Big 5 Game Lodge

Big 5

Beautiful Views

Amazing Experiences

Incredible Memories

Situated in the 50 000 hectare privately owned Balule Nature Reserve, adjacent and open to the greater Kruger National Park system, the Greenfire Game Lodge is isolated and in a totally natural environment. A small luxury game lodge where no effort is spared, and the experience is personal and relaxed.

The diversity of vegetation within the reserve ensures that good game sightings are guaranteed, and besides the “Big 5” we are especially proud of the abundant bird life and smaller mammals attracted by the riverine forest and open plains. Our qualified staff will explain the intricacies of the bush in detail.
