Boulders bush lodge,
place of majestic rock formations

Boulders Bush Lodge is situated against a background of beautiful and impressive rock formations in the north of the Kruger National Park.




Boulders Bush Lodge's accommodation units in the Kruger National Park in South Africa are encircled by green Seringa trees and large Baobab on a boulder covered hillside. That is how the camp got its name.

Boulders can be booked en bloc by a single party (maximum 12), enabling you to enjoy a completely private African bushveld and wildlife experience in luxurious style.

Boulders Lodge is as close to nature as possible and it is the only camp in the park that does not have a fence. The Lodge features a huge and luxurious thatched living area linked via wooden walkways to five chalets. All of it built on platforms raised on concrete stilts. A simple gate, two trees and a wire barrier is the main entrance. This should however not deter you. Because of the raised platforms, visitors can feel safe within the comfort of the thatched Lodge.
