Blue Sky Lodge is a private lodge high up on the hill with 8 en-suite bedrooms; Recently renovated with a stone fireplace, large kitchen with gas stove and a private pool deck. The lodge is serviced daily (except Sundays and Public Holidays) and has the DSTV Stay Essential hotel bouquet TV. During Lockdown the lodge is serviced every 2nd day only once guests have departed for the day. Guests may also elect to now have any servicing during Lockdown periods.

This lodge has the best pool deck and boma area of all the big lodges, so is perfect if you like to sit around the pool deck and enjoy the views over the dam.

This lodge is the best option for 13 or more guests.

There is a base rate for the 1st 4 or less guests sharing bedrooms in the Blue Sky Lodge. From the 5th guest upwards a charge of only R 300 per night per guest sharing applies. Please click the Book Now button and enter your exact number of guests and the system will automatically calculate the cost for the total number of guests.

Please note the cost calculations are based on 2 guests sharing per room either with a double bed or twin single beds, therefore for example if you only require 8 guests but with 8 private bedrooms, you would have to insert 16 guests to calculate the correct cost.

You have exclusivity as we only book the Blue Sky Private Lodge out to one group at a time, irrespective of the number of guests. If you for example only book for 8 guests, then we open 4 bedrooms and lock the extra bedrooms for housekeeping purposes.

For groups larger than 16 we recommend that you also book the 8 sleeper Sunset Private Lodge, as this lodge is next to the Blue Sky Private Lodge.
