Ukutula Lodge

Ukutula Lodge

Ukutula Lodge is a luxury 4 Star Hospitality venue situated in the North West province, South Africa.
Known as the “place of quiet”, the lodge is nestled in lush bushveld where the roar of the lion can be heard for miles around. Ukutula is conveniently situated within an hour’s drive from Johannesburg and Pretoria. The reserve comprises 260 hectares of unspoiled bushveld boasting a variety of wildlife species, including predator and antelope species, giraffe, zebra and more. Ukutula is also home to more than 130 different bird species.

Since our inception in 2006, the owners of Ukutula have focused on providing visitors with a top African hospitality experience combined with unforgettable wildlife experiences. We believe that only through personally experiencing Africa’s natural beauty and wildlife, people will be inspired to support wildlife conservation through gained knowledge, care, compassion, and a wildlife ethic.

Ukutula Lodge offers 4 Star graded self-catering accommodation, a licensed restaurant and bar, a beautiful African lounge, a well-stocked curio shop, two beautiful swimming pools, a bush boma, helipad, wifi, 24/7 security, and lots more. Special accommodation and dining facilities are also available for wildlife/veterinary students and volunteers.

In addition, the Ukutula school camp facilities include 3 double story wooden dormitories, educators’ accommodation, ablution block, separate kitchen, kiosk, large dining hall/lecture hall, large swimming pool, tennis & volleyball courts, rock climbing wall, obstacle course, well-trained & experienced facilitators and much more.

Since 2006, Ukutula has also supported and applied the IUCN’s One-Plan-Approach (OPA) to Species Conservation and Animal Breeding Principals. In fact, due to Ukutula’s commitment to endangered wildlife conservation, the owners took it upon themselves and personally funded the establishment of the Ukutula Conservation Center (UCC) – a world-class wildlife research and education facility, including a scientific Bio-bank for endangered wildlife species. Research results obtained by researchers at the UCC have already contributed significantly to the conservation of endangered mammal species globally – read more.

Ukutula game reserve also includes a newly build cheetah clinic as part of its cheetah facility.

A Unique & Unforgettable Experience!
