Phumelelo Lodge Bed & Breakfast Accommodation In Bela-Bela - Warmbaths

ABOUT PHUMELELO LODGE

Phumelelo Lodge is an authentic African experience and exclusive but affordable luxury accommodation, offering air-conditioned / heated en-suite, African themed chalets with private balconies all round. The rooms have private decks where you can view the game below at the river or on the mountain across from the lodge and guests have the luxury of a bath, indoor and outdoor showers for that exhilarating 'Out of Africa' experience. An all day tea & coffee, hot chocolate & gourmet biscuit & rusks refreshment station for the convenience of our guests in each room with DSTV satellite TV in each luxury room.

Sitting up on a hill in the Waterberg Mountains overlooking a river, near Bela-Bela, Phumelelo Lodge is located in the greater Mabalingwe Nature Reserve - a Malaria free area of Limpopo Province and home to the "Big 5" (Lions in separate high security enclosure). It takes only 2 hours to reach Phumelelo Lodge from Johannesburg (O R Tambo Airport) and just about an hour and 30 minutes from Pretoria, travelling via the N1 to Polokwane.

Phumelelo Lodge has traversing rights to over more than 12,000 hectares of a malaria free private game reserve which is home to Elephant, Lion, Leopard, Rhino, Hippo, Buffalo, Giraffe, Zebra, Wildebeest, Hyena, Warthog, and a wide variety of antelope / plains game and bountiful bird life.

Offering 4 uniquely positioned, luxury styled African themed thatch chalets, each unit is luxuriously furnished with climate controlled air-conditioning for maximum comfort. The rooms have private all round deck patios with comfortable waterproof outdoor furniture, perfect for lazy afternoons.

The thatched central lodge complex has a romantically appointed dining area; an intimate lounge with feature fireplace; a cocktail bar with viewing deck overlooking the floodlit waterhole; a cozy open-air bush boma, swimming pool with large sundeck, and indoor / outdoor lounging area. The elevated 'upper deck' offers stunning views across the plains and river and the quiet solitude of this private location makes it the perfect place to witness sensational sunsets, whilst savouring the moment with a sundowner cocktail.

ROOMS

Guests have a choice of either shower and bath and outdoor shower for that uniquely different 'Out of Africa' experience! All rooms are equipped with electric hairdryers and power sockets. All rooms are non-smoking. All rooms are fitted with flat screen TV's and DSTV hotel channels. Each room has tea and coffee and hot chocolate making facilities with complimentary rusks & gourmet biscuits as well as special bathroom amenities, fully serviced with evening turn down service.

ACTIVITIES

Phumelelo Lodge has traversing rights over more than 12, 000 hectares malaria free private game reserve - home to the "Big 5"

Animals include: Elephant, Lion, Leopard, Rhino, Hippo, Buffalo, Giraffe, Zebra, Wildebeest, Hyena, Warthog, a wide variety of antelope / plains game and bountiful bird life. Guests can enjoy an early morning or afternoon game drive with an experienced ranger in our open 4 x 4 game vehicle, with individually contoured bucket seats for the comfort of each passenger. These game drives include snacks and drinks, and blankets for those chilly winter evenings.

Like many other Private Game Reserves, the lions in our reserve are contained in a separate high security, fenced area of the reserve. It is necessary to book for a visit to the Mabalingwe Lion enclosure.

Cost on request including transport to and from the Lion camp and Phumelelo Lodge. Visits to the lion enclosure at Mabalingwe should be pre-booked after arrival and will be subject to space availability, based on the limited number of permitted visitors for each scheduled game drive / viewing experience. Visitors are not always guaranteed to see the lions as they can be elusive!

We recommend an excursion to visit the lion cubs, cheetah run and snakes at Zebula Golf Estate & Spa where Phumelelo Lodge guests will have access to the hotel, golf course, shop & health spa. It is located just 20 minutes drive from the Lodge in our 4 x 4 vehicle, via our private access road through the reserve with an opportunity for an additional game drive along the way. Green fees, hire of golf clubs & golf carts are available to guests of Phumelelo Lodge at special rates and transfers to / from Zebula can be provided by the Lodge in our 4 x 4 vehicle, and should be arranged on arrival.

Gold Clubs are available for use at the lodge.

Why the $elect Stays initiative?

  1. Encourage and boost local tourism through making holidays more affordable.
    This is achieved by offering locals a 15% saving. The same 15% that would have left our shores had it been paid as commission to an International Booking site.
  2. Reduce the dependancy on large International Booking sites.
    This is achieved by building up a loyal following of verified users who we will market to on an exclusive and regular basis to maximise the opportunity.
  3. Ensure more money stays within local tourism to benefit us all.
    It is no secret that the large International Booking sites pay no or very little tax to South Africa or Namibia. By taking back a little more control we boost our own economy, and in particular, our local tourism. This is good for us all.
    Read this article on how the Australian holiday accommodation sector is suffering in the same way.
  4. Exclusive.
    Only listings on Stays can participate, which means less competition for bookings.
How it works for accommodation-seekers:

Anyone can register as a $elect Stays member.
There are no costs involved to register as a member.
On registration, we issue them with a member number.
They use their member number when they send an enquiry.
The number is verified automatically BEFORE the enquiry is sent.
The property is notified on the enquiry that they are a verified member.
Property ensures that the quote includes a 15% saving.

Terms & Conditions

  1. The property (you) must offer the 15% saving to all verified members
  2. Verification is done automatically at the time of an enquiry. It is at the property’s discretion whether to offer the saving for a telephonic enquiry. (As you have no means to verify the membership number, it is advisable to get them to do a formal enquiry so they can be verified).
  3. If the property is currently running a "Special" greater than 15% then the "Special" price will apply. (No further savings needs to be offered). EXCEPT in the case where the "Special" is lower than 15%. In that case the 15% will apply.
    Example: A property offering a 10% discount, must offer an additional 5% discount to valid members - so they get a total 15% saving.
  4. The property must offer valid members the saving all year round. (Properties that pick and chose in which seasons to participate run the risk of being removed from the programme completely. Allowing selective participation defeats the integrity of this initiative).
  5. The property must not inflate the price before the 15% is applied. Prices displayed should be the rack rate. (The official or advertised price of a room).
  6. The property must honour any bookings made while the property was participating as a $elect Stays property.
  7. The property must honour the agreement and the spirit in which the initiative is designed to benefit local tourism.
