Leisure Travel for Ngwenya Visitors

Leisure Travel for Ngwenya Visitors

The Ngwenya Lodge Team is elated to announce that intra-, as well as inter-, provincial travellers may, as per the relaxed level two regulations announced by President Cyril Ramaphosa on the 15th of August 2020, visit the Resort for a well-deserved holiday. Self-catering accommodation aligns perfectly with social-distancing practises while offering a tranquil environment and change of scenery after spending months locked indoors. Guests can relish in game-viewing from the comfort of a private patio overlooking the Crocodile River, or simply enjoy the peaceful surrounds and calls of the wild in the heart of the bush, alongside a crackling fire.

Providing a hygienic holiday environment for you, your family and loved ones to enjoy is our number one priority. To ensure that our own health and safety standards are met, as well as those enforced by the government, kindly take note of the following:

  • Up-to-date and accurate health and travel history documentation will be requested to be completed, per guest, upon arriving at the Resort.
  • All guests will be subject to temperature screening at the main entrance. Should the occupant of a vehicle read a temperature of 37.8°C or higher, the vehicle will not be permitted to enter the premises.
  • Guests are required to wear a mask in public areas at all times, as per the current government regulations.
  • It is recommended that guests keep their hands clean and refrain from touching public surfaces; sanitisation stations and handwashing facilities are available throughout the Resort.
  • To adhere to social-distancing protocols, all Chalets are sanitised and sealed before guests’ arrival; decorative pieces may have been removed from the unit and housekeeping will be kept to a minimum.
  • The Restaurant is open for sit-down service and take-aways. Operating hours can be viewed on our website here.
  • The Restaurant is permitted to sell alcohol for onsite consumption.
  • To abide by the new curfew, all public spaces and facilities on the property will be closed at 23:00 each night.
  • The Swimming Pools, Games Room and Jumping Pillow are open under strict capacity limitations.
  • Mbali Day Spa will be open for reservations only; kindly be in touch with the Resort directly to make a spa booking.
  • Guests are welcome to make use of the viewing deck and hides, provided social-distancing is adhered to.
  • Guests must adhere to the Resort Rules and Regulations while staying at Ngwenya Lodge.

We kindly ask all visitors to Ngwenya Lodge to also take note that the Kruger National Park has begun enforcing strict protocols at all Park access points:

  • Guests are required to wear a mask, when making use of public spaces.
