You deserve to give back to yourself and your loved ones. You deserve to reconnect. And what better way to do so than at an affordable four-star lodge in the African bush. Warthogs, giraffe, zebra, kudu, wildebeest and impala wander around Needles Lodge. As you get up close and personal with them, you will experience their lives – and the heart of the African bush. At this warm, owner-run lodge, your comfort, your experience, and your needs are our top priority.
We offer eight beautifully appointed suites, each with its own character and atmosphere and all the luxuries to ensure a comfortable stay in the bush.
From your bed, you can see out into the bush. Watch as the animals that regularly visit the lodge wander past your suite. Or walk through the large sliding doorway leading onto the railed wooden deck, which links back to the central deck.
