Did you know that the Cape Porcupine is the largest rodent in Southern Africa? This species is found throughout southern and central Africa, including South Africa, Kenya, Uganda, and the Congo. And as the official Needles Lodge logo it’s one of our favourite animals!

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.
Food is amazing,hospitality nice and seeing the animals are great.

There are many people who do not know what a Pangolin is. I suppose this is because they are mostly nocturnal and live in burrows, so they are very seldom seen. Conservationists are constantly learning and gathering data through the rescue and rehabilitation programs which have been established.
