Stay in your own 2-story family unit from only ZAR 1400 per night for a family of 4 including breakfast


For accommodation in Tzaneen this is the place to be ... in the heart of the north eastern lowveld of the magical Limpopo Province in South Africa - you will find the Tzaneen Country Lodge with its new Earth Spa. The tastefully decorated Tzaneen Country Lodge offers world-class hospitality, discreet security and outstanding service. Exclusive and private, the lodge is nestled on 150 hectares of farmland and indigenous forest.

The family units are equipped with braai area outside, kitchen and lounge on the ground floor and 2 bedrooms and a bathroom on the first floor, sleeping 4 easily.

Activities and fun for kids and adults alike. Mangela Animalzippy_tzaneen_country_lodge Touch Farm, Tea Garden and Curio Shop provides it all. Meet, touch and feed our friendly animals, Jacob the donkey, our miniature ponies Maya, Misty, Pepe and Inca. We have ostriches, emus, pot-bellied pigs, goats, ducks, chickens, rabbits and more! Pony rides available with supervision by the friendly and helpful staff.

The lodge offers a choice of activities to suit a wide variety of interests and age groups. There are different trails of various lengths which can be used for walking, jogging or cycling. They can also be used by those interested in the trees, birds and animals of the region. If you don't want to walk or cycle you can also take a horse. If you wish to neither walk or ride there is even a canoe or two for paddling, fishing or birding from the water. We have a barge for both serious Bass fishermen and for relaxation.

A family can combine all these activities with a picnic where we can deliver not only the picnic to the site near the water but also Grandpa and Grandma if they don't wish to walk, paddle or ride. You could be doing all this while our baby sitting service takes care of the kids at the Animal Farm and Playground or Spa lovers are being pampered at the Spa. Serious fishermen can enjoy trophy bass fishing on a catch and release basis. We also have swimming pools to relieve the boredom or the summer heat and a fitness studio for the healthy. To add variety and keep the family busy in the evenings or on a rainy day, there is a pool table, table tennis, darts, table soccer and many board games for fun and stimulation.

With its world class facilities consisting of a superbly equipped fitness studio, outdoor pool, sauna and steam room, sun bed and three treatments rooms the Earth Spa offer a diverse range of treatments and therapies from facials to specialised massage therapy.
