The lodge has been built with the breathtaking views and our resident vultures in mind. Each of our nine tented suites is positioned to make the most of the dramatic landscapes and afford great sightings of these majestic birds of prey as they soar effortlessly above the 1800ha Cape Vulture Conservancy - our slice of African wilderness just 26km from the South African safari capital of Hoedspruit, in the heart of the Kruger to Canyons Biosphere Reserve.
Cape Vulture Lodge has been purposefully designed to immerse guests in the wonderful African wilderness that surrounds it while keeping its environmental footprint to an absolute minimum.
The spacious main lodge building and its expansive viewing decks are where you'll discover the meaning of "escape" as you relax to the songs of a myriad birds, enjoying the breathtaking views of the mountains beyond. With its spacious indoor and outdoor lounge and dining areas, sunken boma for evenings around a crackling log fire and fully stocked bar, this is the beating heart of Cape Vulture Lodge.
A pathway leads to the pool area with its sparkling swimming pool surrounded by another spacious deck dotted with comfortable loungers. This is the perfect place to cool off on a warm summer's afternoon or soak up the sunshine with a bottle of fine South African wine or an obligatory craft gin and tonic!
In the evening our lodge fire is lit in our sunken boma where you can gather for pre-dinner drinks to share the day's adventures. It's also the perfect place to end the evening, marveling at the diamond-studded night skies above you before heading off to bed.
These are the three pillars on which Cape Vulture Lodge and the Cape Vulture Conservancy have been founded. Underpinned by an exceptional guest experience that offers a unique combination of adventure, discovery, culture, community and conservation, Cape Vulture Lodge is also empowering and uplifting local people through employment, education and procurement, stimulating the local economy in the process.
