Metsi Lodge

Metsi lodge grew from a dream to create an exclusive safari home in the serenity of the South African bushveld.

Having the lodge to yourself allows for a completely relaxed and intimate environment to be shared only with family and friends.

Hippos, wildebeest, impala and waterbuck are amongst the regular visitors to our deck front dam allowing for ongoing wildlife entertainment whether you are perched on the deck, wallowing in the pool or reclining in your most comfortable room.

The scenically gorgeous Waterberg mountains are the backdrop for game drive safaris on which all ages are welcome. Game drives are tailored to each groups interest, be they the more illustrious big mammals, feathered friends or the smaller oddities and abundant plant life often overlooked.

Our chef Maria ensures all palates are heartily catered to by preparing a unique menu for every group and her fine cuisine is raved about on all guest comment pages.

We look forward to indulging you in a most memorable safari experience with your closest companions. Booking are for a minimum of 3 nights to ensure everyone has the proper opportunity to appreciate the tranquil pace of the African bush.
