonden Game Reserve, renowned worldwide for its rich biodiversity, including the Big 5. This exclusive Lodge is divided into two sections, namely Letlapa and Letlapala, a 10-minute drive apart from one another by gravel road.
Letlapa, meaning “rock” in the local language, offers guests ten double suites and lies in a valley with a perennial stream running through it. Letlapa’s striking design and the sheer size of the suites make it the more impressive of Sediba’s two Lodges. While Letlapala, meaning “place of the sun,” is the more intimate Lodge with only five double suites and one main area. Its secluded atmosphere is assured by the fact that Letlapala is nestled between the towering indigenous trees on one of Welgevonden’s numerous wooded slopes.
No detail has been overlooked to ensure Sediba Lodge provides guests a tranquil haven and a truly unique African wilderness experience. Clearly inspired by the natural environment, the emphasis at the Lodge is on organic design elements and minimalist décor. This fresh, contemporary style is evident in each of Sediba’s 15 luxurious suites, lending them an air of refined serenity.
Each sumptuous suite features an open-plan sitting area, fireplace, spacious double bedroom, en-suite bathroom, outdoor shower, mini-bar, air-conditioning, tea and coffee making facilities plus a private wooden terrace with a built-in Jacuzzi where you can enjoy a rejuvenating soak as you take in the majestic views of the distant Waterberg mountains. Furthermore, one of Sediba’s suites has been built to provide wheelchair access.
A stay at Sediba Lodge is your opportunity to enjoy the best Welgevonden, and the greater Waterberg area has to offer. Adventure activities include twice daily game drives in 4X4 open jeeps with experienced, knowledgeable rangers on hand to point out the various fauna and flora you’re likely to encounter. The afternoon game includes a sundowner stop with drinks and snacks; what better way to end to celebrate a fabulous day on safari. Private game drives can be arranged on request. For a chance to get a more up-close- and-personal perspective on Welgevonden’s pristine bushveld and its resident bird- and wildlife be sure to visit the Lodge’s secluded viewing hides.
Inbetween, take a break from your thrilling wilderness ventures to put in some serious downtime alongside the invitingly cool swimming pool. Or spoil yourself with a glorious array of indulgent health and beauty treatments in Sediba’s professional salon. Available treatments include aromatherapy, facials, pedicures and various massages, and can always be administered in the privacy of your suite if you wish. And fitness enthusiasts will be happy to learn that Letlapa houses a fully-equipped gym plus sauna/steam room, both of which are complementary and can be used at any time without guests needing to make a booking.
Sediba Lodge prides itself on its world-class hospitality, and guests can be certain of personal service around the clock. Mealtimes are no exception, and Sediba’s delectable gourmet cuisine, well-stocked wine cellar, and delightful dining venues are bound to leave a lasting impression.
If you’re looking for a Lodge where you can experience the ultimate in African bushveld breakaways without compromising on your creature comforts or modern conveniences, you’ll find Sediba’s Letlapa and Letlapa accommodation options more than live up to your expectations.
