Makumu Private Game Lodge

Three luxury villas, Bushman Villa, Nbebele Villa, Zulu Villa to choose from and a tented camping site for the more adventurous. The Bushman Villa captures the minimalistic lifestyle of the Bushmen. Has its origin in the calmness and reverence for the abundance provided by the gods: eggs for water storage, and the wild animals for food and skins. The gods provide them with spoor to track the herds and, in thanks for this, their energetic hunt is captured by the slain animals’ blood on the rock faces.

The Nbebele Villa is decorated in a contemporary African theme, the use of bold and vibrant earthly colours in this suite create an ambiance of warmth, solitude and elegance. Attention to detail, whether in the intricate and delicately crafted bead work, or in the bold use of vibrant colours, each design and marking represents the history and ancient culture of the Ndebele people.

Refreshingly cool calming yet invigorating life giving water revives your senses and your soul.

The Zulu Villa Decorated in the theme of the Zulu. Bold striking colors and elegant bead work, have rich symbolism in the Zulu kingdom. Bead work is regarded as a symbol of communication between the sexes. For instance, a beaded necklace worn by a Zulu maiden in a certain manner, will deter any unwanted advances from potential suitors. Color plays an integral part in the symbolism of the bead work of the Zulu women. Colors such as green, blue, red, black, white, yellow and pink all have positive connotations. Zulu Suite With the walls adorned with the shield and assegai, the unwavering spirit of the Zulu warrior-brave, aggressive and utterly fearless-is elegantly reflected in the suite’s stylish design. A twin bedroom adjoins the main suite, without compromising privacy, with an en-suite bathroom,excluding bath. This twin room lends itself to understated splendor and is suitable for children or two guests sharing.
