Nestled on the slopes of the Sabie River valley in Hazyview, Tanamera Lodge is an idyllic stayover just a 30-minute drive from the Kruger National Park's Phabeni Gate. Seven thatched chalets provide the perfect pre- or post-safari retreat within close proximity of South Africa’s signature Big 5 reserve as well as other attractions such as God's Window, the Blyde River Canyon and the historic mining town of Pilgrim's Rest.

Unwind on your chalet’s furnished verandah while soaking up the views of the surrounding lowveld forest and listening to the tranquil sound of the river flowing below. Birding from the lodge is spectacular, with a host of different resident and migrant species to be seen from the deck, and in the forested area around the beautifully appointed chalets. A refreshing dip in your private plunge pool provides glorious valley views while relaxing around the fireplace in your sitting room is the perfect antidote for a chilly winter’s night.

If you would like to supplement your peaceful relaxation at Tanamera Lodge with other activities, enjoy Big 5 game viewing in nearby Kruger National Park and other fun-filled adventures on offer in the surrounding Sabie area, like hiking, birding, hot-air ballooning, abseiling, white-water rafting, elephant encounters and horseback safaris.

"The setting is so beautiful, in the woods, overlooking a stream. The stone shower is great but you won't feel like getting out of the huge bathtub as the view from there is so spectacular!"
