Phakamani River Lodge is situated in the heart of the Balule / Parsons Nature Reserve which forms part of the Greater Kruger National Park and is located only 46km outside of Hoedspruit. Being positioned in a big-five reserve allows for minimal effort in getting immersed in nature and exploring the diverse reserve that surrounds the lodge. This wild and diverse reserve is home to the big five and overall a vast array of wildlife. The camp itself overlooks the lush and abundant Olifant’s River and it’s own waterhole, and many animals are drawn to this life source, especially in the dry winter months.
Both East-gate and Phalaborwa airport are an hour drive away, making it easily accessible for fly-in guests. While many might choose to self-drive from Johannesburg, which is a scenic 6-hour drive away. The lodge itself is easily accessible for self-drive guests, though a high-clearance vehicle is recommended.
